The Most Popular Questions About Lace Wigs

Want to try different hairstyles with lace wigs but fail to know exactly what lace frontal or closure is, or mix up with a full lace wig or lace frontal wig because you are the rookie? Kes Wigs will definitely help you out to understand every detail.

How Much Do You Know About Lace Frontal and Lace Closure?

When you read this article, I bet you are a fan of wigs or a beginner of wig-wearing. However, how much exactly do you know about lace frontal and lace closure?

Lace frontal covers the entire hairline from ear to ear and usually is with three to four bundles. It is more versatile to do many kinds of hairstyles you like, and there is no need to worry whether it will be less natural or not.

Lace closure normally covers from the front head to the top with one bundle. It consumes less time to sew in the hair but limits the versatility as well.

Lace Frontal Vs. Lace Closure

Questions About Lace Wigs

What’s The Difference?

Basically, there are four differences between a lace frontal and lace closure, which are size, density, quality, and value. Let’s take a look at the size. The lace frontal normally refers to 13×4 inches lace hair attachment aside from ear to ear.

While lace closure refers to 4×4 inches aside from the front head to the top of the head, compared with these two styles, the frontalis is the same as three to four lace closure, which means that the density of the frontalis was reasonably much more than the latter.

Types Size(inch) Density
Lace Frontal 13 x 4, 13 x 6 High
Lace Closure 4 x 4, 5 x 5 Low

Quality and Value

The lace frontal is a bit more high-maintenance, lasting for a month or month ahead after putting up on the head. But with the bigger size, it would be a lot more versatile, and you can do whatever hairstyles you want, like half up, half down, ponytail, up-do, etc. By the way, a wig with lace frontal exactly is flatter than you think. Even the entire front is covered.

Types Quality Value(dollar)
Lace Frontal high-maintenance 100~200
Lace Closure low-maintenance 65~110

Lace closure, conversely, is low-maintenance with a smaller size, and mostly it would last for around 2 months. The closure is easier to manage and customize since it is just one of the sections, and you can part it everywhere, like the  lace frontal wigleft side, the right size, without worrying about the scalp being tore. Honestly, it would look more naturally together with your real hair. When it comes to the value, normally, the lace frontal ranges between 100 to 200 USD, and the median is 150 USD.

While lace closure, as we can see, that size facially, is cheaper than Frontal ranging from 65 to 110 USD, the median comes to 90 USD. Easily we can see from the date that apparently lace frontal seems to be a higher investment for wig lovers.

Which one is better?

Before we decide whether a wig with lace frontal is better than closure, I think it would be better to conclude each side’s pros and cons simply. Firstly, the pros and cons of lace frontal:

Pros Cons
·        High quality

·        Bigger size

·        Flatter in texture

·        Versatile for all kinds of hairstyles

·        High maintenance

·        High investment

·        Hard adhesive needed

·        A lot more complicated to install and to sew in

·        Occupies more time to put on the head and adjust

Secondly, the pros and cons of lace closure:

Pros Cons
·        Low maintenance

·        Less investment

·        More manageable

·        Less adhesive needed

·        Hair and scalp protected

·        Hard to make it flat

·        Less versatile

·        Easy to push back way far up or back the hairline

Above all, I am a bit more fan of lace closure approximately for its low maintenance, and actually, it is a good time saver. For people like me lacking time to do all kinds of hairstyles, it would be better than finishing the wearing. But of course, you must have your own reasons for being a frontal or closure lover, right?

Full Lace Wig Vs. Lace Frontal Wig

What’s The Difference?

A full lace wig is a full hand-tied lace wig coming from inside to outside, which is totally different from a lace frontal wig with 13×4 inches of frontal lace from ear to ear. You can do a full hairline and easily part off anywhere, for example, up/down, left/right side, ponytails, or up-do by wig with full lace.

But for a lace frontal wig, you have to beware that if you want to do up ponytail or knot up, better not to because it would make you look somewhat weird with that wig.full hand-tied lace wig

Quality and Value

Full lace wig has a high volume of density, and you even don’t have to worry about whether you need to adjust the lace wig after you put on your head for a few whiles, and by the way, it looks and feels like real hair and is like coming from your own scalp. There is no need to worry whether it would be a bit of weight with all full lace wigs because it is really the lightest and most comfortable one.

Lace frontal wig is only in the front, and you can flip it on the inside and weft it back but not the full side. It has anchoring combs to adjust the straps according to what you need to tighten the wig.

As a matter of value, I have to say a full lace wig is totally much more expensive than a lace frontal wig, for many people, especially beginners, could not afford it at all. But, there is a better choice, Lace frontal wig; I can say that it is currently the most popular wig type for wig lovers because it is affordable but easily adjustable.

Which one is better?

For a beginner, here is highly recommend to try for lace frontal wig. Why? The lace is only on the front side, and you mostly need to take care of the lace whether it is perfectly matched with the hairline from ear to ear to make it looks more natural.

Most importantly, we all know that wig is a high investment, so it would be better for a beginner to turn to lace frontal, which is affordable to save more before you get more familiar with how to use the wig.

For wig lovers, wow, I think a full lace wig suits you the best. With the most versatile wig you can part off anywhere with all kinds of hairstyles, you don’t have to worry about if you want to do up ponytails, two-sides ponytail it would look weird. You don’t have to be afraid of whether the lace goes up or back and forgets to adjust.

There is one point to mention for the wig maintenance. It would be better for you to go to the professional stylist for maintenance because you probably don’t know how to maintain from the professional side. You don’t want to mess up with the money, even just for the investment side, right?
