Is She Wearing A Lace Frontal Or Nah?

Is She Wearing A Lace Frontal Or Nah?

One of the primary reasons we wear hair extensions, is to give our natural hair a break from the daily styling and stress put on our strands. Protective styles are the air under our natural hair wings, but can we all let out a collective I CAN'T over the thought of blending our leave-out and edges everyday?

If you're looking for an alternative to hauling out your flat-iron in the mornings, look no further than a lace or silk-based closure. Closures are top-pieces measuring 3.5" x 4" in length, and are attached over your scalp area at the front of the weave to -literally- close it. If you plan to wear your weave straight down most days, closures are a great way to give your scalp some rest, and achieve a seamless look throughout your weave.

Now, if you're looking for scalp protection, but 3.5" x 4" sounds a little skimpy: enter the lace frontal. These bad boys are also considered closures, but they measure 13" x 4", allowing your entire hairline to get its life and rest easy from ear-to-ear. Lace frontals can be easily manipulated to either have a part or kept free-form for when you can't decide if you want that sleek Ciara middle part or that tousled Gabrielle Union look. Don't let anyone ever fool you in thinking the part struggle isn't real.Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 1.10.54 PM

What we love most about lace frontals is that they look natural, and with proper care they can last for years. Don't front, we know you want a frontal. Luckily, Mayvenn just launched lace frontals in all our available hair textures. It doesn't matter if your natural hair is the kinkiest 4z hair texture in the land- with frontals in our straight, curly, loose wave, and body wave hair, you can join in on the fun without having to worry about blending your leave-out.

Still skeptical of how natural a lace frontal can look? Let's play a game. Can you guess which of the five Youtube stars below are wearing a lace frontal and which ones aren't? Take a good look at these photos, then, if you're up for the challenge, take the quiz at the bottom.

      Girl, I'm not privy to the sorcery but most gurus use the elastic band method. They sew an elastic band on the sides of their frontal while attached to the unit so it lays down flat.

      Hi Berlinda!

      We do not sell lace front wigs but you can purchase a lace front and matching bundles of hair and then I can direct you to a local stylist who can help make you a wig.

      You can purchase here:

      And yes, our lace fronts come with baby hair 🙂

    When you use a closure, are you able to style your hair with both a side and a mid part or do you basically have to choose your preference when it's installed?

    • Anayo

      7 December

      Hey Meredith!

      With a closure you have a lot of room to do any part you want. It all depends on how you're installing the closure. Will it be sewn-down or are you using the elastic band method? If you're sewing it down then, yes you would need to decide which part you want beforehand (however, it is possible to create a new part away from the pre-made part, it would just have to be laid down). If you're doing the elastic band method (closure is on an elastic band separate from your install and can be shifted), then you can place the part wherever you want.

      Long story short, yes you can but it all depends on the install. Hope that helps!

    I suffer from alopecia I have no hairline in the front or the sides. I have a little to no hair in the back. My question to you will the 360 lace frontal benefit me if I make the purchase?

    • Anayo

      16 March

      Hi Lavora, thanks for your question!

      A 360 frontal is a great short-term solution for alopecia. I just would make sure that your stylist avoids applying it with glue and instead uses got2b gel. You don't want the glue to further cause an issue with our hairline. But yes, a 360 frontal is a great option if you want to wear ponytails. A regular frontal (you can check out the ones Mayvenn sells here) along with 2-3 bundles will also do just fine if you don't plan on wearing ponytails/updos.

      Hi Mechelle! We currently do not have a list of stylists who can slay a 360, but stay tuned! We are working on something soon that will help you find someone 🙂

    Can a frontal be attached to just cover the front to hair (to cover a receding hairline), but blend it into the natural hair in the back of the head?
    Just wondering if that's an option for not having to install a full weave/wig as long as the textures match of course 🙂

    • Anayo

      7 August

      Hi Lacey,

      I'm not sure if I quite understand your question. Are you asking if you can blend a frontal with your natural hair (no weave attached)? Just want to make sure I can answer correctly 🙂

  22. […] favorite hair option, I get why people are flocking to them. When pulled off right, it looks as a natural as a weave and in some cases, one’s own hair; they can also be a very protective tool when a stylist knows […]
