Ok Queen, this right here is what I want my closure to look like. I was blessed to stumble across this thead that's still going stron because I've been wearing lace wigs while transitioning to natural and bc'd about 8 weeks ago. Now I feel my hair has grown out enough to get my sew in and I was debating lace or silk. I think based just on the pics, the opinions, and your pic of course, I will go with the lace.
I don't really want to ask any questions because I'm a newbie but I'm glad I saw this.
Lovin it.

@510Queen your closure look great! When you say your real hair is put away, is it braided down or is it just laid down? I love how it looks so natural at your hairline.

Silk closures all the way for me, I still love lace closures but I hate the bleaching knots and grids
I wear wigs now that I make myself from my wefts and can't do without a silk top and tweak it to the natural density I require, the line of demarcation is not a problem either if your able to match the closure to your skintone, it won't be visible... I'll be posting done pics of my silk tops

Honestly,no offense, but majority of the people i see down here that have silk closures installed have no idea what theyre doing. Some of the members down here need to go upstairs and look at the vets posts/pictures and learn what to do and where to exactly place the closure. Not all stylists know what to do so its like the blind leading the blind with some of you, but yet you want to say it looks horrible and nfake. Almost anything can look horrible and fake if you dont know what youre doing


i do agree. idk if people realize a closure is just a small lacefront
