Choosing the Best Lace for Sew-in Extensions |

The Base

Lace closures and frontals are units that provide the finishing touches to your install. Great for achieving a beautiful look that will keep people guessing. Each are available in two base styles Swiss Lace or Silk Base. Silk bases provide a single or double parting space. Swiss Lace base provides versatility in styling. Whatever your preference is these looks are amazing once installed. Below, I’ll explain the benefits and challenges I faced with them.   

Lace Closures 

Pros – No glue needed (Effortless) used to close a small area of your install. Great for quick styles! 

Con –  Lacks versatility in parting due to the limited spacing.

Lace Frontals

Pros- Provides a natural looking hairline from ear to ear. Great for creating ponytails! 

Cons- Assistance Needed! unless you are a professional stylist. This item requires adhesive in order to lay flat around your hairline. Adhesive is used to keep the lace bonded to your hairline. However, a few things to think about before purchasing. Things like weather, skin allergies, and lifestyle. Avoid: Water – Moisture will loosen the bandage of the adhesive causing your lace to slip.

If you live an active lifestyle or have oily skin, or are prone to excessive sweating, this item holds best with sew-in method.
