At the Hair Historian we provide a uniquely exclusive scalp micro-pigmentation experience to our guests. We aim to assist our clients who have been affected by hair loss and baldness. From male pattern balding to alopecia in men and women, our technique is the best there is in SMP hair enhancement. We provide effective solutions for those who have sought SMP hair care and not received the artistic benefits the technique can provide.


To complement our grooming experience, we also educate our clients along the way. We welcome questions and dialogue that feeds the curiosity of our guests. We want you to do more than feel grooming techniques, we want you to know it and leave able to speak to it.
