Alyzza Villareal

Alyzza Villarreal

 Licensed Esthetician and Cosmetologist / Bilingual Professional Sugaring Educator (English & Spanish)

My name is Alyzza Villarreal, similar to Alisa but with Z’s. I am a native San Diegan, operating my very first local business. I am a dual licensed professional in both Cosmetology since November 2012 and Esthetician since March 2014. I am also Make-Up Designory (MUD) certified since October 2011. 

I initially began my career path in 2011 when I started doing hair (cut, color, styling) and make up. In 2014, I changed directions, and I started waxing eyebrows. I worked at getting the brows perfected to ensure they always shaped correctly to one's face. Once I got comfortable with my work I furthered my skills and trained for sugaring. 

In September 2014, I got sugar certified. It wasn’t until March 2015 when I started working with the sugar on actual clients. It took me about 2 months to learn the sugar technique and about a year to speed up my time for the service(s). Once I had my technique nailed down I knew this was my true passion. I now hold 3 Sugar Certificates and am also now teaching sugaring for Sweet & True Sugaring Co. 

In April 2018, I opened up the doors to Beau Sucré. Beau Sucré means Beautiful Sugar. Since then, it has grown to be one of the most prominent spots in San Diego, guaranteeing quality and professionalism to all of my customers. I strive to educate my clients about sugaring and its incredible benefits, all while creating a fun, relaxed, and comfortable environment. There is nothing more important to me than my client's satisfaction, so being thorough is like second nature. I have always been committed to making my devoted customers look stunning and feel their best. 

I still do hair styling and make up for special events. I especially enjoy wedding events, particularly the moment when the bride is revealed and everyone pauses, as if to remind them of how truly special the day is, is the best part of my job. Taking off one less stress for the bride and giving her the best day ever is an amazing feeling.

 In all of my years of experience, I have found the passion to share my knowledge with peers, client’s, and all new upcoming professionals who want to learn/grow. I love all the backbar and retail products I use/sell because I truly believe they will help make your skin glow due to them being all natural, organic or botanically based! 

I love everything I do now and wouldn’t change it for the world.
