What Are 13x6 Lace Frontals?

A 13x6 lace frontal is a frontal lace hairpiece that covers the front part of the head from one ear to the other and extends down to the nape towards the neck.

As the same suggests, the frontal is made out of lace attached to the base or cap, is 13 inches in width, and has 6 inches in depth going to the back, which allows for a deep part.

Two popular types of lace are used for these frontals: Transparent and HD Lace.

Transparent Lace is durable, cost-effective, and looks great with a bit of manipulation from a lace tint to match your scalp. Due to the sheer material of HD lace, the frontal looks discreet and undetectable when attached to your scalp, helping you achieve a natural hairline.

This is our favorite at Private Label!

Moreover, Private Label's 13x6 HD lace frontal hair is made with 100% human hair, so you do not have to worry about its durability and longevity. Apart from the natural hairline, 13x6 lace frontals allow you plenty of versatile styling options and flexibility, ranging from updos to chic side parts or even voluminous waves.

Once you install a 13x6 frontal you will immediately know the difference when compared to a smaller 13x4 or a lace closure.

The 13x6 lace frontal is also breathable and allows air to flow through your scalp and natural hair, which makes it comfortable to wear. The 13x6 HD lace frontals are all the rage nowadays because they are so easy to create a natural hairline with and require less installation time.

It usually takes an hour to install a lace frontal with extensions.

Benefits of 13x6 Lace Frontals

The Private Label babes absolutely love these frontals.

Here is why!

Versatility for Hairstyle

The 13x6 lace frontals are versatile hairpieces that allow you to style your hair almost any way you want while achieving a natural look.

With a 13x6 HD lace frontal, you can try center parts, side parts, ponytails, buns, and more.

It also provides more room and space to part your hair any way you want compared to 13x4 lace frontals or the popular closure sizes like a 4x4 or 5x5 lace closure. We are talking about side parts, middle parts, c-parts, z-parts, and any other creative part you can think of.

The larger size lace allows you to do it all!

Lace Frontals are Natural Looking

The HD lace frontal lets you achieve the hairline you want naturally.

It’s also virtually undetectable because the HD lace blends seamlessly with your natural hair once it is applied to your scalp.

When applying a lace frontal, please consider Private Label’s Extra Hold Lace Glue for extended wear.

We don’t want that baby to lift up during the day! Private Label’s lace frontals are delivered pre-plucked, but you already know your hairstylists will want to break out the tweezers to get that ultra-realistic hairline look.

Everyone has a different natural hairline, so a little tweaking is advised for the best results.

Protective Styles

The 13x6 lace frontal protects hair from everyday wear and tear, excessive use of hot tools, product buildup, and damage via protective styles.

This helps you avoid excessive and unnecessary hair fall, breakage, split ends, and dry, brittle ends.

We often discuss protective styles in the Private Label blogs, and this is the Queen of frontal protection.

These large frontals protect during a sew-in, especially if you have constructed a lace front wig.

Frontal Texture Variations

Private Label offers all the popular textures of 100% human hair 13x6 lace frontals: body wave, silky straight, deep wave, and more.

This allows you to choose any texture you like without changing or damaging your natural hair.

Of course, we also offer the perfect matching virgin hair bundles to blend seamlessly with your frontal.

Frontals are Breathable + Comfortable

Ladies, at some point, you may have felt too hot and sweaty under your wigs and frontals during the intense summer heat.

Well, the 13x6 lace frontals can help you avoid that. Their sheer and fine lace material lets air flow through to your scalp, making them comfortable to wear in all seasons.

You should also consider making a glueless wig with your frontal. This will require you to cut the lace close to the hairline and a little melting spray for installation.

But girl, you can pop that wig on and off at night!

Long-lasting and Durable

The high-quality 100% human hair used in the 13x6 lace frontals by Private Label makes them very durable and can last longer if you properly care for them.

Remember to use a lace glue remover when taking the frontal off and a lace glue cleaner to remove the excess glue from the lace.

Following these steps will allow you to re-apply the frontal and get the most out of your money.


While you may think that the 13x6 lace frontal prices are a bit on the higher end, if you look at the bigger picture, you usually need fewer bundles to go with.

Hence, this makes it overall more affordable. That’s right, you have to consider how much space the thirteen by six lace covers. This is especially helpful for longer hairstyles requiring more bundles for a full look.

It's totally worth the money!

What Makes 13x6 HD Lace Frontals Unique?

With so many different-sized lace frontals on the market, you may wonder what distinguishes the 13x6 HD lace frontal.

One lace frontal that is quite similar to the 13x6 frontal is the 13x4-sized one. Both are quite similar regarding the installation process, the versatility of hairstyles they offer, maintenance, and care, but they have some differences.

Let’s dive in!

13x6 vs 13x4 lace frontal sizes

The lace size varies

One obvious difference is that the 13x6 lace frontal has 2 extra inches going towards the back of the head compared to the 13x4 lace frontal.

This helps the 13x6 lace frontal give you a more natural and seamless look than the 13x4.

The extra hair-parting space goes a long way!

Difference in breathability

The wider the lace, the more breathable it is.

The 13x6 size is more breathable because the bigger lace size allows more air to flow inside the scalp.

More Natural

The 13x6 HD lace frontal is unique because the 2-inch larger lace part allows you to make any deep part you want while still achieving a natural and seamless look.

Trust me, the extra two inches make a big difference.

Variations in prices

Because of the larger lace size, the 13x6 HD lace frontal costs a bit more than the 13x4 frontal.

However, the 13x4 lace frontal will be cheaper than the 13x6 size due to the less material and lace used on it, i.e., the smaller size.

We also have tips on how to maintain your 13x6 frontal that will help protect your hair investment.
