A proud mom and active beauty coach, Jill excels in bringing creative solutions from the salon to the screen. Oregon-grown and raised, Jill spent her early years exploring the coast, guiding river trips and carving the slopes just north of the California border. A rugged upbringing and love for the outdoors instilled in her a stubbornness drive to succeed. Graduating a year early from high school, she decided to pursue a career in the hair industry. She went on to Marinello in Las Vegas where she met longtime friend, Riawna Capri. The two started a whirlwind journey that would eventually reunite them years later. Jill graduated Marinello in 2002 and worked at a salon in Bend, Oregon before moving to Medford to help the opening of Cielo Salon. It was during this time that she got hitched and started a family.
In 2011, she moved to Los Angeles and was welcomed into the Nine Zero One family. She operated the Braid Bar on Santa Monica Blvd and steadily grew her clientele. Over the next few years, she worked her way up as a stylist and pursued opportunities to meet new clients and assist some shining stars—Julianne Hough, Nina Dobrev, Jessica Simpson, Jewel, Molly Bernard among others.
“Embrace the chaos, seek creativity and stay positive.” Jill understands the whirlwind of the industry but does her best to build solid relationships with each and every client. Relationships matter and so does helping people feel good about themselves. Among her presence in the salon, Jill also works Dancing with the Stars, red carpet events, oversees direction of the Beauty Coach video series, tours with Beauty Coach and is an educator with 901 Academy. “The payoff is seeing the smiles on my client’s faces. I want them to be confident, be comfortable and to know I’m always there for them.”
