#1: How to install 360 Lace Frontal Author: alihair, Posted: Wed Apr 03, 2019 8:52 am ---- Are you curious about 360 Lace Frontal ? Do you have questions about these lace frontal pieces and how they are different from ordinary lace and silk closures? Wondering how to install a 360 lace frontal yourself? We are here to answer all of the questions you may have about 360 lace frontals.
What are 360 Lace Frontals?
360 lace frontals are essentially Human Hair Wigs that are designed to be installed along the entire perimeter of the head. Whereas regular lace front closures are installed on only the front of the head, a 360 lace frontal goes all the around the head, leaving a round opening in the center.
When using a 360 frontal closure sewing time is reduced by hours as there is no need to sew wefts along the outer portion of the head. Installing a weave with a 360 lace frontal also requires less wefts or bundles. Usually only 2-3 bundles are needed to complete a full, voluminous sew-in weave with a 360 lace frontal closure.
Below are instructions on how you can use your 360 lace frontal to make a beautiful, realistic pronto quick weave.
Install a 360 Lace Frontal
As with all weaves, you should begin by prepping your Brazilian Hair and extensions. This means washing, conditioning and trimming your real hair. You may also wish to pluck hairs away from the hairline of your frontal, bleach the knots, or dye the lace to better match your skin tone. After making any wanted changes to your 360 frontal, you may need to trim away excess lace from the back of the piece.
Once you’ve finished prepping, style your natural hair in either plaits or cornrows and then put on your two wig caps. Take the needle and thread and sew the two wigs caps down using big stitches in a circle around the crown of your head. Next, take scissors and cut away the excess from the top wig cap.
Next, apply your 360 lace frontal and position it carefully into the desired area along your hairline and braid or pin the hair out of the way. Once the 360 frontal is in the right place, sew it down along the outside of the top wig cap.
After the 360 lace frontal has been installed, you are ready to begin gluing wefts down in the remaining circular area. You can prep this area first by spraying it with hairspray, or you can simply begin gluing down the tracks. Start by gluing in the back and work your way upwards. Be sure to measure the track against your head before cutting and gluing.
Once all tracks have been glued into place, it is time to cut away the remaining lace from the hairline. After trimming the lace, you can either use lace adhesive or styling gel to secure the frontal into place.
