THREE-Part/Center Part CLOSURES VS FREE Half! Should Learn!!!!!
If you are confused as to what the distinction between a 3-part/middle half and a free part closure is…then you could learn this!! I will let you know All the pieces you need to know about each one!
Firstly, I want to say thank you to everybody that has been reading my blogs and giving me feedback! I actually recognize the support. Please let me know in the comments in case you have any questions or requests!!! I like you all!
These days, I’ve been noticing lots of people (together with my purchasers) missing an understanding of what the difference between the assorted types of lace closures are. So listed here are some primary definitions/descriptions of each.
Beforehand Said DEFINITIONS (from “All About Closures” weblog also on my site!)
“What is a closure A closure is a section of hair (about 3-5 inches huge/long) ventilated in both lace, swiss lace, or a silk base made to imitate the scalp and give full protection to your hair! *Update* Nylon closures are apparently a factor now too! They are often sewn, taped, or glued down. In case your hair is broken off, pure, colored, etc. a closure is the best choice for you to keep up the health of your hair whilst you put on weaves. They are priced the identical as a single bundle of hair! ($60-$120) No more worrying about blending, frizzing, coloring, heat harm, or tracks displaying! (nearly too good to be true, proper )
Non-full lace (Beauty Supply Retailer): There are many “lace” closures in shops that aren’t fully lace. By this, I mean they have a particular part that can’t be modified as a result of there are either tracks or too much material surrounding the half. Stay away from THESE! They normally range from ($20-$50). *Update* I have just lately discovered that magnificence supply stores are now carrying closures with legitimate lace material! Just watch out for these phony ones.
Lace closures: Lace closures have visible knots and a stretchier base. It is significantly thinner than silk which provides it the power to put flatter, thus final longer. The swiss lace possibility you might even see on “AliExpress” is a more natural looking lace. It’s slightly darker and barely thicker than regular lace. It’s normally extra costly than common lace. This is the extra well-liked selection almost certainly because of the worth distinction.”
These descriptions and definitions are still applicable & very true… with the exception of this one: “Pre-Parted (Center, Aspect, Three-Part): If the closure is full lace, the half can still be positioned where you want using just a little water and re-parting with a comb. These simply present a pre-plucked, pre-made part to make putting in slightly bit easier.”
Here are the pros and cons of a PRE-PARTED CLOSURE. The cons entail why I’m not too much of a fan of them anymore!
1. Relying on the installation methodology, a three-part closure can permit you to easily change your half from side to aspect (If it is Bigger THAN 4X4)
1. Relying on the tactic used, it can make it just a little simpler for the stylist to install.
2. Makes it simpler for the consumer to “keep up with their half.”
1. For me, these closures do not make putting in easier. They really it much more difficult. It restricts me to one or three set parts that look UNNATURAL. Even when they are installed very well…who naturally has a part THAT completely straight and square
1. It requires the stylist to sew the closure down with the pre-half lined up precisely with the place the shopper desires their part. If it doesn’t completely align then the set up seems unhealthy!
This is MY work! The half furthest to the left is the pre-parted half! It did not align nicely enough with the middle of her head (I’m very choosy) so I had to maneuver it less than a cm to the suitable. As you may see it positively reveals and is highly annoying!!! To realistic full lace wigs fix it, I plucked the half anyway and used a black hair spray to cover the pre-parted half.
1. With three-half closures, you’ll be able to normally see the opposite 2 pre-parted areas after installation.
Although that is BEAUTIFULLY installed, you possibly can nonetheless see the center part together with the other half. Link to this tutorial: https://youtu.be/Rvkff-onUC4
1. I’ve noticed that pre-parted closures are typically extra fragile than free-parts. The world that does not have hair ventilated onto it (the pre-parted area) has ripped several times on me!
So how do you know if you should get a pre-parted closure or a free-half
In my view, the one “down-fall” to a free-part closure is that the client has to strive just a little harder to “keep up with the part” as soon as they depart the stylist. Otherwise, it is extra convenient for the stylist since they’ll FREELY half it, normally the cheaper possibility, and has the flexibility to look extra natural.
I all the time use free-half closures with my units and I recommend them to all of my clients because I work best with those! If I had been to use three-part closures, I wouldn’t be able to make my full wig units with a lace closure look this pure:
This can be a 5×5 free-part lace closure on a HairSewPerfect unit!!! Completely NO depart out! This may be parted wherever you need!
The stylist can still set up the free-half the identical approach they set up the three-part if you wish to be able to vary the part.
It’s at all times best to ask your stylist which one they like. Me personally, I don’t set up closures to where my shoppers can swap the part anymore as a result of I have discovered that these methods make the closure grow back faster.
NOT Everybody HAS The proper HAIRLINE TO BE Able To do this Kind OF Set up Either! Ask your stylist which closure/installation methodology could be greatest for you! Every thing does not work on everybody.
