So this will be the first time I wear a closure and want it to look natural. 

I ordered the deep curly hair from yummy hair and a deep curly closure.  Just realized that it is lace.Stern Smile
MonetCrochet will be installing it so Im not concerned with it being done properly but I dont want those grids.  Should I cancel my order for the closure and get a silk one from closureaddicts? 

What would you do?

If you are scared to bleach the knots yourself then you can ask the stylist to do it, but they usually charge an additional fee.

I prefer lace over silk because IMO, it looks and lays more natural than silk.
If you're stylist knows what she's doing, have her bleach the knots for you...and adding a very thin scalp colored peice of fabric underneath the closure can also yield a more natural look.
 
Be sure to come back with pictures! Yummy deep curly will be my next purchase Big smile

Good info.  If it lays better and its the same curl pattern I may need to keep it. 

I probably could bleach the knots successfully but I think I have been doing too much research because I am 2nd guessing myself with all of these opinions..lol

Is there such a thing as being over informed...lol

Agree with your post. Am used to hearing about silicon bandaids but what type of fabric are you using under there? Nylon? Dead, I bet not then what? Tongue

I prefer silk. Lace is too much work for me.

I prefer lace. I hate silk based closures and that line of demarcation . Lace and silk seems about the same amount of work, lace you have to bleach knots or feaux bleach and silk bases you'd have to darken the scalp if its to light. So I think its about the same. I just prefer lace. Good luck on your install I know its going to be nice if Monet's doing it.
