International Hairlines was born in beautiful sunny South Florida, which, darkly enough, has also unfortunately become known as the hub of bad SMP work. Due to the lack of regulations in Florida, there have been too many practitioners who have entered into the business with zero or little training and are looking to make a quick buck by consistently botching clients’ scalps and, even worse, training others in one or two days.
There are literally only a handful of good SMP artists in South Florida, headed by none other than Seif Sidky. One day Seif was talking to an old friend of his, Shay Nissim, and expressed his dismay with the number of repairs and correction treatments he is having to perform on a weekly basis. So after a few conversations, Shay decided to start a new international scalp micropigmentation brand that only associates with the world’s best SMP artists; a brand which will be distinguished for unbelievable and undetectable results consistently; an integrity-driven company that will nurture new artists for the long term, and not just train them in a couple of days and leave them out in the cold to fend from themselves, as is with the current status quo. And this problem is not unique or confined to Florida – it is prevalent around the world, as we later came to find out. But where there is a problem, there is an opportunity to build something special – something much better.
Striving for perfection & nothing less
Every client that is treated by International Hairlines will not leave the final session of treatment without being 100% satisfied – guaranteed! Stellar reviews for all our artists is just the tip of the iceberg. From consultation to the final treatment, we pledge to always treat our clients with courtesy and respect in a clean, comfortable, non-pretentious, and safe environment.
International Hairlines operates or has affiliate partners in the following cities:
The name “International Hairlines” stems from our ability to accurately reproduce any type of hairline in a natural and undetectable manner. Whether it is a hard, sharp hairline, popular in the United States, or a softer, gradually receded hairline (more popular in Europe), widow’s peaks and every shape in between, we have practiced and perfected it all – hairlines from all around the world. Since the hairline is literally in the forefront of scalp micropigmentation, we believe that if it lacks a natural appearance, the results will not look on par with our standards, so that is why we take great pride in our hairlines. Aside from the hairline, our artists also pay very close attention to key factors such as blending, matching, feathering, density-building, texturing, scar concealment, etc., in order to produce those undetectable natural results.
Most practitioners have been trained to use one type of needle when performing scalp micropigmentation. Not our artists! They are trained to use different types of needles in order to achieve the optimal results. Not every skin type can be treated by one needle exclusively. The art and the experience rests in being able to determine when and where to utilize the many tools available at our artists’ disposal.
(Master Artist - South Florida)
Seif is one of the most recognized and well-respected SMP artists and has recently won the prestigious Scalp Guru award for “Best Worldwide SMP Practitioner 2018” as voted by his peers around the world. A consummate perfectionist, his innate attention to detail, combined with his passion for helping people feel their best has helped him produce some outstanding scalp micropigmentation work on clients from all walks of life and of different backgrounds. While with Scalp Aesthetics in past years, Seif received awards for the artist who produces the “Best Natural Hairline” as well as the “Best Business” award, and in the process has become one of the busiest and most successful artists in the world.
He has since shifted his focus away from his own thriving clinic, and is now concentrating on training, mentoring, and helping other artists develop the skills necessary to make it in this industry. And this is why he is naturally a good fit for International Hairlines and vice-versa. Seif is in charge of mentoring the locations in South Florida as well as Cairo, Egypt, from where he originates. He also runs his training center (SMP Training Center – Florida) and also occasionally treats some clients, more specifically those who need SMP repair work, Alopecia patients and other certain challenges. He is one of the most sought-after artists for repairing bad SMP procedures.
Seif strongly believes in continuous education and training, and that is why he is constantly studying and learning how to further improve the craft of SMP, for himself and for his students and mentees. He is dedicated to doing his part in ensuring this industry maintains very high standards and not succumb to unscrupulous people taking advantage of the lack of regulation, and of potential clients in the process, thereby tarnishing what others have worked so hard to accomplish.
Brian Santora is the owner and lead technician of Santora International Hairlines in New England. Brian knows all to well the struggles of dealing with hair loss. At an early age he started losing his hair and realized he wasn't comfortable with shaving his head at that time, so he started his journey into researching all areas of hair restoration, His first option was wearing a hair system, and for well over 10 years of wearing a hair system, decided enough was enough with spending all the money and wasting all the time, Wearing a hair system took its toll, and it was time to try something different. Night after night of researching products and different hair solutions, Brian stumbled upon Scalp Micro-Pigmentation. This seemed to be the perfect non-invasive, non surgical hair solution.
This was it, it was time to make a change and he found a clinic, and got his procedure done. It was a bit of journey, but at this point he is 110% happy with his decision to go with SMP. After seeing how this procedure has changed his life, he wanted to share this with others who are suffering from all types of hair loss. Brian went through the proper training with Scalp Aesthetics with Trainer Joe Taylor, and is one of the few who is certified In New England. Brian opened his own office over two years ago just North of Boston, and has been creating a name for himself within the industry.
