The Difference Between A Lace Frontal And Closure

The Difference Between A Lace Frontal And Closure

A closure is usually a 4×4″ piece, which around the temple to temple size and put in the middle, its 4 inches long and 4 inches wide, like a perfect square. 4 inches long and 4 inches wide for the most part of the closure, it’s 4×4″ piece. 4×4 Lace Closure is the standard.

Now you have two types of closures, you have lace closure, which is all lace, usually made with swiss lace, and then you have the silk base closure, which is made with silk. It is a matter of preference, a lot of people say the lace flatter, and I find that to be true sometimes. But it depends on the style you are doing. If I am doing like a curly hairstyle, I love a lace closure because you don’t really see a defined part. But if I am doing like a middle part, I want to be silk, because I want it to look as natural as possible.


What Is A Frontal

A frontal goes from ear to ear, so the entire front is covered. 13×4 Lace Frontal is the standard size. That is the difference between a closure and a frontal. And then with the frontal, there are 3 types of frontals.

There is the all lace frontal, which lace is really flattering, it is perfect. If you are not sure how to install it, please consult a stylist. Whole front piece from ear to ear, you have to make sure the lace flat. You can glue it down and sew it perfectly.

The second type of frontal is the silk and lace combination, where it is lace from ear to ear, however, it has a 4×4 silk in the middle of the frontal, so it has lace all the way and in the middle 4 inches long and 4 inches wide, it has silk. So, that’s a combination frontal.

The third type of a frontal is all silk in the front, it is silk from ear to ear, so no matter where you part it, you see silk, all through the frontal of the hair. The frontal is from 13 inches long to 4 inches wide, so you have an ear to ear long and 4 inches wide

Size is the most obvious difference between a frontal and closure. A closure is usually temple to temple, the standard size is 4×4″ inches. There’s a smaller area, where your parting is limited too, so you can only part where you have, so this is usually temple to Temple, closures are usually templed to Temple. Frontal is ear to ear, the standard size is 13×4″ inches. Frontal gives you more versatility as far as parting and styles with making it look natural than with closures.
