  1. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Isn't the top of head shots me not a unfortunate side effect of balding rather than just having no hair? One of the reasons that avoiding shine is one of the big issues with SMP. If you have a shiny bonce it's a dead giveaway!
  2. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    If you look on this forum you will see plenty of example of treatments months and years down the line. But yeah I think the perception that the suppliers want you to have is that you will have a crew cut rather than a shaved head. I think even HIS were guilty of using models with cropped hair rather than genuine customers in the past. Once customers get used to the look they usually accept shaving rather than clippers. Still thing rotary cut at 10pm will probably look ok by 9am next day for anybody wanting a bit of growth.
  3. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    It sounds like you are getting the perfect reaction i,e you suit the shaved head and why do you shave when you have so much hair. That's pretty much what any of us want from this procedure. Happy Days!
  4. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Have you considered rotary shave before bed? Then your bracing the world with 8 hour stubble. Personally I would slightly lower the middle with a light and sparse sprinkle. Ideally the hairline is a blur rather than a line.Im sure once the redness subsides and pigment fades it will soften further.
  5. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    You definately want to bring the middle down and break up the hairline. The more even it is the more unnatural. Look at genuine shaved heads, wonky hairlines. Then look at the guy from MAFS to see how it shouldn't look.
  6. FUE on SMP

    And now....
  7. FUE on SMP

    I suppose fue is always an option if you decide you don't like the skinhead look and you've got about £10k to spend. David Silva's now looks great, after a year of looking like somebody had drawn lined on his head for fun !
  8. SMP after decades of hair system

    Hair system to smp can be the "best" transition as you will not need to explain density. Being a little ageist , would you worry that people thought the dramatic hair loss due to illness ?. Be interesting to see the outcome. Worst case scenario is you go back to the system.
  9. I thought Ranbir and Ian were off empire building. I didn't think they were still hands on. Is it cheeky to ask how Ian's much anticipated the/SMP combo is looking ?
  10. i think in general guys stupidly think woman are attracted to the same things that we are. We like slim, smooth, hairless bodies but thick hair and low hairlines, and think that the opposite sex will be attracted these feminine traits. Therefore 60% of guys between 18 and 24 shave their body hair. My g/f is in her 40's and i'm amazed at the guys her pals are attracted to. e.g Nathaniel Rateliff, Samuel T Herring.
  11. Actually I think he is in his 60's but looks a lot younger (now!). Lots of pictures in his multiple posts .
  12. This guy suits both looks and squarish head and small ears suit shaved heads .
  13. first one looks like a guy in his 50's , the seconds in his 40's.
  14. Your schedule sounds about right. Yes ideally you leave weeks between sessions however very few folk look decent after just 1 session so you are going to want at least two before the big reveal. It may be if you wanted longer after the 2nd you could wear a hat and say your skin reacted badly to shaving for the first time and you want time for it to look normal. In the UK very few companies have dress codes that mention headwear, and few punish.sick days that are self inflicted ( food poison, sports injury etc) so a short sick period is an option.
  15. Post first session - underwhelmed.

    The question was about pricing. Your answer inferred HIS would perform as many sessions as necessary. Of course they will if you keep paying them ! Originally the guarantee was for unlimited top ups in the first year, but people started getting 7 sessions! So it changed to 1 top up.
  16. Post first session - underwhelmed.

    Really? I was quoted a price for 2 sessions with an extra £500 for a 3rd ( which would then trigger a free top up under the guarantee if required) Maybe the pricing has changed.
  17. SMP and weight gain/loss?

    My only concerns would be 1. If I lost weight and hair was suddenly shaved to nothing would people think I was ill? 2. The various non sweating times would probably mean gaining weight and so No1 won't happen !
  18. SMP, FUE or nothing?!

    £2 a graft is amazing value. Transplants work great on celebrities, not so much on us. But I'd go for the 2 5 k plugs
  19. SMP, FUE or nothing?!

    £5k seems pretty cheap for a full FUE. You certainly wouldn't get the coverage drawn on here, at a 1000 or so grafts your getting either a thin coverage, requiring fibers etc to fill out, or an island hairline with the rest disappearing. That's if the grafts take at all. However if you have been promised a good result I'd take the FUE.
  20. my 1st treatment, bit confused/worried maybe

    Isn't the headblade a wet shave ? Confused !
  21. My experience with SMP and diffuse thinning

    I've seen some of the, shall we say less established SMP providers, push the idea of using SMP to "thicken" longer hair. HIS don't seem to feature it, there was one case study with a guy with a kind of mohawk cut tho.
  22. My not so good smp story so far

    Just to confirm "a His practitioner " or a recognised HIS clinic ? In about 8 years in this forum I haven't seen results like this which could mean you have a unique Constitution, or HIS have let their standards slip on you
  23. One of the best results and would fool even forum members.
  24. SMP Results

    I have always been under the impression that the treatment lightens in time rather than darkens.
  25. my 1st treatment, bit confused/worried maybe

    I think the high hairline to match age theory is a bit overplayed. Most people don't bald by their hairline movining backwards, it's thinning all over. Personally I think some of the "worse" results are dense high hairlines, your eyes are drawn to the huge forehead!
