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. Seif Sidky decided to create a new international scalp micropigmentation brand that only associates with the world’s best SMP artists would be able to join, a brand that is distinguished for quality results, consistently. IHL was built as an integrity-driven company that nurtures new artists for the long term. The principle is to train and support the artists to be the perfectionists that they can be when taught correctly in an environment of positivity. The current status quo of hit-or-miss partially trained staff is not acceptable as this industry continues to grow. This problem is not unique or confined to Florida – it is prevalent around the world. But where there is a problem, there is an solution. To date the Boca Raton SMP Training Center has taught many students from across all 50 states and from 10 international countries. The Training Center was built to create a core of exceptional SMP artists with hand-on training by Seif’s hand-selected staff. It is very important that you have the best in the world providing your SMP treatments. Don’t settle for Second Best.
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.
