Hello, my name is Jillian.
I was born and raised in the mountains of North Lake Tahoe. I always dreamed of becoming a hairstylist with the ocean by my side! I grew up playing with my family's hair, my friend’s hair and always my own. I knew my purpose, my calling, was in the beauty industry from a moment in my 7th grade class: We were taking a course about careers and I felt my passion for the beauty industry burning deep within me. Excited to follow my dreams, I graduated high school a semester early and immediately enrolled in beauty college in Reno, Nevada. With immense pride and gratitude, I attained my Cosmetology license in 2013. From there I have worked in salons in North Lake Tahoe, Flagstaff, Arizona and Capitola.
My dream of living by the ocean and doing hair has come true and I couldn’t be more grateful. I love cutting and styling hair as well as special occasion hair styling. At L’Atelier I enjoy a PHENOMENAL continuing education program and expanding my knowledge of hairstyling and the culture of a high-end, very professional salon environment.
When I am not at L'Atelier Salon, I can be found dancing, traveling, spending time with family, sun bathing on the beach or out in nature enjoying the breathtaking beauty in Santa Cruz County. I believe every day is a gift and life should be lived with patience, joy, passion, and kindness.
I very much look forward to meeting you!

"I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate the personal care I’ve received from Jillian; she takes the time to listen to my hair goals and offers wonderful advice. I’ve always been happy with my styles from her so I didn’t hesitate recommending her. My son has had some awful cuts in the past at other salons and reluctantly agreed to see Jillian. She really heard what he wanted and gave him a great cut. You have a fabulous stylist and genuinely kind person at your salon and we appreciate it. Thanks so much."

"I have nothing, but extreme compliments for you, the salon and Jillian. I have NEVER seen such “care and feeding” by a salon for the overall story of our hair, our heads and how we are connected to this part of our being. Thank you for designing the experience to take such an in-depth look. Jillian- even though we are friends- was completely professional and welcoming, being able to blend her worlds seamlessly. I love how open she and you/salon are to feedback. While I have nothing about the experience I would change, I feel completely comfortable knowing if I did I could without you all taking it personally and it causing some un-pleasantries (which I have had before in my experiences with stylists). I look forward to working with Jillian on my goals for my "hair-do”!
"Just THANK YOU! So happy with my service yesterday with Jillian... especially my decadent "scalp facial." Wow. So awesome! I love the environment there. Love the smiles on all of the staff's faces and the warmth and positivity that you all exude. I appreciate your generosity, your commitment to Downtown Santa Cruz, and your overall business approach. Go Megan! Go L'Atelier! :)"
"Jillian was wonderful! I was really tired and stressed, and she was so thoughtful and gave me the best scalp treatment when doing my color. It helped relieve my headache and felt wonderful. I have already reserved her service for my next glaze. Please thank her again for me."
"I had a great experience yesterday with Jillian who did a great job on my new balayage. She listened to me ("I want it so natural no one would guess I got it colored, but I don't want it to look the same as how it looks now!") A tough order, but Jillian gave me exactly what I asked for. She helped me hone in on the look I was trying to achieve with this service and gave me multiple options. I told her I probably would not be doing any more color for a while and she assured me that this service would grow out seamlessly and is a good option for a busy working mom that wants to spruce up her 'do. She talked me through products she was using, but not too much. The whole process was relaxing and enjoyable. I definitely will recommend Jillian to anyone and everyone that is looking for a new stylist!
"I really enjoy my time at your salon and loved Jillian's hair cut and her service!"
"My cut with Jillian was so lovely! She is really wonderful and attentive, and I felt welcomed, comfortable, and special. Jillian listened to exactly what I was looking for and even recommended the perfect new product that I'm loving; I loved that because it's easy to feel like a stylist is pushing a product on you without 100% listening to what you truly want. Jillian made it all about me and my hair and my style and gave me a few options to choose from. Yay, so happy with my cut! Thank you!"
"Jillian is great. She is very warm, concentrated in her job, and I really liked the color service. She was very present to having a clean space and gave me a great wash and style. I felt that she was proud of herself for working there (of course!), and VERY happy to be part of your team. I will definitely recommend her to all of my friends."
"I love my cut! It was exactly what I wanted and this is the happiest I have been with a haircut in years!"
"Jillian did a really nice haircut, and I am very happy with it. She also has an excellent demeanor. The staff at L’Atelier were highly professional and very friendly. The salon is really clean, well lit, and just pleasant to be at. I will be coming there regularly."
