What is a 2x6 Lace Closure & Why We Love Them!

Extension hairpieces give you more abundant yet natural hair, providing fuss-free beauty that you can rock daily.

If you’re interested in extensions, you’ve probably seen the 2x6 lace closure, and maybe it’s intrigued you because it’s sometimes referred to as the “Kim K” closure.

Yes, this closure has become popular because of Kim Kardashian herself. People who strive to mimic her glossy, sleek hair have opted for the classic 2x6 closure, but it has so many other benefits that make it worth purchasing.

Here’s what you need to know about 2x6 lace closures and why you should consider them.

What Is a 2x6 Closure?

A 2x6 lace closure is a hairpiece that is two inches in width and has a six-inch long middle parting. This creates a natural parting that looks realistic while being easy to style.

Since the lace closure has a short width, the extensions lie flat, which makes them easier to wear—they won’t stick out like a sore thumb! This also makes them easier to install, especially if you’re a beginner.

The closure has a lace construction, usually transparent lace closure or HD lace closure, that mimics the skin of your scalp, creating a flawless appearance.

Why Are 2x6 Closures Better?

If you want to have a 2x6 closure sew-in or add it to your wig, there are many things to love about it. For starters, assuming you can only wear a 2x6 lace closure with a middle parting is a misconception.

Private Label offers 2x6 lace closures that have what’s known as a free part. This means you can wear your part anywhere, giving you more freedom to try different hairstyles.

Other advantages of a 2x6 lace closure include the following:

It’s Durable

Since it contains less lace in its construction, a 2x6 closure maintenance is easy to conduct, which increases its lifespan. Follow simple tips to keep your hair closure in good condition.

These include washing the closure in cold water and using shampoo to clean it, specially formulated for use on wigs.

You should also go easy when using heated tools on your lace closure by constantly spraying a heat-protectant spray before styling your hair. 

It’s Affordable

Since it’s got smaller dimensions, a 2x6 lace closure can be less expensive than other closure types.

This helps you stay within your budget without compromising on achieving your dream hair. 

It Blends in With Your Natural Hair

A 2x6 lace closure makes your scalp look natural, enabling the hairpiece to blend in with your natural hair. It has a natural parting space and provides hairline coverage to make it look like a part of your hair.

No one’s gonna know!  To make the result even more seamless, you should choose Private Label’s 2x6 lace closures made with virgin human hair.

This makes your hairpiece more versatile when used with other human hair weaves or human hair wigs.

It Protects Your Natural Hair

Another benefit of choosing a 2x6 lace closure is that it covers your natural hair, protecting it against damage.

You can keep your natural hair healthy by preventing exposure to the elements, such as the sun’s harsh UV rays, chemical hair treatments, and environmental pollution. 

It Masks Thinning Hair and Hair Loss

If you’re struggling with hair thinning issues or losing your hair, a 2x6 lace closure is a great option to help you cover up what’s happening while flaunting natural-looking hair.

It will give others the impression that your hair is healthy and whole as same as our medical wigs collection.

It Can Be Worn With Hair Bundles

You can wear a 2x6 lace closure with hair bundles to create the flowing, gorgeous hair you want.

Private Label closures have been designed to look natural with bundles, so your overall look will always be professional and polished. 

It Can Be Used in Various Ways

Do you want to wear a quick weave, sew-in, or wig? A 2x6 lace closure can achieve all of these hair goals. It’s an excellent base for exploring different hairstyles and looks on a whim.

In addition, 2x6 lace closures come in a variety of textures. Private Label has closures that contain straight, wavy, or curly hair.

And, of course, since the hair is 100% human, it can be color-treated or styled with different heated tools. 

It Can Come Pre-Plucked

In the same way, you can buy wigs with pre-plucked hairlines. You can also find 2x6 lace closures with some hair around the hairline plucked to create a natural finish.

This makes installing the hairpiece even easier because you don’t have to take so much time to make it match your hairline before you can wear it.

You can find pre-plucked lace closures from Private Label. This takes the fuss out of adding a hairpiece to your look. 

It Comes in HD or Transparent Lace

When choosing a lace closure, consider its lace construction. Knowing the differences between transparent and HD lace is important so you can choose the best option for your lifestyle and needs.

Private Label has 2x6 closures in both lace types. Here’s a quick rundown of them.

What is a Transparent Lace Closure?

As its name suggests, transparent lace is see-through, making your scalp look natural. However, this delicate lace is more opaque than HD lace, so you might notice it more if you have a darker skin tone.

In this case, you might have to match it to your scalp with foundation.  One of the most significant benefits of transparent lace is that it’s designed to be strong.

This makes it less likely to experience damage if you wear your hairpiece regularly, such as daily. 

What is an HD Lace Closure?

An HD lace closure is super-fine, creating a much more realistic appearance than transparent lace because it’s almost invisible.

It melts into your skin, blending into different skin tones. This also makes it feel softer, so it’s ideal for people with sensitive skin.

However, since it’s so delicate, it’s more prone to damage, so you must be careful when wearing it regularly.
