Hernan Prada Hair
Scarsdale, Bedford Hills
Roots The Scarsdale location opened in 2012; the Bedford Hills location, in 2016. Both five- to six-chair eco-friendly salons feature LED lighting and repurposed wood furniture and accents, which create a relaxed, boutique feel.
Highlights Hernan Prada Hair stylists use a special haircut technique. “This technique follows the natural fall of the hair, making at-home styling effortless and reducing the number of times a year you need to get it cut,” says Hernan Prada, salon director.
Cutting Edge Prada uses 100-percent ceramic tools to create low-maintenance waves. He has also mastered shoulder-sweeping lobs. In addition, his unique “balayombre” technique involves shades of lightener applied in a bi-tone style with balayage placed in between sections. This results in more natural-looking color.
Color Code The salon’s most popular technique, diffused color, merges a one-color process and the application of balayage highlights. “We also use an eco-friendly ammonia-free coloring technique called Roller Mechés,” says Prada. “It adds an extra pop of color, plus depth and movement.”
Star Stylist/Colorist “All of our stylists rotate between the salons so that all of our clients get to know and trust each one,” says Prada. “They are trained the same way, so clients are comfortable booking an appointment with anyone available.”
Gloss A few times a year, Hernan Prada donates money to the nonprofit Caron Treatment Center to help adolescents battling addiction who can’t afford the services on their own. Complimentary makeup touch-ups are also given to all clients after hair services.
Heads Up “Things are going so well right now that we plan on opening up additional salons in the future,” says Prada.
