Four Types of Closures for Women

Four Types of Closures for Women

Wigs have become the go-to protective style for women, and rightly so. For one, they are easy to style, and with them, you don’t have to worry about spending extra time in a hair salon. Even better, some of these wigs come with closures to make them look more natural.

A closure is simply hair installed on top of a silk or lace material and attached to one’s hair. Essentially, they are the finishing of a wig. With a closure, you can look more natural whenever you wear a weave or wig. Also, this item can be taped, sewn, or glued down; no matter the attachment method, you’ll always get the same natural result.

There are different kinds and sizes of closures, so you might be confused about which works best for you. In this article, we’ll clear up that confusion by explaining the different types of closures available.

Lace Closure

A lace closure is a small semi-circle shape of lace with hair attached to it. This closure is usually placed on top of the head to give you a natural look. There are three kinds of lace closures: one part/middle part, three-part, and free part.

The one part or middle part closures are usually on one side or the middle, so you can only style it from that part. The three-part offers you more styling options because you can create styles from any side of your head or choose to stick to the middle part. The free part lace closure is highly recommended because you can style your wig or weave anyhow you want. A closure wig of this type will serve you well for different functions.

Lace Frontal

A lace frontal is bigger than a lace closure(13x4), extending from ear to ear. This frontal type is useful for people interested in creating a new hairline that stretches from one ear to another. Most ladies prefer lace frontal to lace closure because it’s versatile and offers unlimited styling options. You can also part a lace frontal in the middle, side, or three-part.

360 Frontal

As the name implies, the 360 frontal creates an entire hairline around your head. It is a lace headband with hair attached to it, and with it, you can pretty much rock any hairstyle you desire. This type of closure is regarded as the most natural closure because it more or less copies your hairline. A 360 frontal would also be the perfect option for people who love ponytails and showing off their baby hairs. With the aid of a hair gel, you can get creative and spruce up your baby hair.

Silk base Closure

This kind of closure is made with silk and is usually size 4x4. A silk base closure is made with several hair strands fixed into a nude silk material fortified with lace. It doesn’t lay on the head as flat as a lace closure, but it’s a perfect imitation of a natural scalp. This type of closure also tends to last longer than a silk closure.


Getting a wig with any of these closures is one of the best decisions you can make. And since we’ve explained the different kinds of closures in detail, it should be easier for you to get a wig that suits your taste.
