"Monica was excellent to work with and truly helped make my wedding day perfect!! Her and her assistant did hair and make-up for me, my bridesmaids, and the moms the entire morning before the ceremony. They were flexible and efficient in scheduling everyone to be done in our time frame with time to spare! Which was not easy to do and really helped reduce stress for everyone. Monica met me before the wedding to do a hair trial and was great in helping create the image I wanted with just a few pictures and my comments. The end result was truly SPECTACULAR! I've had my hair done before and this was the best I've ever experienced! My airbrushed makeup was perfect and looked great in the pictures! Monica did a great job listening to what people wanted and not pushing a predetermined idea onto them. Everyone was thrilled with the results of their hair and makeup. It was tasteful, elegant, and beautiful!! I highly recommend Monica Mosapor for wedding hair and makeup. She's amazing! -Monica Gutierrez,, February 2015
Monica was wonderful to work with and she exceeded my expectations for service and talent. She was referred to us by our home's wedding planner. She responded to email correspondence quickly. She showed up on time for our run-through and again on the morning of the wedding. I had an idea of the look I was going for and provided Monica photos. I let her take full artistic inspiration and create something of her own, a hairstyle that went above and beyond what I ever envisioned! She created a true (and lasting) work of art with my hair, in addition the makeup (airbrush, her expert recommendation) lasted all night long, through tears, humidity, heavy fog and even a jump into the pool at the end of the night. :) I would highly recommend Monica! The only problem I can think of: she doesn't live near me for my hair/makeup needs all of the time. ;) -Chef Kirsten Helle, MesadeVida.com. Seattle, WA, January 2015
Monica was very attentive and was very patient while doing my hair and makeup,and also my bridesmaids hair and makeup. She even came the day before to do a trial on my hair and makeup and helped me get ready for my rehearsal dinner. Monica also accommodated a last minute change as my bridesmaid wanted her hair done instead of just a blow dry. She even styled my fiancé's hair last minute. I recommend Monica for hair and makeup services for any wedding or special event, she is great. The hair and makeup held up against the Costa Rica humidity and all the pictures turned out great! - Andrea Allen, January 2015
Monica, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing job you did with my hair and makeup on my wedding day. My bridesmaids also looked gorgeous thanks to you. It was a lot of fun having you and your assistant making us pretty, I sincerely appreciate your patience with the particular requests, since some of us were very picky.
A million Thanks -Melissa Ayala, El avion wedding, November 2014

Monica is nothing but the best. I didn't get around to figuring out what I wanted to do for hair and make-up until 6 weeks before the wedding. I feel lucky Monica was still free and in town during my weekday August wedding. We worked together in advance by sharing images of what I was looking for (along with my mom, sisters-in-law and niece) and she made herself available for a trial the week of the wedding. My hair and make-up turned out exactly as I had hoped for the trial and then for the day of! Not only is Monica very professional but she is extremely personable and fun to have around when you're getting ready! She had a great deal of high-end products (which I understand is not so easy to get in Costa Rica) and I loved all of the products she used on me - they lasted the entire day and night. I felt like the best version of myself that day and I attribute a lot of that to Monica! Could not have been happier with my decision! - Beth Blumenfeld, NYC, August 2014
" Absolutely amazing!! Not only did Monica make me look and feel like the most beautiful person alive, her calm energy made me feel relaxed, open and ready to enjoy my special day. To top it off, while every one was sweating their faces off on the dance floor, I looked well kept and put together like a porcelain doll the entire night! Your best decision yet, picking your soon to be husband! Second, choosing Costa Rica as your wedding destination, and third will be picking Monica to make you shine!!" -Jamie Rudsten, August 2014
As a bride who self-planned her entire wedding from the U.S., I was very lucky to find Monica. I am very particular about my hair and makeup and had a specific look planned for my wedding day, which she accomplished with NO previous trial run on the first try- which is AMAZING and shows she is very skilled and knows what she is doing. She used a combination of the best products from high end beauty lines to create a look that could have been featured in a magazine and withstood 100% humidity, rain, and tears.If you are a bride searching for someone to give you the perfect look on your day, look no further- I have never looked more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Thank you Monica! - Erin Goodrich, May 2014
I am writing to you to thank you enormously for the amazing work that you have done for my wedding in Manuel Antonio. It was exceptionally easy to deal with you, you completely respected my tastes and requests, and provided amazing services, always remaining calm and collected, even though you were under a great deal of time pressure...You were just fabulous and really contributed in making the preparation for my wedding stress-free, easy and enjoyable. I knew I could count on you and you truly delivered high quality product with your assistant Kiki!!! At least 10 people from the wedding told me just how beautiful my hair were throughout the night!!! I really appreciated your services and would recommend you without hesitation to anyone getting married in Costa Rica.
Thank you a million for all your help!!

"I just wanted to thank you for just being so awesome. I felt totally comfortable with you from the second we met and I instantly knew that I could trust you with my hair and makeup for my wedding. I kept telling Max (my husband) how great you were and I wish he could have met you!
Everyone loved my hair and makeup and my bridesmaids were very happy with their hair as well. Thanks again for everything Monica." - Natalie :), March 2013
"We had just met Monica the morning of the wedding and she was a delight. She was patient with all of us. She serviced all five of us over a 4-5 hour period. The makeup was applied beautifully and not overdone. It lasted all through the high humidity of Costa Rica. She was able to work with a variety of hues of colors of skin tones ( ranging from dark skin to light skin). Monica’s make-up services made us all look our Best!!! I would recommend Monica to any wedding party coming to any region of Costa Rica." ~ Della Guidry, July 2012
"I wanted to thank you for taking such great care of me on my wedding day. Not only did you do my hair and makeup but you also did everything from iron my veil to help but on my shoes. You were the perfect maid of honor without even knowing me. I appreciate your warmth and generosity on the most important day of my life. You will always be remembered... " --Kimberly Harper Dockins, June 2012
"Hey Monica, I just wanted to say thank you again for the amazing work that you did on me, my sister and my grandmother yesterday. My grandmother was so proud of her hair, so sweet to see her like that :). My fiancé was so struck when I entered that tears just streamed down his face (which is so unlike him, he is normally so reserved). I let the universe handle it and it brought me you. I couldn't be more grateful for your hand in creating that special moment. I will be sure to send you pictures and will share your work in my blog and with local friends.Thank you again, Pura Vida, Jessica" - May 2012
