The popular base in the market right now is called lace. It has two types, and we are here to help you understand them better! Read below if you want to learn more.
- Transparent Lace
Transparent lace is the standard lace used which appears transparent, hence its name. However, its ‘transparency’ greatly depends on how the color of the lace matches your skin tone. Transparent lace has four regular colors: dark brown, medium brown, light brown and transparent.
Despite needing to match the lace color to your skin tone, transparent lace is comfortable to wear since it is thin enough and offers great breathability for your scalp. This also means that it is easier to thoroughly dry your hair!
- HD Lace
When you see the word ‘HD’, it usually means ‘high definition.’ You thought it’s only for movies, but HD also applies to lace! It is called HD since it gives the most natural look of all laces. Once applied on your scalp, it is almost invisible because it’s sooooo thin! With an HD lace, you won’t need to match the lace color to your skin tone anymore!
Since it is thinner compared to transparent lace, it is far breathable to wear BUT this may mean that it can easily tear with rough handling. So, make sure you are gentle with this lace so it can last you for months! Be aware though that this type of lace is quite expensive than others since creating it is not an easy feat.
Whatever type of lace you choose, be mindful of what fits your lifestyle and budget best. Both transparent and HD lace are available in our stores so go ahead and SHOP NOW. Here at Impression Perfect Hair, we are here to help make your perfect ready for that first impression.
