Blending, from English to blend, a term whose meaning is to mix or combine several elements to get a single product.
In order to understand exactly what blending is in terms of Hair Micropigmentation, we can place ourselves in a typical scenario where the client appears before the specialist technician with an idea that later turns out not to be the most appropriate for his particular case. It is very frequent that this idea is that the treatment is limited exclusively to the area of the entrances or to the frontal zone, because perhaps the perception that he has of his level of alopecia does not adjust completely to reality. And the reality is that in rare situations there are cases in which prominent entrances are not accompanied by a loss of hair density throughout the upper part of the head and especially in the crown.
It should be remembered that Hair Micropigmentation is a treatment that, once performed, involves cutting the hair frequently so that it looks good and above all natural. For this it is essential that the tonality of the entire head is homogeneous. The tone must be the same in areas not affected by alopecia, in areas with lower density and also where there is no longer hair. To achieve this effect, the specialist must play with the hue of the pigments used and with the density of the points or deposits.
This last thing is what specialists in this field call blending, gradually overlap pigment and hair. The technician does not stop where the hair begins to grow as if it were a marked limit, but continues to work between the existing follicles to achieve a subtle and imperceptible transition.
Today, thanks to their extensive experience, some technicians have achieved excellent results by reconstructing, in addition to the front line, the laterals. For this, a total mastery of blending and the use of exact tones in the pigments used are essential.
Similar to the pigment that mixes with hair, specialists also gradually finish many treatments. The highly demanded faded front line effect is achieved by “turning off” the pigment as the deposits become more tiny and scattered.
