Let us guide you through the process and provide valuable insights to ensure a seamless transition.

Styling Your Hair After SMP

After undergoing SMP at Ohio SMP Studio, your unique hair loss pattern and texture will influence your styling choices. Our experienced practitioners will assess your specific case and offer personalized recommendations to care for your hair following the treatment. Here are some essential styling tips to consider:

Hair Length: While many clients opt for a short buzz-cut style after SMP, those with natural hair growth can achieve a very natural look. However, uneven hair growth might result in a patchy appearance. Trust your SMP practitioner to advise you on the ideal hair length that complements both your hair tattoo and desired style.

Maintaining a Clean Look: If you have minimal existing natural hair or are entirely bald, keeping your hair buzzed or closely cut will ensure seamless blending with your SMP treatment.

Mastering the Shaving Technique:

For bald clients, maintaining a neat look may require shaving 2-3 times a week. Shaving your head with SMP is a straightforward process, and following these three steps can make it even easier:

  • Remove any remaining hair from the shaver and disinfect your tools.
  • Tighten the skin gently, ensuring the blade stays flush against the scalp, and shave against the grain for a close shave.
  • Shave your entire head evenly, ensuring a consistent and clean appearance.

Recommended Tools: If you’re new to shaving your hair, don’t hesitate to ask your practitioner for tool recommendations. Some popular choices include:

  • Andi’s T-Outliner
  • Wahl Foil Shaver
  • SkullShaver

These shavers provide a close shave, helping you maintain a sleek buzz cut. Alternatively, you may opt for a wet shaver if it suits your preferences.

Maintaining Hair Growth with SMP:

During the SMP treatment, pigment is deposited approximately 2 mm into the scalp, avoiding any contact with the hair follicles situated around 4 mm deep. As a result, the SMP process should not interfere with hair growth. After receiving treatment at Ohio SMP Studio, your hair will continue to grow naturally without any disruption.

The Simple Process at Ohio SMP Studio:

At Ohio SMP Studio, we make the process of getting your hair tattoo a breeze with the following steps:

Consultation: We offer complimentary consultations at our Columbus, OH location, either in person or over the phone. During this meeting, our experienced practitioners will understand your goals and present available options. They will also create a hairline mock-up, providing you with a glimpse of your completed treatment. Feel free to ask any questions to ensure you feel comfortable and confident with the process.

Treatment: Most clients typically require 2-3 treatment sessions scheduled 10-14 days apart. Scheduling your first treatment is as easy as contacting our local clinic or discussing it during your consultation. During the first session, our skilled practitioners will tattoo tiny points replicating hair follicles, delivering immediate results. Aftercare instructions are simple to follow. The subsequent sessions will enhance the density of your scalp and make minor adjustments to your hairline. Once you’ve completed all your sessions, touch-ups will only be needed every 4-6 years.
