Prince William used in fake hair tattoo advert
Hair tattooing

Hair tattooing procedure

London-based hair loss experts, Vinci Hair Clinic, have completely flouted strict rules governing the use of Royal Family photos in advertising by using a photo-shopped picture of Prince William with a scalp tattoo on his bald patch in a promotional campaign. The tabloids recently reported on this direct infringement to the wholesale ban on photos of the Royals which should only be used with express permission.

Although the advert may very well land the Harley Street hair business in serious trouble with watchdogs, the Advertising Standards Authority and Director General of Fair Trading, Vinci’s social media sponsored posts featuring the Duke of Cambridge are proving popular with followers. It seems that fans ‘like’ how Prince William looks with his fake tattoo. It remains to be seen whether Prince William will be tempted by a real hair tattoo after seeing Vinci’s mocked-up images of himself.

Hair tattooing is claimed to be a pain-free procedure. Unlike other tattoos, it doesn’t penetrate as deeply. The non-surgical technique works by drawing tiny particles of pigment on the scalp to resemble short hair as a solution to hair loss.

As hairdressing claims experts, we’d urge caution if you’re considering the same treatment. It’s a highly specialised process and should only be undertaken by trained practitioners in this field. Research thoroughly. Commit carefully.
