Best Lace Frontal Closure - Top 7 Hairpieces to Use in 2020 (2023)

Lace frontal closure (sometimes called lace frontal) is a type of hairpiece that can be used to recreate the entire hairline from one ear to the other. Typically, they are about 13 or 14 inches long and 4 to 6 inches wide. It’s a common misconception that closures and frontals are the same thing, but that isn’t the case. The reason for the confusion is that frontals are often considered a type of closure, because they act as a closure for the hairline (hence the name “frontal closure”). However, it’s inaccurate to say that all closures are frontals, because they aren’t. That may sound confusing if you’re new to the world of closures and frontals, but once you delve deeper into the topic, the difference between lace closures and lace frontal closures becomes obvious pretty quick.

Lace frontal closure benefits

Best Lace Frontal Closure - Top 7 Hairpieces to Use in 2020 (1)The main benefit is that it can be used to create or recreate your hairline.

For instance, if you’re trying out a new hair texture, you will need a frontal to match the new texture of your weave so that it looks like real hair. This would be an instance of recreating your hairline, because you already have a hairline – you’re just essentially applying a hair piece to match the new texture of your weave.

When we talk about creating a hairline, usually that means providing a cosmetic fix for thinning hair or hair loss caused by traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is a type of permanent hair loss, so that part of your hair line will never grow back. Therefore, the need to create a hairline from a lace frontal closure comes into play, and the improved aesthetic look can really add to a woman’s quality of life and satisfaction with her appearance after suffering hair loss.

Another benefit of buying a frontal lace closure is that, when applied correctly, you can actually use it to protect your hair.

The benefit of the lace part of the frontal is very important to consider. Lace lies flatter to the head than silk or monofilaments. If you’re able to bleach the knots and tint the lace to the right color, you can create a very natural look that is so flawless most people will never be able to tell you’re wearing a frontal.

Finally, lace can be parted freely in many cases, enabling you to wear a wider variety of hairstyles. This level of freedom and versatility is one of the main reasons women often opt for lace frontal closures over other types.

Best Lace Frontal Closure - Top 7 Hairpieces to Use in 2020 (2)Features

100% virgin Brazilian human hair

Everyone who is aware of hair extensions knows that human hair is far superior to synthetic hair. And virgin and raw human hair is the best for lace frontals, because it’s never been processed or bleached, so you can customize it as for your needs without worrying about damaging it.

All ethnicities are known for different hair types and textures. Brazil is very unique in that the people who live there are perhaps the most ethnically diverse in the world, and many individuals carry DNA from every continent (except for Antarctica, obviously). Native Brazilians, like all Native Americans, come from Asia, so they have the East or Northeast Asian hair type, straight, black, thick. Brazil was colonized early by the Portuguese, so you can throw Mediterranean and Middle Eastern DNA in there as well, which might produce wavy or curly hair, ranging from black to blond to red and anything in between.

Most notably, there are black Brazilians, descending from Africans brought to Brazil as slaves and black Brazilians make up a huge portion of Brazil’s overall population, and most Brazilians whose ancestors have been there for decades or more have some African DNA.

Unlike other countries, Brazil is, by and large, less segregated socially and ethnically than other countries, so all of these different genetic lineages might make their way to form Brazilian hair. Because of this, it’s always important to check the texture of Brazilian hair.

This particular Brazilian frontal is straight and soft and has a density of 130%.

Swiss lace

All lace lays more flatly against the scalp than other bases for frontals and closures, however Swiss lace is typically the best of the best. It’s breathable so you don’t get too hot. The knots are less visible without being touched than other lace types; also, it’s easy to bleach and tint the knots (depending on your preference), and create knots that are practically invisible.

Free part

This lace closure features a free part. This is the most versatile part type, because you can part it the way you want to, middle or side. Also, you can create more elaborate hairstyles without compromising the look or the integrity of the frontal.

Baby hair

The included baby hair creates a more natural hairline, which is perfect for those with thinning hair or those who just want a more natural, realistic look.

Bleached knots

The knots with this frontal come pre-bleached so you can begin the next phase of your customization right away or install and style. For those new to frontals, bleaching the knots is crucial to make it look like the hair is growing from your scalp instead of the lace. Most importantly, it makes the lace less visible.


  • 100% unprocessed, virgin hair
  • Brazilian hair with straight texture
  • Soft and manageable
  • 130% density for a thick, lush look
  • Free part
  • Little to no shedding
  • Tangle-free
  • Easy to style


  • The only downside with this one is that some customers have received their frontal and found the knots weren’t bleached. However, most come with the knots bleached, so it could be these unbleached recipients received the wrong order. If this happens, contact the company—they offer a moneyback guarantee. Alternatively, many simply bleach the knots themselves because they like the rest of the frontal so much.

Brazilian hair

Because Brazilians are an ethnically diverse people whose population includes Native Brazilians (descended from East and Northeast Asians), Portuguese (descended mainly from Western and Mediterranean Europeans with some Middle Eastern lineage as well), and Africans from West Africa, Brazilian hair can be just as diverse as its population. On the flipside, of diversity, there is a lot of ethnic mixture in Brazilians, which is part of what makes their hair texture so universally beautiful—it’s like the United Nations of hair. Therefore, always read the texture type on Brazilian hair to know what you’re getting. This Brazilian frontal features a body wave texture.

Swiss lace

The swiss lace on this frontal closure is medium brown. You can bleach the knots to make them less visible, while some prefer to tint the knots so that they’re more similar to the natural color of their scalp, which also reduces visibility.

12” 360 lace frontal closure

The majority of lace closures are a straight piece that is secured from ear-to-ear; however, this lace frontal is 360 degrees, encircling the head.


  • Unique 360-degree design

  • Brazilian hair
  • Body wave texture
  • 120% density
  • Swiss lace

3. Cici Collection 360 Lace Frontal Closure Brazilian

Best Lace Frontal Closure - Top 7 Hairpieces to Use in 2020 (4)Features

360-degree lace frontal closure

One of the biggest benefits of having a 360-degree frontal closure is it wraps all the way around the hairline (hence 360), so you can wear your hair up without anyone knowing you’re wearing a lace frontal. The base depth in the front is 4” and 2” in the back. Total circumference is 22.5”, which gives you the length you need to tailor it to your head and scalp.

Natural hairline

A natural hairline is achieved with the combination of the 360-degree-style lace frontal with the pre-plucked hairline with flawless baby hair straight out the box. This is perfect for those uncomfortable with plucking or who are new to frontals in general. 360-degree frontals are already less detectable when installed correctly, so when you add in the pre-plucked hairline with baby hair, you get a natural look with minimal effort on your part.

100% virgin Brazilian hair

100% virgin hair means it has never been chemically processed, so it’s safe to perm, bleach, color and style however you see fit. As always, it’s important to take a close look at the specs on Brazilian hair, because texture and feel can vary greatly depending on the genetic makeup of the woman who donated the hair, though manufacturers work carefully to categorize the hair so that, regardless, it always means the advertised specs. With this particular hair, there is a natural body wave texture with a soft, healthy feel to the hand.

Hair quality

Aside of being 100% virgin, this is also Remy hair; that means it’s very high quality with intact cuticles that lay in the direction of hair growth, and can last at least a year if not more when properly maintained. The hair is thick with an overall 130% hair density. However, because the hair is pre-plucked, density is varied in certain parts of the hair towards the front of the hairline, like around the baby hair area, where density drops to 80%-100%. While this may sound scary, again, it’s important to remember the varied density is because it’s already plucked and this lower level of density as at the front where the frontal was plucked. The main part of the frontal remains at 130% hair density.


  • 100% virgin Brazilian Remy hair
  • 130% hair density
  • Pre-plucked natural hairline
  • Baby hair
  • 360-degree frontal closure means you can wear hair up with no detectability
  • Body wave
  • Soft feel


  • The knots aren’t bleached, but many people prefer this as they can A.) have greater control and B.) most pre-bleached knots aren’t always to the customer’s high standards anyway.
  • The only downside of pre-plucked hair is you have to consider your face shape; however, the plucking done on this frontal will suit most face types.

Best Lace Frontal Closure - Top 7 Hairpieces to Use in 2020 (6)Features

100% virgin Brazilian hair

Brazilian hair is a great choice for most women of color, because Brazilians are very genetically diverse people. Chances are, you and your Brazilian donor share a common heritage, at least on one side of the family. The result is a more natural-looking frontal for you. That said, once again, because of the genetic diversity among Brazilians, white women wouldn’t be amiss with Brazilian hair, as most Brazilians have some Portuguese or German ancestry, so the hair texture and feel wouldn’t be entirely out of line for white women either. This is a big reason why Brazilian hair is so popular because whatever your ethnic origins, Brazilian hair will likely accommodate you and provide a realistic-looking frontal.

Being virgin hair, it’s completely free of any chemical processing. This hair features a body wave; if the donor didn’t have a natural body wave, it may have been added using steam or heat. Or steam or heat has been used to give the natural body wave greater hold and more uniformity. However, real hair can take heat, so this is actually a good thing, because it means the integrity of the hair is intact.

Virgin Brazilian hair

Brazilian hair is some of the most beautiful hair in the world. Because Brazil is more ethnically mixed than in other countries with diverse populations, the resulting hair textures that are naturally found in Brazil are both gorgeous and mind-blowing in their variety.

The main populations of Brazil are Native Brazilians (who have the Asian type hair), people of Portuguese descent (who have Mediterranean hair commonly found on the Iberian Peninsula, a varied mixture of Western European and Middle Eastern hair types and colors), and Afro-Brazilians whose ancestors are from West Africa, and have the hair type of that region.

What to look for when buying lace frontal closures

100% human hair

The first thing to do is to make sure it’s real 100% human hair. Some dishonest manufacturers will try to blend in animal or synthetic hair. Not only does this denigrate the quality of your lace frontal, it can trigger allergies or other dangerous reaction. Ensuring you’re getting quality human hair is the very first step to making a good lace frontal purchase.

Raw and virgin

Check to see if the hair is raw and virgin. This means that it’s pure hair that has never been bleached, dyed or processed with chemicals of any kind. Raw, virgin hair is the best type, because it means you have the freedom to change it in any way you wish. You can cut, curl, bleach or dye it, which is something you can’t always do to hair that has already been processed.

Country of origin

Hair used in lace frontal closures can come from all over the world, and country of origin can be an important consideration for some, for a variety of reasons. Mainly, you want to buy a frontal that is 100% of whatever country origin it comes from. (For instance, 100% Vietnamese.) The reason for this is that hair texture varies all over the world. Not all East Asian hair is the same, just like not all African or black hair is the same. Making sure the lace frontal you go with is singled down to one country in particular will make for a more even texture throughout the frontal, regardless of the texture type you ultimately choose.

Another reason country of origin is something to consider is related to the reason above: hair texture varies, as does thickness of the hair shafts and other characteristics which make human hair so unique and variable. For instance, hair from India is likely to be black or dark brown and have thick hair shafts and range from straight to loose curls in texture. Meanwhile, European hair is often sourced from Russia. The hair shafts are thinner, the hair is likely straighter, and it may come in a variety of colors like natural blond.

Other characteristics

It’s important to research the characteristics of your frontal and match it to the rest of your hair so that the overall look is natural and flows well. Most often, manufacturers and sellers will let you know ahead of time what texture the hair is and any other important attributes or characteristics, so you can make the best decision for your needs.

The density of the hair is something to consider – especially if you’re looking at European hair, which tends to be thinner in the follicle than hair from Africa and Asia, which means you need more of it to look fuller.

Check out the lace. What color is it? Are the knots bleached? If the lace is super light, you might have to tint it to something more similar to your skin color. If the knots aren’t bleached, you will probably have to bleach them.

Some lace front closures will have baby hairs. This can create a more natural look – especially if you have to install it in such a way that hides your real baby hair.

Finally, look at the part. Some parts are wide and very defined. The upside of this is it can create a very clean and modern look, providing you’ve tented the lace and applied the frontal properly. Other parts are a lot closer together and a little messier. The upside of this is it can hide the lace better and, also, it’s easier to wear in a variety of hair styles. Typically, a seller will let you know which ways the part can be styled. Generally, it will be a free part or a middle part, or both; even then, each of these options can usually be side parted, depending on the lace frontal’s other attributes.

Tips on how to choose the best lace frontal closure

There are a few key things to keep in mind when trying to find the best lace frontal for your needs. Consider the following:

(Video) DO'S & DONT'S : HOW TO: Apply lace glue for beginners PROPERLY | MY FIRST WIG

  • How long do you expect the lace frontal install to last? Longevity depends on how you applied it (adhesive, glue, etc.) and other factors. The less time an install last, the more often you will have to reapply and maintain it. Depending on what you choose, an install can last anywhere from 4 days to 2 weeks, so it’s an important decision. Everyone is unique, so do your research to ultimately choose what works best for you.
  • Consider your hairline/edges: If you have thinning hair or traction alopecia, go for a lace frontal that can be installed in such a way to minimize damaging. Typically, gluing and sewing will cause the least damage, but this isn’t necessarily true for everybody all the time, so, again, do your research.
  • Is the lace tinted? If it’s tinted, be sure the color matches you. (Generally, you should go with a tint about two shades lighter than your face, but no more than that.) If it’s not tinted, you’ll have to tint it to get the best look. For an organic approach, some people use coffee for tinting lace. It’s easy to control the intensity as well, so you might find it easier to match your color that way.
  • Swiss lace typically gives the most natural look, because it lays flat, though most quality lace is always going to look better and more comfortable than other bases.
  • Ensure that your lace frontal closure is the same texture as your lace and weave closure. Texture is more important than color, because you can always bleach or dye your hairpieces if need be.
  • Make sure the density of your frontal is enough to give the lace proper coverage as well as blend in with the rest of your hair.
  • Always opt for 100% raw, virgin, human hair. Settling for less will not only look bad, but could trigger irritation. If you take care of high quality human hair pieces, they can last years, so this is always a good investment if you plan on using frontals not only now but in the future as well.
