About Lace Closure
Next, let’s talk about what is a lace closure?
A lace closure is different from a frontal because it does not cover your head from temple to temple. Instead, closures are installed in the “horseshoe” area of the head to close off the style, hence the name closure.
Closures are typically 4” X 4” but can come in slightly smaller or larger sizes. There are two types of closures: silk base closures and lace closures.
A key to a great closure is ensuring that there is a natural density to it. The secret key to a great closure is to make sure the lace has bleached knots around the perimeter and that you dye the lace to be two shades lighter than your complexion on your face.

What’s The Difference Between Them?
●Size: The most obvious difference between lace frontals and lace closures are the size. Closures are typically 4 x 4 inches.While frontals are 13*4 inches.Lace frontals are bigger mainly because they run temple to temple to cover the entire hairline.
Lace closures are smaller because their primary purpose is to close off an install hence the name closure. Closures typically only cover a horseshoe size portion at the top or front of an install.
●Materials: Both closures and frontals are typically made with either lace or silk. Some frontals are even made with both silks in the middle 4x4 section and lace on either side.
While silk base closures tend to mimic a scalp more accurately when viewed up close, lace based closures and frontals are preferred as the material lays much flatter against and blends better with the scalp. This allows lace users to achieve not just a natural, but accurate replica of their own scalp.
●Versatility: The main benefit of choosing a lace frontal is its unmatched styling versatility. Wearing a lace frontal can allow you to achieve a styling option that a closure doesn't, frontals allow you to wear pulled back hairstyles.
Remember closures only cover a small portion of the front of the install making it impossible to pull back the sides without exposing tracks. A lace frontal covers the entire hairline and will allow you to achieve a seamless style that you can pull back off of your face.
●Installation: Both closures and frontals can be sewn in or constructed into a wig. They can then be sewn down around the edges or worn as a removable wig with a band and laid down with some hair gel or glue, its your preference.
Ultimately, a wig with a frontal will provide its wearer with the most styling versatility, but closures remain the most appropriate option for simple everyday looks (like ones with a middle part) and/or for those who wish to maintain an exact style.
Besides, another difference between the two is that lace closures are sewn into place while lace frontals are generally meant to be bonded in place. While both can be placed either in front or behind the hairline, lace frontals are commonly placed in front of the hairline usually because they are bonded.
