How to Choose Your Own Lace
About the lace material:
Lace materials are classified into French lace and Swiss lace. The advantages of French lace are more durable and can be long lasting. But on the other hand, it doesn’t look as natural as the Swiss lace, because the material is thicker and hard wearing. So this’s why most people wouldn’t choose it but Swiss lace.
For Swiss lace, it’s thinner material that would look more invisible, also it's stretchable and easy to blend better with the skin tone. That’s why most lace products are made of swiss lace.
3 types of lace are mainly used in the hair market: Regular Swiss Lace, Transparent Lace and HD lace.
Regular Swiss Lace:
There are plenty of lace colors but only 3 types are mostly used: light, medium and dark brown. Almost all the lace products are made of regular Swiss lace in the past few years before transparent and HD lace come out to the market. It’s a little thick but more durable and not easy to rip off. Many people will prefer to choose the lace color according to their skin tone. The price is much lower HD lace as well.
It’s regular lace in transparent color, but thin and more stretchable. We often recommend the transparent lace to women with light skin tones. And most vendor will use this lace color on #613 lace wig. But the transparent color lace is easy to rip off can melt into any skin tone after bleached the hair knots and glue down the hairline. Though the price is almost the same with regular Swiss lace.
HD stands for "high definition". HD lace is a royal lace material that used to be called Swiss lace, the most transparent and thinnest, which is invisible when applied to the scalp. You don’t have to add extra makeup or bleach to adapt to your skin tone. This ensures that the wig-wearer can have an exposed hairline, which looks very natural and renders the lace along the hairline highly undetectable. Although HD lace is much expensive than the other types of lace but also durable and worth it.

How to color the lace to match your scalp
1. Makeup Foundation

Choose the foundation which is closets to your real scalp, and then just brush it to your lace. Plus, Makeup spray is also a wonderful choice with this method. You can spray some of them and that it can dry about 2~3 mins. Or you can just let it dry naturally which may take about 30 mins.
2. Dying Lace
