Everything You Need to Know About Closures!

What Are Closures

Closures are just one type of hair extension. Closures provide the best protection for your hair. They cover your entire scalp, making them an excellent protective style.

Partial weaves, sew ins, and some types of hair wigs allow the hair to blend with the weave or cover tracks. These styles may not be as secure as closures, but they cover all hair and still allow your weave to look natural.

Closures can be amazing and we want you to find the right one for you. We also want you to know all about them. Let’s cover everything you need about closures, from the types to how they are installed, the pros and cons.

Closures protect your natural hair with full-coverage hair attachments. These can be used to add style to your wig or sew-in. It attaches to a base of lace, unlike tracks. This allows it to look like a resemblance to the scalp.

The base is a piece made of lace fabric that has many single hair strands attached. There are many sizes, but they usually come in a rectangular or square-shaped piece that is usually four by four.

These are the perfect weave for anyone looking for a full-coverage weave

Types Of Closures

There are many types of closures, just like extensions and frontals. Closures can be of different types, sizes, and hair textures.

Let’s look more closely at these options. You’ll then be able know all the options available when it comes closures.

Various Parts

Closures can be made in a variety of parts to suit your style needs. Some closures can be opened in one direction, while others may open multiple ways. There are two main parts to a closure: the middle and side. There are also free part closures that allow you to separate your closure in different ways for those who can’t decide.

You can also choose from a variety of textures, including straight, curly, wavy and kinky. This allows you to create almost any style with a natural-looking piece.

Different Sizes

There are many sizes and dimensions to closures. I am not referring to sizes in terms lengths or dimensions in terms color. The base width of a closure is what I mean.

Closures can come in a variety of dimensions, but they are usually 4’x5”, 4’x4”, 4’x4”, 4’x4” or 3.5’x4” or 5’x5′.

Frontals, on the other hand come in 13″X4″, 13″X5 or 13″X6″. Closures, on the other hand, have a lower base.

It is possible to mistake a closure as a frontal with certain installations. This has happened to me a few times, especially if the styling and closure are wide.

Sometimes, you may not be able to tell the difference. You can pluck and tweeze closures just like a frontal. It’s no wonder I’ve seen closures that look almost like frontals on girls.

It can make a big difference to know the size of your closures.

This can be an important step for wig makers, especially if you make custom wigs. Professional wigmakers should measure their clients’ heads. Because they are unique and custom-made, you will be able to charge a lot for this information.

Hair Types

The best thing about closures? There are so many options for textures. Here are some examples of the closures we have:

Kinky Straight is not only available, but also Kinky Curly Closures. This texture is similar in texture to the one you get if you braid your hair and then unbraide it.

Brazilian Loose Wave

Brazilian closures come in many different textures. For those who prefer a looser look, our Brazilian Loose Wave hair closure is the perfect choice.

Brazilian Deep Wave

The Brazilian Loose Wave texture is more loose while the Brazilian Deep Wave closing has a more curled/waving look. This hair texture looks great when wet.

Brazilian Gray Body Wave

Do not worry about gray hair. You don’t have to worry about dying your hair gray. Private Label Extensions has the Brazilian Grey Body Wave closure.

Vietnamese Straight

Vietnamese hair is thick and long, which can sometimes feel very thin. Vietnamese hair is the right choice for you if your goal is thick and long hair. Our Vietnamese Straight closure works perfectly with our Vietnamese Straight Bundles.

Vietnamese Hair is a great hairstyle because it hasn’t been processed. Also, the bundles that can be used with this closure are extremely long.

Vietnamese Natural Wave

The Vietnamese Natural Wave closing gives you a natural, smooth wave that doesn’t require heat or curling. This texture is perfect for those who desire texture between body waves and straight hair. For seamless installation, pair this closure with our Vietnamese Natural Wave bundles.

Russian Blonde Body Wave

Perhaps you want to go blonde but don’t wish to do all the bleaching and hair-lifting. It’s obvious that bleaching can cause damage, so the Russian blonde body wave closure is the right choice.

Spanish Wave

The Spanish Wave Closure resembles Spanish hair. This closure gives you the ability to have Spanish hair that grows from your scalp. It can be difficult to blend your natural hair with specific textures like the Spanish Wave, if you have a sew-in and a leaveout.


Who would want raw hair? Raw hair is better than any other type of food. Raw hair means hair that has not been processed and is therefore chemical-free. Raw hair is difficult to find and Indian hair can be hard to find so it’s a great idea to have both. You get the best of both with our Indian hair closing.

Different Types of Bases

When it comes to closing, there are two types. There are two types of closures: a silk base closure, and a lace-base closure. A silk base has the advantage of being more durable and can withstand the test of time. The closure is usually a little thicker than lace, so it will lay slightly flatter. To give your hair a more natural look, you will likely need to tint the base.

Another type of base is the lace base closure. Lace closures look more like a scalp.

You will need to adjust and tweak customization to maximize your results. This is similar to how you would do with a Lace Frontal Sew In. You can bleach the lace closures like a Lace Frontal. This should be done carefully and accurately to ensure that your closure is not damaged.

Remember that the base will always be transparent so the part will match the color of the rest. Your part will be the same color as your hair or cap if it is below your scalp. If your hair is dark and green underneath your closure, you might consider wearing a wig cap to give your part a more natural look.

How To Install A Closure

Closures can be installed quickly and easily. You can create a closure that looks real by following just a few steps. These are the steps for installing a closure.

Braid your hair so the closure can lie flat. To create a natural look, you want your closure to be as flat as possible.

This is the most crucial step. Make sure that your closure is secure. You can attach your closure to a wig with straps, or glue it with got2b glue. You will need to sew your closure if you’re doing a sewing-in. You can tape or glue your closure down.

A closure can be used in both a sewn-in and a hair wig. To ensure security, I recommend you secure the closure when installing it. To ensure security, you must first attach any hairs to the closure before adding them. This is also true if you’re making a wig that has a closure. This will give you an exact amount of space. This is important as you might not have enough space to sew your closure if it’s done the wrong way. This will ensure that your closure is flat.

Next, add the tracks to your wig/sew-in. This can be done before or after you have customized your sew-in.

Now it’s time to customize your closure. Cutting the lace is the first step to customizing your closure. You have two options: you can either cut the lace straight away or to fit your hairline.

This step can be done at your discretion, but you may want to pluck the closure near the hairline, or along the part. You may also want to tint the lace with a concealer, foundation or a lightener to match your skin tones.

*Be sure to bleach any lace knots prior to doing these steps.

Maintaining & Adjusting Your Closure


It can be difficult to get your hair to settle after you have finished adjusting the part. You can overcome this problem by wetting your hair, readingjusting the part, and drying it with a blowdryer. It will be easier to adjust the hair if it is wet.

You can also style your hair by dividing it and using a flatiron to keep it in place. These techniques are easier than simply combing your hair to the desired part.

There are three-part closures available that can be used with different parts. Pre-trained hair means that the closure already has the parts arranged. It is easier to adjust this way, but you can still achieve the same effect by using regular flexible closures.


Although frontals can be versatile in their appearance, they need a lot of care . Closures that are less complicated to maintain can be a great option for athletes and people who love sports. Although you can wash and condition your closure, it is best to let it air dry.

Take care of your closure by not being too rough. To avoid falling flat , you should not overbrush or pull the hair. This will allow you to reuse your closure for future styles.

Different Hairstyles With Closures

There are so many different hairstyles that you can do with closures. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Bob Life

Closure is the best option if you’re serious about living a bob-life. A bob is not something you play with, but you want to keep it in place. A closure is the best option for bobs, regardless of whether it’s a side bob or middle bob.

Middle Part

Closures work best for the middle part. A closure can keep your middle section looking neat and blended, especially if you have straight hair.

Curly Textured Hair

Do you want curly hair? Get your closure

This hairstyle can cause problems because your hair texture might not match the color or texture of the bundles.

Overall closures are great to protect your style!

Making Wigs with Closures

Wigs are loved by everyone! You can make wigs with any closure. These are some tips to help you make a wig without a closure.


Before you start sewing your bundles, make sure you have the closure sewn down before you begin to make a wig. This will ensure that your wig is created with the greatest accuracy.


Pins can be used to secure your closure when sewing it on your wig cap.


You can’t glue the closure on a wig you make by gluing down the bundles. The closure can be glued down to the bundles. However, you will need a seam hemmed. This will ensure that the closure stays in place. You won’t damage the closure by doing this.


Your head size is very important! When making a wig, it is crucial to measure your head. This will help you ensure the perfect fit for your wig.

This is particularly important when working with clients, to ensure their wigs fit correctly.


To achieve a professional look, customize your frontal. You can also make baby hairs.

Lace Closure Vs. Lace Frontal

The big question here is what the differences are between a lace closure or a lacefrontal. Once lace is applied to hair, it will create a part that mimics the scalp. A lace frontal will be more flexible and mimic natural hairline.

Each has its pros and cons depending on what your hair needs are. Sew-ins can be done with closures. Sometimes, the lace on closures can be heavier than the base of a frontal’s lace.

A lace frontal covers a greater area of the scalp, usually from ear-to-ear. Closures are meant to cover a smaller area and create a natural-looking portion. Closures are sewn in, while frontals are usually glued.

Let’s be real, closures are stronger for warmer weather when it comes down to traveling. They require less customizing and gluing than frontals.

Frontals can slide off in warm weather while closures will stay more secure against the hairline. It all depends on your lifestyle and the look you want. It’s up to you. It is important to determine what style works best for you.
