When coloring your Mrs. Rutter’s Virgin Hair Lace Closure, using permanent hair coloring takes very well to the hair since the hair is virgin hair. To color your lace closure, only focus on coloring the roots of your closure with your mascara wand first. This prevents you from spilling dye onto your lace because once you dye your roots with the mascara brush; you can safely color the rest of your hair without worrying about whether or not you covered the roots of your closure with dye. When you start coloring the ends of your hair, you will notice that the very ends of the hair appear to be just a little bit lighter than the hair nearest to the lace and that is because this is real virgin hair that hasn’t been colored! Natural real hair in its natural hair color always appears just slightly lighter on the ends than the rest of the hair because the ends are the oldest parts of hair.


After coloring your lace closure, rinse the dye from the hair by allowing warm water to run through the lace and then through the hair. Allowing water that ran through the hair to run through the lace will cause your lace to tint the color of your hair dye! After the water has ran clear or almost clear, shampoo the closure by washing the hair without pushing lather through your lace. Repeat this process until the water runs clear from your hair. After you have shampoo washed your closure, lightly squeeze the excess water from the hair and then apply a rinse condition or deep condition (your choice). After the closure has been conditioned and rinsed with warm water, lightly squeeze the excess water from the hair and then air dry the closure with its lace positioned off the ground. This ensures that as water runs down the hair while it’s drying, that the water will not run through your lace! The result will be a beautifully colored lace closure with the wave pattern of the hair still intact!

Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of over 14 haircare books and founder of
For this tutorial, I will be teaching you how to color a lace closure.
This lace closure is a Mrs. Rutter's virgin extensions lace closure from
The materials you will need to dye your lace closure will be one box of permanent hair color.
You will also need a dye brush, a bowl to store your hair dye, hair cutting scissors, 4 duckbill clips, a rat tail comb, a clean mascara wand, a pair of gloves and you will also need a trash bag.
So once you have all of your materials ready ,I will walk you step-by-step through how to dye a lace closure.
So now, here we are with our station prepared.
You want to make sure that you take your trash bag and you lay over the table or area you will be working on so that you don't stain your table or the surrounding floor.
After that, you want to make sure to prepare your hair dye so that you are ready to dye your closure and have all of your materials at hand ready.
The clips will help you to keep the hair separate as you are working on dying the roots and then also you want to make sure to have you scissors nearby just in case you needed help with developing your dye as you were able to cut open any packets that were necessary.
so first to begin I want to describe to you and tell you how important it is to make sure that you're dying this closure very very carefully.
now when you are dying a lace closure it's very important that no hair dye drips onto the lace for a number of reasons.
one is because it will actually stain the lace and when you are ready to install the lace it will look like you have a black scalp versus a brown or tan looking scalp.
So that is why it is very important when you're dying a lease closure, that you actually dye the roots first before you dye the rest of the hair.
This will give you your best control over making sure that you don't drip any dye onto your lace.
So to begin you want to make sure to part a very thin parting either on the left or right side of your lace closure so that you can begin dying.
As you part, you want to use your clips to keep the hair out of the way and you also want to make sure that you do not get hair dye on your clips as well.
Now that you've got a small section of hair separate from the rest of the closure, this is the most crucial part because you're only going to be dying the roots of your hair on your entire closure before you actually dye the rest of the hair so it's very important that you use this mascara wand to do so.
Using a brush usually has a lot of drippage from the actual dye because the bristles are so big is very easy to accidentally smear the lace.
So what you want to do, is put a little bit of dye on your mascara wand and you want to make sure there is no drippage because if there is any dye dripping from the bristles of your mascara wand it will drip onto your closure.
So you want to just smear off any excess dye inside of your bowl and then you want to begin dying the roots of the hair.
Now I suggest that you start about an eighth of an inch from the lace and then get a little close as you're comfortable but the goal is to just get as close to your roots as possible.
So as you can see, there's been a thin line of hair parted on the side you want to make your partings about this thin so that way, you are able to saturate the hair through without touching your lace.
So keep one of your hands which you should use your less dominant hand to hold down your lace closure and then you can use your dominant hand that's gonna guide you with your clean mascara wand to actually dye your hair.
So just use your dominant hand to push the hair over and then what you're going to do, is you are going to lightly stroked the roots of the hair without touching the closure.
so a little bit of distance with closure is perfectly fine if it helps you to get closer to the roots you can also roll the mascara wand and then roll it back so your mascara wand right on the hair root and then you are going to roll it in one direction and then roll it back to lift it back out.
Now if you drag a little bit of hair out with you that's perfectly fine because you have to dye all the hair anyway.
But your main focus is just to concentrate on the roots of the hair and then roll your mascara wand back out so that way, you're dying the roots and not the lace.
If you feel as though you didn't get close enough that's perfectly fine it's a lot better to go back in and get closer to dying the roots of the hair rather than getting too close and actually ruin your lace and remember, if you get any dye on your lace at all it's important that you immediately begin to wash it put shampoo on the spot rub it with your fingers and then rinse out the dye spot that you created.
So now if you are satisfied with the work that you've done with coloring the roots of your small section, you are going to part a new section of hair keep the hair clipped over and began doing the same thing.
You want to dye the inside of all of your partings without touching the lace.
When you finish dying the roots of all the hair, its best to go ahead and then color the rest with your brush because now you don't need to worry about the fact of the lace all you have to do is color the rest of the hair.
So after you dye the roots of your closure, you will notice that the roots are significantly different from the rest of the hair of course and to make sure that you're not staining your lace closure or causing any dye to drip, you want to occasionally check the lace as you are applying it with the mascara wand.
So after you are applying each section at a time, you want to make sure you flip your lace over and you want to check to see if you see any spots.
Now if you so happen to maybe get a few spots on the edge or maybe a few spots at the top through the lace that's okay just as long as it's not dye pressed into the lace and also if there's any lace that will be trimmed and you may have gotten the new tiny spots on it is perfectly fine.
You just want to make sure that when you are looking at the lace the section that will show your part does not have any dye within that area.
So now that we have dyed all of the roots of the hair, you will then begin a section working from the back towards the front chunks of hair and then begin dying the rest of the hair with the brush.
Now as you are adding hair dye to your hair, you want to make sure that you are not doing so at the root it's unnecessary.
You have already covered the root and the point of doing that first, is so that you don't accidentally get dye on the root of the actual closure.
So just start it the back section of some hair and begin dying the rest of the hair until you've covered all of your hair.
Always make sure to start on the ends and then work your way up toward the root.
Also when you're sectioning the hair, it does not have to be neat, you just want to grab a very thin section so that when you're applying dye, you can actually saturate the hair all the way through.
Also to make sure that you getting dye all the way through, it's a good tip to use your brush to open up your hair and then apply more hair dye.
After you finish dying all of your hair, you want to make sure that you allow the hair to process for the amount of time that your box instructions said to do so.
That's usually anywhere between half an hour to an hour after your hair is processed.
When you actually wash your hair, it's very important that you do not allow the dye to get in contact with the lace.
So as you are rinsing all the dye out of the hair, you want the water to run through the lace and then run down hair.
This will stop any dye from actually contacting the lace whatsoever, not you submerge your lace closure in water it will actually cause some of the dye to penetrate through the lace and tint the lace.
So when you rinsing, water has to flow to the lace and flow down the shaft of the hair so that way dye does not actually touch the lace.
After you rinse the dye out until it runs clear or almost clear, you will then proceed to shampoo and conditioner the hair as usual and then allow to air dry to finish the look.
As you can see this is the finish result of the closure once it has been dyed shampoo and air dried.
As you notice, the hair has dyed beautifully and consistently and also check out the lace closure!
There are no black dye spot on the closure whatsoever, that's why using my technique of the mascara wand is so important because you will literally just part your hair anywhere you want and then you will use a little bit of dye on your mascara want to dye the roots exactly where you please.
It's very important once again, that you don't stain in the lace because as you part this lace and wear it for your desired style.
You want to make sure that looks like your real scalp!
