In recent years, the city of Manchester has become a centre of hair tattooing excellence. Although Birmingham may have been the birthplace of modern scalp micropigmentation, and London attracts more international clients than any other city in the world, Manchester has become a powerhouse in its own right, and now plays host to some of the world’s very best hair tattoo technicians.
There is a total of three scalp micropigmentation clinics in Manchester that we are happy to recommend:
- MCR Academy
- Vinci Hair Clinic
- Advanced SMP
Vinci Hair Clinic is one of the UK’s largest providers with multiple locations. Vinci is in Piccadilly not far from the train station. MCR Academy and Advanced SMP are both located on Fountain Street just a couple of hundred yards from the Arndale Centre.
Who travels to Manchester for treatment?
Several hundred people every year get scalp micropigmentation in Manchester, and they travel from far and wide. Obviously those in the surrounding areas of rural Cheshire and Lancashire are likely to choose a Manchester clinic purely for convenience. In addition, many travel from Sale, Stockport, Bury or Bolton, or even from Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield, and some from even further. For example, a complete lack of clinics in Cumbria, Tyneside and even Northern Ireland encourages many people to make the journey to Manchester.
Why do they make the journey? Because the city enjoys world class transport links and is therefore easily accessible, plus the range of quality hair tattoo clinics available, is unrivalled outside of London.
Getting to Manchester
The M60 outer ring road connects Manchester to the motorway network, so getting to the city centre by car is easy, although traffic in the city can get very heavy during peak times.
Many clients prefer to leave the car at home and travel by train. The nearest station is Oxford Road, accessible by light rail from all other Manchester stations. Manchester Airport is very well facilitated, and offers easy travel into the city centre. Finally, clients travelling from Northern Ireland may consider taking the ferry. The obvious route is from Belfast to Liverpool, but given the extra time and additional cost, most Northern Irish clients choose to fly into Manchester.
