It's a recreation of the hairline that is essentially a protective style, giving your hairline and edges a break from the tension of sew-ins.

What Is A Frontal Weave?
A frontal weave is a hair piece that encloses your head. Similar to a closure, but different in that a frontal covers the entire front of your head and hairline. With a quick frontal weave, you can pull your hair into a high bun or ponytail with no problem and with it looking amazingly natural, like your real hair.
1Frontal hair pieces allow more versatility when styling your hair for several reasons. Frontals are made with either a silk base or lace base to closely mimic the scalp. It also stretches from ear to ear and the hair can be parted freely to be worn in the middle, left, or right side. You can also pull your hair into a high bun, ponytail, or other pulled-back hairstyles without it looking as if you are wearing a wig or weave. This is why frontals work great for women who may have thinning or balding edges because they mimic the natural hairline so well.2Lace frontal sew in is very similar to a closure piece that is used when wearing wigs, weaves, or hair extension pieces. The most obvious difference between a frontal and a traditional closure is that the frontal encloses the entire front area of your head from temple to temple right at the hairline whereas a closure only encloses about a 4x4 area at the of your head.
3The purpose of wearing a frontal hairpiece is to protect the hairline from damage and provide maximum versatility when it comes to styling hair extensions. If you like wearing your hair pulled back and away from the face then a frontal hairpiece would be a far better option than a closure.
