Types of Hairlines
Reconstruction of a natural hairline and crown is the most requested service from patrons seeking relief from hair loss. Four sessions are normally completed to ensure the scalp has a healthy gradient, and a textured look that rivals the best artisans. A natural hairline is achieved by establishing a staggered hairline, which creates an implied line across the forehead. Once the perfect hair line is achieved based on symmetry, facial anatomy, and texture the crown of the scalp can be filled in to match native follicles. Natural hairlines are popular because the average person cannot tell you had anything done, and it is the closest match to your old hairline be constructed to mirror the type of hairline you used to have prior to your hairloss journey.
Soft hairlines are for men and women who request a natural blending effect which is staggered with an implied line and no impressions at the temple areas. Natural hairlines are often done in very light passes to ensure the skin maintains a soft look by the end of the fourth session. Peppering is done at the fourth session to bring some pops of naturalism to the scalp, but the overall purpose of this look is to recreate the shaved follicle look to the front of the scalp. Soft hairlines are a client preference, and the outline placement will be determined based on facial symmetry, bone structure, and a rested or smiling state.
Hard hairlines are for men and women who want a sharp barbered edge up with pointed edges at the temple areas. Normally hard hairlines can still be softened by staggering a few impressions outside of the hairline, yet still maintain a true line. Hard lines are requested by people who are used to going to the barber on the regular and wish to maintain a crisp outline at the front of the scalp. Hard lines can also be altered into soft lines in the future if there is room left at the temple to bring the hairline down. Hard lines are a client preference, and the outline placement will be determined based on facial symmetry, bone structure, and a rested and smiling state.
Hybrid hairlines are for men and women who want a slightly receded hairline which is very close to their natural hairline. Often the temple areas are rounded with minimal impressions. Hybrid hairlines are often requested when the client does not want to change their temple area but does want to bring their hairline down one to two inches. These kinds of hairlines are the most natural as they blend in effortlessly with the native follicles, but the temple area remains consistently with the current state of their hairloss. Normally this is reserved for those who want to do minimal work and wish to create a soft polished hairline.placement will be determined based on facial symmetry, bone structure, and a rested or smiling state
Density treatments are often used to rectify thinning for patrons with long hair. Normally technicians will implement three to five passes per session to stain the skin. The purpose of density for long hair treatments is normally to fill in the hairline, and temple areas. Long hair is heavy and often puts strain on the hairline which eventually breaks or becomes very weak and thin. On average density treatments are done along the hair line, or part line to bring color and thickness back to the area. Each session will reveal a darker hue to the scalp and ensure the hairline is properly placed back in its rightful position.
Density treatments can be used for curly hair patterns. Often curls can leave bald spots that are very noticeable based on the direction of hair growth. The curl type can determine the density amount used based on the color, thickness, and wave pattern. Often a clean fade is used on the sides to establish a barber line up, and blended temple points
The average cost of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is $2000-$4000. Prices can be less or more depending on the level of hair loss.
After your Scalp Micropigmentation treatment you must avoid touching, showering, or shaving the treated area for a minimum of 4 days. Avoid carrying out any activities that may cause excessive sweating. Do not use a moisturizer, or shampoo, direct sunlight, swimming, sauna, or a steam room for 4 days. On your 5th day you should wash your head gently with cold water and baby shampoo.
During your free Scalp Consult we will go over your current hairloss and what would look the most natural for your face. We will choose the hairline and discuss the color before getting started to make sure the results are realistic.
Scalp Micropigmentation on average is not painful, however depending on your pain threshold their are certain areas of the temple which can sting due to the skin being thinner in that area. On a scale from 1-10 the average client rates the pain between 2 to 4.
Normally four sessions are necessary to give a true gradient on the scalp. If additional sessions are required a touchup may be necessary at the standard rate.
All tattoos fade over time due to your lifestyle, but most Scalp Micropigmentation lasts about 3-5 years before it begins to lighten. We however, do recommend yearly evaluations to ensure your scalp is in tact as you enter into each new year. There are many reasons a scalp can fade, so staying in contact with your technician can avoid those issues from happening. The most common reason premature fading occurs relates to shampoos or conditioners with acid ingredients, lack of sunscreen, and external environments. An SPF 50 and a moisturizer is advised to keep your scalp looking impeccable.
There is no downtime to begin your Scalp Micropigmentation journey. Normally four sessions are booked two weeks apart in order to give your skin time to heal. You can actually come in on your lunch, or after work since we are open late to complete your free consultation.
Apply moisturizer three times daily to prevent dryness and flaky skin. Unless you had a density procedure, avoid growing your hair too long. If you do not need to shave your head, we advise using an electric shaver only. We recommend a Remington HC4250, Pitbull Silver IPX5, Walh Professional Blading Clipper, or similar shaver. Please avoid wet shaving for 10 days post procedure.
