Ciao

 

I had my second session just over two weeks ago. Despite uneven fading and, as the subject of this post is, a somewhat uneven hairline, i'm happy with the current results.

 

I hadn't really noticed the unevenness of the hairline until last night after taking a couple of random selfies. I usually use Snapchat for the impromptu moments of vanity, but last night I chose to use the default camera app of my telephone. The difference between the two, for those that may not know, is that when taking selfies on Snapchat the end result is a mirror image, whereas with the default camera app the result is flipped. Hence it was not until I walked down the mysterious path of non-Snapchat that I noticed what appears to be a rather slanted and uneven hairline.

 

I'll attach images below. Would anyone mind recommending some alterations?

 

(P.S. Please excuse my poor English. I've lived only in the UK for four years.)

 

Grazie molto!

I think it looks good to me and very natural. Besides, you don't want it completely symmetrical as it will look too perfect and fake.

Maaaaaaybe its a touch uneven

Maybe a few more dots in the middle sections??

But that's about it

Definitely dont want a perfect hairline...as much as you think you might

Cause once you do...youll regret it most likely

Then have to pay extra for another session to get it broken-up again

Or if you go too dense and too straight...maybe need laser?;S

Take it from us on here...easy does it

No real dense straight hairlines whatsoever

Lil less is more in the end

But this is hard to know and believe unless you've gone or almost gone a lil too far yourself

Only thing I could think of...is maybe getting a felt tipped pen...and adding a few dots here and there

And seeing what it looks like before ever getting anything actually done??

Go to an art store...and get a greyish fine felt tipped pen?

Its amazing how just a few dots can really screw things up

Too dense and too straight

Or not dense enough;S

Welcome to SMP

It can drive you crazy if youre after perfection

Do what you think you wanna do...but just take it easy...session by session...that's the key

This automobile is critical on a perfect hairline yet his profile pic shows one? lol Ha! :ph34r:  too easy to pick on this knob.

 

Anyway, your first thing pics look stellar imo. But your 4th pic to me doesn't look natural i'm not sure if it's the lighting but could you take more pics in different lighting conditions.

 

Thank you

Looks good don't seek perfection less is more with this, gainz- this treatment can look completely different in different lights sometimes it looks a1 other lights it vanished that's just something you have to accept if you go ahead mate, I can assure you, if you take the step your life will change, its normal to feel nervous and critical. Looking in the mirror and nor seeing a horseshoe anymore is an amazing feeling. Knowones even looked twice at my head, even people I thought would spot it straight away didn't..

thanks Dr Mach 3 for the honest feed back. I have seen the treatment look amazing in some lighting conditions and in other lighting conditions it looks absolutely dreadful. You are right, something you have to live with. It's just another worry about having to dodge certain lighting conditions and then having to worry about being called out. I mean imagine at a wedding ??? get all kinds of lighting man that would be a nightmare.

 

 

 

 

I'm still wondering when are we going to get the new pics of Ian Watson after the FUE. To be honest if the smp is really that good or advanced or what have you and Ian is totally happy with it. What did he even get fue? anybody know?

Haha. I agree Gainz, it would be a nightmare to get called out at a wedding - but it would be a pretty sad event where your head became the focus for anyone's attention... plenty to distract at a wedding... Food, bridesmaids, dance floor, booze, the next fight...

 

The problem might be your starting position of assuming there is ever a likelihood of getting called out with a good SMP. The first hand experience of so many on here testifies to the opposite.

 

I will answer the Ian/FUE question in the Ian FUE Combo thread...

can anybody tell me (and yes I've had it done, 3 years now)  how they cope with being in bars at night, when the light shines off your head and you look...um....BALD, its a complete give away, I use some powder and creams but if you sweat, you are done. 

I dont regret the procedure, but to say it now seems like I have hair would be in accurate and a joke to be honest. anybody feel the same?????

SparkleFingers- That's why you shouldn't try to make it look like you have stubble. If you want it to be realistic you have to match a completely wet shaved against the grain look and go as light as possible. Unless you have lots of hair left. You definitely should be paranoid if you try to make it match hair growth (when you are completely bald) because like you said it will disappear under certain lighting. On a real head of thick stubble this wouldn't happen to the degree it does with smp. On the other hand a thick wet shaved head of hair would disappear under certain lighting. For completely bald people the only way this procedure works is matching a wet shave against the grain and with tiny dots. Anything else will get picked up on regardless if someone let's you know they know. I know a super nice guy who wears a hairpiece. He's rich and probably pays alot for it. It doesn't look that bad but I spotted it instantly. Just because I don't call him out on it doesn't mean I don't know. I would rather wet shave and have no smp than have one that is detectable. Some people feel the opposite. Their choice.
