SMP business

From Consultation to application

A major part of the SMP business is client consultation and customer acquisition.

From initial contact to the client consultation I will walk you through the numerous scenarios, questions and queries one faces on a daily basis as an SMP provider.

Training with Advanced Scalp is a hands-on immersive experience with a small highly focused student to teacher ratio. I take great pride in ensuring all my students are educated to the highest possible industry standards. 

Advanced Scalp’s approach to training is designed with one word in mind “practicality”. I know what it takes to become a well-rounded SMP artist and how to operate a successful, organized, clean practice. With that in mind I’ve broken down the entire course into relevant, formulated modules both practical and theory. From consultation to application I’ve identified key areas in training, which are vital for successful SMP results and career longevity.

Advanced Scalp’s

However there’s more to running a successful SMP business than just being a talented technician.

Drawing from my own hands on experience of running a busy customer driven SMP clinic I bring a valuable entrepreneurial perspective to the course. Which encourages and guides students to explore the business aspect of SMP whilst tying together all the necessary practical components.
