I’m considering camouflaging my hair loss with Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), and I’m wondering if I can request a symmetrical, low, aggressive hairline design? Should SMP be used to create an aggressive hairline?
One of the most crucial aspects of an SMP procedure – if it is going to be performed in this region – is the hairline. The hairline, in my opinion, can be recreated in two different ways: in a dense, symmetrical manner or in an asymmetrical, more sparse, “faded” manner.
The first, can look a bit unnatural – as hairlines are irregular and usually feature less dense feathering in the first few millimeters (“micro hairline”). The second, if done correctly, can actually appear quite natural. When SMP technicians take the time to make the hairline irregular and create a “fading” pattern with respect to density (low density in the front that eventually moves to increased density in the more posterior regions of the scalp), the results can appear fairly natural. Frankly, I wouldn’t classify this as “aggressive,” but I do think it appears natural and is the best approach.
