Should I get a closure or frontal wig?
If you are new to lace, never worn a frontal, or simply low maintenance, you should purchase a closure wig. All closure units are glueless and very low maintenance.

If you don't mind maintenance ( adjusting baby hair, using mousse, and elastic band, you should go with a frontal wig.

Wigs has a life expectancy of 12 months-5 years. The determining factors of how long your wig last is based on maintenance (how well you take care of it), how often it is worn, and if you process (color) the hair. You can extend the life of custom units by replacing the lace (frontal/closure). The lace will get old before the actual hair.
