UNDERSTANDING CLOSURES AND FRONTALS 🤔
If you are new to the world of wigs, you probably have been bugged by these two words: closure and frontal.
I can honestly admit that I struggled with these simple terms when I was a novice. Now, let's clarify;
On its own, a closure is not a wig. It is a magical little piece used to complete the front of a weave if you choose not to leave out your natural hair.
A closure wig is easily identified by the square form of the lace. When worn, it fits from temple to temple and is 'U' shaped. There are different measurements of closures; 4x4, 4x3, 5x5 etc. These numbers are measured in inches, a 4x4 for instance, is a perfect square; 4 inch on each side -- now you get a clearer idea? 😉
Just like a closure, a frontal on its own completes a weave nicely should you not want to leave any natural hair out, talk about gorgeous protective styling.
Now, a frontal wig can be identified by the lace fitting from ear to ear. Baby gurl, if you are new to the world of wigs, a closure is so much easier for you to start with, just saying 😘
HOW THE HECK DO I DECIDE BETWEEN A CLOSURE AND A FRONTAL?
Sweetheart, just because you have a red pair of shoes in your closet, doesn't mean you can't have a blue pair 😉 That was a cheesy joke!
To put simply, a closure or a frontal determines the flexibility of how you part the front of your hair. If you only need a mid part or a simple side part, the closure is perfect for you. However, if you are more adventurous, and need the front of your hair looking perfectly natural from ear to ear, then yep, a frontal is the way to go. A frontal gives you the liberty to do what ever you want with your hair line. A closure limits you, from temple to temple.
Keep in mind, closures are generally easier to install than frontals, which is why they are more recommended for new wig users. Ultimately, both are absolutely gorgeous and popular.
