Your style options
One of the great advantages of SMP® is that your final appearance is completely flexible. SMP® is the smart style for balding men and is as permanent as you want it to be, enabling you to have the clean, modern style you always wanted.
Many different styles are possible with the SMP® technique. During your consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss your preferred style with our team, to ensure we have a thorough understanding of the look you would like to achieve. Of primary importance are the appearance of your recreated hairline and side profiles, the colour and shade of your hair ‘follicles’ and how densely your new ‘follicles’ are placed.
Your frontal hairline and side profiles
The hairline is usually the first thing you see when you look at a persons hair, therefore it is unsurprising that the first question we are often asked is “What will my frontal hairline and side profiles look like?”
SMP® provides total flexibility, enabling your practitioner to simulate whatever hairline you desire. Choose from soft or defined, slightly receded or further forward, straight or widows peak. Your hairline can be as individual as you are, and will ultimately depend on your style preference, age, skin type and tolerance of change.
A softer hairline suited Ray (pictured above) perfectly. His fair hair and skin tone enabled the areas treated by SMP® to blend perfectly with his existing hair, to create a soft, natural look.
The client above opted for a medium definition hairline.
Dani wasn’t suffering from a major hair loss problem, but after his hairline receded slightly, he decided he wanted a more youthful look. HIS Hair Clinic brought his hairline forward again, and created a defined look to match his existing hair colour and skin tone.
Your hair colour and shade
All the pigments we use for our Scalp MicroPigmentation procedures are developed specifically to our own specification. Depending on your requirements, your practitioner will create a different pigment colour to exactly match your remaining hair.
The above photograph shows a great example of how SMP pigments blend with lighter hair. All blonde, light brown, white and grey shades can be matched to perfection.
The client above required a darker shade to match the transplanted hair from his strip surgery.
The client above needed an even darker shade. The result is a perfect blend from his real hair to his SMP® ‘follicles’
Whatever colour you require, from medium and dark brown, to jet black and even red hair. We choose your pigments with a great deal of care to ensure a seamless finish from the treated area to your real hair.
Your hair follicle density
Although the ability to finely tune your hair density without the need for transplant donor hair may sound too good to be true, the SMP® technique really does enable the client to leave thinning hair behind, and recreate the style you always wanted.
The client above had a reasonable amount of hair, therefore it was particularly important that the density of his SMP® treatment perfectly matched his existing hair.
After several years suffering from increasingly thinning hair, Dan (above) was almost completely bald when he came to HIS Hair Clinic, so he could have created virtually any style he wanted. Dan felt however, that a dense look would have been too significant a change, and therefore opted for a lightweight, low density style.
How should you choose your new style?
By far the most important consideration when establishing what style to choose is the position, colour and density of any ‘real’ hair you still have. If a natural appearance is your primary concern, we will usually recommend that we match your ‘real’ hair as closely as possible, including the position of your original hairline and side profiles. If you are completely bald, there are many more options available as the treatment is not required to match with any existing hair.
It is important to remember that if your preferences change at a later date, perhaps as you get older and would prefer a slightly receded look, your style can be adapted accordingly. Thanks to our straightforward laser removal process, hairlines can be reshaped, shades can be lightened and densities can be reduced. For more information see our Treatment Revision page.
