THE FAUX HAIRLINE (SMP style by Marc Allen)

(Video transcript below).

Hi Guys, today, we’re talking hairlines and right now I’m going to talk to you about Faux Scar Hairline.

Now, the faux scar is just the flash word for a false scar. There are plenty of people in the SMP industry dropping a few little scars in places. I thought it looked pretty cool. In my early days, coming from a professional barbering background, I would often drop scars into people’s hairstyles. When I was cutting hair, I would often curve it just near the edge of the hairline.
That all look pretty cool, just as a style. Then as we progressed, and started adding scars into the front and behind, it was more of a thing to create a more natural look on somebody. If you’ve got a scar in your SMP and it’s done right, then it draws the attention away from the actual SMP work. Let’s say see somebody with SMP and their scalp micropigmentation work wasn’t very good, you might spot them and go, “That guy’s got a head tattoo”, that’s where the scar comes in quite handy as mentioned because the focus is taken away from the SMP work itself.
When asked “Would you like to have a scar in with your SMP?” some people might feel a little uncomfortable, however, some people naturally have scars that you can’t quite see, but they’re just in their skin. What we can do is we can just pencil them in, leave a little gap and as you get to the end of your scalp micropigmentation session, you’ve got that faux scar style if you want it (we can always fill this in).

Over a multiple-session treatment, you can say, “Okay, I’m going to have a little scar here, maybe two, maybe one over here in the back.” As you go through the treatment process, if you decide it’s not for you, you can always fill them in later as previously mentioned. It’s such a tiny area that one session would fill it in anyway.
What I really like doing is adding the faded hairline that we talked about before with the scar. If I’ve got somebody that wants a scar coming into the front, we’ve got the scar coming through, and you can see it quite distinctively behind the hairline. As it comes through, it’s into the faded hairline and then it just disperses away. That’s my favourite kind of scar work to add in there on somebody. I think that looks really natural, and you can get some amazing great results with it. For those of you that want a little bit of style chucked in, a little bit of something that might throw people’s eyes off, then a faux scar is the way to go.
Your hairline must be in the correct place to frame the face and achieve the best look. We do this using a number of techniques that have been developed by our award winning lead technician Marc Allen.

SMP is cosmetic tattooing (medical hair tattoo) that offers a solution to hair loss by replicating hair follicles that are about to grow giving the impression of a shaved look. SMP can treat anywhere on the scalp that is losing hair or even complete baldness of the scalp.

Prices vary from £600-£2500 depending on hair loss, please send us photos of your hair loss and we can provide an accurate quote with more details.

Scalp micropigmentation gives the look of a shaven head or a stubble shadow look, the treatment at Creative Scalps will be undetectable, only you, the people you choose to tell and Creative Scalps will know.

This is dependent on the amount of hair loss. As a general rule, you will be looking at 3 or 4 sessions over a 6-8 week period. Each session can last 2-4 hours.

This is done according to skin tone and/or remaining hair colour. We have huge experience of a diverse range of clients from all cultures. 1st sessions usually start with a lighter shade and we gradually build up density and darkness as we progress to complete your treatment.

We can go through some pictures of hairlines and draw some hairlines on you. When choosing hairlines it is always best to play it safe, not going too low on the first visit. Then on the second visit you would have decided how low you want to go. We can also produce various hairline styles depending on what you like (ie jagged, soft, slightly receding, edged up, lines and designs) Creative Scalps have developed techniques and procedures to ensure your hairline will be in the correct place and suit you and your style. We are from a barbering background and have years of top level experience to ensure this is done correctly.

No. We use different pigments, inks, machines, needles and techniques. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a specialist field of its own and requires a highly experienced technician to achieve great results.

No not at all, as the depth of the needle is only into the upper dermis, if anything the treatment has been known to stimulate hair growth.

Results of completed treatments will last for years, depending on lifestyle and immune system. Many clients like to have a top-up session after 2 or 3 years just to keep their new style looking fresh.

Touch up prices vary according to what is needed. Prices for an existing client can variety from £470 to £1000.

For best results you would need the treatment to dry heal for 4 days after each treatment. So this would mean avoiding sweat, water and any sorts of creams, lotions etc….
After this period you can slowly increase activity.

Everyone is different depending on skin types. Immediately after treatment our technician will clean your treatment and use an anti-redness topical anaesthetic so you will leave the clinic looking and feeling great. The redness may possibly be with you for a day or two typically.

The treatment is perfectly safe, we use sterile equipment and brand new packaged needles for every procedure. We take health & safety very seriously and are fully insured and regulated.

No, as we only use a carbon based black pigment which is diluted to match your skin tone.

Yes, direction of hair growth is always taken into consideration for the most realistic results.

The honest answer is yes you are going to feel discomfort as with any tattoo procedure. We advise clients to have eaten well and be in good health on the day of treatment. Our pre-treatment advice also includes moisturising the scalp twice daily in the days/weeks leading up to your procedure. This will help soften the skin. The elation you will feel after solving your hairloss issues will far outweigh any discomfort from treatment. 

We can work it around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings are all ok. Creative Scalps has one of the worlds most skilled and experienced technicians so we do sometimes have waiting lists of 4-6 weeks.
