A lace closure is a top unit or small hairpiece that you can customize or buy ready to wear. They can be attached to the skin with the help of a double-sided tape for those with hair loss or a liquid adhesive.
There are several types of lace closures: curly wave, body wave, straight wave, three-part, middle part, and free part. There are also 7×7, 6×6, 5×5, and 4×4 lace closures. Whichever lace closure you decide to use though, you wouldn’t want the lace being out in the open.

Put on your closure and go to a hairstylist to ensure that it is cut in a way that suits your style perfectly. Adjust the lace closure to fit you head well, then secure with clips or combs.

Take makeup with a thin brush – use the tip of the brush to collect a small amount of concealer. Casually brush the part covered with a white-liner using a thin layer of skin-colored concealer.
- 8: Wipe the makeup brush off with a paper towel
You need a small amount of makeup powder that is slightly darker than your skin tone. Brush this thin layer over the part to seal the concealer.
