Size of lace closure is 4 inch long, 4 inch wide, so it is also called “4×4 lace closure”. It fits in a small space on top of your head, according to your desired parting.

From the sizes of lace frontal and closure, we can see that, lace closures are smaller than frontals, though both of them can be used to close off your install.


. Cost

Compared with 13×4 lace frontal and 360 lace frontal, 4×4 lace closure is the smallest hairpiece, therefore closures are with the lowest prices. From the following chart, we will see the price gap between these 3 hairpieces. Taking 10 inch length for example:

PS: from the chart above, we can see that the price gap between a lace frontal and a lace closure would be $10-$15. 360 lace frontal is more expensive than lace closure.


. Versatility

Frontals have more versatility than lace closures.

360 frontal versatility: with a 360 lace frontal you can effortlessly brush your hair back into a long ponytail. It can be held in different styles.

Lace frontal versatility: compared to lace closure, lace frontals require fewer hair bundles for a full install, and they even can be used without weave, so if you want to purchase less bundles: opt for a lace frontal. Though lace frontal is more dear than closure, it will give you a flawless and seamless hairline. With a lace frontal, you can part your hair anywhere you like, which makes frontals the most versatile option for black women.

Lace closure versatility: lace closures (4x4 inches) are used to recreate a natural hair parting, for example, if you love a simple middle-part, three or side part hairstyle: choose to buy lace closure (as there are 3 different options for a closure: three part, middle part, and free part). But wearing a lace closure, it is impossible to create half-up/half-down hairstyles and long ponytail hairstyles which can be easily achieved if you sew in with a lace frontal.

Many customers are curious about the duration time of their closure or frontal. Lsybeauty hair has taken a long time to collect & analyze useful date reviews, and will detail their lasting time below (for your reference only). Hope it will help you.

How long does a lace closure last: theoretically speaking, a lace closure can last for a long time if you properly care for it. The more proper maintenance, the longer its lifetime. Generally, Lsybeauty lace closures last about 4-6 weeks or longer, following our maintenance tips, but after each installment they will need to be replaced.

How long does a lace frontal last: lace frontals need attaching through glue, tape or sewing. If glued, frontal installation usually last around 2-3 weeks, making sure using top lace glue..
