It’s still red tbh and I’m not entirely sure about the profile of the temple area but Dean purposely left them high so if required they could be lowered at session 2. Head is still a little tender so will leave it a couple of days before passing judgement.22nd July 2017 at 10:42 am #32835
Sounds like you are in a bit of shock about it?22nd July 2017 at 10:43 am #32836
Whats the Mrs say?22nd July 2017 at 11:42 am #32837
No not in shock it’s just one of those things where I haven’t seen my hairline for so long, it looks a bit alien at the minute. I think my Mrs is a bit the same, when the redness fades and it calms down I’m sure it’ll look fab.22nd July 2017 at 10:46 pm #32838
Head is starting to lose the redness now and I can see more of be SMP. Got to say though guys, it takes a bit of getting used to. I’ve come away camping with the family and so far the kids haven’t even noticed Daddy’s head looks ‘different’. It’s great being away from home where I don’t run the risk of bumping into anyone I know between sessions one and two.23rd July 2017 at 8:43 am #32839
Hi Chimp! Sorry I’m late to the party… Congrats on your new look! 😀 I completely relate to your concerns but the best way to deal with it, is to just ‘rock it out’. Be the don. You got to have confidence with it, especically in the early stages, as your body language and change in persona will be as much a give away as the SMP itself… Session 2 is definitly a game changer… Once you’ve got that you’ll start to feel more confident and can start focusing on the finer details and overall look. I’m happy for u mate, I wasn’t sure u were going to see it through at one stage?
All the best.24th July 2017 at 10:04 pm #32841
Redness now gone altogether and I’ve been out and abut round town in rocking my new look. Only problem was I had too keep putting my hat on to keep it out the bloody sun (Liberty)!!!
I’m really looking forward too being able to wash my head after tomorrow but most of all, I’m really looking forward t session 2 for n Friday. I keep looking in the mirror and I tell you what guys, I really suit the new hairline. I’m sure I’m gonna JH tgo ask Dean to lower the sides around my temples, but other than that I think Dean has nailed it; not that for one minute that I didn’t think he couldn’t. I had researched Dean’s work and felt that he was the consultant for me, and asked him in personally to craft my SMP. Happy days; will check back in after Friday.24th July 2017 at 10:15 pm #32842
Go on Son! Wear it proud! Yep, takes some getting used to!24th July 2017 at 10:37 pm #32843
How were you after session 2 LJ…?25th July 2017 at 8:30 am #32844
I was great after session 2, the hairline was evened out slightly, more density, it started to look like the finished product.
Only the first hour after session 1 was I unsure & certain I had made a mistake, but after that, I was really happy.
Even now I am still suprised how good it looks & it must have been the best part of 6 months now.
I don’t bother with anti-shine etc & am still messing around with different lengths (every other day with a braun 7 shaver, just dragging it over the top & short as I can round the sides & back seems best).25th July 2017 at 9:06 am #32845
Hi LJ, interesting regarding hair length. I had shaved my head down to a zero-blade with a set of Wahl clippers on the day I had session 1 but when I got to Skalp insisted I used their Skull Shaver ‘Bald Eagle’ which I’ve got to say I really like the idea of, it was so easy, quick and mess free!!! I also think that as it shaves so close that it’ll probably give me an extra day between shaves. I had my first treatment 4 days ago now and I think I could get away with it tbh. As I like my stubble ‘thicker’ than most, when I was unsure about my SMP after my first treatment I decided to shave my stubble short, which gave a really good balance between face, hair and SMP. I had read that other forum writers had done the same and it really helped me to transition and get used to my look post-treatment.28th July 2017 at 8:06 pm #32850
Session 2 completed this afternoon with the master Dean; to say the guy is an artist would be an understatement. I can’t champion enough how this man goes about his craft. If your looking for that ‘soft, blended look’ to tie in with your age, hair and skin colour, then please, do not look any further. He is a credit to both Skalp and the art of micro pigmentation. Thanks Dean LAD 10/1029th July 2017 at 7:42 am #32851

Looks great, very very natural hairline! I agree, the Manchester boys are best for ‘age appropriate’ smp.
Mine is really settled now & I am really pleased still
