Review Closure and Frontal from Beautiful Hair Store
Having beautiful hair makes a person feel confident. If you notice, people who have thinning hair or show signs of balding are a little shy and very self-conscious.
This is because our hair is a huge part of our image and when we feel our image is less than perfect, we withdraw into ourselves.
More than anything else, our hair is a main feature that can really boost a person’s confidence. Knowing how you look can set the tone for the day and make you confident to face anything head on.
But not all of us have great genes and luxurious thick hair.
If you are looking to boost your look and upgrade it from being simply average to absolutely fabulous, you should try hair extension closures. They give your look the extra edge you need to feel absolutely confident and ready to take on the world. There are several options for hair extension closures that you can choose from to achieve the look that you desire.
What is a lace closure?
A closure is a hairpiece which can either have a durable lace or a silk mesh base. It is normally 4 inches in length and 4 inches wide (4”x4”). The hair used in a closure is 100% virgin human hair which is individually attached to a lace type material to offer a versatile parting for the user. The great thing about using a closure is that there are no glues or adhesives required to apply the closure to your own hair.
Closures also help in giving the illusion of a natural hairline or parting and this easy installation means you don’t have to go through the hassle of blending the hair extensions and your own natural hair.
Closures are durable and can be re-used provided proper care and maintenance is given to them. A closure could be the vital element to your sew-in to ensure that no hair gets left out. This also protects your hair form any styling damage that may occur when you are getting ready.
Closures are also great for people who feel that their hair is unmanageable.
The reasons for using closures could range from wearing a full weave or wig unit because it acts as a protective style.
If their natural hair does not match or blend with the hair extensions applied on their hair properly, they may also choose to wear closures.
What is a lace frontal?
A lace frontal is a half wig that runs from temple to temple hairline and are usually bonded in place. Due to the full temple to temple coverage, they cover a larger area and in combination with the replication of a natural hairline and parting, it offers users a more flexible hair styles to be tried out which would normally not be possible with a closure. A lace frontal on Beautiful Hair Store has lace frontals which are 13” x 4” with from 8” to 20” of hair.
How are lace closures and frontals different?
The biggest differences between the both are the materials and construction used for both. Even the application process vastly differs. A closure is generally used doe sew-in applications and if it is installed properly, it can give the wearer the appearance of having a natural scalp area while wearing a full eave. As they are placed in the horseshoe area at the top of a weave to close off a style, they are known as closures.
Closures tend to be made out of lace or silk mesh with a poly strip or a thin skin on the perimeter of the mesh for strength to make the bonding application easier. The natural mesh color gives the appearance of a natural scalp and this type of closure may require sealing of knots to keep the hair secure at the base.
In comparison, a lace frontal covers a larger area and will also need the knots to be sealed so that the hair is kept secure in the cap. Closures can be applied via bonding, use of clips or even by sewing the closure by hand. Some natural hair may be left out to conceal the stitches. A lace frontal can use the same procedures for fastening as a closure, but a natural hairline cannot be achieved if it stitched or clipped at the front. Most stylists sew down the back or use clips and use a bonding agent to glue the front hairline in place.
Unlike a closure, there is no natural hair that is left loose in a bonded lace frontal as the purpose is to create a natural hairline.
