Microblading grew in popularity for the semi-permanent enhancement that it can provide the brows. Mimicking the look of real hair, it can help fill in, shape, and provide a permanent makeup look. However, microblading is technically a form of tattooing and has other applications than just the eyebrows. Let’s look at the question, “Does microblading work on the scalp?”
Yes, microblading can be used on the scalp. When used on the scalp there are two primary uses. First, for women losing hair along their hairline, microblading can help disguise this and maintain the rounded look of the hairline when the hair is pulled into a ponytail. Typically, these are small patches of baby hairs or under hairs that have fallen out over time.
The second application is for people who have completely lost their hair. Microblading can enhance a totally bald head by adding the appearance of stubbly hair growth. Often, it looks like a very close buzz cut. For those who can no longer grow their own hair, it simply enhances their appearance.
