Where do that knots come from?  In order to make lace closures the hair is ventilated strand by strand with a tiny needle. The hair hair strand stays securely on the lace through a knot.  The visible knots look like tiny seeds. Some people don't mind the knots and many can't stand them.  There's many different ways to achieving a flawless closure however many experts have their own special technique. Take a close look at the pros and cons for each technique.  Some prefer to bleach knots. Pros- When the knots are bleached it gets rid of the seedy look and turns the hair to a lighter color so it appears that its growing out of the scalp.  Cons - Bleaching the knots can damage the hair, weaken the roots and lessen the durability of the lace.  Some like the make-up method Pros- By applying concealer many you can temporarily get rid of the knotted look.  This can make your part look very natural.  Cons - Not everyone's makeup matches the tone of their scalp; therefore, this can cause an unnatural look. Some people like myself have an orange undertone and the part will look brassy as opposed to natural. This technique can be tedious and its temporary its not a permanent solution. Sometimes the makeup gets on the hair and that is not a good look.  Some (including myself) like tweezing Pro - I love tweezing because its an instant permanent solution that's easy to accomplish. Tweezing allows the lace to have a nice clean part.  Con - If you tweeze too much your part will appear wider than natural  You can mix techniques. For example, you can tweeze and apply make-up or you can bleach and conceal. All in all, the decision is up to you and your stylist but my preferred way of getting rid of knots is through tweezing.  We offer pre-tweezed center part lace closures. Click here to check them out. The parts is realistic, defined and no extra work for you and your stylist.
