A frontal is a piece of lace with hair that mimics a natural hairline from ear to ear, with natural free parting. It comes in various sizes and lengths. Frontals are available in both silk and lace. Most popular sizes are 13x4 and 13x6 inches. Frontals usually stay on for approximately 2-3 weeks(when glued). After a few weeks re-installation is required. This is OPTIONAL for those who like adhesives. Bleaching of knots and plucking are highly recommended prior to installing to achieve the optimal desired look. All units are bleached and pre- plucked
What Is a Closure?
A closure is a piece of lace with individual hairs sewn on.The hair mimics a natural parting of the scalp and are available with silk or lace. It usually measures 4x4 inches and are smaller than lace frontals. Closures are less flexible when it comes to parting and need to be maintained more often than frontals. Lace closures usually provide a flatter and smoother appearance.Bleaching of knots and plucking are highly recommended prior to installing to achieve the optimal desired look. All units are bleached and pre- plucked.
Tape Adhesive or Glue Adhesive?
*Tape Adhesives are constructed in a way that both sides are sticky. One side is meant to adhere to skin, while the other adheres to the lace frontal or closure.
*Glue Adhesives are applied first, then used with typically a blow dryer to make the glue tacky. The wig is then placed on head with glue and secured to head using heat.
Before choosing an adhesive, please keep in mind to a few important factors.
-Your level of skin sensitivity
-Your skin type (oily, dry)
-How long do you plan to keep your wig or frontal/closure on
-Level daily activity (active lifestyle or low daily activity)
