If you have natural hair, you are probably familiar with frontal closure. The demand for these hairpieces has also increased, with an increasing number of women rocking their natural hair. What exactly is a frontal closure, how can it help you style your hair, and where can you find the best ones? This blog will answer all such queries.
What is a frontal closure?
A frontal closure wig is a wig with the hairline and part already in the frontal region of the wig. A lace frontal closure wig is usually attached to a cap rather than to the head. The wig can be adjusted to fit snugly against the scalp using the adjustable tabs. Many wigs have a wire running through the part and hairline, and the adjustable tabs are beneath the wig. Adjusting the tabs is much like adjusting the fit of a baseball cap. A difference between a wig with a frontal closure and a regular full wig is that the closure can be changed to match any style. The closure may also be made of hair, so it looks more realistic.
Types of Frontal Closures
There are three different types of frontal closures wigs:
1. The most common is a lace wig. It is made with a soft lace material on the base of the wig.
2. The next type of frontal closure wig is the mono top. A mono top is made with a single hair strand attached to a net base.
3. Finally is a skin top. A skin top is made of two to three flat rows of hair attached to a base made of netting. This type of wig is the least secure of all the frontal closure wigs.
The front hairline closure is usually used to maintain the hairline. The completed front closure, which is stitched to the wig, can be flat, side parting, or even left front, depending on the size of the hairline and the client’s preference. Some wig cap is designed to be removable so the user can wear the wig without the front hairline. For example, a Cap Size Adjustable Closure (CSAC) is made to fit all sizes of wig caps and can be secured by Velcro or even snaps. An alternative method is to wear a combination of human hair and lace closure. A lace closure is perfect for those who want to create a natural hairline in their wig.
Frontal Closure vs. Lace Closure
Here are the differences between lace closure and frontal closure hair extensions.
- Frontal Closure: This closure is done on a single weft (or strip). This quick and easy installation process is essentially similar to adding a single clip-in extension.
- Lace Closure: In this type of closure, double thickness of hair is sewn all around the lace’s perimeter, makings it more natural. This type of closure is generally wider than frontal and, hence, more secure.
- Lace Closure: Closures are applied with a more natural appearance and secure attachment. They are similar to the clip-in hair extension. Because the attachment width is more than frontal closures, you will have more options for the parting.
- Lace Closure: This is a more secure attachment and opens up more styling options.
- Lace Closure: In this type of closure, double thickness of hair is sewn all around the lace’s perimeter, makings it more natural.
Wearing a wig can be a great way to feel more confident if you go through chemotherapy, surgery, or any other medical treatment that causes hair loss. But, it’s important to find the right wig, like a body wave closure wig. There are two main types of wigs: lace wigs and frontal wigs. Lace wigs are attached to your hairline and extended further down.
