The Difference Between a Lace Front & a Lace Closure

Lace front and lace closure hair units feature lace around the hairline to give the wearer a more natural look than traditional wigs. When used correctly, the lace blends with the wearer’s natural skin tone to give the illusion of hair growing from the scalp. Wearing a lace front or a lace closure offers versatility in hair styling options.

Lace Front
Available in a range of styles, hair types and colors, lace fronts feature a thin, transparent piece of lace mesh around the hairline, attached to a wig made from synthetic or human hair. Covering the entire head appeals to women looking to give their hair a break from daily manipulation, and the lace creates a realistic hairline, allowing the wearer part the hair for a natural look. The wearer must cut the lace to fit her own hairline before securing the wig around the perimeter of the head with glue or tape.

Lace Closure
A lace closure covers only a portion of the head, and proves ideal for people who want to cover thinning hair or temporarily change their hairstyle. To cover thinning hair, the lace on the unit should blend with the wearer’s skin tone before its glued or taped into position. Matching the closure with the wearer’s hair type and color is the key to a natural, flattering look.

Lace fronts and closures can be customized to fit an individual wearer’s head or purchased as a stock piece via a website or brick-and-mortar beauty supply store. Ordering online allows for more style options, but not the ability to carefully examine the unit or ensure proper hair blending before purchase.

The price of a synthetic hair lace front ranges from $25 to $80, while human hair units cost $100 and up. A synthetic hair lace closure costs $25 to $60; human hair closures start at $70, depending on the size and type of hair.

A trained hair stylist can demonstrate how to properly apply and maintain either unit, but following the manufacturer’s application instructions will further improve the experience. The De Novo Hair website states that "most clients achieve a one to four-week hold with the right adhesive, washing and nurturing their own hair in between applications."

Users can wear most lace fronts or closures while participating in physical activities such as swimming, but De Novo Hair suggests testing different adhesives in advance to determine which provides the best hold. Glue application and friction between the unit and the wearer’s natural hair may cause a thinning hairline.
