I've bought a synthetic wig from my local bss. The cap fits great and it looks good except the hair texture which looks really unnatural and barbie-esque.
I then decided to purchase a human hair lace front wig from www.bargainlacewigs.co.uk
The hair texture is great but I have one big problem, the lace is a little too light for my complexion and even though I have cut it, it still shows slightly as it is too light and I can't cut it any further as the hair will come out.Cry
I am a little darker than Kelly Rowland's color and the lace is medium brown.
Any ideas on how to remedy this problem?

I've tried the foundation but it doesn't hide the lace very well, just makes it look a but orangeyConfused
I've ordered a fabric pen now, hopefully that'll do the trick...

Powder foundation has worked for me in the past.

You can also verrrrry carefully dip the edge of the lace in Rit dye, or take a Q-tip and go along the edges.  Make sure you test the Rit dye color on a white paper towel first to make sure that the color is a good match.

Thanks for your help ladies. I looked everywhere for this fabric pen and themn found it at the very site which I purchased the lace wig - bargainlacewigs.co.ukLOL They do some great units, would definitely recommend, looks very natural and the texture feels nice.
Now I need to thin out the front to make it look just a little more natural...
