Hairline Tattoo Repair Treatment

Creative Scalps are the leading scalp micropigmentation clinic in Arizona offering professional hairline tattoo repair treatments. We work with you energetically to discover the fashion you desire and accept that there’s no industry standard as each client is special.

Components to consider incorporate the shape and wrap up of your hairline, whether that’s a common delicate wrap up or an edged-up hair style.

Your hairline ought to take after the common shape of your confront for the leading appearance conceivable. We do this by employing a combination of procedures created by our experienced lead professional Marc Allen.


The Faded Hairlines was created by Marc Allen and has gone on to become one of the most sought-after styles of SMP. Using high-density pigmentation, the result is achieved by layering different levels of color to create the illusion of natural depth and shade. The hairline is less defined and has a more subtle transition, closely mimicking the natural growth for a realistic result.


SMP can be used very effectively to cover scars, but it’s also possible to simulate the appearance of scars for a more realistic appearance. The Faux Scar Hairline uses shading and varying depths of color to create an authentic-looking scar that no one will ever know isn’t the real deal.


The Receded Hairline provides an authentic and realistic result for men who have a naturally receding hairline. In some cases, restoring a fuller hairline with SMP wouldn’t suit the shape of the head or the existing hair growth, but this shape can look extremely natural. This design is popular with older clients or those looking for a more understated finish.


For men who are looking for a subtler finish, the Dusted Hairline uses less density and lighter pigmentation to create a natural and soft appearance. This style also works well for clients with a lighter skin tone as it doesn’t create a definitive line that can be seen as easily as it does with darker skin and hair tones.


A widow’s peak is a natural hairline shape with a more pronounced V-shape in the front which sometimes runs in the family. The lines of the peaked hairline are particularly flattering, making this a very popular choice of many men looking for micropigmentation on their scalp which looks natural both up close and from a distance.


The Defined Hairline mimics the edge-up, creating a very straight and clear shape that follows where the natural hairline would have been. This style works very well on darker skin tones as it shows where the hairline could be, rather than having an undefined area.


Using the same combination of techniques as our Faded Hairline, the SMP Fade adds pigmentation and definition to the sides. Marc’s extensive background as a barber means he has the expertise to offer this more complex finish.


What is scalp micropigmentation (SMP)?

SMP is cosmetic tattooing (medical hair tattoo) that offers a solution to hair loss by replicating hair follicles that are about to grow giving the impression of a shaved look. SMP can treat anywhere on the scalp that is losing hair or even complete baldness of the scalp.

What is the cost?

Prices vary from $500 – $4000 depending on hair loss, please send us photos of your hair loss and we can provide an accurate quote with more details.

Will it look real?

Scalp micropigmentation gives the look of a shaven head or a stubble shadow look, the treatment at Creative Scalps will be undetectable, only you, the people you choose to tell and Creative Scalps will know.

How long will the treatment take?

This is dependent on amount of hair loss. As a general rule you will be looking at 3 or 4 sessions over a 6-8 week period. Each session can last 2-4 hours.

How do you choose the right colour shade?

This is done according to skin tone and/or remaining hair colour. We have huge experience of a diverse range of clients from all cultures. 1st sessions usually start with a lighter shade and we gradually build up density and darkness as we progress to complete your treatment.

How do we choose the front hairline?

We can go through some pictures of hairlines and draw some hairlines on you. When choosing hairlines it is always best to play it safe, not going too low on the first visit. Then on the second visit you would have decided how low you want to go. We can also produce various hairline styles depending on what you like (ie jagged, soft, slightly receding, edged up, lines and designs) Creative Scalps have developed techniques and procedures to ensure your hairline will be in the correct place and suit you and your style. We are from a barbering background and have years of top level experience to ensure this is done correctly.

Is SMP the same as a normal tattoo?

No. We use different pigments, inks, machines, needles and techniques. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a specialist field of its own and requires a highly experienced technician to achieve great results.

Will it damage existing hair?

No not at all, as the depth of the needle is only into the upper dermis, if anything the treatment has been known to stimulate hair growth.

Are the results permanent?

Results of completed treatments will last for years, depending on lifestyle and immune system. Many clients like to have a top-up session after 2 or 3 years just to keep their new style looking fresh.

How much does a top-up session cost?

Touch up prices vary according to what is needed. Price for an existing client is usually $300 and for SMP repair prices start at $600.

Does the colour discolour (turn orange/blue)?

No, as we only use a carbon based black pigment which is diluted to match your skin tone.

Do you match direction of hair growth?

Yes, direction of hair growth is always taken into consideration for the most realistic results.

Does the treatment hurt?

The honest answer is yes you are going to feel discomfort as with any tattoo procedure. We advise clients to have eaten well and be in good health on the day of treatment. Our pre-treatment advice also includes moisturising the scalp twice daily in the days/weeks leading up to your procedure. This will help soften the skin. The elation you will feel after solving your hairloss issues will far outweigh any discomfort from treatment. 

How flexible are you on bookings?

We can work it around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings are all ok. Creative Scalps has one of the worlds most skilled and experienced technicians so we do sometimes have waiting lists of 4-6 weeks.
