Here are some of the other benefits of wearing Malaysian Curly Hair lace closures:
Superior Hair Protection
Long-haired girls are no stranger to hair damage, especially at the tips of the strands. Everyday, the ends of your hair take a lot of damage from the moment you brush them or even just let them hang there. While you’re wearing lace closures, your hair will be braided underneath to protect it from more damage and to recover from coloring, heat styling, sun damage and product build-up.
No Blending, No Problem
Anybody who has ever worked with hair extensions and weaves knows just how hard it is to make it look like it is actually part of your hair. During installation, you’d spend a good amount of time trying to blend the weaves and extensions into natural hair. With Malaysian lace closures, you don’t need to go through all that trouble as it is designed to cover all of your hair. It also saves your real hair from a lot of damage from being left out in the open.
Part it Anyway You Like
Ladies like to change up their hairstyles every now and then. On some days, you might like your hair to be parted to the left and on others, you might want it to be parted to the right. With lace closures, you get absolute parting freedom because they are highly versatile and add to the natural-looking factor. The lace in the closure also gives off the effect of normal scalp so you can part away all you like with nobody noticing that your real hair is actually hiding beneath.
Feel Free to Add Some Color
Hair color is a pretty big deal for women, but when you change your hair color like you change your shoes, there’s bound to be some hair damage. Fortunately, since lace closures are not really your actual hair, you’re free to go crazy with color. Most lace closures come in a natural black color which is like an empty canvas for hair coloring.
If you’re trying to grow your hair out and protect it from damage at the same time, wearing lace closures is a very effective and stylish option.

2016 Hair Weave Extension Trend

2016 Hair Weave Extension Trend

Lace front closures are still really popular in 2016, with the lace front devices making it appear as if real scalp is shown beneath the weave hair and not thread from the weave being sewn into the hair.

 

As seen in the above photo, the weaveologist parts the hair to reveal a lace front closure that appears as real hair would. With promises of no harmful glues or telltale headbands, the lace front method of weave installation is a curious one.
The hairline features of such weave installation processes are also improving, with a more natural hairline appearing for the lace front closures than those that have appeared in the past.
As long as the adherents of lace front closures can stand having a significant portion of their real hair beneath a lace structure, which can be itchy at times, the type of weave is very wearable. There are products that have been specifically designed to help prevent and improve itching for weave wearers, and essential oils can greatly help prevent itching and bad odors as well.

Top Beautyforever hair hairstylist Rosalyn LaFone of Touched by LaFone talked to us about choosing the right weave. If you are going to maintain the same hairstyle for two months, you better like it! Rosalyn begins by saying before you choose your weave, you should think about the message you want to convey. “It all depends on your personality, the style that you are trying to achieve and your day-to-day life,” she says. Are you low maintenance? If so, don’t choose a weave that requires a lot of styling. Rosalyn also encourages to look for versatility: “How many ways can you wear this one style?”

Using Beautyforever hair hair extensions, Rosalyn shows us three different types of hair like Deep Wave Human Hair Weave, Brazilian human hair weaves, ombre body wave human hair weave that work for the various personalities and lifestyles of our readers!

FOR THE GIRL ON THE GO

Touched By LaFone
Rosalyn suggests straight hair by Beautyforever hair. But go for the Peruvian if you want a thicker look.

“With straight hair you don’t have to do much to it but comb it and brush it. It’s less maintenance!” Rosalyn assures.

Another benefit of straight hair is that you can create curly and wavy styles, and have a lot of versatility very easily.

If you are getting a weave for the first time, go for something you are used to in terms of length. If you hair is shorter, try a 10 or 12-inch hair extension. “I’d go no longer than 14 inches for a first-time weave wearer,” advises Rosalyn. A bob style is an easy first-time style to try, beauties!

Remember: It’s not just putting in a weave, you also must maintain and take care of your hair underneath.

“You have to go back and visit your hairstylist. You have to get it washed, get it treated, get your scalp taken care of,” Rosalyn recommends.

Put oil in your scalp to keep it nutrient-rich and moisturized. Rosalyn’s favorite oil is Taliah Waajid African Healing Oyl (Black Earth Products). “Look for products that are packaged in cone tops,” she adds. “It’s easier for the products to get in between your braids and tracks and directly onto your scalp”.

A weave doesn’t always have to be a “hairy” situation.

What is a Lace Closure? Brazilian Lace Closures

Lace Closures are a fairly popular item for women who care about their hair. The flexibility and versatility of closures makes them applicable for just about all types of hair, whether natural, scanty, permed or the less thrilling receding hairline. Our natural hair doesn’t always blend well with foreign textures; for instance Brazilian or Indian, and as a result, some weaves tend to reveal breakage, bald spots and thinned edges: closures can be used effectively to prevent such occurrences.
We answer the question, What is a Lace Frontal Hair Closure?
If you know what to look for in Lace closures, you will have an easier time at the beauty salon. Here are some facts and tips about closures you should know about:
  • A lot of women tend to confuse frontals with lace closures. Closures are not frontals; however, frontals can be considered closures. Lace frontals are basically a hairpiece which mimics a person’s hairline, covering it up from ear to ear.
  • Sewn-in or bonded weaves usually require lace closures to cover the top area where the track hair or weaving hair gets sewn/bonded down. This process often creates an area called the “horseshoe” where some hair gets left out. Closures can be used to cover up that area and add some decorative style to enhance the weave.
  • Silk Base Brazilian Hair Closures

    A silk base that comes with individual strands as opposed to wefts and offers more styling options. It also comes in a thick fabric which lasts longer than that of lace but it also has a more visible demarcation line (the area of the hard where the skin and closure meet together). Silk closures have barely visible knots which come in high density and rarely need bleaching and they also allow ventilation in the hair.

    Monofilament Body Wave closure:

It’s essentially a mesh which happens to be the most durable type of closure and is applied in a single-strand method, hence the name mono-filament. It is perfect for stiffer hairstyles with full bangs because it maintains the original shape without much effort. The mesh creates a natural-looking transparent base which happens to be transparent and makes the scalp look better.
Skin-polyurethane closure: comes in a thin, flexible silicone base which tends to create the illusion of a natural scalp. It is not durable though, and it doesn’t let air in so it would not be ideal in hotter climates.

Combination/Hybrid brazilian hair bundles with closure:

Uses the longevity of monofilament and combines it with lace so as to create a natural-looking hairline. Hybrid closures come in high density especially in the portion with monofilaments and the lace when combined with flesh-tone silk creates a more natural look.

Invisible Part Brazilian lace Closure:

This type of closure involves wefted hair sewn into a mesh base. It usually comes in an oblong shape and can be fitted in at an angle, where the depth of part can be manipulated without including the hairline.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BRAZILIAN, INDIAN, MALAYSIAN AND PERUVIAN HAIR??

1.jpg

Brazilian Hair

Brazilian hair is the most popular hair type in South Africa. The hair is typically soft, relatively thick and very durable. For this reason the hair is suited to any style so it is always a great option whether you prefer a straight, wavy or curly style. Brazilian hair also handles colour extremely well so if you buy Virgin Brazilian hair you can colour the hair to any colour you like. Due to the natural density the hair has it is also less likely to frizz which is a big plus and you can also use fewer bundles to still maintain a full look.

Malaysian Hair

Malaysian hair has become very popular especially amongst international and South African celebrities. The hair has a very luxurious feel to it and has a great natural shine. The shine is however not excessive and after a few washes looks even more natural. The hair is very strong and for this reason holds curls extremely well. If you want to experiment with fabulous and regular curling of your hair then this is a great option. The hair is generally a nice dark brown colour. Like Brazilian hair it also handles colour well so if you buy Virgin Malaysian hair you can colour the hair to any colour or combination of colours you like.

Peruvian Hair

Peruvian hair has become extremely popular. This hair is extremely durable and versatile and for this reason allows you to style and curl it repeatedly with great results. This makes Peruvian hair a great multi-purpose hair as you can constantly change your look and style without damaging the hair too much. The hair is extremely soft and slightly silkier than Brazilian hair. As Peruvian hair is still relatively rare it is also usually relatively more expensive than other hair types.

Indian Hair

Indian hair is very high quality hair and is highly regarded in the beauty industry. The hair is very light, airy, full of bounce and easy to style. Indian hair usually comes in a natural straight and natural wave style. If you are looking for a natural wave style then this is the hair for you. Indian hair is also very popular because it does not tangle, shed easily or lose its natural wavy look.

Lace front wigs have several benefits over traditional weaves and braiding techniques. The greatest benefit comes from the cap design “lace” base of the wig, which is designed to make it appear as though the hair is growing directly from your scalp.
This innovative design means no more blending issues, no more covering tracks, and best of all, the versatility of being able to wear your hair in any style you can imagine.
Styles that are impossible with traditional weaving methods such as high ponytails, corn rows, and twists can be achieved with a whole lace wig.

Also, because all of your own hair is tucked safely away beneath the wig, it is possible to maintain healthy hair care and growth for your own hair, avoiding heating utensils and the wear and tear of daily styling – all while maintaining a fabulous, natural look.

8 Ways To Make Your Halloween Wig Look Real

8 Ways To Make Your Halloween Wig Look Real 


Ah, Halloween. The annual chance to be someone else, if only for a night. One of the easiest ways to go incognito? Throwing on a wig, which can take you from pin-straight brunette to Natalie Portman in Closer real quick. But not all wigs are created equal…

Whether you’re splurging on a human hair piece or just want to make your synthetic wig look as real as possible, it’s all about customization and having the right tricks up your sleeve.

For a crash course, I went to Bumble and bumble’s downtown salon, where their stylists decoded exactly how to tailor a wig by helping me customize a wig in advance of Halloween. (Spoiler: I’m doing a tribute to his late majesty David Bowie.)

Here exactly what you need to do, real or synthetic:

1.Shop at a hair store instead of costume store. Whether they’re year-round or a seasonal pop-up, costume shops will overcharge for wigs. Beauty supply stores that sell wigs will be your best bet for a solid quality-to-price ratio.

2.Cut or trim it. “Out of box, wigs often don’t have a great cut,” explains Bumble and bumble Stylist Mischa G. “You should be cutting or trimming them to the best of your ability.” Or, take it to a pro stylist.

Lauren Valenti
Mischa recommends using thinning AKA “training wheels” scissors as they yield a softer a effect. And give you more wiggle room for trial and error.

3.Dye it a different color. “If you’re planning on buying a wig and having a colorist color it for Halloween, look for one with natural hair fibers–you will also be able to heat style natural hair versus burning a synthetic wig,” explains Bb.colorist Luis Ayala, adding that blonde wigs will be the easiest to color and tone.

Design by Betsy Farrell
Beginning with the aforementioned, Ayala primed the wig to remove any buildup, product, or silicone since wigs are always pre-treated. And since there was no heat from the scalp, he used a more intense dye than normal to acheive the same vividness in color.

4.Tweeze the center part. Off-the-shelf wigs have eerily-perfect center parts and hairlines. To make yours look more natural, use tweezers to pluck out random strands.

5.Add powder to get rid of plastic-y shine. Real or synthetic, wigs often come with an unnatural shine. You can counter this by misting on dry shampoo or applying other kinds of hair powder, says Mischa.

6.Don’t use just any brush. If you’ve worn a wig before, you know that it can get just as tangled, if not more, than your actual hair. To gently detangle, look to a wide-tooth wet brush, which will be most gentle. The Sheila Stotts Removal Brush will not steer you wrong.

7.Style it with heat…or steam. If it’s a human hair wig, straighteners and curling irons are fair game. If not? We have a PSA: Do not use hot tools on synthetic wigs. We repeat, do not use hot tools on synthetic wigs. It will fry the fibers and there’s no coming back from it.

You can, however, use a handheld steamer to smooth our kinks. “Use a brush in tandem with a steamer as you would a blow dryer,” she says. “Or, set the hair in curlers, then go over it with a steamer. Just make sure the wig is completely dry before you take out the rollers.”

8.Add oomph with product. Synthetic and especially healthy human hair wigs will both need a boost in the volume department. If you’re starting off with wet human hair, blow dry a soft thickening spray (try Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray) into it.

After prepping the base on your human hair, or if you’re beginning to style synthetic hair, look to a flexible spray like Bumble and bumble’s Spray de Mode Flexible Hold Hairspray, then a setting spray like Bumble and bumble Bb. Strong Finish Firm Hold Hairspray.
