Not everyone is familiar with closures or has even heard of them, so this post will start at the very beginning and include a video tutorial on how to install a lace closure – specifically with newbies in mind, because I’m a newbie myself and had to do quite a bit of research before diving in!
Lace closures – or simply closures – are special hair pieces in which individual hair strands are tied onto a piece of lace. The lace may be either beige or dark brown. Closures are sold in various sizes, most commonly three inches wide by four inches deep. The purpose of a closure is to allow the wearer to have a full sew in (or wig) with none of their hair left out but still have the flexibility of being able to wear a part with the appearance of scalp showing. This is the exact same technology as a lace front or lace wig. When the closure is attached to your braided hair (or wig) you are able to part the closure in any direction.
