I find that most girls who just started wearing wigs often have this question: What closure size or frontal size is the best for beginners? My number one answer is a 5x5 lace closure wig.
Beginner Friendly Wig: 4x4 lace closure wig
A 4x4 lace closure wig is the best for beginners because it's less hassle, and it's less maintenance. There's not much you can do with a 4x4 lace closure. It's literally from right here to right here. So you can either have it parted down the center or parted to the side up until like, right here. Unless whoever installs your closure or makes your closure wig has it to the point where you can get a deep side part, you won't have as much versatility with a 4x4 lace closure.
A less hair is being used in a 4x4 lace closure. So if you try to do the half up, half down the little ponytail that you will get from that style, it's going to be relatively thin. So you probably would want to go into a 5x5 lace closure just for that added fullness and added versatility. This is an 4x4 lace closure. So it is literally just 4 inches across and 4 inches down.
There's not much you can really do with this lace piece except for parting it down the center, because you see, if you try to part it down to the side, it kind of curves a bit. I know some vendors give you like, the square closure, but if you're doing like, HD lace, it's going to be like a round type of design. This is a 4x4 lace closure. Some people who like the frontal effect, like to go toward the 5x5 lace closure, which is by far my favorite.
Beginners' Perfect Choice: 5x5 lace closure wig
When you have the 5x5 compared to the 4x4 lace closure, you can see the difference that one inch makes. The 5x5 lace closure is perfect for beginners.
It allows you to part your hair down the center to the side, and you could also do other hairstyles, like the half-up, half-down style. You could braid it. You could put a little like maybe one or two braids down the center, and it'll give you much more of the frontal look that a lot of people like to go for with the baby hairs in the front and all of that.
So, I highly, highly recommend for beginners, a 4x4 or a 5x5 lace closure. Honestly, 4x4 is for like, super baby beginners in wig-wearing. But the 5x5, this is where it's at even for those who are like, experts and all that good stuff. When you want a wear-and-go wig and you want it to look late and all that good stuff with the baby hairs and the suits and all that good stuff, I know a lot of girls that go towards the 5x5 lace closure. So I highly, highly recommend for beginners, a 4x4 or a 5x5 lace closure
Why I don't recommend 6x6 lace closure wig to beginners?
When it comes down to wearing wigs and things of that sort, we also have the 6x6 lace closure.
I don't recommend this for beginners. This is when it gets a little tricky. You have these side pieces right here, that we tend to have to cut so that we could lay the closure down and get that little frontal effect off to like right about here. So if you're not too familiar with wearing or installing your closures, this part right here, after it's cut off, might kind of trip you up a little bit.
You would have to end up, even if it's a glueless wig, you may end up having to spray just a little bit right there just to keep this tab down a bit. But it all depends on how your wig was made or if you got a factory made 6x6 lace closure wig. So personally, I recommend 6x6 lace closures to be either installed or for a custom wig to be made.
In actual situations, some girls with smaller 20 to 21.5 inches circumference head sizes, they are not everyone really fit the 6x6 lace closure wig. But if you are an average medium to large head size, you can definitely go for a 6x6 factory-made wig.
Here is our custom 6x6 closure wig, 32 inch.
I know that a lot of girls love the versatility because it just allows you to have more of a deeper parting space whenever you want to switch up your part. It's easy to do. You don't have to worry about covering the track so much because a lot more hair is used on a 6x6 lace closure.
Is it easy to install the 7x7 lace closure wig for beginnes?
Let me introduce a 7x7 lace closure. It can definitely give you frontal vibes. If you want a glueless frontal wig, I would rather you go for a 7x7 closure or just have whoever's making your wig cut the frontal to about 11 inches just so that you don't have to deal with that flap down here.
And you could still have the whole frontal look, but just not the hassle of dealing with the tabs right here. Because that's the part that a lot of beginners in wig-wearing struggle with dealing with the flap right here. How is it a glueless wig and I still have to spray it?
If you are getting a frontal wig made and you think that you don't need anything to lay it down, lay the lace down, or melt it down, you're sadly mistaken. It can fit right, but that lace just needs a little bit of help to just adhere or lay down.
Put a little bit of lace gel. It acts like glue, but it isn't. It just gives you that added lay, that added melted look without the irritation that some lace glues may give your skin.
I just wanted to put that out there. I have a love-hate relationship with this 7x7 lace closure, and I do not recommend it for beginners.
Here is our custom 7x7 closure wig, 36 inches.
But the same thing that you can do with the frontal, you can definitely do with a 7x7 closure.
Our factory will start producing 7x5 or 7x6 lace closures in the near future. This is perfect because the closure is better.
For those who want just that added versatility with wearing their wig. I honestly recommend a 5x5 lace closure for beginners.
