How many bundles do I need for a full sew in closure?

The amount of bundles you need for a full sew in closure depends on the length of your bundles. 

2.Size of your head

We all come in different shapes and sizes, this can be an important factor.If your head is bigger or smaller you'll need to adjust the amount of bundles you purchase to accommodate that. In the US, the average size of a woman's head is 22.5".

3.Texture of bundles

There are several types of hair texture which are popular on the market, such as straight hair, body wave hair and jerry curly hair etc. Straight hair and curly hair are on the opposite sides of the density spectrum which must be taken into account when deciding how many bundles of weave you'll need.Which means, you can get away with less bundles of curly hair to achieve a full look. We recommend 2-3 for a naturally full look. Since straight hair is less dense, you will need more bundles to get a really full and voluminous style.We recommend 3-4 depending on the length.

4.Lace Closure Or Lace Frontal?

When making a decision about how many bundles you need, it is important to revisit the hair style you want and decide if you want to use a closure or a frontal. If you are using a frontal or closure then you will not need as many bundles to cover your head. Frontals and closures can take up quite a bit of space.  In such cases, 3 bundles deals with closure will help you create a full look. However, if the extreme full look is your preferred choice, you may opt for 4 bundles.

If you are going to get an 8-14 inches, you need 2 bundles, anywhere from 16-20 or 22 inches, you need 3 bundle deals, anything past that, you need 4 bundles. And this is all with a leave out or a closure. If you going for a short hairstyle, you typically only need 2 bundles and this is for if you have a leave out or a 4x4 closure.

The type of hair affects how many bundles you need to achieve your desired natural hairstyle. Straight hair is usually less dense than curly hair, so you’ll need more bundles for a fuller look.

When getting a sew-in, it’s good to put careful thought into your hairstyle, hair length, hair type, and whether your sew-in is partial or full. The kind of hair you get will affect how many bundles you need to achieve your desired hairstyle.

What Is A Closure?


A closure hair is a hairpiece that is usually made of lace or silk, although lace is the far more common choice. 4x4 Lace Closure is the standard size. With a lace closure in place, all the hair can be plaited beneath the beautiful weave or wig and hence the hair will be safe from breakage and other damage.

 

What Is A Frontal?


A frontal goes from ear to ear, so the entire front is covered. 13x4 Lace Frontal is the standard size. That is the difference between a closure and a frontal. Lace Frontal is a half wig which goes from ear to ear and is sewn with approximately 3-4 bundles of hair. 

If you like to pull your hair back then a ear to ear lace frontal will be best for you. If you simply want to close your install with a natural looking scalp then a lace closure will be the best solution for you. And various parting style: free part, middle part and three part lace closures are available for you to create a perfect and natural hairline.

 

What Factors Do You Need To Consider?


 1.Hair Length

the longer the length of your bundles, the more hair your generally going to need. Virgin hair is sold by the gram (the weight), so the longer it is, the thinner it is, meaning there is less hair on the weft to cover your head, because its weight it mainly distributed all in the length.

When you are using a frontal, that would be different, because frontal is from ear to ear, you need less amount of bundles compare to closure, because you’re covering less space, so the rule will vary a little bit.If you are getting a 10-18 inches or 16 inches, 2 bundle deals with lace frontal will suffice. Hair length past 16 or 18 inches, I would suggest you getting 3 bundles, so from a 16 inch, 18 inch to about 22inch, 24inch, 3 bundles will be suffice.
