What's the difference between HD and Transparent Lace?


Hey Babe! I am sure by the time you are reading this you have heard of HD lace and Transparent lace. If not, you have landed on the right blog to guide you when it comes to lace for hair extensions!

I get so many questions about lace and the main two I get are what the difference between HD and transparent lace or is there a difference at all.

Either way, both of these lace have the hair industry in a secure chokehold so lets jump right into it.

What is HD Lace?

HD (high definition) but also known as film lace that has been around for years. It is an ulta-thin lace that when installed properly, can be undetectable and mimic your natural scalp. It is lightweight, breathable, and blends seamlessly into skin that it looks like the hair is growing from your scalp. 

What is Transparent lace?

First let me start off by saying transparent is a color not a type of lace. Most lace, transparent included is made of swiss lace. It shares some similarities to HD lace but you can still tell the difference between the two. Transparent lace is slightly thicker more durable and less expensive than HD lace. BUT it still can give a seamless melt down into the skin when installed right.

So, which lace is right for you?

Babe, it depends! And there are no right or wrong answers to this because it is all about preference. 

Choose HD lace if: you want an ultra-thin and undetectable natural look

Choose Transparent lace if: you want durability, plan on manipulating your hairstyle frequently, and budget friendly

Bonus tips when choosing your lace: consider skin tone and desire wear time. And always always always purchase from a reputable hair company like myself!

Babes, always remember, there's no one-size-fits-all answer! Experiment with different lace types to find what works best for you.
