  • what type of glue Dont use glue
  • glue it or sew it ? I personally Sew it down I sew down all sides
  • behind the hairline or over it ? Just a smidge behind the hairline- ALMOST on top of it
  • how to resemble natural scalp color to the closure's It depends on the material-- you can use cut up knee hi-to give you the right color- place under the closure so its between your closure and your hair
  • what density to get ?.. what density is recommended 80% through out
  • does length matter ? no not in my opinoin- close to the top shortest length- or even a couple inches shorter-- you pay for length so why cut it
  • other tips and advice on how to make it look natural

Neolady thanks for your answers.  I have brought and messed up one closure already and have another here that I haven't attempted to install because I didn't want to mess it up too.

No problem as for the bleaching of the knots- you can do a faux bleach method that the ladies in Lace Fronts do it- you would have to ask them directly, and they also do something with makeup if Im not mistaken they use make up in the part to make it look more natural for them but check upstairs in Lace Fronts to get the information.
Sealing you should seal, with the same sealer for wefts- once again check the lace fronts to see what they use to see their wig-as a closure is just the top part of a lace front wig
to cut down on the line of demarcation- you would want to install a smidge behind the hair line- I mean like almost on the hair line, but not completely there- literaly just behind the hair line
