How a 2x6 Lace Closure Compares to Larger Closure Options

Why do we love closures so much?

As a wig wearer, I have found them to be breathable and functional, so everyday use is a no-brainer when you have your natural weaves in a protective style.

Luckily, we now have the luxury of choice with closure. Lace closures are the most popular wig closures. According to the size of the lace, they are divided into different categories.

There is a type that works for you, regardless of your diverse needs. A new closure is now in town, and she is called the 2x6 closure

In addition to her, Private Label offers other types of closures, including 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, and 7x7 closure size options.

Today, we will use the 2x6 lace closure as a comparison tool to discuss the full closure range of the Private Label. Settle in, and let’s get started!

What Are  2X6 Lace Closures?

Do you remember those old episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians?

Kim and her black, long hair with a deep middle part. She was among the first celebrities to make 2x6 lace closures popular.

This closure only measures 2 inches in width but can be as long as 6 inches for a deep middle part. It is so slim and very long. It is mainly for women who want to create a sexy, deep middle part. 

If you want a center parting, this type is perfect for you. She is sleek and straight and looks as natural as they come.

If you want a curly vibe, try the Loose Wave 2x6 closures. Thanks to its HD lace, it seamlessly blends with your scalp for a flawless, undetectable appearance.

What Are Some Benefits of Having a 2x6 Closure?

Aside from looking just as sleek as Kim Kardashian, this fancy closure type has practical benefits.

Why is it so long? And then so short across?

For one, the 2x6 lace closure requires less material due to its smaller size, making it a more affordable option than more extensive closures.

Also, the 2x6 lace closure’s compact size makes it easy to install. Even DIY 2x6 lace closures install at home is possible! Its diminutive dimensions mean it can be applied quickly without special techniques or tools. Then, there is the trim area to manage.

The 2x6 lace closure is more accessible to care for and maintain than more extensive closures. Its size simplifies cleaning and upkeep, saving time and effort.

But let’s see how it compares to more extensive closure options.

Round 1: 2x6 Closures Versus 4x4 Closure

Round 1: fight. How does a 2 6 compare to the most popular closure size ever?

When wigs were created, they started with a 4x4 closure.

They are the most popular to date. Private Label has them in numbers and styles—close to 20 options.  The range cuts across different textures and colors, from the Malaysian Straight 4x4 Closure to the Brazilian Kinky Straight 4x4 Closure.

If you are new here, the definition of a 4x4 lace closure means a lace material with hair strands sewn into it, designed to mimic the natural scalp and hairline.

The lace material used in 4x4 closures blends seamlessly with the scalp, creating a natural-looking hairline.

The lace allows for ventilation, making the closure breathable and comfortable for extended periods. How does it compare to the 2x6?

Let’s look at some of the features:

  • Size: 4 inches wide, 4 inches long
  • Ideal For: Versatile parting options (middle, side, or free part) It provides enough coverage for natural-looking parts without being overly large.
  • Balanced Cost: More affordable than extensive closures but slightly more expensive than 2x6.
  • Ease of Installation: It is still relatively easy to install, though somewhat larger than the 2x6.

Round 2: 2x6 Closures Versus 5x5, 6x6, and 7x7 Closure

As you might already deduce, the 5x5 closure is more significant than the 6x6 closures and 7x7 closures, which are larger based on the numbering.

The major comparison with the 2x6 lace is that they are wider and symmetrical. 

The difference in size speaks to the hair’s functionality.

The wider closures allow more versatile parting options. It also covers a significant portion of the scalp for a natural look without being overly large.

For instance, the 7x7 Brazilian Straight Closure is so wide that it covers over 40% of your scalp.

There is no style you cannot achieve with this much material. You can even tie the hair up in a half ponytail if it is a Brazilian Body Wave 7x7 HD Closure that looks just like your hair.

Then, coming down to 6x6, the sizing is smaller, so you might be unable to go with a high ponytail. But you can still make a freeway parting with center, side, and curves. You have a large canvas to work with.

They also come in Brazillian straight, wavy, and deep wave closures.

Comparison Takeaway

    Interesting comparison! I’ve always used 4×4 closures, but now I’m curious about trying a 2×6 for a sleek middle part. How does the maintenance compare between the two sizes?
