There've been a number of queries about hair colours for full lace wigs so we thought we'd put together a quick fire page to briefly outline the colour options.
The good thing about hair you wear is that if something doesn’t work, you can remove it and move on, but lace wigs aren't ten a penny so it's better to get the choice right first time.
One way to make sure you have the best chance of making sure the hair colour of the wigs, weaves or extensions you choose suit you, then check out the hair colour and skin tone guide which outlines the most complementary colours for each skin tone as well as few more hair colour charts for you to peruse.

"Do Wigs Come In Highlighted Colours?"
You can choose to have a Peruke with or without highlights. When you purchase your wig (whether through us or anyone else) each wig description will indicated the highlight colour option.
You’ll choose the main colour of the wig, say colour 1 (jet black) – this will be the most prominent colour of your lace wig. You’ll then choose the second and third colour options to highlight say 2 and 3 (dark brown and slightly lighter brown).
You can choose to have only one highlight option or not at all and usually doesn’t this affect the price of lace wigs; more than two highlight colours will usually mean an additional charge. So think carefully before you purchase and know exactly what it is you’re after.
"Do full lace wigs come in fancy colours?"
They certainly do and for those who aren't sure what is meant by the word "fancy" we'll explain:
Fancy colours for hair you wear are basically colours that aren’t part of the spectrum of colours in the charts above… we’re talking T-colours, greens, dip-dye, blues, purples, ombre, gold, tricolours, reds, pastels, pink, silver, grey and the like.
When choosing the length of your fancy colour lace wig, it might be helpful to think about the shade of the colour, whether it's a single solid colour, a T-colour or a dip-dye look.
If you're choosing a dip-dye look, then it's important to know the length of the root colour, as how you look will depend on which hair colour (root or body) frames your face.
Dyeing and washing full lace wigs
When you buy coloured human hair wigs that have already been processed to achieve a texture and colour, ideally you shouldn't really dye your lace wig again (unless you've bought an lace wig that hasn't been dyed) as it’ll shorten the lifespan of the wig as the hair will become damaged.... speaking of dyes and human hair wigs...
When and how you wash human hair coloured lace wigs will affect the rate at which the colour fades so gentler shampoos designed for coloured hair are better in these instances (obviously this doesn't apply to synthetic lace wigs).
That's the quick fire Q&A on colours for full lace wigs done and done.
