Learning the fundamentals to this industry is key however nothing can replace hands-on training. Jerod also believes that having access to your trainers before, during, and after training is paramount in giving the new artist the confidence to know that they are not alone.
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Some will refer to it as a Hair Tattoo or Medical Hairline Tattooing or Hair Simulation or Follicle Replication. In the end, it's simply the art of creating the illusion of real hair follicles. Most practitioners have been trained to use one type of needle when performing scalp micropigmentation. Not our artists! We are trained to use different types of needles (single micro and three-point) in order to achieve optimal results. Aside from the hairline, our artists also pay very close attention to key factors such as blending, matching, feathering, density-building, texturing, scar concealment, etc., in order to produce undetectable natural results. It is simply the most realistic, non-invasive, cost-efficient hair loss treatment out there. If done correctly it is seamless, undetectable and, in many cases, unbelievable!
