The most important thing a woman can have next to talent is her Hair. Nothing can add beauty to the woman's personality than her hair. Hair is a real blessing of god but maintaining and enhancing this blessing is your choice. Some women are blessed with healthy long hair and some are blessed with thin, short hair. No matter what color, texture, or length do you have, hair in any form is a gift. Michair.vn is always there to help you enhance your hair beauty with its amazing hair extensions.

Hair extensions are the easiest and quickest way to change your look or add beauty to it. The most common and trendy styles of hair extensions are frontal lace and closure lace extensions. Both look amazing If you style them properly. But do you know the difference between Lace frontal and Lace closure? Let’s discuss this topic further:

Lace Frontal

What Is A Lace Frontal?

Using hair extensions on routine days is the hottest trend nowadays. But lace frontal hair extensions are winning people’s attention more than lace closures. What’s the reason that people like to use lace frontals more often than lace closures? It is because lace frontals look more realistic and provide more ways to style your hair than lace closures. This is one of the main differences between lace frontals and lace closures. If we describe lace frontals in a proper way, they are basically a type of wig that contains absolute lace along the front portion of the wig. Hair strands are coming out of the lace and seem like your natural hair. Lace frontals perfectly mimic your natural hairline by resting along your forehead. If we talk about the area covered by lace frontals, it is 4 inches in length to the back and 13 inches in width, covering your hairline from ear to ear. Lace frontal hair strands are sew-in strands or bonded installations.

There are many types of lace used in frontals, like Swiss, French, HD, etc. Most people prefer Swiss lace due to its longer durability, but some people prefer HD lace due to its more realistic look. It blends more easily with your skin tone. French laces are not very good to use.

Why Should You Buy Lace Frontals?

Many beginner women are confused about which type of hair extensions they should wear. Some feel good with lace frontals, and some with lace closures. Actually, you should observe all the factors related to that thing before buying it. If you do not have a proper hairline or thin hair at the front, which interferes with your dream hairstyling, then you will prefer lace frontals. Right? So before buying lace frontals, here we are to tell you what the actual difference is between lace frontals and lace closures and what makes one better than the other:

Easy to install

Lace frontals are easy to install and manage. You can style them easily by matching the tone of the lace with your natural skin tone. Lace frontal requires little installation time and can be set easily within an hour. Women who avoid using a lot of straighteners or curlers should buy these lace frontal wigs to get the hairstyle they want without damaging their natural hair.

Versatile in styles

The most amazing and demanding quality of lace frontal is that it does not limit your hairstyling and provides a variety of hairstyles. You can rock the party with whatever hairstyle you want. Enjoy side parts or mid-parts, high ponytails or high buns, French braids or waterfall braids, with lace frontal hair extensions.

More comfortable

As lace frontals are fixed to your forehead, they need a proper space to set. Lace frontals are more comfortable than lace closures because they provide a constant flow of air to your scalp and hair. They let your hair breathe freely and cause little or no damage to your scalp's health. They also give your hair a more realistic look.

Why Should You Not Buy Lace Frontals?

Here are some cons of lace frontals, because nothing is perfect. Everything has good and bad sides.

More expensive

It is true that lace frontals require fewer hair bundles. However, due to its durability and versatility in styles, which can give you a more realistic look, it is more expensive compared to lace closure.

Can damage the hairline

Sew-in lace frontals are usually installed using glue or lace tape. Excessive use of lace frontal can cause damage to your natural hairline and sometimes your forehead skin too.

Require a lot of work

In order to achieve the best look with lace frontals, you have to bleach the knots, trim the baby hair, and apply brown powder to the lace to match your skin tone. The lace frontal also needs weekly maintenance. These things take a lot of time and effort.

Lace Closure

What Is A Lace Closure?

Lace closure is used to finish off your hairstyle so that it blends easily with your natural hair. Lace closures come in different sizes, but the most trending and favorite size for women is 4x4. It covers equal length and width on your scalp. Lace closures have three types: mid-part, three-part, and free-part. Mid-part closures provide a mid-part hairstyle; three-part lace closures provide three ways to style your hair; and free-part closures let you enjoy all types of hairstyles, from open hair to tied hair, whatever you want. You can see how lace closures are installed right here.

Why Should You Buy Lace Closures?

Lace closure extensions have pros that cannot be delivered by lace frontals. Which are:

Quick maintenance

Lace closures are the easiest way to add lavish style to your hair without causing any damage. Wanna get a beautiful braided hairstyle with huge volume? Put on the lace closure and take it off at the end of the day. It doesn't need skin-tone matching or baby hair maintenance. The most you can do with a lace closure is wash, condition, and style it.

Last longer

With proper maintenance, the durability of lace closure is longer than that of lace frontal because lace closure does not involve the use of glue or customization. So there is no chance of melting glue in hot weather with this type of extension.

Protects your hair

With lace closure, you don't have to apply heat or dye parts of your hair in order to match your weave. You can just dye your weave and closure any color you want and not any of your actual hair, making the process much safer. Lace closure also doesn’t cause any harm to your hairline or scalp since you can put it off easily at the end of the day so that your hair can breathe.

Why Should You Not Buy Lace Closures?

There are a few cons to lace closures, which are:

 Limited hairstyles

Lace closures usually do not offer versatility in styles. You are pretty much limited to 3 styles: middle part, three part, and free part.

Not fitting sometimes

Unlike lace frontals, which can fit your head easily, you have to know your precise head size to choose the correct size of lace closures; otherwise, they will end up not fitting you.

Grow your hair out

When you wear a sew-in lace closure wig, as your hair grows over time, it will grow together with your wig or weave. This usually pushes up your wig or pushes it out of the way, and you would need to do a readjustment of your wig or weave every 4 weeks.

Lace frontals and lace closures are both good at saving your natural hair from heat damage and abusive hairstyles. Although lace frontal is better than lace closure in many ways, as we discussed in the difference between lace closure and lace frontal above. Using hair extensions is a better decision than curling, straightening, or dyeing your hair. Your hair is a very precious gift from God; try to protect it from any harm.
