How To Hightlight a Human Hair Wig

There are a myriad of wigs to choose from out there but what if you can’t find your perfect color blended wig?

Many wig wearers have experienced this at one point or another and are left stuck and wondering what their options are. Please note that if you have a synthetic wig, you cannot change the color of your hair. If you have a human hair wig, there are a few things you can do.

Tip #1: We do not recommend bleaching your wig. If your wig is dark and you would like highlights, we would suggest you visit your local stylist to add the highlights. Human hair wigs are generally very processed so another process will simply minimize the wear.

Tip #2: If you want to customize your own highlights or color blends, we suggest that you get a wig in the lightest highlight color you areĀ  looking for. Comb in a semi-permanent hair color to create the highlights without the damage. For added “depth”, try combing in 2 or more separate colors.

Tip #3: If you don’t like it, wash and try again! Since the color will wash out, let the wig soak for a longer period of time when washing and your “canvas” will be ready all over again!

Tip #4: Perfect your highlighting method. Once you find the perfect color blends and amount of highlights, you can continue to experiment with other colors, more or less highlights, etc. The sky is the limit!

Tip #5: When coloring a lace wig, be sure not to get the color on the lace, especially if the color is very dark or a colored “rinse”. The last thing you need is a beautiful lace wig with a burgundy tinted lace.

Tip #6: If you have a human hair blended wig, you should not attempt to color it. They synthetic hair will not take well with chemicals and even a rinse will not properly “stain” the hair.
