4×4 Lace Creates a Smaller Closure Space
Marcus insisted on using a 4×4 closure on this wig. The term 4×4 refers to the size of the mesh that the human hair is attached to when creating the wig. In this case, the mesh is 4 inches wide and 4 inches deep. The lace is also used to give the illusion of a natural hairline. 4×4 closures are smaller than a 5×5 lace closure and they don’t create ear to ear coverage. This is actually a good thing since the smaller closure space means there is not as much parting space also. The smaller lace makes it easier for the model to maintain the wig and change it up at home. Once the 4×4 lace closure wig is created, it is attached to the scalp with elastic bands and a special adhesive.
Professional Techniques Create a Natural Look
Marcus Doss used his technical skills and his artistic eye to create a stunning 4×4 lace closure wig that is easy to maintain and gives his client plenty of styling options at home. Marcus added a new level of elegance to this hairstyle by giving this look some soft, bouncy curls. The curls were created using a flat iron technique followed by pin curls. Once the curl pattern was set, Marcus went in a pulled each curl apart to create the wavy effect you see in the images. The curls add movement to the hairstyle. They playfully bounce on the model’s shoulders as she walks by and they effortlessly fall right back into place whenever she stops. The curls add a beautiful finishing touch to a gorgeous ensemble.
This 4×4 Lace Closure Wig is a Protective Hairstyle
To be considered a protective hairstyle, this 4×4 lace closure wig must be able to assist in the growth and healthy maintenance of the client’s own hair. The wig itself is only part of the reason this hairstyle is considered a protective hairstyle. The features that actually make this a protective style are located under the wig itself. Underneath the wig is an elaborate eco system designed to encourage healthy hair growth while this 4×4 lace closure is worn. The wig itself simply creates a barrier that protects the model’s own hair from the harsh environments of our everyday life.
Creates the Atmosphere for Healthy Hair
Before this 4×4 lace closure wig was applied, Marcus Doss gave her a thorough, hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Marcus followed that up by flat ironing the model’s hair. Then he braided it down so it would lay underneath the wig. He also gave his model a coconut milk leave-in conditioner. The conditioner will keep her hair hydrated and nourished before applying the wig. Keeping your hair hydrated is very important, especially if you have natural hair. These steps make it so that the model won’t need to remove the wig at home.
Keeps the Heat and Elements Away From Your Hair
This 4×4 lace closure wig is also considered a protective hairstyle. It also keeps you from constantly using heat and harsh chemicals on your own hair. Think of it as the wig giving your own hair a little mini vacation. While the wig is dealing with the daily curl patterns created by heat, the wind and elements of the outside, and the smoke and dust of your regular work environment, your own hair is safely relaxing in the perfect growth environment underneath.
