The Shaved Head Look: How Scalp Micropigmentation Can Help Achieve It

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

The shaved head look can be a bold and confident style choice for those dealing with hair loss. However, achieving a polished and natural-looking shaved head can be difficult without the help of Scalp Micropigmentation. Otherwise known as SMP, this cosmetic procedure creates the illusion of a full head of hair. This treatment uses micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp and is also known as a hair tattoo.

How to Achieve the Shaved Head Look with SMP

The treatment goal is to create the appearance of a full head of hair, even in areas of hair loss or thinning. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally requires no downtime or recovery.

A shaved head look with SMP results from adding density to the scalp. This creates the illusion of a fuller head of hair by mimicking closely-shaven hair follicles. The SMP technician will work with the client to create a natural-looking and age-appropriate hairline. Then add density to the scalp to create the illusion of a full head of hair. The result is a polished and natural-looking shaved head.

Cost and Maintenance of a Shaved Head Look with SMP

The cost for the shaved head look with SMP depends on a few things. First, we must measure the extent of hair loss using the Hamilton-Norwood Scale defined in the linked Healthline Article. Then, we talk with the client to discover what their desired final result is. From there, we begin treatment which can take between 2-4 sessions. A typical treatment session will take roughly 1-3 hours. On average a good ballpark cost is between $2000-$4000 depending on the artist and location.
