Hello, Lovely Brides! My name is Jillian Rae and I am a Wedding Hair Stylist. My experience began ten years ago in San Diego where I started my career doing hair for Bridal Fashion Shows, which grew my love for the wedding industry. I spent many years behind a chair in several different top San Diego Salons mastering the art of Color, Cutting, & Styling. What I loved more than anything was doing Weddings, so in 2009, "Wedding Hair by Jillian Rae" was born. Since then I have won Brides Choice by Wedding Wire for several years now. I have been featured on Every Last Detail, 100 Layer Cake, and Style me Pretty.

My top priority as a wedding stylist 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 picking out 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.

If you are bride reading this, book Jillian now! Jillian is simply amazing! I cannot say enough positive things about her! I was extremely particular about my hair look and finding a hair vendor that had an incredible portfolio of work that I knew could achieve my dream look. Upon first contacting Jillian, she was extremely responsive, friendly and helpful! I knew immediately she was the one and I wanted to work with her.

Jillian is not only professional but so kind, helpful and friendly! We did my hair trial the day before my wedding, which was our rehearsal day. It was so fun to see Jillian and work to achieve my look. The style held up the entire day and night and I was so thrilled, I could not wait to see her again for the wedding day look. My wedding day hair was an absolute dream, it was so perfect and gorgeous and it was all because of Jillian's talent!

Jillian, thank you for all you did for me and my mom and sister! We loved our looks and owe it all to you. You are an incredible vendor and friend and I am so thankful for you making us look so gorgeous! A+!!!!

After looking into many options for hair stylist for my wedding, Jillian was the only one I truly trusted. She was excellent in her communication and flexibility. She gave me the effortless look I was going for and helpful my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law feel put together and beautiful. None of us wanted the stereotypical wedding hair. We preferred something elegant but unfussy and Jillian was spot on with her execution. My hair still looked great even after a night of dancing! Couldn't recommend her more!

Jillian is an absolute wonder of a human being. Not only is she kind and genuine, but she is also a true artist with hair; we did a quick trial, at which I showed her a few pictures and explained what I was thinking and within a few minutes, she had EXACTLY what I was picturing in my head! Then on the wedding day, she somehow made my hair look even more amazing and picture-perfect! She is quick, efficient, and beyond talented. Jillian is also the most loving, kind, easy-going, and professional woman I've ever worked with. GO WITH JILLIAN! Your search is over...

Thank you Jillian; you made me feel indescribably beautiful on my special day! You're the absolute greatest!

I can't rave enough about my experience with Jillian Rae. From the start she was extremely responsive when I was in the research/planning stages to book a hair stylist for my wedding day. On the day of my hair trial and then again on my wedding day she did exactly the hair style I was hoping for. I'm usually pretty picky when it comes to other people styling my hair, and often touch it up a bit myself after, but with Jillian I didn't need to "adjust" a thing. She made me feel my very best! All my bridesmaids could not have been happier with their hair do's as well. She has the sweetest (and calm) demeanor too which is exactly the type of person you want hanging with you on your wedding day!!

Using Jillian Rae to do my hair on my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. I didn't even have a trial run with her because my wedding was not in my hometown, but I still felt at ease after reading her rave reviews and seeing the gorgeous pictures of her work. Not only did she completely transform my hair and styled it into the exact loose updo that I had pictured, but she was incredibly accommodating and took on several extra girls without prior notice. If you're looking for someone who literally creates works of art with your hair, is flexible, responsive, and extremely sweet, then you HAVE to book Jillian.

Jillian was simply amazing, her quick response to emails and her professionalism and her down to earth personality made me feel comfortable the entire time. I cannot say enough about Jillian Rae and her service!, she was able to complete 9 individuals done prior the schedule time of my wedding day. When reading reviews online about her service, I did not imagine what hairstyle I would be doing on the day of my wedding. After several emails back and forth, my fiancé convince me to arrange a hair trial appointment, downside was I was living in Chicago and she was San Diego where my wedding would be held in. I was absolutely shocked to have someone go out of their way to take the time on doing a trial run. I was on a very tight schedule, as my wedding happened on Saturday May 23, 2015 and we flew in on the 20th May from Chicago, I had my trial run for my hair on the 21st. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early than expected to get started on my junior bridesmaids and some of my bridal party, including myself. My hair turned out more amazing than it did during the trial run. She has a fabulous caring, lovable personality and my ladies loved her. I am so thankful to have chosen her, and I would definitely recommend Jillian Rae for any future bride or special events as you will not be disappointed.

I cannot thank you enough.

I couldn't have imagined my wedding day without this lovely lady! I am a wedding photographer and have seen my fair share of hair vendors and even heard of horror stories. From our first communication to the wedding day, Jillian was always super prompt in all communication and helpful to answer any questions that I had. She made me feel very comfortable during the trial run and I knew she would make me look beautiful on my wedding day.

On the wedding day, Jillian was on time and stayed on schedule which is a task when you have to do 4 different people's hair in less than 3 hours. She worked quickly and efficiently and created beautiful hair styles for myself and my wedding party.

I would recommend Jillian to anyone looking for a quality hair person with a super sweet personality.

Jillian is the best, and if she is available for your wedding, you should hire her immediately! She did my hair for my wedding, and she was delightful. Before the wedding, she was so easy to work with, and quick to reply to correspondence. And on the wedding weekend, she was so lovely-- just the person you want to hang out with during such a stressful time! She's very easygoing, but a total professional. She did my hair and my mom's and bridesmaids' hair, and we all looked amazing!

Jillian made my wedding day hair dreams come true! My hair is naturally frizzy, fine, thin and curly. For my wedding, I wanted my hair to look thick, gorgeous and timeless. I didn’t know if it was possible to transform my crazy hair, but Jillian made it happen!
I wanted to wear my hair down, but I also wanted to show off the detailing on the back of my dress. Jillian helped me figure out a half-up/half-down side swept style that made me feel beautiful and highlighted my dress. I also bought extensions and she worked with them for both the run-through and the day of the wedding. I was amazed at how she blended the extensions so expertly and literally transformed my hair. We had an outdoor wedding, including windy photos, tons of dancing and lots of hugging guests- and my hair stayed in tact and looking great for all of it! Jillian was delightful to interact with. She was calm, peaceful, kind and efficient. She gave me thoughtful, honest suggestions and made the whole process feel easy. I highly recommend hiring Jillian for your wedding!
