Why I Chose FULL for Scalp Micropigmentation Training
I first learned about scalp micropigmentation from a friend who was interested in taking a training course from an SMP artist in another state. Once I looked deeper into SMP, I was blown away by the results of this procedure. I have been a hairstylist on the Las Vegas Strip for almost 20 years and have been going to hair loss shows all over the world trying to help my clients with their hair insecurities. I have been doing extensions and top hair pieces for many years, but was never fully happy with the maintenance, especially of the top hair pieces. It wasn’t until I found out about scalp micropigmentation, that I felt I could fully help my clients in every way possible to give them the appearance of a fuller head of hair.
After learning about scalp micropigmentation, I decided to look into a training program, but wanted to make sure I found the right SMP artist to train under. I started out by researching the top artists all over the world. I’m very particular when I do classes, I feel you get what you pay for, so I always prefer to train with the best of the best. In my research of other scalp micropigmentation artists, I was really shocked when I would look closely at their before and after photos, noticing that most of them lacked the attention to detail that I want to give to my clients. That’s when I found Joe Barghi at Full Micropigmentation, and better yet, right in my hometown of Las Vegas. When I called his office to find out some details on his next training, I was blown away by his knowledge and passion for SMP. It was very clear to me that this wasn’t just a job to Joe, he was in this to make a difference in people’s lives, and because of that, I was immediately drawn to him and his vision as an artist.
I was nervous and a little freaked because I have been a hairstylist for 20 years, yet had no knowledge of the scalp micropigmentation process, an SMP tool, or anything at all when it came to this procedure. All I could think was “Oh my God, this is permanent, will I be good at this?” Joe Barghi’s scalp micropigmentation training was amazing! He was extremely informative, experienced, professional - I was so happy that I went with Joe’s training, instead of some of the other artists out there. His passion for his art shows in his work. I have now been apprenticing with Joe for a few months and I am still 100% blown away by his attention to detail on each and every client that sits in his chair. In my career I have been lucky to work with some of the top artists in my craft and I’m so thankful that I found Joe at Full Micropigmentation.
I’m confident now that I can spend some time during my apprenticeship here learning from the best and being able to one day give my clients something that they could never achieve on their own. I have learned that it is all about attention to detail, technique, and practice, practice and more practice. Every day and every head can and will be a learning experience. If you’re looking to learn SMP the right way, Joe will guide you, mentor you, and teach you throughout the entire training, and even afterwards as he supports all his previous students moving forward as they become better artists over time.
