The difference between HD Front closures and HD Frontal Lace
You may be a seasoned user of lace closures and frontals, or maybe you've simply heard the terms and are curious to try one for yourself. In this blog, we'll break down the benefits of both and how they can work for your specific needs.
Firstly, the basics: Both lace frontals and closures are used to help blend hair extensions with the hairline to prevent your natural hair or scalp being revealed. They close off the installation of hair extensions and help to keep the hair strands in place whilst helping the hair extensions look natural.
However, frontals and closures both work differently and can serve very different purposes.
What is a Lace Frontal?
A frontal is a half wig that is worn from ear to ear(13 inches) and reaches back to the peak of your head (4 inches). It can be sewed into hair bundles, or used to cover thinning hairlines in a natural-looking way.
The great thing about frontals is their versatility. They can be parted in a myriad of ways or brushed back and styled in limitless up-do's.
Lace frontals offer an elevated look, and when handles by a seasoned stylist they offer a flawlessly realistic look. But, they can be tricky to maintain and may require tweezing, tinting, plucking or trimming before use. Some require glue to be fully secure and because of this, I advise booking an appointment with a professional to have yours installed and maintained to the highest level.
What is a Lace Closure?
Lace closures are the pièce de résistance. They help close off your wig or weave in a horseshoe shape usually with a width and length of 4x4 inches, leaving your edges exposed and unstrained.
Lace closures are extremely popular, and often the entry point for wig and full weave wearers because of their low maintenance. Unlike lace frontals, a lace closure hairpiece doesn't require a lot of experience in order to look good and maintained. The most work you ever need to do on a lace closure is washing, conditioning, and styling - all best handled by a professional.
Lace frontals are ideal if you're lusting for an almost imperceptible finish to your look. But if you're a low maintenance lady who likes her glamour effortless, I advise opting for a lace closure. What ever you decide, you can shop here with assurance that your lace closure or frontal is of the highest quality, with undetectable lace and unmatched craftmanship.
