Hair Closure refers to the size is 4*4inch lace closure. It can be installed by bonding using lace glue or lace tape, as well as attaching hair clips. The most popular method for installing lace closures is by sewing the closure then installing the rest of the weave around the closure starting at the back of the head working your way up.
The closure is placed close to the edge of the braided foundation near the hairline.The stylist then begins to sew around the perimeter starting with the sides and then the back of the closure making sure not to pull the closure back while sewing in place.
To create a natural looking part carefully tweeze the parting space so that it matches your natural parting. You can pull some of your baby hairs out near the perimeter of the front edge of the closure to help conceal the front edge. Applying concealer or foundation to the part gives it a flawless finish.

Lace frontal means a closure that goes from ear to ear hence the name frontal. Frontals can be installed by bonding using a lace glue or lace tape in front of your natural hairline, as well as by attaching with the use of clips wherever it feels necessary. You can also use the band method! This is accomplished by sewing the elastic band onto the ear tabs and place on head putting the band towards the nape of your head.
The most popular method for installing a lace frontal involves sewing down the back of the frontal and using a bonding agent to glue the front hairline down. The rest of the weave is then installed around the back of the frontal starting at the back of the head moving up until right on top of the edge of the frontal. The frontal can be fully clipped in or fully sewn in. Again, the rest of the weave is installed around the frontal.
Unlike a closure, none of your own hair will be left out in a bonded lace frontal installation as the piece is meant to create a natural hairline. If the frontal is fully sewn or clipped, the hairline could be left out, and the unit installed just behind the hairline.
Tips to take good care of your hair closure
Hair closures need tender loving care just like your natural God-given hair. Hair closure pieces are somewhat delicate, whether they're silk or lace hair closure types. Your investment would be put to waste if your closure gets damaged due to balding. Balding occurs when a spot on your closure loses its hair strands. So treat your hair closure with extra care using the following tips and never worry another bad hair day again. This tips also suitable for hair bundles with closure.
1: Don't do anything rash with your closure such as tugging, scratching or rough handling. These are the primary causes of balding which will do more harm than good.
2: Softly brush or comb your closure using a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb. Brush the hair from the ends as you work your way up to the root. Hold the hair at the root while combing to avoid tension.
3: Do not apply heavy hair products directly on the closure as this could damage the piece. Avoid using too many gels, lotions, oils or mousse since this can cause tangles and damage. To add moisture and keep it soft, apply a little amount of light moisturizing hair serum instead so that you can easily form your curls or waves. Extra care should be taken if you use rollers, flat iron, curling or crimping devices.
4: One of the main reasons why a hair closure piece would get damaged is when it is exposed to the elements or rubbed with other objects. Store your closure in a dust-free box without any other stuff in it or hang it properly inside a cabinet. Store it in a way that rubbing with other objects could be avoided.
5: Most closures are hand knotted to offer a more natural look so require a little "Tender Little Care"Do not put much tension on the closure and do not stretch too hard to avoid damage. Wash your hair closure about 2 times once a month.
For a deep scalp cleanse, we recommend removing the closure before wash and reinstall afterward. To wash your uninstalled closure, hold your hair closure at the base as you saturate it with lukewarm water. Then apply a sulfate-free shampoo from root to ends. Rinse thoroughly with water and condition it the same way. Let your hair closure air dry before use.
