Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
At Hernan Prada Hair, even a simple trim is a personalized opus. The stylists here all have trained in a specialized cutting technique that snips hair according to how it naturally falls rather than taking off a designated number of inches at a 90-degree angle. The result is a custom cut that flatters each guest's hair type and face. The team takes the same kind of meticulous approach to color treatments, which range from multidimensional bi-tone hues to hand painted balayage highlights, a more precise alternative to foils. The salon also stocks organic products from Surface.
The man behind these careful methods, Hernan Prada, has devoted most of his life to perfecting them. He began working as a stylist's apprentice in Argentina at age 16. At Llongueras—known for receiving such clients as the Spanish royal family and Salvador Dalí—Hernan accrued enough know-how to move to New York and open his own venue. Now, the Scarsdale Patch reports that he's styled models for Hermes and Valentino, among other companies. Despite his closeness to celebrity, he runs Hernan Prada Hair as an inviting setting for everyday guests and eco-friendly practices.
With its black walls, chrome décor, and streamlined furniture, Platinum Tanning’s ultramodern waiting room reflects a commitment to staying on the cutting edge of UV and sunless-tanning technology. This theme continues in the salon’s private rooms, which host standup and lie-down UV tanning beds—including the Montego Bay V56, the AutoBronzer, the S-Class, the P-90 Combo, and the advanced Alpha 6800—that infuse skin with a bright, sun-kissed glow or a deep bronze.
To keep skin looking the golden hue of King Midas’s morning toast, Platinum Tanning stocks its shelves with moisturizing and color-boosting products from top brands such as Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Devoted Creations. UV-free California Tan spray tanning imbues skin with one of three shades that can last up to seven days. To determine which tanning regimen is right for you, talk to the salon’s staff during a free consultation that accounts for your skin type and goals.
