Should You Wear a lace closure or Lace Front?


Both lace frontals and lace closure hair pieces help to complete your look and are great for styling your wigs, weaves, and natural hair extensions. However, making the best choice for which option to go for can sometimes be a tough nut to crack.

Truth is, there are pros and cons to both.

One way to identify frontals is that they are used to recreate the hairline from ear to ear while closures are used to recreate the natural parting of the hairline.Usually, it is combined with hair weaves.

Lace Frontal Pros

lace frontal can be helpful for anyone looking to use the hair as a protective style, since you're able to cornrow your natural hair underneath and use the piece for full coverage. Another plus that they give you the ability to completely switch up your hairstyle, since they sit right near the hairline. Depending on the quality of the wig, they can be parted in different areas and it's often difficult to tell that you're wearing a wig at all. At first installation of lace frontal wigs, it requires a lot of tweaking to achieve the natural look it has. You will need to do things like bleaching the knots of the wig, tweezing, tinting, plucking or trimming baby hairs and installing your wig correctly so you can achieve a realistic hairline.

Lace Frontal Cons

While the wig itself offers a lot of pros, depending on how it's applied, it can cause damage to your hairline. Sew-in lace frontal are usually installed using glue or lace tape. They last between 2 to 4 weeks without needing a retouch. The longer period of time your lace frontals have to stay installed can make it irritate your skin and severely damage your hairline or break off your edges.


Lace Closure Pros

Lace closure offers more versatility to your hair and often give a more natural-looking finish. You also have the freedom to style your edges however you'd like (Free part closure,Middle part closure,Three-part closure). Lace closure are hairpieces where hair strands are tied on a beige or dark brown lace. Remy lace closures are a few inches wide and they are applied where the hair would have been left to give a natural look on heads that have wigs on.

Lace Closure Cons

Your hair can't be pulled back into a ponytail using a lace closure, however, this is not the case with the lace frontal wigs which lets you pull your hair back into a simple ponytail and style it in multiple ways. Frontals tend to fit in snugly when you wear them, unlike closures. Having no knowledge of your head size or not measuring it accurately will leave you with a lace closure wig that doesn't fit perfectly.


Because of the need to achieve a more realistic natural look, lace frontals are more expensive to buy than lace closures.
