The hair extensions and Wig industry is never at risk of being boring. there’s always something new that comes out, and to be honest often that something new is something interesting, more economical, and exciting to try.
Over the last few months that something new has been the closure wig which is trending heavily all over Tik Tok and Instagram and will be the topic of today so that we all can understand exactly what a closure wig is.
In short, a closure wig is not much different from a lace front wig, however instead of using a lace frontal, a lace closure is used instead. This closure can range in size from 4 x 4 to 5 x 5 wide and can be extremely easy to install compared to a lace front wig.
What are Closure Wigs?
We still must apply makeup for blending when it comes to closure wigs like we do with lace front wigs. However, it’s a lot easier to set and there’s no requirement for glue. We also don’t have to be so concerned with the edges of the wig ungluing and leaving us embarrassed when at work or out and about town.
The great thing about closure wigs is that because they’re so easy to install, they look very natural. Honestly, they look a lot more natural than lace front wigs do in my opinion. Also, they are easy to maintain. Again, this is all relative to lace front wigs as lace front wigs can be a chore to maintain because there’s adhesive to think of and sweating etc.
However, one of the major drawbacks to closure wigs is that they are not as versatile as the lace front wigs. With the lace front wig, you can put apart down the middle down the side or both of you like. However, with a closure wig you will likely have a middle part or no part at all.
What are Closure Wigs?
These wigs last just if any other wig and possibly longer Especially since you don’t have to use glue. Using glue of course is suggested and just about any stylist that you go to will likely use glue to keep the wig intact. However, it is not an absolute necessity
. Here’s the great part, closure wigs are much more economical than any other wig on the market side from headband wigs and U-part wigs.
There you have it a brand-new modality brought to you by the hair extensions industry, I know you’ll find closure wigs to be interesting, economical and a lot of fun.
