Seif Sidky decided to create a new international scalp micropigmentation brand that only associates with the world's best SMP artists would be able to join, a brand that is distinguished for quality results, consistently. IHL was built as an integrity-driven company that nurtures new artists for the long term. The principle is to train and support the artists to be the perfectionists that they can be when taught correctly in an environment of positivity. The current status quo of hit-or-miss partially trained staff is not acceptable as this industry continues to grow. This problem is not unique or confined to Florida - it is prevalent around the world. But where there is a problem, there is an solution. To date the Boca Raton SMP Training Center has taught many students from across all 50 states and from 10 international countries. The Training Center was built to create a core of exceptional SMP artists with hand-on training by Seif's hand-selected staff. It is very important that you have the best in the world providing your SMP treatments. Don't settle for Second Best.
The name "International Hairlines" stems from our ability to accurately reproduce any type of hairline in a natural and undetectable manner. Whether it is a hard, sharp hairline, popular in the United States, or a softer, gradually receded hairline (more popular in Europe), widow's peaks and every shape in between, we have practiced and perfected it all - hairlines from all around the world. Since the hairline is literally in the forefront of scalp micropigmentation, we believe that if it lacks a natural appearance, the results will not look on par with our standards, so that is why we take great pride in our hairlines.
Aside from the hairline, our artists also pay very close attention to key factors such as blending, matching, feathering, density-building, texturing, scar concealment, etc., in order to produce those undetectable natural results. Most practitioners have been trained to use one type of needle when performing scalp micropigmentation. Not the artists at South Florida International Hairlines! We are trained to use different types of needles in order to achieve the optimal results. Not every skin type can be treated by one needle exclusively. The art and the experience rests in being able to determine when and where to utilize the many tools available at our artists' disposal.

Hi my name is Jerod Schoonmaker
"My purpose in this world is to help men become better versions of themselves through overcoming insecurities and lack of confidence related to hair loss."
It's been my experience that there are few things more damaging and devastating to a guy's confidence than hair loss. Whether it's thinning, balding, or receding hairlines... It s*cks! But unfortunately, the reality is that majority of us will experience some kind of hair loss or thinning at some point in our lives. More than half of men in their late twenties to mid fifties experience insecurities as their crown starts thinning or temples extending further and further upwards.
Unfortunately we are living in a society, where who you are - your identity - is closely related to how you look and present yourself. And your hair is a big part of that. So if you're like most men experiencing thinning or balding, you might feel that your confidence is being effected on a daily basis. That it's getting out of your control, because hair loss makes you feel subconscious and insecure.
I started loosing my hair at a pretty early age. At first I tried to cover up my bald spots with different hairstyles and by wearing hats. But as my hair got thinner and thinner it became increasingly difficult to disguise, and my receding hairline was difficult to mask.
So I started researching alternative solutions. Like most men, the first thing that came to mind was a hair transplant. But transplants are excessively expensive, especially since the result is neither guaranteed or permanent. So another transplant could be necessary later.
Then I researched hair loss reversal drugs, like hormone injections. But quickly discovered how hair loss reversal drugs affected the lives of men. Those pills and treatments come with a risk of severe side effects, like erectile dysfunction, loss of sex drive, loss of energy, and lack of motivation. Some of those side effects are irreversible and can go on even after you stop taking the pills or getting the injections.
As I am dedicated to keeping a healthy lifestyle and taking care of my body, I didn't want to put chemicals into my system. Why would I risk my health, sex life and wellbeing for a fix with no guarantee it would it solve my issues?
I asked myself: Is a few extra strands of hair worth those consequences?
Just as I was trying to come to terms with my balding head and looking much older than my birth certificate indicates, I discovered Scalp-Micropigmentation. SMP is the fastest growing solution to hair loss, because it comes at a much lower price, than transplants, taking pills or applying creams every single day. And it's the only treatment with a guaranteed result.
After not discovering any noteworthy side effects, and reading tons of personal experiences of men who had had success with this solution, I decided to try it myself...
To be completely honest: At first I was afraid I would get negative comments. That people would tell me it looked fake or that I looked ridiculous... But I didn't receive any negative remarks - I actually got compliments! People who don't know me, think it's my natural hair.
Getting a Scalp-Micropigmentation has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. It changed my life for the better, making me more happy and confident than I had been for years.
"I suddenly felt free. I felt less controlled by my look. I didn't have to worry about how people perceived me anymore."
And because I believe SMP has brought me to where I am at today; freed of my insecurities, and made me much more confident as a man. I decided to try to make this long term sustainable solution available to as many men as possible.
I believe that all men have the right to be comfortable in themselves and have the self-esteem to achieve what they want from life. So if we can help with that through providing a safe and permanent solution to recreate receding hairlines and restore the appearance of a full set of hair, my mission is accomplished!

Seif has quickly become one of the most recognized and well-respected SMP artists in Florida. A consummate perfectionist, his innate attention to detail, combined with his passion for helping people feel their best has helped him produce some outstanding scalp micropigmentation work on clients from all walks of life and of different backgrounds. While with Scalp Aesthetics in past years, Seif received awards for the artist who produces the "Best Natural Hairline" as well as the "Best Business" award, and in the process has become one of the busiest and most successful artists in the world.
He has since shifted his focus away from his own thriving clinic, and is now concentrating on training, mentoring, and helping other artists develop the skills necessary to make it in this industry. And this is why he is naturally a good fit for South Florida International Hairlines and vice-versa. Seif is in charge of mentoring the locations in South Florida as well as Cairo, Egypt, from where he originates. He also runs his training center (SMP Training Center - Florida) and also occasionally treats some clients, more specifically those who need SMP repair work, Alopecia patients and other certain challenges. He is one of the most sought-after artists for repairing bad SMP procedures.
Seif strongly believes in continuous education and training, and that is why he is constantly studying and learning how to further improve the craft of SMP, for himself and for his students and mentees. He is dedicated to doing his part in ensuring this industry maintains very high standards and not succumb to unscrupulous people taking advantage of the lack of regulation, and of potential clients in the process, thereby tarnishing what others have worked so hard to accomplish.
Every client that is treated by North Carolina International Hairlines will not leave the final session of treatment without being 100% satisfied - guaranteed! Stellar reviews for all our artists is just the tip of the iceberg. From consultation to the final treatment, we pledge to always treat our clients with courtesy and respect in a clean, comfortable, non-pretentious, and safe environment.
