Scalp Micropigmentation Training

Considering a career in scalp micropigmentation?

ScalPerfection is an award-winning micropigmentation clinic, and we now offer comprehensive scalp micropigmentation training courses.

The Hair Loss Industry

In the UK, at least 50% of men over 50 will experience some kind of baldness and two thirds of all men are affected by male pattern baldness, meaning that there are over 7 million men affected at any time. Furthermore, around 1 in 5 women over 25 are currently experiencing hair loss or hair thinning. Existing hair loss products are becoming outdated or ineffective, so it’s easy to understand why sufferers are looking for an alternative solution.

Scalp Micropigmentation

SMP, or scalp micropigmentation, is the only hair loss solution that is 100% effective. Mimicking the appearance of hair follicles, it is a permanent solution without surgery, transplants or other evasive procedures. Learn from award winning scalp micropigmentation artist Grant Emerson, who started ScalPerfection after having suffered his own hairloss and benefiting from SMP treatment.

Why learn with ScalPerfection

Comprehensive learning

Many other SMP training providers offer 1-day courses, after which you are considered ‘fully qualified’. Our course is fully comprehensive and in-person, allowing you to gain knowledge and skills from an expert in the SMP field.

Invest in your future

A ScalPerfection, we’re passionate about the high-quality service that we provide to our clients. If scalp micropigmentation is your chosen career, we want to give you the very best start. Our Advanced Beginners course is the most comprehensive training available and ensures that you are supported and assessed from theory through to practical, including completing a full treatment for a client and seeing the healed
results.

Full Assessment

We will require you to complete a full treatment course (3 sessions and
fully healed) before being approved by us. Many other SMP trainers only require
assessment of one session, but we want to make sure that you are competent and
confident at every stage

More than just the treatment

We want to help your business be a success, so will provide you with extensive lists of the equipment you’ll require, in addition to advice on essential business elements such as licence applications, health and safety management and marketing.

Essential equipment

Both of our Beginners courses provide you with an equipment kit, to help get your business started. The Basic Beginners kit is valued at over £200, whilst the Advanced Beginners kit is worth over £600.

Admin Support

We will provide students with all necessary paperwork for an SMP business, including consultation forms, health questionnaires etc.

Photography service

Whilst with us on your practical days, we will take photos of you working (in your own branded clothing if possible) to provide content for your website and social media etc.
