What is a Lace Closure?
A lace closure is a small piece of lace fabric, usually about 3.5”x4”, 4”x4” or 5”x5” with individual strands of hair ventilated through and knotted directly to the lace. It covers only a portion of the head and proves ideal for people who want to hide thinning hair or temporarily change their hairstyle.
To cover thinning hair, the lace on the unit should blend with the wearer's skin tone before its glued or tape into position. Matching the closure with the wearer's hair type and the color is the key to a natural, flattering look.

Step 4: Make sure that you leave a U-shaped portion of cornrow braids on the crown of your head. This is what you have to install the lace closure.
