Everything you ever wanted to know about lace closures
Lace closures are hairpieces in which each strand of the hair extension is connected to the underlying lace. These closures can be used for several hair extensions’ styles, including body wave, loose wave, and even water waves.
Lace closures make it seem like your hair extensions are growing directly from your head. They conceal your natural hairline and display the gorgeous wig’s baby hair instead. These items are great for women who want to look their best.
What is the best lace closure?
Lace closures mostly vary based on size. They come in squares and you can have the closure as big or as small as you want. The most common size is the 4×4 inch closure. You can also have the 5×5inch and the 6×6inch although these are rare.
Lace closures can also be divided into one part, middle part, and three part closures. These lace closure types talk about the parting in the wigs. The parting you choose for your lace items depends on your personal style and the products you might have used in the past.
Some stylists may also classify a lace closure according to the type of lace used. A closure can have regular lace, HD lace, or transparent lace. Transparent and HD lace closures make it seem like the hair extensions are growing out of your hair. These two are the most desirable, even though they are more expensive.
As you can see, there's no best closure style for hair extensions. It all depends on you and what you want from your wigs. It may also depend on the look you want for your hairline.
What’s the difference between a lace closure and a regular closure?
Lace closures are the standard types of colors available today. So technically speaking, lace closures are regular closures. However, depending on the hair extensions, texture, hairline needs, and style you choose, you can get different types of lace closures.
But there are also silk closures. These are similar to lace closures and can be applied to any style including body wave and water wave hair. You may not have heard of this style because silk closures aren’t popular. One of the biggest reasons is that this closure type is hard to style. Silk has a thicker texture than lace, and your stylist needs to install it carefully or you won’t enjoy the result.
