What’s The Difference Between 4x4 & 13x4 lace frontal and closure? 

 

Size: The most obvious difference between lace frontals and lace closures are the size. Closures are typically 4 x 4 inches.While frontals are 13*4 inches.Lace frontals are bigger mainly because they run temple to temple to cover the entire hairline.

Lace closures are smaller because their primary purpose is to close off an install hence the name closure. Closures typically only cover a horseshoe size portion at the top or front of an install.

Materials: Both closures and frontals are typically made with either lace or silk. Some frontals are even made with both silks in the middle 4x4 section and lace on either side.

While silk base closures tend to mimic a scalp more accurately when viewed up close, lace based closures and frontals are preferred as the material lays much flatter against and blends better with the scalp. This allows lace users to achieve not just a natural, but accurate replica of their own scalp.

Versatility: The main benefit of choosing a lace frontal is its unmatched styling versatility. Wearing a lace frontal can allow you to achieve a styling option that a closure doesn't; frontals allow you to wear pulled back hairstyles.

Remember closures only cover a small portion of the front of the install making it impossible to pull back the sides without exposing tracks. A lace frontal covers the entire hairline and will allow you to achieve a seamless style that you can pull back off of your face.

Installation: Both closures and frontals can be sewn in or constructed into a wig. They can then be sewn down around the edges or worn as a removable wig with a band and laid down with some hair gel.

Ultimately, a wig with a frontal will provide its wearer with the most styling versatility, but closures remain the most appropriate option for simple everyday looks (like ones with a middle part) and/or for those who wish to maintain an exact style.

Besides, another difference between the two is that lace closures are sewn into place while lace frontals are generally meant to be bonded in place. While both can be placed either in front or behind the hairline, lace frontals are commonly placed in front of the hairline usually because they are bonded.

Cost:They cost are not same.Lace frontals are much expensive than lace closure at least 30$. Most customers usually complain the lace frontal is expensive, but they don't see the advantages of lace frontals and the potential savings.
