Do you know how to choose the lace color for your wig? Many people are already very familiar with wigs, but they may still overlook the lace color of the wig.

Generally, there are four colors of lace for wigs.

Transparent color: It is suitable for all skin tones.

Medium brown: It matches natural or true brown skin tones.

Light Brown: It matches medium fair to light brown skin tones.

Dark Brown: It is recommended for people with darker skin tones.

How do I choose the lace color for my wig?

Now that you know what colors of lace for wigs are available, let's discuss how to choose the right color of lace for your wig.
First, you should choose a lace color that matches your scalp color. If you don't find a lace color that fits your skin color, or if you're not sure, then the safest option is clear lace. We recommend using HD lace because it is sheer.

What color is HD lace?

HD lace is sheer, undetectable, and can blend with any skin tone. However, if you are a wig beginner, then it may not be the best choice because it is very soft and fragile. You have to handle it carefully to prevent it from tearing. Also, HD lace is more expensive, so if you have a more than adequate budget, you may want to consider this.

How to make the color of the wig lace match your scalp?

No one can do everything right. If you buy a lace color that doesn't match your skin tone, here are some remedies to fix the problem. When you find that the wig lace color is lighter than your scalp, you can try the following methods to make the lace darker.

Method 1: Use foundation or concealer

This method is the easiest and quickest method, but it is only a temporary way to adjust the lace color. You will need a foundation or concealer to correct the color of the lace.

First, turn the wig inside out, then take the foundation or concealer and gently press the product onto the lace so that it blends with your skin tone. This may only take 2-3 minutes.

This method is best for people who wear lace wigs for short periods of time, as the color on the lace can become messy or disappear after 2-3 days.

Method 2: Lace blending spray/makeup spray

If you choose this method, it is best to wet the lace before using the lace tinting spray or makeup spray. Spray the colorant on the back of the lace and you can either let it air dry for a few minutes or you can also use a hair dryer to blow the back for a few seconds.

Method 3: Coloring the lace

Coloring the lace

Fill a basin with warm water while choosing a stain that will match your skin tone. You can use a few drops of dye or submerge the lace in the basin for about 10 minutes. During this process you have to keep checking the lace coloring level until it can reach the desired shade.

Note: Do not put the entire leave into the water.

Next, wash the lace in cold water to make sure the color has set. Also, during this step, you can use some shampoo and conditioner. After washing, you will also have to condition and let your hair dry naturally. This method is relatively more complicated, but the results are better and longer lasting.

Method 4: Use black tea bags

If you don't have dye, there is another method. It is also easy to color the lace.

Prepare 10 or 20 black tea bags and throw the tea bags into a pot of boiling water. Using a spoon or some utensil, gently press down on the tea bags to let the color come out.

Then, take the tea bags out and let it simmer for about 3 minutes as well. Then turn off the heat and let the water cool for about 2 minutes to get the right temperature.

Hold the end of the wig and dip the lace part into the tea. Colleagues take care to check the color of the lace to get the right color.

The final step is to wash the dark brown color of the lace wig with shampoo and conditioner. Make sure that you wash it very thoroughly to get rid of the tea smell.

How to lighten lace?

You can also lighten the color of lace when you find that it is darker than the color of your scalp, or if it takes too long to soak in when you dye your hair. Please check the following methods, they can be very useful.

Method 1: Bleach knot

Bleach knots can lighten the color of the lace. Bleach knots help to lighten the lace. Pour the bleach into a bowl and add the cream developer. Then stir until the consistency is thick enough not to bleed through the lace and bleach the hairs.

Turn the lace wig over and gently apply the bleach mixture to the lace, or cover the lace with bleach. Let the bleach sit for 15 minutes or more, then wash with cool water. Make sure you can use a neutralizing shampoo to stop it from over-processing.

Method 2: Purple shampoo

If the color of the lace is a little dark for you, you can wash it with a purple shampoo to fix it. The purple shampoo will even out the tone and remove the yellow coppery smell from your lace.
