 frontal vs closure

Before 2018,A FRONTAL refers to a hairpiece that has a strip of material which runs from ear to ear.

It usually stretches 13 inches and goes 4 inches back, making a half-wig of sorts.

It’s typically sewn onto bundles (usually approximately 2-3 bundles of hair),

but you can also use it to make a full wig.

A lace CLOSURE is similar to a lace front in that hair is attached to lace to create the illusion of a scalp,

but it is much smaller and has more limitations when it comes to styling.

Instead of having a strip of scalp-like material that runs from ear to ear,

the closure is typically a 4×4-inch patch placed on the middle, front portion of the hairpiece.

Closures and frontals both include a piece of lace and hair is sewn into the base of the wig.

Closures and frontals are go-to styles because they let you part your hair in several ways and have a natural-looking hairline.

This piece of material gives the illusion of your natural scalp,

The addition of baby hair around the edges make it look even more natural.

Because frontals are so versatile and include more material, they do tend to be pricier than closures.

13×4 lace frontal is like a half wig piece.

With this hair piece, you’re not limited to the number of ways you can part or style your hair.

Lace closure typically are 4×4 inches and sit either perfectly in the middle of the crown

or can be shifted slightly to the side to achieve a side part look.

On the other hand, a lace frontal lays along the hairline across the front of the head, from ear to ear.

because Much more versatility in styling!easier for beginners.

4×4 lace closure — I prefer to keep it to the middle because it looks odd as a side part (imo).

5×5 lace closure  — tends to look smoother at the top, after styling whereas 4×4 apparently looks bulky and doesn’t sit as flat compared to 5×5.

and if you have a larger forehead you’ll do either 5×5.

6×6 lace closure — Having a style that flows will allow you to feel more comfortable and confident,

You can do different partings, 6×6 is the best to get a side part & middle.

7×7 lace closure– Such a big inspiration and help when it comes to lace frontals,

but for beginners,this is the hardest closure to stop from bulging.

13×4 lace frontal — For those having very thin hair definitely needs a whole frontal.

If  you can not sit in front of a mirror and meticulously place and style a frontal,

then 5×5 is your best choice.
