When it comes to wearing sew in hair extensions, the goal should always be to obtain a natural-like appearance. No one deliberately wants their weave to be easily detected. Many installations require leaving parts of the front of your hair to cover tracks. But with this comes the hassle of blending your own hair texture with that of the virgin extensions.
Many times in order to be successful in this blending process, heat constantly has to be applied resulting in damage to your natural hair. Thanks to closures and frontals we can now cover the front of the hair where you would have your leave out and still have the appearance of a natural hairline.
Lace Closure - Is an off circle shape of lace that has hair attached. It is usually pretty small and is around 4*4 in size. A closure can be used to place on the top of your braided hair in order to make your weave or sew-in look more natural. This allows you the option to have no real hair left out (leave out) when wearing a full head of weave. To have a full head sew-in with a closure you would want to purchase 3 or 4 bundles to complete a style.
Full Frontal - Is an ear to ear stretch of lace that has hair attached. It is larger than a closure and is around 14*4 in size. A full frontal will give your sew-in a natural look. Unlike a closure you can be more diverse and wear a middle, side, or three part style. There are so many different styles that can be done with a frontal like braids along the front of the head, twisties in the front, and much more. This allows you the option to have no leave out, while having beautiful baby hairs when wearing a full head of weave. To obtain a full sew-in you would need about 2 to 3 bundles with the full frontal to complete a style.
360 Frontal - Is a lace headband with hair attached to it. The 360 frontal recreates the complete hairline around the entire head. This frontal allows you to rock pretty much any hairstyle. With the 360 frontal, you no longer have to fear wearing the high ponytail that so many people love. You can pretty much wear any type of part in the front of the hair, along with being creative with the back. To do a full sew-in or weave, purchase with the 360 frontal you would need 2 to 3 bundles of hair.
Depending on your style of choice, a lace frontal may be more appealing than a closure or vice versa. If you like to pull your hair back then a lace frontal will be best for you. If you simply want to close your install with a natural looking scalp then a lace closure will be the best solution for you.
Either way, they both will enhance your install by giving it the natural look that we all go for!
