ONYC Closure Frontal Guide | Maintenance and Style Inspiration
What is a frontal? What is closure styles? What does a hair closure do? How do you put a hair closure in? These are some of the most asked questions when it comes to frontals and closures. ONYC Closure and ONYC frontals are some of the best products you want to invest in. They’re high quality and they’re the perfect way to up your game in that classy hairstyle. This blog will be your guide to all things closure and frontals ladies.
What Is A Frontal | ONYC Frontal
First things first. What is a frontal? Just taking a look at the product, you should be able to tell a frontal from a closure. A frontal mimics the natural hairline like a closure would. However, a frontal’s base is wider than a closure. A frontal has a base that extends from ear to ear. That’s the entire line from your left ear to your right.
This product is perfect for ladies with the fragile or damaged hairline. Imagine going to an event while wearing a ponytail, only to have someone point at how bad your hairline is. Yikes! That’s the point of frontals. They mimic your hairline perfectly.
ONYC frontal does just that. It’s perfectly natural. I can’t stress this enough, but your frontal has to look natural. Here’s what makes ONYC frontal the perfect fit;
Features of ONYC Frontal
ONYC frontals have specific features that make them quite different from others.
A Good Base:
All frontals have a lace base. The lace base is in the front of the product and strands extend from this base. I believe when a frontal has a bad base, there’s no point in wearing it. This is because the frontal would not last. A low-quality base equals low durability. The hair strands may come off over time and most likely the lace won’t reflect a natural look as it should. ONYC frontals have a good quality lace that blends evenly with any skin tone while giving a natural look.
A good frontal should have a good extension or hair. The base is one thing, but the strands on the frontal have to be natural. If the base is perfect and the strands are lacking, it’ll make the extension obvious, and ladies that is not the type of impression you want to leave while wearing frontals. The strands on ONYC Frontal are 100% Virgin human hair, making them suitable since they naturally mimic human hair texture.
What Is Closure Styles? | ONYC Closure
What does a hair closure do? What is a closure hair? Closure mimics the natural parting line. Like a frontal, a closure should give the illusion of the hair (extension) growing out of your scalp. The base of a closure hair isn’t as long as a frontal. A closure’s base is a simple patch in the middle of the extension. ONYC closure has a lace base and that ladies, is the most natural-looking closure you can get. It’s also extra comfortable.
What is closure styles? A closure style is simply the way the extension is styled. A closure style depends on the type. ONYC closure varies. The good thing though is that the variety allows a wide range of closure hair.
The variation of closure styles depends on;
There are three types of closure when we talk about partition. They are the free part, middle part, and three-part.
When your closure free-part you part from any side. I personally like this one, because there are more styling options to it. A middle part only allows a center or mid-part. That’s good enough for a classy style. The three-part closure allows parting from three sides.
A closure is a hairpiece like a frontal. It can either be a wig or closure hair. It depends on your closure styles. If you’re going for a closure hair, then expect a hairpiece attached to other extensions as sew-in or glued. This closure style is more natural and it lasts longer. If it’s a closure wig, that’s cool too because with both, you have equal styling options, but a sew-in will be more secure.
There are different textures of human hair, right? Well, there are different textures of closure hair too. You can get straight closures and try different styles. You can switch things up and go kinky. From straight, wavy, and curly to kinky textures, ONYC closure has a wide variety. So, you can get the one that suits your taste or natural texture.
This is just a tip, but if you want a closure sew-in, the bundle (or weft extension) has to have the same texture as the closure hair. ONYC closure always has a similar texture to the wefts.
How Do You Put A Hair Closure In? | How are Hair Closure Attached
You’ve gotten this far in reading this post, now is the time to get that coffee and focus, because here comes the hard part. Installing your closure! You may get the right closure with perfect quality, but if you don’t install it properly, it won’t look natural. Now you know the answer to the question, what is a closure hair or what is a closure styles? The next question is how do you put a closure hair in?
If you’re going for a closure sew-in, here are a few steps to installing your closure hair the right way using ONYC closure.
Step I | Prepping your natural hair
Wash, condition, and blow-dry your natural hair. Then evenly apply a small amount of shea butter or moisturizer and braid into cornrows. The cornrows create a track for the sew-in and make a flat surface for the closure.
Step II | Prepping the ONYC closure hair
First, place the closure on your hair and map out the area it covers before sewing. This way you won’t make a mistake with the wefts or tracking. Then, bleach the knots on the closure for a more natural look. If your closure has a lace base you have to make a bleach solution and apply it to the knots with a brush.
Step III | Sewing the closure hair
Sew in the closure into the cornrows using a needle and a thread. A curved needle, ladies not the one your designers use on your dress. Carefully sew through the closure, but avoid tampering with the lace base.
Step IV | Blend and style
Blend your ONYC closure with your natural hair or wefts by using a straightener to flatten the extension. Then style!
This post talks about installing sew-in, so a few ladies might have questions like; How long does a closure sew-in last? How long does a closure wig last? How long does a glued closure last?
The answer to these questions depends on the quality of the extension. That’s why I’m hyping ONYC closure. The higher the quality of the extension or hairpiece, the more durable it will be.
A closure sew-in lasts up to a month. It’s very secure and looks more natural because it lays flat with the braids underneath.
A closure wig may seem more durable but when you’re always wearing the same wig again and again, it’ll eventually wear out. To solve this issue, it’s better to buy more than one closure wig.
Glued closure lasts only for a few weeks. The glue will lose bonding strength in the second week.
How to Style A Closure Frontal | ONYC Frontal Style Tip
Before and after installing your ONYC frontal, you want to make sure it’s the right texture you want. Here are a few tips for styling your frontal;
•Cut the extra lace on your frontal for a natural look
•After bonding or gluing your frontal, tie a silk scarf around your hairline for three to five minutes. It secures the bond better and keeps the hair in place while styling.
•Always apply a heat-protectant on your frontal extension before straightening or curling.
•Applying some concealer on the lace base improves the natural look of the frontal. It makes the lace blend with your skin tone.
•Baby hairs or edges as we call them, will make frontals look natural, but don’t overdo it. Cut them shorter, and place them close to the frontal. They should be the same color as your frontal.
What Is the Difference Between Frontals And Closures?
So, what is the difference between frontals and closures? These two extensions may look similar, but they’re as different as night and day. The structure and purpose of both hairpieces are different. There are other factors as well.
A standard frontal has a 13-inch width and a 4-inch width, while a standard closure has a 4-inch width and length. This means the lace base of the frontal is larger than the closure. From the structure you can tell the difference between frontals and closures.
A frontal is more versatile than a closure because of this structure.
A closure mimics the natural parting line, while a frontal mimics the hairline in front of your head. The closure centers on making hair look like it’s from your scalp, while a frontal makes that receding hairline less visible. This is also a difference between frontals and closures.
A frontal is more expensive than a closure because it’s more versatile. Price is also a major difference between frontals and closures because trust me ladies, no one will sell a frontal less than any closure.
Ladies, there’s a lot to say about these two products, but they have so much to offer. You won’t know until you try. So, why not start with ONYC frontal or ONYC closure? If you have more questions or suggestions, be sure to leave a comment.
