Closure vs. Frontal – Which Wig is Best For You

by Ericka

Wigs are a great way to change up your look and feel like you’re more than just yourself. They’re also a fun way to experiment with different hairstyles. Suppose you’ve never purchased a wig before. In that case, there are several options available so that everyone can find their style and one common comparison is always between bundles with closure and frontals.

Below is the difference between both these wig options with a clear answer to which one is best for you!

1. Closure Wig

A closure wig is a wig that has a hairline attached to it. These wigs are attached to the head with glue or tape and can be used for covering bald patches, creating different hairstyles, and adding volume to your natural hair.

Closures are worn by men, women, and children alike because they’re so versatile. They come in all shapes and sizes, from long bobs to short bangs; they can be straight or curly and even curly/wavy.

The best part about wearing a closure wig is that there is no more worrying about your next appointment at the hairdresser because you’re never going anywhere without one on hand.

2. Frontal Wig

The frontal wig is a wig with the hairline attached to it. This style can be styled in many ways, making it one of the most versatile wigs available. Frontals tend to have more natural-looking styles than closures and are usually more expensive as well. They also tend to hold up better over time, so if you’re looking for something that will last longer than a few months or years, then this might be your best bet.

Frontal wigs usually come with a parting that can be styled in many ways. You can part it off to the side, center, or even straight down the middle of your head.

Which One is Best For You?

When buying a wig, it’s important to know your options. Closures are for people who want to wear a wig without a visible seam, while frontals are for those who want their wigs to have a visible seam. Frontals also come in two types: hairline and full lace.

Frontal wigs can be made of synthetic or human hair, with either straight or curly textures. Synthetic fibers are more durable than natural ones but tend to shed more easily when wet or dry; this is why most professional stylists prefer them over natural and bonded ones (which contain only 100% human hair).

Human-hair frontals tend to last longer because heat styling tools like flat irons cause no damage; however, they aren’t as durable as synthetics, so they need regular trimming every few weeks, if not months, depending on how often you use your styling tools. The best part about this option is safety since there won’t be any shedding issues during normal wear times like sleeping or exercising indoors where pets/children could chew through strands accidentally, causing cuts/burns due to lack of protection provided by other materials such as satin ribbons used while dressing up sessions outside.


Both of the above-described options are worth buying for particular situations. So, you should carefully select an option based on your routine and style. If you have decided that a closure wig is the best option for you, then you will be able to style your hair in ways that are not possible with a frontal wig. This means less maintenance time and less stress on your part.
