Styling Ideas with 2x6 Lace Closures: Inspiration and Tips

The 2x6 lace closures are often associated with Kim Kardashian’s classic middle-part sleek look and are often labeled as the ‘Kim K closure.’

After all, who doesn’t want to look like the fashion icon and It girl that the Kardashian-Jenners have been for many years?

The Kim Kardashian signature look can be easily achieved using the 2x6 lace closure, as the lace part extends 6 inches to the back, allowing the hair to follow down naturally and seamlessly on both sides.

The 2x6 lace closures can help you achieve that chic, classic, sleek, and straight hair look with a deep part down the middle effortlessly and with a touch of celebrity glamour—just like Kim Kardashian herself.

Let’s dive into the many versatile styling ideas offered by the 2x6 lace closures.

But first, How to Make Your Lace Closure Look Natural

Here are some tips to make your 2x6 lace closures look natural:

Choose the Right Lace Closure

Select a high-quality lace closure in the right color and texture closer to your natural hair to achieve a more seamless and natural look.

Private Label offers both Transparent Lace Closures & HD Lace Closures.

The HD will give a more realistic look, while the transparent will be more durable and require additional Lace Tint Spray or makeup to hide the lace.

Choose the Color that Matches Your Skin Tone

An HD lace closure blends easily into your scalp and is often virtually undetectable giving your scalp a more realistic and natural look.

This is our recommended choice, but you can work with the transparent lace if you are on a budget.

Trim Off the Excess Lace

Trimming extensions and cutting off the excess lace fabric at the front and only leaving about 1.25 inches of the lace strip can give you a more natural look.

You need to leave some lace to the application. Also, consider an angled cut of the lace if you will not use glue but a tape adhesive for application.

Hide All of Your Own Hair

To achieve a more natural look, hide all your hair before you install the 2x6 lace closure. You can do this by putting your hair in a cornrow braid or simply pinning your hair down against your scalp if your hair is short.

The goal here is to get a smooth surface before installing the lace closure.

Try Baby Powder

If the lace closure is too shiny and makes your scalp look unnatural, lightly dust it with baby powder and brush it out until the hair on the lace closure looks natural and dark.

Using a wide-tooth comb can help reduce pulling and tugging on your hair closure and help protect it.

Now that you know how to make your 2x6 lace closures look more natural and blend in seamlessly with your natural hair, let’s chat about some hair styling ideas and hairstyles you can achieve with the 2x6 lace closures.

Styling Ideas with 2x6 Lace Closures

We are here to talk about styling ideas, right? Let’s get into it!

The Iconic Kim K Hair

This is the simplest yet chic and classic hairstyle you can achieve using a 2x6 lace closure.

A straight, sleek look with a deep middle part can never go wrong. Brush down any flyaways after installing your 2x6 lace closure, and use a good-quality flat iron to get your strand as sleek and straight as possible for the iconic Kim K look.

Slight Side Part

Yes, the 2x6 is primarily suitable for the deep middle part hairstyles, but you can still achieve a slight side part look.

To do this, gently pull the closure to the preferred side where you want the part and secure the side part with a lace closure-friendly styling product.

This will give your lace closure a bit more hold while still maintaining the natural and seamless look.

You can also have a custom wig made with a 2x6 closure and have the closure installed on the left or right side for a deep part.

This is for someone who doesn’t want to manage a lot of lace. Otherwise, we recommend using a 5x5 HD Closure or even a 7x7 HD Closure for maximum flexibility.

Wavy Glam

Even though the 2x6 lace closures are often associated with sleek and straight here, that doesn’t mean you can’t get glam waves and have fun with your looks!

You can get 100% human hair 2x6 lace closure from Private Label Extensions in Body Wave Closures and Deep Wave Closures styles.

If you want to style your waves yourself, you can even use a curling hair iron to add waves to your lace closure. Glamorous waves are perfect for an evening look or night out, ladies!

Low Ponytail

You can even rock a low ponytail using a 2x6 lace closure! Simply install the lace closure and blend it seamlessly with your natural hair.

Next, gather your hair at the nape of your neck and tie it with an elastic band or hair tie of your choice.

This simple yet effortlessly chic hairstyle can be worn day and night, whichever way you want; the possibilities are endless! Need some additional length and volume for your ponytail?

Private Label has you covered with our real hair ponytail extensions. Having one of these matching color ponytails in your closet is always good!

Half Up Half Down Hairstyle

After installing your 2x6 lace closure and blending it seamlessly into your natural hair, section off the top half of your hair and pull it into a ponytail by securing it with an elastic band or hair tie.

Leave the rest of the bottom half of the hair down. You can achieve this look with either straight or wavy hair; the preference is totally up to you.

This style is the best of both worlds. It can be worn both day and evening for formal or casual occasions.

It helps keep hair out of the face but also allows you to have some length if you prefer leaving your hair down.
