Liverpool barber pioneers a new groundbreaking hair loss solution
2 years ago
After years of speaking to clients about the issue of hair loss, Liverpool barber Craig Molyneux has become one of the UK’s pioneers of a relatively new process called scalp micropigmentation.
Realising the impact of hair loss on mental health and confidence, Craig discovered a non intrusive process that offering many more benefits than hair transplants.
Suitable for both men and women, micropigmentation is a procedure that uses coloured pigment to enhance features such as eyebrows, hairlines, lips, eyes and more. The procedure itself involves inserting a small, thin needle into the skin which injects a coloured pigment below the skin’s epidermis layer.
Scalp micropigmentation is basically like getting a tattoo on your head that resembles hair perfectly. It’s fast becoming a preferred option over hair transplants because it provides instant results, has less risks, is less intrusive, lasts 3 to 5 years and is a lot cheaper. After years of hearing how hair loss affects his barbering clients, Craig decided to explore scalp micropigmentation and opened a clinic on Rodney Street.
“Micropigmentation is something that isn’t talked about much but it’s growing massively. When people think of hair loss solutions they automatically think of expensive hair transplant surgery, but people are now starting to see the benefits of micropigmentation as a much better option.”
He continued: “It’s also important to mention that people think of it as a vain cosmetic thing, but I’ve seen the effects hair loss can have on people’s confidence and mental health. I’ve has cases where people have been ashamed to look in the mirror due to hair loss or scars and when I’ve treated them they’ve literally cried with emotion.”
Since setting up his business, SMP, three years ago, Craig has treated over 500 men and women — with incredible results and reviews. Previously a hairdresser and barber with years of experience working in the UK and Australia, Craig decided to move into scalp micropigmentation in order to help people with the stigma of hair loss.
He explained: “I enjoyed hairdressing and barbering for years but when I discovered micropigmentation I realised I could genuinely help people and make a difference. Years of being told hair loss stories such as people getting bullied, shamed and people having little or no confidence made me really want to do something about it.”
He continued: “I’m extremely passionate about what I do and helping people look and feel great. Hair loss and and hair treatment can come with bad press and it’s easy for people with hair to judge, but if you could see the before and after results — people being affected by it and how they feel afterwards — you’d understand.”
As scalp micropigmentation gets more and more popular, it’s thanks to people like Craig who have pioneered it — helping raising awareness of it and helping so many people in the process. A much better option than hair transplants for a number of reasons, scalp micropigmentation is the way forward for hair loss.
