What Clients Are Saying

Fantastic experience having my micropigmentation with Hairline Back! The level of detail Kate went into to make sure I was happy with my treatment was superb! The sessions were comfortable, sociable and I personally found them enjoyable. I would fully recommend this company as they are guaranteed to give you a life changing result just like I had.

I had my treatment done 2 years ago and it still looks brand new! Kate has done a fantastic job and I feel like I look ten years younger. Don't just accept going bald. It's crazy how getting a hair line back shapes your face. I recommend anyone thinking of doing this to give Kate a call.

If you’re looking for SMP treatment in, around or even further afield than the Yorkshire area then look no further than Hairline Back. Kate is one of the first and one of the front runners in this profession. Her attention to detail and talent, along with pride and professional conduct produce the most impeccable results. I had my first treatments done 2 years ago and recently went beck for a top up treatment. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. No hesitations in recommending this company at all, SMP really gives guys like me a big confidence boost and in my opinion knocks some years off!
