As all the hair-lovers know, wigs are considered one of the most powerful beauty weapons that perfectly accessorize women. To make a full head, a wig needs 2 to three hair bundles and 1 matching lace closure/ frontal. So what is lace frontal and how to tell the differences between lace closure and lace frontal? Is lace frontal really the finest choice after all? Let’s figure it out together down here.

WHAT IS LACE FRONTAL?
Lace frontal, as you can imagine, is a larger version of lace closure or half of the wig that goes from ear to ear. The standard size of the lace frontal is 13×4 Lace Frontal. Literally, lace frontal may cost you much fewer bundles to sew on the lace when making wigs due to its covering. In addition, it seems like lace frontal is sort of more expensive but after all, it’ll bring you more benefits than you thought
PROS OF LACE FRONTAL
There 3 main points for benefits of Lace Frontal, which are:
It looks natural
It comes without any doubt that the lace of frontals cover almost what is supposed to appear on face, which means when seeing directly, people can hardly realize it’s not really a wig, it looks like their real hair.
Easy to Brush
As we can imagine, the lace frontal covers almost half of the head, that’s why when using the comb to brush it out, it gives you the feeling that it’s your own hair, not a wig at all.
It can be changed up to your demands
What I truly mean in this criterion is that the parting of the lace frontal. No matter how many partings that you want, you can easily change it according to your wish. Middle parting? Three partings? Even ponytail wigs, lace frontal can all make your dreams come true.
CONS OF LACE FRONTAL
The only problem that we can find about the disadvantages of Lace Frontal is its cost.
It doesn’t fit those who are on a budget
The price always goes with the quality, or you’ll get what you pay for…etc. We hear about that all day long since it’s too good to be true. The actual merits of lace frontal are so amazing that hardly can anyone deny it.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LACE FRONTAL AND LACE CLOSURE?
There are three main differences between Lace Frontal and Lace Closure, which are:
SIZE: Lace frontal has a much larger size than lace closure.
The most visible difference between lace frontals and lace frontals is their sizes. For closures, their sizes come from 2×4 to 4×4 or 4×6 and the parting tends to be middle seeing that the lace is not too large for users to decide.
Typically, lace frontals could be 13×4 inch, others could be 13×6. Due to the large lace of lace frontal, it’ll bring you much greater coverage compared to lace closure, as a result, it gives you much more unique experiences and flexibility in styling (curtain bangs, waves, curls, etc).
COST: Lace frontals, for sure, are costlier.
What you can easily tell lace frontal and lace closure apart are their costs. Obviously, the lace frontal does not have the same price as the lace closure. Due to the larger size and more complicated structure, the lace frontals have a tendency to cost much more than the closures.
VERSATILITY: Lace frontal is supposed to bring more advantages than the other.
If typical lace closure can only be used for middle parting, lace frontal, as I mentioned, could be divided into any parting styles that you can by only brushing the hair to separate the hair into the parting that you want. Additionally, there’s one more thing that prevails over the lace closure, which is that lace frontal can be tied up to make a ponytail while lace closure is impossible.
WHICH ONE IS BETTER? LACE FRONTAL OR LACE CLOSURE?
The thing is both are awesome as both give you spectacularly amazing experiences with the full and flawless install and make the outsiders hard to recognize you’re wearing a wig.
Nevertheless, due to the cost, users may encounter some difficulties when making a decision on whether to choose lace frontal or lace closure.
