Post Lace Closures and Lace Frontals: What’s the Difference
Both lace frontals and closures are instrumental in the creation of gorgeous sew-in human hair weave installations. They are both made from either French or Swiss lace, and serve the same purpose– to close of the install without to blend.

So which one is better? Well, in this blog post, we’ll discuss the difference between them, so you have an improved understanding of which is better for you.

What is a Lace Frontal
A lace frontal refers to the half wig that goes from one ear to the other. It is sewn with around three to four hair bundles, can be used in different styles, allowing the hair to be held back even when the closure cannot. It’s usually used when you’re trying to recreate the whole hairline ear to ear, and is particularly popular with people with thinning edges or alopecia.

So Why Go With Lace Frontals?
Lace frontals are incredibly comfortable to both install and to wear in the long run. Lace frontal wearers will often use them to try a different texture or color from their natural hair, or when they are protecting their edges.

What’s more, this style allows for excellent versatility – you can wear pulled back hairstyles with the lace frontal, as it covers the whole hairline and gives you seamlessness. Lace frontals also allow you to conceal hair loss along the hairline, thanks to ear-to-ear coverage that mimics your hairline with near perfection. You need to purchase fewer lace bundles with lace frontals – they cost more individually, but you have to buy fewer of them.

And What about Lace Closures?
The lace closure does not cover your head ear to ear, but is installed in the horseshoe part of the head to close the style off – that’s where the name closure comes from. The best closures have a natural density to them, as well as bleached knots around the perimeter that you can dye to be a couple of shades lighter than your complexion.

Closures are also versatile – they can be worn by people with all kinds of hair, from natural to permed to scanty to even receding; the lace closure can give the wearer a natural looking hairline. Plus, you can dye lace closures without needing to dye your real hair as well. The lace closure also serves to blend your own hair with the human hair weave at the hairline

So What’s the Difference?
Lace frontals are typically bigger than closures, since frontals have to run from ear to ear, to provide adequate coverage across the whole hairline. Closures, on the other hand, only need to close the install, and so only have to cover a small portion.

The biggest difference between them is in terms of versatility – lace frontals leave closures in the dust when it comes to this. With a frontal, you get more styling options than with closures, including pulled back styles. However, closures are more appropriate for simple everyday looks.
