Closure wigs provide an excellent solution for achieving a hairline that looks effortlessly natural. These wigs are constructed using a small piece of lace sewn to the front, with the hair meticulously attached to the lace.

Crownway Hair offers versatile options, including 6X6 Closure Wigs, 5×5 Closure Wigs and 4×4 Closure Wigs, allowing you to choose the perfect fit for your preferences and style.

What is a Closure Wig?

A lace closure typically comes in 4×4, 5×5, 6×6, and 7×7, although the larger ones have become quite rare. They’re similar to frontals, but instead of having a strip of scalp-like material that runs from ear to ear, you now have a square scalp space. They usually come in three-part, free-part, and middle-part, and the free part is the preferred option because of its versatility.

Pros and Cons of Closure Wig

Pros of wearing closure wigs:

Extended Lifespan: Closure wigs, when properly maintained, typically last longer than closures used in sew-in hairstyles.

Suitable for Warm Weather: Lace closure wigs are ideal for warmer climates as they require less gluing and customization compared to sew-in frontal wigs.

Easy Maintenance: Closure wigs are simple to care for. Regular washing, conditioning, and styling are all that’s required. You can easily remove the wig at the end of the day and wear it again the next day, reducing stress on the hair and increasing its longevity.

Natural Hairline: The lace part of the closure, measuring 4 inches by 4 inches or 5 inches by 5 inches, covers the forehead, enabling the creation of a natural and beautiful hairline.

Cons of wearing closure wigs:

Limited Styling Options: Closure wigs offer three styling options: three-part, free-part, or middle-part. Unlike frontal wigs, they cannot be pulled back into a ponytail, which may not be ideal for those who enjoy experimenting with different hairstyles.

Hair Growth Management: Wearing closure wigs does not impede hair growth. As your hair grows, it tends to push the wig out of place, requiring frequent visits to the hairstylist approximately every four weeks.

Difference Between a Frontal Wig and a Closure Wig

Size:

Closures have the ability to cover a small area of your head, while frontals can extend to cover your entire hairline. The standard sizes for closures are 4×4 inches, while frontals typically measure 13×4 inches.

Versatility:

Closures require minimal maintenance, offering an everyday look with ease. On the other hand, installing a frontal wig involves various tasks such as tinting, tweezing, plucking, and trimming of baby hairs. Frontals typically last approximately 2-3 weeks due to the adhesive losing its effectiveness quickly. With proper care, closures have a longer lifespan, allowing for readjustment every month. Additionally, closures require less gluing and customization, making them well-suited for hot weather.

Cost:

Frontal wigs tend to be more expensive as they come with more hair and a larger area of hand-tied lace. They are essentially semi-finished wigs that require additional adjustments. In contrast, closures are more affordable due to their easy maintenance and realistic appearance. Closures can typically be found in the $40-$120 price range, while frontals range from $75-$250. The price varies based on factors such as hair length, quality, and manufacturing shortcuts.

Ultimately, choosing between a closure and a frontal wig comes down to personal preference. Both types of wigs offer stunning results and can enhance your appearance. Consider factors such as your budget and how frequently you wish to change your hairstyle. If versatility is a priority, a frontal wig is an excellent choice. On the other hand, if you are satisfied with a few hairstyles, a closure wig can save you money. When installed and maintained correctly, both options provide great protection for your natural hair, preventing potential heat damage and breakage.

Install A Closure Wig

Installing a closure wig can be done following these steps:

Prepare your natural hair: Start by washing and conditioning your hair to ensure it’s clean and moisturized. If desired, you can also braid your hair in cornrows or create flat twists to create a smooth base for the wig.

Position the closure: Place the closure wig on your head to determine the desired placement. Adjust the wig until it aligns with your natural hairline and feels comfortable.

Secure the wig: Use wig clips or bobby pins to secure the wig in place. Insert the clips or pins along the perimeter of the wig, making sure they are firmly attached to your natural hair or the wig cap.

Cut the lace: Trim the excess lace along the hairline of the closure. Be careful to leave a small amount of lace to ensure a natural-looking blend.

Apply adhesive (optional): If desired, you can use wig adhesive or glue to secure the closure in place. Apply a thin layer of adhesive along the perimeter of the closure and wait for it to become tacky before pressing it onto your scalp.

Blend with your natural hair: Use a rat-tail comb or your fingers to blend the edges of the closure with your natural hair. This will create a seamless transition and a more natural appearance.

Style as desired: Style the closure wig as you would with your natural hair. You can use heat styling tools, such as curling irons or flat irons, to create different hairstyles.

Final touches: Adjust the wig to ensure it sits comfortably and looks natural. Use a mirror to check for any visible gaps or uneven areas and make any necessary adjustments.

Remember to follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer of your closure wig for the best results. Additionally, proper care and maintenance of the wig will help maintain its appearance and longevity.
