Not every aesthetician can say they studied with a master. Bonnie R. Hill enjoyed that opportunity in 1997 when Inga Tritt, master stylist and founder of Original Sprout, handpicked her to study cosmetology under her wing. Inga admired Bonnie’s meticulous attention to detail, a skill that’s essential for professionals who encounter the full spectrum of skin types. Bonnie continues the apprenticeship tradition that brought her such success—her protégé Ashley Balke works in the salon as well, expertly honing the same skills in customized, natural skincare.
Bonnie knows that everyone’s skin looks and behaves differently. During each one-on-one consultation in her portion of Lola Bella Salon, Bonnie applies the same discerning eye first noticed by Inga Tritt. She assesses the skin’s sensitivity before customizing a suite of products that accomplish the client’s desired outcome. She frequently calls upon to natural ingredients, such as antioxidant-rich chocolate and pumpkin, to address skin conditions related to age or sun damage. When she rinses away the products, she reveals skin that looks young and refreshed, like an infant drinking cola.
