Wig too BRIGHT!

Hi, I'm looking for a wig that is a dull green color (like olive tone). This one has the perfect style and its cheap, but it is too bright. Do you have any tips for how I could fix this?

Dont buy from them. All online reviews scream SCAM website. If you want a cheap wig, check ebay. You can check seller reviews super easily.

You can do a brown dye job over a wig to dull the color. And your second link doesnt work

^ it depend on what wig and dye method you use. But passically the dye onlt tints the wig daker with what ever shade you use to dye it with.

You could also take the method of getting a mouse blonde wig and dye it with green.

Fantasy Sheep as a close shade to hers.

If you contact them and ask what other style they have in this wig shade they will let you know.
