First session monday 21st july manchester clinic

Recommended Posts

Cheers mick, yes ive had a play with wor lasses eyeliner pencil and i reckon it will come down another 3 to 5mm with no issues with frowning. Defo want the sides brought further in as is still looking rather receeded for the look i want. Only 26 so might aswell try and take a few years off while im young lol! Yes i know theres a fine line between a good smp and bad but i think theres room for slight improvment to my taste. Still very happy at this stage ;)

Looks fantastic bro...i told ya he was a top fella lol. Bet he had  you chatting away non stop :lol:

 

Regarding the admendments to hairline, i would say go for as long as it doesnt interfere with your frown lines as this would be unatural.

 

All you need is the 2nd session density now and your sorted.... :rolleyes:

Had a quick play with a photo editor on my phone as im trying to deceide how i want my finished side profiles and hairline to be at my second session. Im not artist but as close as i can get lol!

 

Thoughts on a postcode are any ideas that would suit my head will be a great help. Looking for the full head of hair look as still to much of a receeded look at the minute for the smp look i want

That looks about right with the hairline I think mate. The one you did earlier in the thread looked a little bit too low in my opinion. I'd be careful with the side profile though. If you go with that shape make sure the density is kept low so that it doesn't end up looking too fake.

Its a nightmare mate trying to think exactly what i want to do with the side profiles lol. Dont want them looking too full on as will ruin the smp look but i do like the look of good side profiles i have seen from previous clients photos. Think i have the hairline i want bang on and mebbies reduce the side profile curve slightly and have it less dense and i should look good fingers crossed

Pep im glad my post has made you think about getting this treatment. I know the feeling mate i used to plan me nights out going to bars i know i could get away with wearing a hat and dodge the nights out that i couldnt. I could take banter on the chin on most night with pals who have a full head of hair. But deep down when i got home and looked in the mirror it would kill me inside the way i used to look and how i look now. Im at the beginning of my smp treatment but so far all is well and looking forward to gettin my second session underway and being able to the ditch the NY caps for good!! Go for it man lifes to short to sit on the fence. In my eyes its a no brainer from having a bald head at the age of 26. All the best mate and crack on and go for it get your life back ;)

Pep i bought a remington beard trimmer/clippers cheap and cheerful for about 30 quid from asda about a year ago. Does the job but i will treat myself to something better like a foil shaver after my second session to get a nice close shave. Might aswell for the amount of money i habe payed for my smp lol! I wont tell the wife this tho ha

I can relate man I was/am also the hat guy. It's just so awkward man and it takes away your manliness..

But let's leave all that behind :) Also having my first session this week.

Hoping it will work out as good as yours! Any tips for choosing the hairline first session?

Bye bye caps!

Defo mate i can totally relate to that but hopefully we both get sorted out the way we want and ditch those caps for good ;) i choose a subtle hairline to play it safe on 1st session so i could wear it a few days and see how i wanted the final hairline to be. After lots of blunting out our lasses white eyeliner i came up with the hairline i previously posted with a bit of photo editing on my phone lol! I want a full head of hair look but not to sharp lines etc as i think that can make or break the smp in my eyes. Will defo be rounding the hairline up slightly and drop 2mm. And i want the side profiles brought further forward as still too receeded to what i want. Why look 5 years younger when you can look 10 for the same price lol! Good luck mate

Beginning to think i should have posted this in the diary section sorry my bad lol!

 

Well its day 5 post 1st session and it has never felt so good to shave my heed and have a light shower and moisturise the hell out of my head. Looks slightly faded but nothing too bad. Roll on tuesday for some more pain in the hot seat lol. No pain no gain ;)

Well bit gutted at the minute after shaving and washing earlier on to find the smp has quite significantly faded around front of hairline and even more on temple areas to the point where its barely visable. Danny went for shade 24 but i think it will have to go darker on tuesday and alot more work on hairline amd temple areas. Hopefully 3 sessions will be enough as with just buying a new house and car i really dont have another couple of grand to shell out on further treatments. Fingers crossed better results from second session!

It's just part of the process. If he'd gone any lower than 24 and you didn't fade as much - it'd be too dark.

Tuesday is your second, right? That's the big session. He will see how much it has faded, and then be able to evaluate

what shade is best for you.

 

Good luck Tuesday. Keep us all updated.

Yes mate seems to happen to most people on first session but thought i would hold the ink better as i understand its slightly different from normal tattoo ink and obviously this is your head but im covered in tats and have a full colour sleeve 5 year ago which is just as bright and unfaded as when i first got it done. Would have been better if it had held as a sort of basecoat before the dense going over at 2nd session but not to worry as alot has still held up mostly the crown. Yep pics will follow after tuesdays treatment. Cheers

Second session done today with Danny at manchester. What a talented top bloke he is. I am forever in his debt for the work he has done to my hair and cannot recommend him enough. Great banter and his work is spot on. Im looking forward to goin to a mates stag doo on sat and sporting a "full head of hair look" few pics to follow, head is still raw as only done a few hours ago so will post some more pics when redness has settled down. I ended up drawing the hairline in which i mastered in the week ive had from my first session with lots of trail and error lol! And dropped to shade 22
