My name is Jillian Toppen, bridal beauty specialist and Owner of Gloss Makeup and Hair.
I began doing hair and makeup in 2006 and quickly found my passion. I attended cosmetology school in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated with honors in 2008. After several years of full service luxury salon work in Minnesota and North Carolina, I switched to freelance makeup and hair styling and Gloss was born.
My family moved to SW Missouri in the summer of 2017 and I relaunched Gloss that August. I quickly discovered how in demand my services were as an experienced on location hair stylist and makeup artist, and that as a solo artist there was more interested brides than I had hands for! Since then I have gathered a fabulous and talented group of artists and stylists so that more brides than ever can experience the Gloss difference whether through my hands or that of the team. I have been so blessed by the overwhelming response and support by the local wedding community here in Missouri and I can’t wait to see where God takes Gloss in the coming seasons!
Our mission is to enhance the natural beauty in every client to help them look and feel like the very best version of themselves. Our brides say they feel relaxed, confident, and totally beautiful on their wedding days. Performing on location beauty services makes this a reality. We bring everything to the bridal party and turn those beginning moments of the day into an unforgettable memory. My team and I would love to share this experience with you!
I have 10+ years of experience as a licensed and insured Cosmetologist and have over 200 hours of continued education and certifications in the field of beauty.
