Hair and Confidence
The confidence that we feel about our appearance is often, whether we’d like to admit it or not, driven by culturally promoted beauty standards. Depending on where you live, who your community praises as attractive, and how many of those attributes you possess, you may or may not feel confident in your appearance. Numerous studies have shown that hair is one of the key components of self-confidence. Women who are having a “bad hair day” feel far less confident, and hair is one of the first aspects people notice when they meet someone for the first time.
So how do beauty standards form? We’re scalp micropigmentation specialists, not cultural anthropologists, and while our understanding of how beauty standards formed is limited, we’ve done a bit of research. What cultures praise as beautiful is mired in evolutionary development, history, and aesthetics. And while there may be plenty of cultural cache around having a Tarzan-like mane, your hair, or lack thereof, is not an accurate representation of your health, worth, or evolutionary fitness.
The truth is, what you look like is way less important than how you feel about yourself. At Hairline Ink, we understand the crisis of confidence that people experiencing hair thinning and hair loss often feel. Rest assured, we love a shiny bald head as much as we love a voluminous mane. If you are losing volume, developing a receding hairline, or are experiencing scalp-related issues that cause hair loss, you are just fine as you are. You deserve to feel confident! Self-acceptance is a great thing, and you have options for reclaiming it.
Scalp micropigmentation is a process that can permanently reverse the appearance of hair loss. No matter if you have lost all of your hair, or you are looking to add some fullness or revitalize your hairline, we at Hairline Ink are ready to discuss the possibilities with you. Our practitioners have worked with people experiencing various insecurities. We’ve witnessed the profound ways that simple external changes can impact people’s confidence.
