One of the biggest questions or concerns is what happens when I go grey, won´t the scalp pigmentation stand out; also, does scalp pigmentation work on lighter hair colours.Unlike body art tattooing Micro Scalp Pigmentation does not use a range of colours, but varying tones to create a greater contrast against the skin complexion. With around 50 tones available, from dark to light it is possible to build up the contrast to either match any surrounding hair or give the desired result in relation to the individual´s skin complexion. 

Hair loss becomes noticeable when the remaining hair cannot block the light reflecting off the scalp, longer hair length can sometimes hide this but it becomes harder as hair loss progresses. Even with a good head of hair the shorter the hair style the look can appear thinner than reality, simply because the skin is more visible. 

Scalp pigmentation can work on both shaved and longer diffused hair loss, although the basic principle is the same he idea differs slightly. Shaved hair pigmentation is designed to mimic the look of hair stubble, to give the impression of a full head of hair, natural looking density from hair line to crown. Long hair scalp pigmentation is slightly different as the pigment cannot simulate long hair. When there is enough surrounding hair scalp pigment can mask the skin complexion to give the illusion of greater hair density. 

Changes in hair colour, going grey, when the hair is short there is little colour to see anyway, regardless of dark or a lighter colour, the longer the hair the more obvious the contrast becomes. As we are working with tones opposed to colours the concept is to build up the tone to blend with the surrounding hair, or if need be to create a look that matches the hair tone around the sides and back of the head with advanced hair loss stages. Using a combination of pigmentation tones easily allows this to work, also the general skill of the application of the pigment is an important aspect when creating a natural result. 

The lower the contrast between the hair and skin a scalp pigmentation result will be subtler, but can still work well, giving the illusion or shadow required to define a hair line that frames the face well. Although low contrast may not provide such a wow factor that is irrelevant to the individual, as long as the desired look is achieved personally for them.

Thanks BM, it´s probably the most common question we are asked, and although an important question it does not pose the problems that you would think. If we worked with colours opposed to a tone it would create the problem, but the adjustment of the tone contrast is simple, in the right hands. 


Similar to the case we posted, he has a pale skin complexion and light hair colour, so the contrast is low. Unlike a hair transplant where these characteristics add to the look or illusion of fullness with micro scalp pigmentation it is the opposite. The tone can be more subtle but still add to create the hair line to frame the face and give the look of shaved hair.
