When I first heard about scalp micropigmentation, I had never seen anyone with the procedure or seen any ads for it. The more I researched about scalp micropigmentation, the more intrigued I became. So, in 2014 I decided to become a scalp micropigmentation specialist. As one of the first practitioners in Canada, it was difficult to find a reputable company where I could train to be the best.
Becoming a master
I decided to do my initial training with an established American scalp micropigmentation company. After completing the program, I opened a Canadian studio for the company in Hamilton, Ontario. As the years went by, a network of scalp micropigmentation technicians formed where we could exchange knowledge and ideas. This inspired me to learn everything about scalp micropigmentation— so I traveled to the UK to get Master Training from highly experienced specialists.
This is where I attended Scalp Guru’s 1st conference for SMP artists. Meeting all the other technicians in person, building friendships and networking, gave me new energy and vision. Since then, I broke out on my own and have received multiple international scalp micropigmentation awards. I’ve also spoken on expert panels across the world sharing my knowledge and demonstrating my SMP skills. Now based out of Oakville, Ontario, I have helped hundreds of people regain their confidence through the art of scalp micropigmentation.
We’re all in this together
I’ve always been very intuitive of how women think and feel about their looks. From a very young age, women are bombarded by images and social ideals. Constantly told by the media how they should look, what men find attractive, and what other women think is beautiful. We are conditioned to compare ourselves with celebrities. Yearning for the perfect figure with a small waist and round hips; beautiful eyes with long lashes; full, sexy lips; long, shiny, luscious hair; full breasts… I am sure you get the picture by now. On top of that, our hair and makeup must be perfect, and let’s not forget about being expected to dress a certain way.
Saying all that, I always thought to myself that men had it ridiculously easy, and I wasn’t the only one. All my female friends thought that men didn’t really care about how anybody perceived them. We knew that some men like building their muscles and some like to dress up when going out. That’s it. No starvation diets, no makeup, no spending hours in front of the mirror, no stress about the way they look. Well, was I ever wrong! After working with many males, I understood how similar all our feelings and insecurities are.
The best solution for hair loss
It is not easy to age and see the changes in your body. Hair loss is alarming at 55, depressing at 25, and shocking at 18. The difference between women and men dealing with these insecurities is men don’t talk about them fearing ridicule or judgement for being too sensitive, vain or egocentric. Because of bottling it all in, a lot of men become depressed and withdrawn from a social life.
I believe that scalp micropigmentation is the best modern solution for hair loss and balding. Scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical, non-invasive and permanent procedure with instant visible results after just one session. No down time like with hair transplants, no medications with side effects, no messy sprays or fibers. SMP is very cost effective— usually a fraction of the cost of hair transplants and in the long run less expensive than hair systems, hair fibers or Rogaine.
Scalp micropigmentation will change your life
What I love the most about SMP transformations is the way it builds confidence in my clients. With every session, they’re smile is bigger. They stand up taller, hold eye contact longer, there is a sparkle in their eyes again and finally start leaving their hats at home. I keep in touch with many of my clients, so many times I hear they started going out more, started dating again or going out for nice dinners with their partners, or doing more activities with their kids like swimming, bike riding and going on roller coasters. Their life often changes for the better and they get promotions at work because they become more outgoing and confident.
Let’s face it. Confidence is sexy! and sometimes a hairline makes all the difference. Contact us to learn more!
