The parting of your hair can become something that makes or breaks your whole look. Most women stick to one type of parting that fits their face shape the most. So if you are looking for an everyday closure, or just want to take risks and change your parting a little, let’s take a look at lace closure deep side part.
What is lace closure deep side part?
If you are not familiar with the term “lace closure,” let us introduce you to it. In a nutshell, lace closure is hair sewn strand by strand into a lace patch. The patch size is normally 4×4 but subject to resizing. What it does is closing the installation, hence the name “closure.”
Lace closure often comes with a stretchy, breathable base which is favorable for your scalp. The only downside of this is visible knots that require bleaching or concealing. However, this is very simple and time saving to achieve.

Deep side part means the closure that is parted deep on the left or right side of the hair. The ratio of parting can be 6:4 or 7:3, depending on the manufacturers’ wills and customers’ preferences. You can select the best type for you, considering side ratio, hair color, texture, and price.
In the market today, there are mainly three kinds of parting when it comes to lace closure: free part (no parting), three-part hair closures (one in the middle and two on the side), and specific parting (central part or deep side part). While every kind has its pros and cons, let’s discuss deep side part closure today to get a view on whether you should get it or not.
Pros and cons of deep side closure
It’s for everyone
Deep side closure is indeed for everyone. Before you start rolling eyes and think we are scamming you, listen first! It’s evident that this is made for girls with a natural side parting. They already know that it suits their face and wear on a daily basis.
So it should be no problem if you already have a deep side and want to keep it the way it is. Just pick something that matches your hair color and your natural part.

You won’t believe when we say this: Pretty much anyone can pull off deep side part. Deep side parting gives you a fuller volume to your hair, especially if you have thinning hair on your edges. You can use the extra flipped over hair to cover that.
Besides, this is a beautiful opportunity for you to change up your look. If you are used to the middle part that generates a young and soft vibe, or free parting that reveals your small face, why not switch to an edgy, deep side part for once?
A deep side part is suitable for almost every face shape, as it flows naturally around the face. It shapes your face nicely, especially if you have a sharp and square face. Or if you own the perfect oval shape, congratulations, you suit every hair parting style.
It’s easy to execute
Some may question the necessity of having a lace closure deep side part in their house. “I can make free part or three part hair closure in a deep side” – they said. While it’s true that you can buy a free part wig and decide where you would want to part it, it is much more comfortable with a deep side part closure.
When you part the wig yourself, chances are you need to determine the parting you want, then use water or setting spray to tame it down, or else the hair would be messy and unsettled. The work is not finished there.
The hardest work is yet to begin. You have to determine the part by plucking all the hair along that line. Plucking is crucial here – not too little, not too much. If you pluck too small, the hair is still there and cannot form a clean part line. In contrast, plucking too much can make the part look wide and reveal the lace closure, leading to an unnatural look.
It’s less versatile
As mentioned above, lace closure deep side part is much less versatile than the free part or three part hair closure, as it can only stay on one side. So if you are on a budget, buying one free part or three part closure and change the part yourself is fine, but if it’s possible, we recommend you have distinct sets of different parting.

In choosing a lace closure deep side part, the secret is to find the perfect parting for you, whether you suit a 6:4 or 7:3, or even 8:2 parting. Make sure you showcase your best face angle. To find out the right corner for you, look into the mirror, turn to the sides, and see if you look better to the left or the right.
It needs more attention
Just like any kind of closure with a part, if you don’t maintain it carefully, the part can disappear and quickly turn into a free part. So it’s better if you can put the wig on a headstand to keep the form and shape whenever you don’t use it. Also, while washing, keep the hair strand stay in its original direction.
How to install lace closure deep side part?
Installing lace closure deep side is the same as installing any wig. But make sure to mark the parting well so that it looks like your hair.
Step 1: Bleach or conceal the closures for it to mesh with your skin tone
Step 2: Place the wig over your head (make sure it looks good) and mark the parting position on your forehead.
Step 3: Start braiding hair and put everything under a hair net.
Step 4: Secure the wig by sewing in, or sticking with adhesives. Make sure the wig is not visible, and hair needs to look like it grows out of your scalp.
In the bottom line
Lace closure deep side part is something worth considering for all the above reasons. It’s a hairstyle that is universal and easy to pull off, so why not try one?
