FRONTAL INSTALL

/ FRONTAL INSTALL

A frontal install refers to the process of attaching a frontal to the natural hair, usually to create a natural-looking hairline and part. A frontal is a hairpiece that covers the entire front area of the head, from ear to ear, and typically extends about 13 inches back. It is often made of lace or silk, and it allows for a more realistic and versatile styling compared to traditional closure pieces.

Frontal install process:

Preparation of Natural Hair:

The individual's natural hair is usually braided down into cornrows as a foundation for the frontal. The braiding pattern can vary, and it is often designed to create a flat and secure base.

Frontal Placement:

The frontal is carefully positioned on the head to ensure a natural-looking hairline and part. The frontal covers the entire front section of the head, from one ear to the other.

Securing the Frontal:

The frontal is secured using various methods, such as sewing, gluing, or using wig adhesive. The choice of method depends on personal preference and the desired level of security.

Blending and Styling:

The stylist blends the natural hair with the hair of the frontal, ensuring a seamless transition. This may involve styling, cutting, or shaping the frontal to achieve the desired look.

Customization:

The frontal may be customized by plucking or tweezing the hair along the hairline to create a more natural appearance. Some individuals may also opt to create baby hairs along the hairline for added realism.

A frontal install provides a natural-looking and versatile option for individuals who want to achieve a realistic hairline and part. Frontals allow for various styling options, including off-center parts, deep side parts, and updos, and they are particularly popular for creating lace frontal wigs.

It's important to note that the type of hair used for the frontal can vary, including human hair or synthetic hair, and the installation process may differ based on personal preference and the chosen application method. Additionally, proper care and maintenance are essential to ensure the longevity of the frontal and protect the natural hair underneath.
