Since Delilah tricked Samson and robbed him of his strength along with his hair, male virility has been associated with a full head of hair. While the belief is a fictitious as the ancient myth, it persists. Men seem to panic at the first sign of thinning hair, and the beginning of a bald spot can send them rushing to the drug store to clear the shelves of Rogaine.
Most people associate male pattern baldness with aging, but it can begin at any age. According to Web MD, 85% of American men exhibit significant hair loss by age 50 and 66% experience noticeable thinning by age 35. But for an unfortunate 25% of men, baldness begins before they even reach their 21st birthday.
Hair loss is a devastating experience for men of any age. In statistics reported on StatisticBrain.com:
• 30% of men would give up sex to get their hair back.
• 47% of men would spend their life savings for a full head of hair.
• 60% of men would rather have more hair than friends or money.
Many men find hair loss products to be of limited help; and, as WebMD warns, it’s easy to get scammed. Hair transplant surgery is another option but is typically not considered until hair loss is extensive. Cosmetic tattooing offers a less well-known but extremely effective solution to hair loss when performed by the Whitney Center’s expert medical tattoo technicians.

Each person’s face is unique and so are their eyebrows; yet many brow salons take a one-size-fits-all approach to permanent brows. Like makeup artists, permanent brow artists use some general guidelines to determine brow start and end points and arch position. Unfortunately for the customer, many brow techs follow these guidelines as if they were carved in stone.
For the highly experienced permanent eyebrow artists at the Whitney Center, however, standard guidelines are merely a starting point. When creating permanent eyebrows, Whitney Center experts have the experience, advanced technical expertise and artistic talent necessary to artistically adjust brows to enhance the client’s unique personal beauty. Such “off script” application is neither possible nor advisable at the typical NJ brow salon.
Rather than hire professionally trained and experienced board-certified permanent makeup technicians, brow salons often train their own technicians To accommodate inexperienced techs, a paint-by-number approach to brow creation is often used. While this approach has the advantage of being easy to follow by inexpert technicians, such follow-the-chart solutions fail to take into account the individual differences that make each human face uniquely beautiful.
Particularly for women of Asian, African American or Latino descent, mass-produced permanent eyebrows offer woefully inadequate and often unfortunate results. Whitney Center permanent makeup artists are experts in creating beautiful African American brows, warm brown Asian eyebrows and beautifully expressive Latino eyebrows. Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all eyebrows; come to the Whitney Center for artistically created permanent brows designed just for you.
Mention that they’re starting to get “a little thin on top” and men are devastated. A few extra hairs in their hairbrush can send men into panic mode, causing them to spend secret hours peering into the bathroom mirror, searching with dread for the first signs of hair loss. The psychological impact of hair loss on men should not be underestimated. According to StatisticBrain.com, 60% of men would rather have more hair than money or friends; 47% would trade their life savings for a full head of hair; and 30% would give up sex to get their hair back!
For men, male pattern baldness is no idle fear. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 25% of men start losing hair before age 21. By age 35, 66% of men have noticeably thinning hair; and by age 50, 85% of American men exhibit significantly thinning hair and some degree of baldness.
While loss of attractiveness is certainly an issue, the repercussions of hair loss strike deep into the core of the male psyche, representing not only the unwelcome encroachment of old age but also the loss of virility. It’s no wonder that so many men turn to hair transplants to restore their appearance. However, as many men have discovered, hair transplants carry their own appearance risks. Harvesting can leave unsightly scars that shine an uncomfortable spotlight on choices men would rather keep private.
Scar camouflage by the Whitney Center’s expert medical tattoo technicians can hide hair transplant scars and keep your secret safe. A specialized form of cosmetic tattooing, scar camouflage requires advanced training and expert technical skills. But client satisfaction is also dependant on the technician’s artistic talent.

If you try a new cosmetics brand and don’t like it, you can take it back. Foundation that doesn’t match your skin tone can be washed away. Lipstick that doesn’t flatter can be wiped off. Makeup mistakes are common and, fortunately, correctable. But when a technician makes a mistake while applying permanent makeup, it can’t be wiped or washed away. Your appearance is permanently altered, and your technician’s error is there for all to see.
No one in the permanent makeup business likes to talk about errors, but the popularity of permanent cosmetics has caused a proliferation of permanent makeup services offered by poorly trained or poorly skilled technicians. If you do not choose your permanent makeup technician wisely, you risk being unhappy with the results.
