Lace Closures for Hair Weaves: Features Every Wearer Should Consider

The type of closure you choose for your hair weave or extension can radically alter your appearance. Generally speaking, most hair extensions use either a lace closure or a lace frontal. How these items are used, what they are made of, and how they are put together are the essential factors in how a hair piece looks good on the wearer and matches her specific hairstyle. What are the differences between closures and lace frontals? Closures are used within sewn-in hair extensions and are normally positioned at the top of a weave to blend the styles effectively. Lace frontals, on the other hand, are usually bonded into place, and unlike closures, they can run from temple to temple (thereby covering the client's entire head and scalp). A lace frontal is customarily sealed off with knots to help keep the extensions in place.

Lace Closure: Protecting Natural Hair from Glam Weaves, Extensions

A hair extension or weave is the perfect way to transform your tiresome hairstyle into a more glamorous look. Some weaves of the inferior variety look comparatively unnatural that it becomes clear to those looking a little more closely that you’ve got a weave tucked on. Other weaves may be so flawless and impressive that it can be difficult for others to tell that the hair is not your own. You may not realize it, but one of the key features that make your weave look more natural lies in the type of closure that you use. What Is a Lace Closure? Lace closures are one of the most popular closure types available. A lace closure essentially has a netted base made of lace or silk, and meshed with individual threads of virgin hair. Before attaching to your crown, it is often recommended to have your natural hair braided in cornrows for a neater look.
