How To Choose a Natural Hairline for SMP, Hairline Tattoos

One of the primary reasons that men elect to receive a hairline tattoo is due to the fact that it will appear natural. Scalp micropigmentation creates the illusion of a closely shaved head, and is therefore an optimal choice for those concerned about hair loss. The most crucial aspect of the entire process is choosing the right hairline – something that is done before the technician begins working.

Steps to know before getting a Hairline Tattoo?

SMP, otherwise known as Scalp micropigmentation, is a non-surgical solution to hair loss that is permanent and lasts four to six years on average. A trained technician uses a micro-needle to place hundreds of tiny dots of pigment into the top layers of the scalp. Some fading of the ink may occur over time, and touch-ups are a normal part of long-term upkeep.

The Consultation

Don’t worry, we won’t give you just any old hairline. We know how important it is for you to look your best, so we make sure to design a natural-looking hairline that meets your expectations.

The Procedure

It takes two or three sessions to complete a hairline tattoo. The good news is, you’ll see an immediate difference after only one treatment. During the second and third sessions, your micropigmentation technician will add more layers and spend time blending the tattoo with your existing hair. It’s these small details that give you a full, natural look. So, if you’re considering a hairline tattoo, be sure to go to a qualified technician who can give you the results you want.

Enjoying a new confidence

After the final session has been completed, it takes most people around four days to heal. Once the healing process is complete, you can return to all your normal activities with a newfound confidence. No more worrying about thinning hair, crooked hairlines, or saying no to fun activities because your comb-over won’t stay in place.

As noted before, your technician will work with you to choose a hairline style that works best for you. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. When it comes to really great scalp micropigmentation, hairline design is just as important as technical skills. The shape of your head, your age, your natural hairline, and your lifestyle are all considerations when deciding on the right hairline.

Different options for your new hairline

Knowing the different options before choosing a hairline is extremely important and there are a few basic hairline shapes that can help you decide which type of style you’re looking for overall.

The 'ol Natural" hairline

A very slightly receding hairline is a trendy barbershop cut known for a slight edge at the front of the hairline with a feathered (soft) front. This more delicate type of defining line creates a more natural looking design which is usually the most unnoticeable to people that don’t know you had the procedure.

The "Defined" Look

Unlike the previous style, a defined hairline puts the emphasis on the edges of the hairline which is typically known as the “defined barbershop look”. At Scalps, we have mastered how to achieve a defined hairline without oversaturating the area.

The "Defined" Look

Some men have embraced their receded hairline their whole life. Changing it would look unnatural and maybe even make them feel less confident than they were before. If a receded or imperfect hairline is part of what defines you, we don’t want to change that. Your SMP specialist will work with you to recreate a slightly improved but still natural-looking hairline that doesn’t make you feel like a fraud.

If you’re not 100% sure about which hairline is right for you, don’t worry. Your specialist can begin the first session and the two of you can make adjustments as you go. With your input and the skills of an SMP expert, you’re sure to get the perfect results you deserve.


Is it time to take the next step? If you’re tired of living with thinning hair, trying to cover bald spots, or feeling a general lack of confidence because of your hairline, maybe it’s time to contact SCALPS for your free consultation. With one phone call, we can start designing a hairline tattoo that will compliment your style and restore your confidence.
