If there’s one thing wig-wearers can agree on, it’s this—not all lace is created equally. With the exception of transparent or HD lace wigs, most units come with lace that can appear ashy and unnatural, especially on darker skin tones. The contrasting color of lace to your natural skin tone can easily make the grids on your lace front visible. Ultimately, this type of wig should mimic the look of a natural scalp, so having the best lace tint spray is pretty important.
While applying makeup such as foundation, concealers, and powders is common practice for blending lace wigs, it can also get messy. Personally, I’ve found that makeup gets everywhere, especially if you remove your wigs daily. Also, makeup on lace tends to cake up and sometimes appear a bit orange and unnatural. Instead of applying makeup to conceal your lace, tint spray may be a better option.
In the simplest terms, lace tint spray is a pigmented spray solution meant to make your lace wig blend in with your skin tone. Just spray (as many layers as you need), let it air dry, and slay the day. Here’s a shortlist of options that will (happily) lead to a 404 error—lace not found.
