My Hair-Experiment: LACE FRONTALS

Hey Bloggers, the past week I decided to do something new to my hair dat I hadn't done, and that was to get a Weave with a Lace Frontal closing.

Now you might be confused as to the difference between Lace Wigs and Lace Frontals, well one is a Wig and the other is half a wig. The lace frontal is like half of a lace wig that is stitched to your weave and then "laced up" (glued) in the front.

Well, after I was done it looked great, but it's been less than a week and my glue has come undone. Also after brushing the hair in several ways to decide on a great parting, I found that I created a bald spot on my lace.

Regardless though I don't think this is a style I will keep for up to a month, it's nice when its done, its great when my hair is pulled in a bun (with all the baby hair slicked back) but knowing that some people know that my hair is a Lace (I might just be paranoid) makes me uncomfortable.

Anyways I will probably save this style again for a BIG day like my wedding day, but not day to day. I mean how do you go from having a normal hairline that people are used to, to one that is very close to your eyebrows (lol).

Here are some videos to help you understand what I am talking about.
