Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work with Long Hair?

Scalp Micropigmentation Work with Long Hair

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) was initially created with the shaved head in mind. This was because long hair looked unnatural with the treatment since the specialty ink creates the look of stubble. However, there have been recent developments in the scalp micropigmentation process that make it possible for the treatment to look natural with a long hairstyle.

Scalp micropigmentation works best with long hair when the client is suffering from certain types of hair loss. If your hairline is intact, and you’re merely experiencing hair thinning across your scalp, micropigmentation can give the illusion of depth to your hair.

Keeping hair long with scalp micropigmentation is also possible for those with receding hairlines. However, since this process looks unnatural on a bald spot adjacent to long hair, it’s necessary to limit the treatment to where your hairline has receded to. This process will lessen the severity of the recession significantly and will make your hair look much thicker.

Female pattern baldness, similarly to male pattern baldness, attacks women in their older age as a hereditary, and extremely common, form of alopecia. In women, however, this often doesn’t mean the signature horseshoe hairline look that accompanies male pattern baldness, but rather a noticeable thinning along the part and perhaps in the back of the hair. Men with long hair who often tie up their hair may also notice thinning along these same lines. Micropigmentation artists will use the technique to create density in the areas where you’re experiencing thinning.

During a procedure to add density, the artists at Hairline Ink will never add hair past the hairline. Scalp micropigmentation on a bald spot on the head will simply look like a close shave. Clients who use scalp micropigmentation to fill in their hairlines often have to keep the rest of their naturally growing hair cut extremely short to keep the look realistic. One of the goals of scalp micropigmentation is to achieve a realistic look, which is why we will not perform a procedure for density on someone with large bald spots or complete hair loss.

Of course, in both of these cases, be wary of future hair loss. If you suspect that your hairline will recede further, or your hair will thin more extensively, have a contingency plan. You can talk with a scalp micropigmentation expert to determine what the best course of action is for the preservation of your hairline.

If you’re looking to maintain a long hairstyle after scalp micropigmentation, it’s even more essential to seek out a skilled artist who has plenty of experience with the technique. Scalp micropigmentation is a complex and labor-intensive process, and it’s something that should only be left up to an experienced specialist.

When you aren’t quite sure which procedure would work best for you, it’d be best to contact the artists at Hairline Ink, all of whom have gone through the process themselves.
