The SMP Fade


The SMP Fade (known in the barbering world as “the fade” or “a fade”) is a unique scalp micropigmentation technique that adds depth and definition to the sides of the scalp. This technique was created by Marc Allen and perfected by our head technician, John Douglas. Using the same combination of techniques as the Faded Hairline, the SMP Fade involves using lighter shades of pigment and building up density and shade behind the hairline, gradually fading out towards the sides. The result is a seamless blend between the pigmented area and the natural hair, creating a natural and subtle finish.

Marc’s extensive background as a barber means he has the expertise to offer this more complex finish. The SMP Fade is particularly effective for clients who want to add density and definition to the sides of their scalp, without creating a harsh or obvious line. The technique is suitable for all hair types and skin tones, and can be customized to meet each client’s individual needs and preferences.
