What are 360 Lace Frontals?
360 Lace Frontals are the latest trend in hair extensions and weaves.
360 lace frontals are essentially full lace closures that are designed to be installed along the entire perimeter of the head. Whereas regular lace front closures are installed on only the front of the head, a 360 lace frontal goes all the around the head, leaving a round opening in the center.

Installing a weave with a 360 lace frontal also requires less wefts or bundles. Usually only 2-3 bundles are needed to complete a full, voluminous sew-in weave with a 360 lace frontal closure.
The best thing about 360 lace frontals is that they can be used as a time—saving closure for a sew-in or they can be worn alone to create a natural looking quick weave in less than an hour.

Items You’ll Need:
- 360 Lace Frontal & Virgin Hair Wefts/Bundles
- C-Curve Needle
- Bonding Glue

Take the needle and thread and sew the two wigs caps down using big stitches in a circle around the crown of your head. Next, take scissors and cut away the excess from the top wig cap.
Next, apply your 360 lace frontal and position it carefully into the desired area along your hairline and braid or pin the hair out of the way. Once the 360 frontal is in the right place, sew it down along the outside of the top wig cap.
After the 360 lace frontal has been installed, you are ready to begin gluing wefts down in the remaining circular area. You can prep this area first by spraying it with hairspray, or you can simply begin gluing down the tracks. Start by gluing in the back and work your way upwards. Be sure to measure the track against your head before cutting and gluing.
Once all tracks have been glued into place, it is time to cut away the remaining lace from the hairline. After trimming the lace, you can either use lace adhesive or styling gel to secure the frontal into place.
