Hernan Prada Hair stylists use a program haircut technique. This technique works with the natural fall of the hair, making at home styling easier and cutting down blow dry time. Since each haircut is personalized to the client’s hair, whether it be straight, curly, or in between, the cut will grow out beautifully and never lose it’s shape. Most clients who get our haircuts only need one every two to three months. The conventional technique (used elsewhere) uses more of a “90 degree angle” technique which cuts each section of hair in multiple pieces regardless of how the clients hair naturally falls. Since this same cut is given to all, it makes it difficult for the client to style it when the cut is not suitable or personalized for their hair.
A bi-tone is a technique used on clients who may be new to color or who just want to break the solidity of their current hair color. The ammonia free color is applied in three steps to create different shades and dimensions throughout the hair. It can be done on any shade of hair but is a favorite amongst brunettes. This technique will leave your hair looking shiny with rich, multi dimensional color.
Diffused Color ©
Clients who get a one color process and also want the natural highlighted look of balayage, would benefit from the diffused color technique. This technique would also be good for clients who may be new to balayage or are looking for a more subtle highlighted look. Diffused color involves applying a one color process then immediately applying balayage highlights/lowlights and letting both processes develop simultaneously. Our most popular technique, diffused color gives a beautiful blend of natural looking color.

Balayage is a hair coloring technique designed to create very natural-looking highlights which grow out without developing a noticeable and obvious root (low maintenance). This coloring technique emerged in Paris in the 1970s; the word “balayage” is French for “to sweep”, a reference to the way in which the color is applied. Unlike foiled highlights, which look very uniform and a bit unnatural, hair which has been subjected to balayage simply looks like it has been out in the sun. The highlights can be subtle or more intense, depending on the desires of the client, and balayage isn't just for blondes: it can also be applied to brunette and red shades. The balayage technique works with the natural pigment of the hair using a lightening powder (ammonia-free), never bleach, so it will not damage the hair like foil highlighting does.
Our newest healthy hair technique! Balayombré is our take on the popular Ombré style where color becomes gradually lighter from root to end. Multiple shades of lightener is applied in a Bi-Tone style with Balayage placed in between sections offering a more natural looking color.
Roller Mechés ©
This European technique is best described as “un-foil highlighting”. All the intensity that foil highlighting offers, minus the damaging effects. Roller Mechés is the healthy, eco-friendly version that your hair has been waiting for! The selected hair is placed onto an extended plastic, reusable sheet where it is hand painted with either lightener or ammonia-free color. The plastic sheet then automatically rolls up to the root where the hair will process to a more intense level. The outcome is a brilliant pop of color or highlight! This technique can be done on its own or in addition to any color process at the same time!
