What to know closure and frontal hair?
About closure hair
Closures work are special hair units that individual hair strands are attached (usually hand-tied) to a piece of material, such as, lace or silk. Closure hair works to “close off” your weave or a particular style and give you a more beautiful look.
Typically, a closure will be 4 x 4 inches in size so that it will not cover the entire head. But there are a lot more of smaller or bigger closures that are able to meet your demand.
About the number of hair bundles, for a full head sew-in you will need at least 3 raw hair bundles.
What’s about the material of hair piece? There are two common choices – a slike base and a lace base. However, the lace closure is much more popular as it brings the flexibility and versatility for the customers. It is super easy to apply the closure for all types of hair, for example, natural, scanty, permed or the less thrilling receding hairline. But if you use a lace closure, you need to bleach or tone the knots/base of the closure or adding concealer for it to blend properly with your scalp so that you will have a more natural look.
