Nowadays, more and more women like to buy human hair bundles to achieve their natural look and unique beauty. Human hair bundles with closure
have become the most popular hairstyles for women.
One of the most frequently asked questions a hairstylist will receive from a client is: “How Many Bundles Do I Need For a Sew-In? ?”The answer to this question is usually based on a number of factors to choose how many bundles to weaves. We definitely want our hair to look natural and gorgeous, so we want it to look perfect when we wear it. From the length of the hair to the size of the head, these different elements play an important role in the appearance of the final hairstyle. Of course, if you want to use a closure or frontal, the answer will be different.
This article we will talk about the topic you are always concerned about is how many bundles do you need with a frontal or closure.
What Factors Do You Need To Consider?
At the very beginning, we would like to introduce the rules of thumb in the hair industry. When you are choosing your bundles aside from style, the length is the most important thing. The longer the length the more bundles you will need. The hair bundle on the left is 30 inches while the one on the right is 10 inches. If you take a good look at these two bundles, you can see the 30 inches is smaller than 10 inches. That’s because they both are the same amount of hair (100gram) and the longer the hair, the shorter the wefts. To be more exact, they weigh the same, but obviously, if the hair is shorter, you are going to get more wefts. Opposite, if the hair is longer, you are going to get fewer wefts.
The greater the number of inches you want, you will need more bundles. If you want your hair to look thicker, we recommend using more bundles to make your hair fuller from root to top. Usually, 3 bundles with a lace closure or 4 bundles with closure
are enough to make a full head weave, shorter length hair bundles are thicker than longer hair.
The type of texture you decide on will also have an impact on how many hair bundles you will need. Straight hair tends to lay flat while curly or deep wave textures add body and volume. Curly and straight human hair are of different densities. Curly hair is naturally fuller hence you may need fewer bundles. If you want silky straight bundles and your planning on getting a bob, two bundles, and closure are more than enough. If you want extremely thick hair, you would need 3-4 bundles but if looking for extreme fullness an extra bundle would get the job done.
3.Size Of Your Head
You know, different sizes of the heads, it needs different volumes of the hair bundles to make a full head weave. Pick up your tape measure and wrap it around your head from ear to ear to make it fit and determine your measurements. In the US, The average size of a woman’s head is 22.5 inches. If it is more or less than the average size you would adjust the number of bundles. The bigger your head the more bundles you need and vice versa.
4.Lace Frontal Or Closure
A closure is usually 4 x 4 inches, You will need to use a minimum of two bundles with your closure. Because the frontal will cover a large portion of your head you will generally only need 2-3 bundles depending on the style and length.
What Is A Lace Closure?
A closure is a section of hair ventilated in either lace, Swiss lace, or a silk base made to imitate the scalp and give full protection to your hair! Closures are usually 4 x 4 inches and can sit either directly in the middle of the crown of your head. They can be altered moderately to the side to maintain a side-part style. There are side/middle/free part hairstyle closures, and body/curly/straight/natural wave hair texture closures.
How Many Bundles Do You Need With A Closure?
If you’re going for a shorter style you typically only need about two bundles with a closure. So the general rule of thumb if you have bundles anywhere form 8 inch to 14inch, you only need two bundles, if you are going to get anything longer than 14inch up to 20 or 22inch, you need 3 bundles.
If you are going to get bundles longer than 14 inches, like 16 inches to 20 inches, you need three bundles. anything past that you need 4 bundles.
If you want really full and thick, then past 22 inches, I would recommend 5 bundles. I know it could be a bit pricey, but if you want your hair to be really thick, 5 or 6 bundles is what you need with a closure.
What Is A Lace Frontal?
A lace frontal closure
starts from one ear and ends at the other ear while covering the front of your entire hairline. Can be sewn onto an anchor braid in your natural hair, glued at the hairline With an elastic band, or it can be secured across the hairline using a specialty lace wig tape.
How Many Do You Need With A Frontal Closure?
The ear to ear pre plucked lace frontal
will cover more spaces than closure or leave out, so the hair amount you need will vary. If you choose to wear between 8 to 18 inches then 2 bundles are perfect. Or, if you choose a length greater than 18 inches, then 3 bundles are recommended. You can choose bundles of varying lengths if you want the wig to have layers. From 16 or 18 to about 20 to 24 inches, 3 bundles are good for you. For example, if you are doing a frontal and you want your longest length to be 24 inches, then you can get a frontal and then 20, 22, and 24, which should suffice. Hair bundle past 24 inches, I would definitely use 4 bundles. Some of our African American women customers just wearing 3 bundles with frontal for 24 inches, and it looks pretty good, so it depends on the hair thickness and amount you want to put in and that the looks you are going for. And I know some of you want to buy long frontal, and that is not necessary, the hair bundles are layered, the front of the hair is usually shorter.
All in all, I recommend buying 2-3 bundles for a natural look and 3-4 bundles for more volume or fullness. Luckily, hair bundles are a great investment if taken care of they can last for many years.
