If you want guaranteed results that look natural and actually relieve the frustrating effects of hair loss, Scalp Micropigmentation is the choice for you.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a highly advanced method of cosmetic pigmentation. While similar to traditional tattooing, Scalp Micropigmentation is also unique in a variety of ways. SMP involves the use of highly specialized equipment and techniques to inject pigment into the scalp. Scalp Micropigmentation is an extremely intricate procedure with a guaranteed result. The quality of your treatment depends on two things: Using the most up-to-date equipment, and getting your treatment from the most skilled and experienced practitioners. At Hairline Ink, we use a special computer controlled system, the most cutting edge technology in the industry, to ensure you receive a consistent appearance across the head and completely flawless results. Each treatment is tailored to your exact skin color and type. As Hairline Ink was founded with the intention of being the leaders in the Scalp Micropigmentation industry, we only employ practitioners whose expertise is undeniable, with a record of proven results.
While there are many available options for treating hair loss, most are unreasonably expensive, unreliable, and add to your frustration instead of relieving it. Hair transplants often leave nasty scars and typically cost far more than the value you receive. Hair Clubs are also very expensive and can require literally a lifetime of returning and maintaining. Wigs are another option, but most men simply don’t feel comfortable with the potential embarrassment which can be caused by a displacement. Wigs also need continual maintenance, and the reality of it is this: wigs rarely do a convincing job of covering up hair loss.
What’s more is that this doesn’t just help people seeking that “freshly-shaved” look. At Hairline Ink, you can expect us to help:

Treatment is typically completed across 2-3 sessions. Below, we’ll take you through the process step-by-step:
When we implant our ink into the affected area, we carefully match your natural hair color with skillful precision. Additionally, we shade darker than your natural colour, which gives the illusion of a shadow and the appearance of three-dimensional, natural hair.
The treatment at Hairline Ink is administered softly, in a gentle approach, and results look unbelievably natural.
Each client’s needs are unique. During your consultation, we will talk to you about exactly what results you want to get, and ensure a custom procedure, designed to give you the desired effects that you’re looking for.
There are a variety of options/styles available. We have outlined some of the most popular below:
Many people want their current hairline lowered, replenishing where it has receded over time, and giving the appearance of fuller hair and a clean hairline. We follow the natural hairline by layering the impressions, thus giving the realistic appearance of hair with no hard line. We make sure to match the ink color perfectly to that of the client, resulting in an incredibly effective and strikingly natural result.
Men and women of all ages have found Scalp Micropigmentation as their solution to cover or fill in thinning hair. Thinning can result in a wide, undesirable scalp area showing through the hair. Typically, the person will have an even coverage across the scalp, but the density drops as the hair loss progresses. Scalp Micropigmentation replaces the lost density, resulting in the appearance of an even, full head of hair.
With this focused and specialized approach, we treat the front hairline and let it blur into density with a natural look. The initial treatment is gentle and soft, increasing density throughout the rest of the thinning hair. We also create a three-dimensional effect, giving the appearance of a natural shadow. This technique is a great choice for you if you have had a hair transplant but didn’t end up with the desired density.
The “Edge Up”, which is also known as the “Jamie Foxx”, is an extremely popular choice. With this particular procedure, it is very important to begin conservatively with the hairline. There is a lot of preparation required before starting to create the hairline and a side temple area first. We carefully match the color and density precisely during these procedures to create the illusion of a head full of hair with a sharp hairline, in addition to a robust and youthful edge-up. Hairline Ink creates the very best edge-up styles which are often sought after by celebrities.
Many women suffer from hair loss and thinning hair. Hairline Ink specializes in creating an underlying effect, which creates the appearance of a natural, full head of hair. This is the ideal treatment for women. Many women need color added to their scalp to cover natural separations made from long hair. If you can see scalp, we cover this up to allow for it to look healthy and full. Scalp Micropigmentation is perfect if you are a woman who is thinning on the top or across the crown section of your head. We have worked with and treated many female alopecia and surgery scar clients.
If you have had a hair transplant, you may have been left with scars as a result of this procedure. The technique we use at Hairline Ink is a highly advanced style of Scalp Micropigmentation which doesn’t just cover the scars, but also gives the appearance of a fuller head of hair by adding density to existing hair, or creating the look of a shaved head; depending on the client.
Scalp Micropigmentation is the perfect solution for the effective concealment of scars of all kinds: FUT strip scars, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) scars, scalp reduction scars, and Historic Plug or Cobblestone scars from old-fashioned hair restoration procedures.
Most hair transplants are not as effective as Scalp Micropigmentation due to the sheer lack of donor hair. People are often left with only two choices: They can continue having multiple hair restoration treatments that leave patients with more scars and cost even more money, or proceed with Scalp Micropigmentation, which provides guaranteed results and little-to-no ongoing maintenance – Seems like a pretty easy choice, right?
Some of our clients will come to us after having as many as fifteen hair transplants. After they went under FUE or strip scar surgery, they are left with severe scarring, plug holes on their heads, and a resulting sense of insecurity. We utilize Scalp Micropigmentation to cover up your scars, giving you a renewed sense of confidence. Our procedure gives you a guaranteed result, putting an end to frequent hair transplant surgeries, all while covering up the scars from previous surgeries.
(Clients experience redness immediately following treatment, from anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours, depending on their skin type.)
The Hairline Ink technique has a proven track record in camouflaging hair transplant scars for clients. For scar cover up there are two options:
Keep your hair long, in this case we will go under the hair to camouflage the scar.
The second option, is to shave your hair down in order to blend it into the follicles and completely camouflage the scars. This option is the recommended choice and takes between 2-3 sessions for the optimal results to be achieved.
Many hair replacement physicians will refer their clients to Hairline Ink to augment a hair transplant. Scalp Micropigmentation can work with hair transplant as a pre-planned combination procedure. By combining traditional hair restoration and Hairline Ink’s highly advanced technique, the client has double the benefits: real texturized hair, with the appearance of thickness and fullness that only Scalp Micropigmentation can provide — a truly innovative way to achieve real results.
It is best to visit us in person for a consultation to decide at which stage of your hair transplant Scalp Micropigmentation should be performed. In the majority of cases, the hair transplant procedure should be done in the first instance. However, there may be cases in which the Scalp Micropigmentation should begin before the medical procedures. A consultation with Hairline Ink is always recommended, as we love speaking with potential clients to answer any and all questions you may have.
Are you unhappy with a past SMP treatment, or did you choose another provider and didn’t get what you expected? We will help you get back on track! Our team of All-Star practitioners have repaired countless bad scalp micropigmentation treatments from other clinics or tattoo shops. If you have received a treatment that you don’t feel meets your expectations, stop your provider from adding any more pigment and allow us to fix it. We will assess your situation and give you honest, upfront advice and talk you through our professional treatment options.
Scalp Micropigmentation will give you a look of a full head of hair, just after a fresh – close cut hairstyle. No one will notice that it is an ink treatment, you can return to work the day after your procedure and people will think you look great, but they will have no idea that you underwent treatment. The look of our Scalp Micropigmentation is so real that no person or camera will ever pick up on your secret.
There are a wide range of reasons you may be looking into Scalp Micropigmentation as your hair loss solution. We have treated thousands of clients, each with differing reasons and causes of hair loss. Whatever the reason, Scalp Micropigmentation is your best option.
With regular hair transplant procedures, particularly FUE, most hair-density will be lost within the first few months, so it can often take up to a year to get the best results out of those procedures.
With the Scalp Micropigmentation technique, density will be added, and the desired results start to appear immediately after treatment commences.
The length at which your hair can be kept after the completion of both procedures is entirely dependent on your individual hairstyle. With the combined approach, you can have more density and fullness without the need to shave. After several months or years, you may want to have your treatment touched up.
Since Hairline Ink has been in business, we have frequently been called upon to fix the work of other Scalp Micropigmentation technicians. It is not uncommon for poorly trained practitioners to cause undesirable results on clients, which is why Hairline Ink offers reparation work to rectify poorly done past treatments and get you the look you deserve.
There are many different types of hair related diseases. Sometimes as a side effect of medication, you may start to lose your hair and experience a thinning of the hair. Lupus is becoming increasingly common in diagnosis globally and one of the biggest side effects that sufferers of this disease have to contend with is hair loss.
Thyroid problems, specifically in a woman can lead to a scattered loss of hair, caused by both under and overactive thyroids.
Alopecia is a hair loss disease that affects many men and women of all ages. It can begin to appear unexpectedly with no initial symptoms, and currently, there is no definitive cure that has been discovered.
Typical treatment options that are commonly available for those affected by hair loss are expensive, ineffective, and simply do not work. These options sometimes include painful corticosteroid injections, topical corticosteroid creams and lotions, minoxidil, dithranol creams, and surgeries.
Hairline Ink offers a simple, cost-effective, guaranteed solution, using the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment to defy hair loss and completely end the frustration of Alopecia Areata, Totalis, Universalis, Lupus and many other hair loss related illnesses.
After reading about everything that goes into micropigmentation, from the different ways treatment can help to the way treatment works, our average client with male pattern baldness falls within a pricing range of $1,800 to $3,200. (A simple scar cover-up may be less, and severe forms of hair loss may be more.) Of course, pricing for this kind of treatment isn’t going to be a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. Instead, there are a number of factors that will help us determine exactly how much your treatment is going to cost you:
The most reliable way for us to give you a pricing amount is to come in person for a consultation, but if you send us a few pictures of yourself along with a description, we can get back to you in one to two days with a quote. Interested in a quote? Click here!

Amazing work! So happy I made this decision.- Lara
Alex in San Antonio has given me the confidence I truly needed and this is only the second session. Alopecia you have been defeated. Thank you Alex!!!!- Lisa
I had the opportunity to complete my sessions with Mike in the Chicago office… I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience and taking the time to travel outside my area was totally worth it. Mike fully explained the process, made me feel confident in his abilities, and then produced amazing results… Everyone is blown away by how natural my new hairline looks.- Spencer
I did my procedure with chris in NY. I should say he did an amazing job! I feel more confident about my self. I Definitely highly recommend hairline ink!
My only regret is that there are only 5 stars to award Mike. This cat is an elite artist at what he does. It turned out absolutely outstanding… If your confidence has been rattled by male pattern baldness or receding hairline … this is a game changer! At the very least come in for the consultation and look at his portfolio and the work Mike has had done himself and I guarantee you won’t be able to book an appointment fast enough.- Keith
If you want the best of the best make sure you go and see Johnathan. He gave me my natural looking hairline back and I couldn’t be happier. I left with more self confidence and felt like I made a friend in the mean time! Also no one even believes me that I had anything done to my head, it looks that real! If you want a sure shot positive investment into your self confidence, give Hairline Ink a shout. Thanks again!!- Ryan
Using Hairline Inc. was the best decision I had ever made so glad I went to Manhattan everyone was trying to talk me about of it but my wife and kids said go for it and I did!!! Just want to thank the crew at Hairline Inc. especially Orian and Megan for there professionalism,and anyone on the fence about doing it inbox me anytime I will answer all your questions!!!!- Alex
This was the best decision I ever made and wish I would’ve done it sooner. Chris in New York was very professional and easy to talk to. Chris always made sure I was satisfied throughout the sessions. I highly recommend this for anyone that has a receding hairline. Looks very natural and blends in perfectly with my skin tone.- Jorge
Really great work you guys do, impressed!
