Embarking on the journey of hairstyling is an art, and within this realm lies the captivating technique of a partial sew-in. Unlike its full bundle counterpart, a partial sew-in intricately weaves the magic of hair bundles into specific areas while allowing other portions to bask in their natural glory. It's a fantastic hairstyle that provides women with the flexibility to leave out hair for added versatility.
To navigate the landscape of a partial sew-in, one must acquaint oneself with the nuances of frontal and closure sew-ins.
Bundles + Closure Sew-In
A lace closure typically comes in 4x4, 5x5, or 6x6 inches hair block with baby hair. They are available in many different styles, including the three-part, free part, and middle part. Three-part closures allow you to part the hair in three different ways, while the middle-part closures only give you one style option. However, a free part closure lets you part your hair however you wish. A free-part closure hairpiece is preferred because of the versatility it offers, allowing you to freely divide the hair and tie it in this area for partial styling. For example, you can tie a braid on the top of your head.
The Pros Of Wearing Lace Closures:
Lace closures lightweight

With proper care, a lace closure wig can provide a long-lasting and effortlessly beautiful hairstyle.
Lace closures last longer
Whether you're going for a sew-in or lace closure wig, they typically last longer than a frontal, with proper maintenance.

After 2 or 3 weeks, your sew-in lace frontal start to lose their glue and pull off gradually at the edges.
Lace closures protects your hair
With lace closures, you can fix the problem of blending the color and texture of your hair with your weave. You don't have to apply heat or dye parts of your hair to match your weave.

Wearing a lace closure allows you to experiment with so many styles and colors with little or no damage to your hair.
