SMP
TRAINING ACADEMY

ONE OF A KIND TRAINING ACADEMY

The market is constantly expanding. As the procedure gains popularity, the demand for quality artists and clinics is growing. Average procedure prices range from $1,000 to over  $5,000, and with a consistent market of continuously balding males and females, this market will continue to grow. Scalp micropigmentation is an incredible procedure for existing PMU artists, estheticians, barbers, or anyone in the beauty industry to add as a service. It also makes a fantastic new career path for the passionate individual.

Learning what goes on in the skin before, during and after the procedure is crucial to SMP . Understanding that the skin is a living canvas, and how to manipulate that and work with the body’s natural processes helps you become the best artist possible.

This is possibly one of the most important parts of class and is totally unique to our curriculum. Learn the two sides of SMP pigment theory- the dilution method and color method. This is unique to our training and will teach you how to treat every case that comes to your practice. Learn how pigment is created and how to use it to your advantage- creating a permanent or less than permanent result. Match follicles perfectly on any skin tone as well as perfect blends for longer hair clients.

Learn the methodology behind creating the perfect hairline for each and every client. From natural looks to straight out of the barber shop styles. Learn the science behind facial symmetry and male pattern baldness to be able to achieve the most hyper realistic look.

Learn all things about machines. It is important to know what your machine is doing and the factors behind it. This will help you understand your movements as well as what is happening when you are entering the skin. Understand the reasons why you like or dislike a machine so that you can find your perfect fit.

This is a common topic left out in most trainings. Understanding your tools is extremely important. After working with Microbeau doing product development since 2018 Steven has an in depth understanding on the tools, we use for SMP procedures from machines, needles, power supplies and pigments.

Learn proper hand placement and muscle memory so that you can execute a flawless procedure. This is also extremely important for the longevity of your career. As well as efficiency in executing procedures. Hand, neck and back pain are common in this industry so learn from the beginning how to treat your body the proper way- after all your hand is your first and BEST tool . Steven’s hand exercises have become adopted throughout the entire industry as a standard in training. This is almost like martial arts training!

From starting his own business, to working with the largest brands in the world Steven has a unique understanding of marketing yourself, your business and what it takes to be successful at various levels. Learn how to style your brand – how to create striking content and how to leverage it using social media and other digital marketing platforms. Learn from our in house photographer/videographer how to take the best photos and videos.
