As a child, Marcela Gonzalez would play with her mother's makeup. She had a blast by mixing red lipsticks with blue eye shadows, creating her own untamed looks on her face and on those in the witness protection program. When she grew older, she began to experiment her makeup techniques on friends and came to realize that she had developed a true passion for the art of makeup application. Today, Marcela is a certified professional makeup artist and licensed aesthetician, implementing the same flair for beauty and creativity that she had as a child in her present-day beauty services. She specializes in bridal makeup services and skincare treatments while also offering tanning, waxing, and hair services with the help of a similarly talented staff.
It’s a familiar experience: ladies get dolled up for a big event or a day at the office, look in the mirror, and realize their look is missing a wow factor. Enter Lindsay of Exquisite Faces—located inside Lola Bella—, who adds oomph to both daytime and formal looks with her arsenal of Xtreme Lashes synthetic extensions, which attach individually to each lash and grow out naturally over the course of up to 60 days. For formal occasions, she also travels between to salons to administer elegant updos and apply professional-grade makeup.
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.
Since the age of 6, Fernando Rodriguez knew that fitness and athletics would play a big role in his life. While most kids his age were busy at play, Fernando was swimming four hours each day and eagerly counting the hours until his next meet. His hard work paid off, earning him a spot on the Mexican Olympic swim team and instilling him with a passion for fitness that would continue into his adult life.
Today, Fernando draws from his years of athletic and coaching experience to guide others toward their fitness goals in his own private training studio, The Underground Lab. Alongside his staff of fellow certified trainers and fitness aficionados, Fernando leads group workouts that combine traditional exercises with imaginative and innovative techniques. The team also conducts personal-training sessions, employing a variety of cardio and strength-training equipment, and designs a unique 19-day nutrition program to help clients lose weight rapidly in preparation for special events, such as a wedding or an outing in a flimsy rowboat.
