Sunny's Q & A: What's the difference between an Indian Hair closure and an Indian Hair frontal?

Q.  I keep reading about closures on my hair forums but I don't understand what it really is and what is the difference between a closure and a frontal?

A. Closures are one of our top selling items online and in-stores.  Celebrities such as Tamar Braxton and Nicki Minaj have been some of our biggest clients who love these because they offer the ability to recreate the illusion of having all of your hair out in a sew-in when in fact none of your hair is left out.  Closures are approximately 2X3 inches in a rectangular shape and they are only small enough just to create about 1 1/2 inches of hair on either side of your part.  Closures are great when you want to experiment with a really bold texture or color that wouldn't blend with your natural hair.  

Frontals are an extended version of a closure in that it goes from ear to ear.  Frontals recreate the entire hairline and allow you to give your "edges" a break or a perfect for women who suffer from traction alopecia and no longer have edges.
