Style Options for Scalp Micropigmentation

When you opt to have Scalp Micropigmentation, you are able to choose from a variety of different styles. When you meet with your hair loss physician during your initial consultation, you can discuss what your goals are and let them know which style you were hoping to obtain. For most styles, the main goals are to recreate a hairline and side profiles and match the color and shade to your original hair.

When you first are looking at someone’s hair, you will generally notice their hairline. Scalp Micropigmentation allows patients a great deal of flexibility in creating whatever sort of hairline they would like. Some patients opt to recreate the hairline they once had, while others look to create an entirely new one. You are not limited when you are choosing a hairline and it will all come down to your age, style preference and how well you tolerate change. There are many different types of hairlines to choose from, including:

  • A restoration of what your original hairline
  • Defined hairline
  • Further forward hairline
  • Slightly receded hairline
  • Soft and broken hairline

In addition to these hairline choices, you have additional options of having your hairline be completely straight, having a rounded hairline, or perhaps if you are older you might want to go with a more receded hairline in order to have a more natural appearance. The hairline you choose will depend on your age, the shape of your face and how dramatic you would like the change to be.

Another main element that will define your new look after having Scalp Micropigmentation is what side profile style you want to choose. After determining your hairline, you will need to think about what side profile style you want, and options include:

  • Rounded side profiles
  • Sharp or razored side profiles
  • Soft side profiles

In addition to choosing the shape of your new hairline, you also need to think about the color and shade you would like. Your hair loss physician will be able to create a pigment that will be an exact match to your original hair. Any color or shade that you require will be created for you in order to achieve results that look very natural.

An important thing to consider when you are choosing your new style and color is how much of your own natural hair you have left, where it is positioned and what color it is. If your main goal is to maintain a very natural appearance, it is best to use Scalp Micropigmentation to match your existing hair color and hairline as closely as possible. If you do not have any existing hair and are completely bald, there are many more options available to you, since you are not trying to match it up with any hair that already exists.

If you get Scalp Micropigmentation and want to change the look as you get older, your style can be changed. With a laser removal process, you can have your hairline reshaped and the color can be changed. You really can completely customize your look when you have Scalp Micropigmentation and there are so many style options available to you.
