Is there a good way to make a more pronounced part on a lighter unit? I am applying a #6 for someone and the part does not look like I want it to. All the tips I use on my 1b and my dark skin don't look the same as it does on this much lighter person. Any tips ladies?

Just a stab of something you may want to consider and try.  Sometimes we take for granted that ppl are doing all the things that we consider routine.

A wig cap color change to darker may help. Or SH spray at the part.

If you are using a wig cap, the wig cap should be used to make it more pronounced with a tad of oundation powder.  Or use the bandaid technique on the unit at the part.

I think you should use a lighter stocking cap. 
 
My unit is about the same color, between #4 and 6 and my skin tone is about the same like yours.  When I first got my unit, I used a bright tan stocking cap, it made my scalp toooo light.  I then bought a darker one but the scalp was still too light.  With my skin tone I just use a black stocking cap and the scalp now looks very realistic.  Since she is light skin, try a lighter stocking cap.

Oh and we only used sally hansen. I thought the tape would be best too but she did not have any foundation. We are going to reapply on Sunday so that I can make the unit a little darker for her since she does not like how light it is ( I think it is fine) I will set it on the purple flex rods then too so the curls are more defined and last longer. What color do you think I should use to color? I want to use the original color as the base and just use some darker highlights to tone it down a notch.
