Hi, my name is Jillian Rae and I LOVE doing Wedding Hair!!
My experience began ten years ago in San Diego, where I was born and raised. I started my career doing hair for Bridal Fashion Shows and immediately fell in love with everything about the wedding industry. It was all so beautiful... the flowers, the dresses, the hair and makeup! I spent much of that time as well in a few top San Diego Salons mastering the art of Color, Cutting, & Styling. What I loved more than anything though was working with Brides, so in 2009, "Wedding Hair by Jillian Rae" was started. Since then I have won Brides Choice by Wedding Wire for several years. I have been featured on Every Last Detail , 100 Layer Cake 1 , 100 Layer Cake 2 , Carats & Cake , Rustic Wedding Chic, and Style me Pretty .
As your wedding stylist my top priority is to really listen to what my bride describes she wants; looking at pictures with her, evaluating the hair style with her face shape and dress, and helping her choose the right hair accessories to pull the whole look together. I want my brides to feel totally taken care of and relaxed the day of their wedding, confident and calm. I am not only a Stylist on your wedding day, but a friend, and I will go above and beyond to make sure you are completely satisfied. On your wedding day you should feel like yourself, just ten times more glamorous.

ERIN BROWN Portfolio:
I am so excited to introduce my first team member, Erin Brown. I am blessed that my business has grown so much, but I can not meet the demand solo. She is so talented and I'm thrilled I found such a gem! Here is a little about this lovely lady...
"My name is Erin Brown and I also LOVE to do wedding hair. My journey began when I was 5 years old and was gifted a book on how to style hair. I immediately fell in love. Fast forward to high school where I styled hair for prom, followed by fashioning for college formals to my present day passion of styling weddings. After graduating from UCONN in 2006, I attended Cosmetology School at Jean Madeline Aveda School in Philadelphia. Recognizing the importance of growing my craft, I continued my education through attending weekly salon courses, local workshops as well as attending Bumble & Bumble University in NYC. In Philadelphia, I owned my own wedding styling business during my 6 year tenure behind the chair cutting, coloring and styling hair. In October of 2016 I decided to uproot and live my life long dream of putting down roots in San Diego, CA. I am honored and excited to be a part of the “Wedding Hair by Jillian Rae” team!
I echo Jillian’s priority of connecting with my brides, completely understanding the “vibe” and working with you to make you feel your absolute best on one of the most important days of your life. I aim to provide lightness and make everyone feel comfortable, calm and beautiful. Perfectly undone and without trying too hard, I'd love to give you the wedding hair of your dreams!"
