How To Install A Lace Closure & Lace Frontal
Don’t Know how to Install your Lace Closure?
Closures 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.
How do I install HAIRFLEEK 13×4 Lace Frontal?
Lace frontals are the new rave! It’s 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.
