Lace Closure vs. Lace Frontal – What’s the Difference?
The difference between lace closures and lace frontals are lace size, versatility and costs.
Lace size---the most obvious difference. Closures are typically 4×4 in size. However, the most common length of a frontal is 13×4, which covers the entire hairline. Versatility---A lace frontal goes from ear-to-ear, which gives more coverage, allowing you to be able to part the hair anywhere and therefore provides more flexibility in styling. However, a lace closure only covers a portion of your head, so it’s possible to pull your hair back without exposing your tracks. Costs---lace closures are smaller and less versatile, but they are more affordable than the lace frontal.
