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.
