Closure Wig Hairstyle Options and Limitations
Though many styles work for closure wigs, some will not. That’s why it’s important to know your closure wig styling options and limitations. Let’s take a look below!
Closure Wig Styling Options
- Simple, parted hair: The closure is designed to create the illusion of natural-growing hair in the front. Closures usually come with 3 parting options, including the middle part only, the 3 part (middle, left, and right), and the free part (part anywhere on the lace).
- Heat styling: Closure wigs can be heat styled however you like, provided they are made of quality human hair. You can use a flat iron for sleek straight hair or a curling iron/wand for some bouncy curls.
- Half up half down styles: Half up half down styles will take a little finessing, since the goal is to pull half of the hair up without showing the wig’s wefts. However, with practice, well-placed swoops, and maybe some long tendrils or bangs, you can make it happen.
- Bobs: Bobs are always an option for your lace closure wig. Try a traditional bob, asymmetrical bob, or even a lob.
- Curls: Whether you’re into loose, beachy waves or tight springy curls, you can easily achieve them with a closure wig.
Hairstyles that Won’t Work on Your Closure
- High pulled back styles: A lace closure only covers a small front portion of the wig. This makes it difficult to pull the hair upwards or backwards without revealing the wefts on the sides.
- Intricate up-dos: Up-dos may cause the same issues as the pulled-back styles. Depending on how you lift the hair, your wefts and edges may end up exposed.

Money pieces are highlighted or boldly colored chunks of hair at the front hairline. They come in all colors, so you can choose a color that best matches your personality or wig color. Try money pieces if you’re not 100% ready to commit to a full color job or just want to give the color trend a try.
18. Red Highlights with Custom Layer
Few colors excite as much as fire engine red, but it can be too bold for some. So, rather than going full red, go darker red or burgundy and add some excitement with some well-placed bright red highlights. This look complements any skin tone and tops off casual outfits like a dream.
19. Straight Burgundy Bang

Just look at the above image - this hair is bomb! Lavender hair accentuates most dark skin tones, bringing out its warm undertones. Lavender medium-length hair with a simple center part is a lovely style for shopping with friends or going out on the town. But be aware, it may not be widely accepted in corporate workplaces.
24. Bobby Pin Design On Wig
Just because you’re wearing a closure wig or sew-in doesn’t mean you can’t use hair accessories. Just a few bobby pins can take your closure unit to the next level! You can arrange the bobby pins along the sides, above your ears, or however you like. This creates an attractive design that you can wear to the gym, to the store, or even for more formal occasions like weddings or graduations.
25. Half Up Half Down Ponytail
A lovely half-up ponytail with the rest of your hair left loose looks stunning for informal occasions, like a birthday party or shopping trip with the girls. You do need to be careful to keep those wefts covered on the sides, but don’t let this stop you from enjoying this simple, yet chic, style.
Tips to Choose Your Closure Hairstyle
There are so many style choices available that choosing one can be especially challenging. So, we’d like to help you out with some helpful tips you can use to narrow your choices down. Let’s get right into it!
Your lifestyle: If you are someone who’s constantly on the go, without time to primp and restyle your hair, low-maintenance styles are a must. By “low-maintenance”, we are referring to any style that doesn’t require maintenance throughout the day. Low-maintenance styles include bobs, a curly fro, or a low ponytail.
The occasion: If you need a wig for a formal occasion, you should go for styles that aren’t overly distracting or deemed unprofessional. Styles like the straight bob with bangs, long straight or wavy styles, or the low ponytail will work well. For casual occasions, go for a half-up half-down ponytail, a style with money pieces, or even pink or blue hair - the choice is yours. And when you want to go all-out glam, go for big voluminous styles like bombshell curls, a long blonde style, or super long tousled waves.
The weather: When it’s raining out, the last style you should wear is one that’s so long and bulky that you can’t cover it all - go short. If it’s cold, it’s best to wear a style that covers your shoulders and neck - go long. When it’s hot out, updos and short styles are best.
Your personal preference: When it comes to your hairstyle, you really don’t have to follow any rules. So, if any of the styles seem to be calling your name, go with it!
