Coloring Your Lace Closure

Since the 6x6 lace closures are made of 100% human hair, you can color them just like your natural hair.

Remember that virgin hair colors up to a honey blonde, while raw hair can go full bleach blonde.

Ladies, feel free to contact a professional hair stylist if you are not the best at coloring hair.

To color your 6x6 lace closures, you’ll need:

  • Gloves
  • Hair Clips
  • Conditioner
  • Hair Dye Pins
  • Dye Brush

Step 1: Pin Down the Lace Closure

To ensure the dye doesn’t penetrate the lace closure, get a cork mannequin and tie a plastic bag around it. Secure the 6x6 lace closure to the mannequin using a push pin.

Step 2: Add Conditioner

Use a generous amount of Conditioner on the lace closure, starting from the top and applying it to the entire lace without getting it on the hair.

Step 3: Dye

Turn the closure over and pin it down again. Please wear your gloves and begin parting the hair and holding it down with clips.

Using the dye brush, start putting the dye on the hair, from the roots to the ends. Be careful not to get the dye on the lace.

Step 4: Comb

Once the color is applied, comb through the dye to ensure it coats every strand of hair.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 3 and 4

Continue dyeing and combing.

Step 6: Process Color for 1 Hour

Leave the hair dye on for one hour or what the color manufacturer recommends.

Step 7: Rinse

Rinse the dye off at a cool temperature and rinse it well until the water runs clear and no dye remains. Ta-da! You have now successfully colored your 6x6 lace closure!

Cutting Your Closure Hair

Tools you’ll need to cut your 6x6 lace closure:

Step 1:

Prep and detangle your lace closure. Carefully detangle your lace closure, smooth the hair out, and ensure that you do not pull and tug too hard. Work from the ends to the roots to minimize snagging or stress on the hair fibers.

Step 2:

Position the lace closure. Pin the lace closure down on a mannequin head to mimic the shape of the head or on your head. This helps you achieve a symmetrical cut with proper alignment and minimizes the risk of an uneven haircut.

Step 3:

Pluck before you cut. Plucking the hairline of the lace closure can help you achieve a more natural and seamless look. Carefully remove some of the hair around the hairline using your tweezer to mimic the hair density of a natural hairline.

Step 4:

Draw cutting lines. Draw precise lines on places you want to trim using a light-colored makeup pencil. This will serve as a guide and visual representation for your cutting and help you achieve a natural hairline.

Step 5:

Start cutting. If you want to trim the hair extension on your lace closure or add a few layers, you can use any familiar haircut technique.

Step 6:

Cut the lace.

Once you have achieved your customized look, it is time to cut the excess lace off. Start by making minor cuts using your scissors and holding the lace taut. Make sure to cut below your cutting lines.

Avoid cutting straight lines along the hair and go for a more wavy and uneven pattern, which helps you achieve a more natural and seamless hairline.
