Hair For Good

With Romina Raso from Saloon SMP

Bringing both the sass and the style of Melbourne to the region, Romina is quietly revolutionising a niche area of the beauty industry here in the Whitsundays by using the art of Scalp Micropigmentation. Giving renewed confidence and freedom to her clients, this ground-breaking procedure provides practical and affordable solutions for people living with patterned baldness, thinning or alopecia. One of the only fully qualified SMP Practitioners in the wider region, clients are flocking to Romina for this exciting new way to mimic hair re-growth.

Simple, relatively pain-free and completely effective Saloon SMP works by using a similar technique to tattooing to replicate the hair follicles on your scalp. Romina will exactly colour-match the pigment with your hair colour and skin tone and tattoo life-like looking hair follicles on your scalp reducing the contrast between visible scalp and missing hair follicles. It is also an effective unisex hair loss solution for those who are thinning and wanting thicker looking hair.  

“It’s non-surgical, non-invasive, and it has guaranteed results,” explained Romina.

“SMP uses organic pigments designed specifically for this treatment making it safe for the scalp. The treatment will give instant results after your first treatment and can last up to 10 years.”

Noticing a gap in the market for this service while managing a group of barber shops and running a barbering academy in Melbourne, Romina met a lot of men and women who had experienced distressing failed attempts at finding solutions for their receding hairlines and thinning hair.

“I met many people who had failed and expensive hair transplants and Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments, some left with obvious scars, or found the procedures painful and invasive. This is why I love SMP so much and strongly endorse people to learn more about it as a hair loss solution – it’s affordable, pain-free, instant, and low maintenance. Because, truth is, hair takes a long time to grow!”

Romina can guide you through the whole process to make sure SMP is the right solution for you. She also has the technology to create a visual example of what you would like with the SMP hair procedure so you can view a real-life example before committing. Dedicated to helping people through her business, she loves witnessing first-hand how SMP can completely change someone’s life - restoring confidence, igniting vigour and generating a new spark.

Romina moved to the Whitsundays with her partner last year, looking for a new and warmer place to call home. The pair had been looking to escape the city and move to a beautiful coastal town for some time, so they started their search and by chance, came across Airlie Beach, and as they say, the rest is history.

Since then, the couple have been installing a relaxing home clinic for Romina’s business and even accommodation for her interstate clients who might like to stay while getting an SMP treatment. In her own time, Romina loves heading down and participating in the Twilight Sailing Races each Wednesday at the Whitsunday Sailing Club.

Fun to be around, passionate about her trade and an experienced practitioner, Romina is welcoming to all and happy to offer solutions for any of your hair re-growth needs.
