Service – Scalp Shading 2017-09-10T17:33:47+00:00


Using a 3D shading and feathering technique, NY semi permanent makeup is applied on the hair loss area of the scalp. This creates the illusion of real hair without the painful surgery. Any area of the scalp with hair loss can be shaded, from the “dome” to the hairline. NY is perfect for men and women, all styles and types of hair. Colors are customized to match your hair color, so it is virtually blends with the existing hair to create a full, natural look.

Nobody asks for hair loss or thinning hair, but unfortunately it’s a fact of life for millions of men and women. Until now traditional treatments were limited to expensive topical medications, painful surgeries, and obvious wings/hair pieces. Introducing NY semi permanent scalp shading, a hair loss alternative to the days of powders and wigs with natural looking results that last up to 3 years.

It’s happened. Your full and luscious locks have started thinning out – leaving you with unsightly bald patches and a poor self-image to boot. Don’t dismay. Here’s the lowdown on the latest scalp shading procedure to give you back your confidence.

Men and women with hair loss traditionally have had few options to reverse the process. Overpriced topical medications don’t work on extensive baldness. Painful surgeries such as hair transplantation, skin grafts or scalp reduction cost big bucks and typically look unnatural and obvious. Wigs and hair pieces stand out and need to be replaced each year. NY semi permanent scalp shading gives a fresh alternative to these uninspired solutions.  NY’s scalp shading procedure lasts up to three years and looks natural. It simply camouflages hair loss for a youthful look.

NY’s unique 3D shading and feathering technique completely covers up any areas of thinning hair and looks just like real hair. This procedure works on any type or style of hair and on any area of the scalp that needs it. Your technician will work with you to choose your desired shape and style. She’ll also fully-customize the color, so it blends in with the rest of your hair for a natural look.




NY is a proprietary technology developed by acclaimed Hollywood entrepreneur and former special effects makeup expert Tanya York — with the help of a team of mechanical engineers and cosmetic biochemists.

The goal was to develop a makeup procedure that would look more natural than any form of permanent or semi-permanent makeup and eliminate all side effects. Side effects of other forms of permanent makeup range from short term such as down time, scabbing, bruising and heavy bleeding to the long term side effects such as scarring, inks that change colors on the skin and the shape of the makeup that changes over time due to the skin’s aging process.

NY has eliminated all such side effects through:

  • Equipment: Specialized equipment developed by NY for unrivalled precision.
  • Clinics: NY procedures are performed in a certified, professional medical office passing regular, stringent County Health Department inspections.
  • Products: Special, natural pigments developed that will not change color and are hypoallergenic (safe for your skin).
  • Technique: A technique developed over the years to ensure the ideal, custom shape and color is provided to each client
  • Technicians: All technicians are personally trained for months, and certified, by Master Micro Artist Tanya York. NY Technicians are not licensed to perform services on Ms. York’s clients until their work is indistinguishable from hers.

There are no other forms of permanent cosmetics like it.


How many sessions do I need?

Initially 4 sessions 2 weeks apart are needed for each area of the scalp. During each session more pigment is added into the scalp in thin layers gradually changing the color of the skin and matching it to your natural hair texture and color. You see results after each session. During a 1 hour session pigment can be added to about a 6 inch circle of the scalp although each area of the scalp is different in terms of sensitivity and how fast our technicians can apply pigment. Each Scalp Shading client is unique, so the number of sessions needed to obtain the desired results will vary based on each clients individual situation.

What can I expect after each session?

Before each session be sure sure to arrive with no products or topical treatments in your hair. After each session you will have to go home and wash your hair, as it will be messy from the procedure. You will see the results right away as the pigment settles into the skin. After each session the pigment will appear darker then over the next 2 weeks it lightens up in time for your next session where we add more pigment. After each session the color fades less. We will give you an after care kit that should be used 2 times per day for 5 days after each session. This will keep the scalp sanitized and moisturized. The results are amazing!

How is NY™ Scalp Shading applied?

NY semi-permanent makeup is non-surgical; the hair loss application takes about an hour per session, and there is no down-time. NY™ clients fully participate in choosing their desired look, shape, and colors. Colors are customized specifically for each client, so every NY™ application is unique to the client’s desires. The treatment involves the gentle placement of mineral based pigments onto the outer derma layer of the scalp.
