Before getting your hair installed, there's so many options to choose from that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming! But have no fear! This is a brief break down of the benefits of having leave out, no leave out, a closure, or a frontal install!
Some of your real hair is left out around hairline ( the "Vixen" method allows you to part your hair in four sections for more versatility) of your head to cover the extensions. Depending on the foundation of your installation, you could potentially have a great deal of versatility!
Pros: Versatility, Cost effective
Challenges: Not ideal for women with short hair due to blending purposes
No Leave Out
Depending if you're having your hair sewn in, wearing a wig, or quick weave, having no leave out is a great way of protecting all of your hair! Sometimes having leave-out can lead to heat damage on the hair left out due to excessive use of heating tools.
Pros: protects all of your hair at once!
Challenges: limited versatility
Closures are typically lace or silk based and installed according via sew-in or a hair adhesive of some nature (i.e. hair glue or gel). Indique's closures are lace and are 5"x 7".
Pros: Approximately 6 months life span, low-mid maintenance
Challenges: May not be able to put hair in an up-do (depending on install), delicate
Frontals are a great solution if you are seeking to have full coverage/protection and they provide endless versatility. Indique's frontals are 8.5"x 4" and are available in Curly, Wavy, Pressed Straight and Natural Straight textures!
Pros: Very versatile, full coverage
Challenges: High maintenance, lifespan typically is 1-2 installations, depends on the care of the Frontal.
Well there you have it folks! A quick, super fast, crash course on leave-out, closures and frontals.
