About Jillian

Jillian RigtrupJillian has been doing hair since 1997, but hair was always been a passion for her. She started her career in the White Mountains of Arizona, and loved getting to know all the ways that hair was done that now are considered old and no one does anymore. She still enjoys doing some of those styles and the time spent with those older clients. After a few years, her family and her moved back to the Valley of the Sun, and she was able to work with some of the best stylists in the industry. Working for Regis Corporation on and off for 17 years, she was able to take advantage of their continuing education opportunities for their stylists, and be certified in Redkin, Wella, and Matrix color, SoCap Extensions, and take part in many customer service, color and cutting technique classes to further her knowledge in the industry. In the Fall of 2018, Jillian joined a private salon that switched their color and product line to L’anza. She fell in love with their all natural, certified products and is still using them today.

In the Spring of 2018, Jillian took the next step in her education and went back to school and got the hours necessary to receive her Instructor’s license. She taught for 1 year as a substitute at Empire Beauty School, and then went on to teach both 1st and 2nd year students at East Valley Institute of Technology for 3 years.

When Jillian is not in the salon, she is a mom to 7 wonderful children. She fills her time with helping them and finds small snippets of time for herself where she can. When people tell her that she must be a saint; she says, “I am only human just like everyone else.”

Persnickity Salon has been a dream of hers since the beginning of her career, and her hope is that one day it will be an apprenticeship salon. Jillian wants to continue teaching stylists, and with bringing in apprentices one at a time, she will be able to teach with the attention that is needed in this industry, so that when the apprentice is able to get their license, they are able to go out on their own.
