For those who have been familiar with hair extensions and wigs, closures and frontals must be their best friends. With versatility and efficiency, using a closure or frontal can bring you a natural hairline and outstanding look. The special designs of closures and frontals enable people to part the hair whatever way they want to, just like what they can do with their real hair. However, it is the flexibility that makes it sometimes quite hard to decide which is the most suitable hair parting. In this article, Anka Hair will give you answers to some questions you may have always wondered about parting hair with closures and frontals. 

I. What can closures and frontals do?

A closure or a frontal is often used with a wig that is made from several hair wefts. It is placed on top of your head in order to make a natural hairline and by that, you can part your hair in a way that makes the wig looklooks so real. 

Not all wigs can do the same. It is because a closure or a frontal usually comes with a piece of lace. For example, at Anka Hair, we use Korean HD lace – a material that combines all qualities needed for a functional lace – which is durable, flexible and can blend perfectly into your skin tone to create an illusion of the hair actually growing from it. That way, no matter how you part your hair, the hairline will look completely natural.

1.Why parting hair

People part their hair for various reasons. Firstly, faces have different shapes and angles. Some people may have round faces, some have high cheekbones, others have square jawlines and angular faces. Each type of face has its own beauty and an appropriate parting style will help highlight it. Secondly, natural hair always tends to part ways to form pattern and hairlines while growing. Thirdly, it is advisable to periodically change the style of parting since wearing a particular parting style for an amount of time may affect the hair growth speed. With natural hair, people can choose any parting style they want and can easily change it when they want to. However, if you are using hair extensions, it is not always the case. That’s why you are going to need a closure or a frontal.

Frontals often have a 13-inch width which can cover from ear to ear and provide a super natural hairline. Wearing a wig with frontal, you can part your hair in as many ways as you can think of: Center parting, side parting, deep parting, zig-zag parting, ect. 

Closures, however, have limitations. With the width of 2 to 8 inches and the ability to cover just sections of your hairline, closures can only provide certain types of parting. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use closures. In fact, as at Anka Hair for example, closures are provided with 3 parting styles: Free part, middle part and three parts.
