How Many Bundles Do I Need For a Sew In?
“Gorgeous Hair is the Best Retribution” – Unknown
We don’t want our hair to be one of those problems.
If you’re anything like me, women don’t play with their hair.
You don’t need to think about how much hair you have. You can make or break your sewn by using the right amount of buns.
iLovely Hiar Extensions knows how important your hair can be.
You don’t need to be worried today! We are here to answer all your questions about how many bundles you should use, closures, and other topics.
Let’s get to it!
For a full sew-in, you need to buy the right amount of bundles
Our clients’ number one question is “How many packages am I required for a full-sew in?”
The answer will vary depending on your hairstyle, cut, length, as well as the shape and size of your head. Three bundles are usually enough for my primary sewin. This is the magic number to get your average sew-in hair.
Your weave will look full and flowing with 3 bundles ranging from 12″ to 20″. You might consider four bundles if your sew-in has a length of more than 22″.
You should consider your head size (it is important), the length of your hair (deep waves have long hair), whether you use a closure/frontal and what type of hairstyles you choose.
The basic sew in usually involves the whole head being braided and then finished with the bee-hive. You can leave the hair out, or you can do it as your stylist recommends.
Some people prefer to have two bundles, but this gives them a natural look. Bobs is a popular style and usually only consists of two bundles.
Comparison of Weight and Length for Different Bundles
Bundles made from iLovely Hair Extensions are approximately 3.5 oz (100 grams).
Although all our bundles are the same weight, a 10-inch bundle is always larger than an 18-inch bundle if you do a sew in.
Because the weight of each bundle of hair is the same, it is important to consider how they are proportioned.
A 10″ bundle will have a longer weft than a 20″ one. A 10″ bundle weighs more than a 20″ bundle. The hair is wider and longer in a 10 inch bundle.
If you are using lengths between 28″ and 32″, 5 bundles might be necessary. This is because your hair weight is not sewed around your head but down your back. If you are using very long lengths, the extra bundles will be needed to make your hair look fuller.
What Is A Frontal?
Let’s look at these closures and frontals.
The frontal covers the entire front of your hairline, starting at one ear and ending at the other. It is typically 13 inches long and 4 inches wide.
iLovely Hair Extensions offers a variety of frontals in different styles and hair types.
Goodbye to the days of only three choices:
- To blend your weave with your hair, leave some hair out.
- This is the part that usually breaks your hair from glue.
- Parts of your hair can be trimmed and the rest left natural.
What number of bundles do you need when wearing a frontal and multiple layers?
The frontal covers a significant portion of your head so you’ll only need 2 or 3 bundles, depending on the style and the length.
Working with Frontals and Closures
We ladies are now able to take advantage of the closures and frontal era.
You can also use frontals to conceal hair loss along the hairline.
Lace frontals are used by most women to experiment with different textures or colors.
They want to protect their hair and edges from damage when sewing hair extensions. We recommend that you wear at least two bundles when wearing a closure.
You can request additional hair.
What Is a Closure?
Closures measure 4×4 inches in size and can be placed directly on top of your crown or at the base of your skull. To maintain a side-part look, they can be adjusted moderately to one side.
What number of bundles are needed to add a closure on your sew-in?
Your closure will require at least two bundles. As I mentioned above, the weft will be shorter the longer the hair is.
We recommend purchasing three bundles of your closure if you want to achieve a different look than a bob. Keep the length in your mind!
What Is a Partial Sew-In?
You can always opt for a partial sewing in if you don’t want a complete sew-in with a closure and frontal.
Hair extensions may be more expensive depending on the style and amount of hair needed.
Partial sew ins look natural and cost less than half a bundle of hair. We recommend purchasing two bundles of hair to give your stylist room for error.
Partial sew ins remove a portion of your natural hair, typically the crown and back of your head. Partial sew-ins have the advantage of giving your hair a natural look. They are also more flexible than other weaves for natural styling.
What number of bundles do you need to complete a partial sewing-in?
Partial sew in styles take less hair than full sew in styles and can be made with a maximum of two bundles if you have standard lengths and three bundles for longer lengths.
How Many Bundles for the Kind of Hair Style/Hair You Want
A bomb sew-in is the best, as Kenya Moore said, “Hold on ladies, to your weaves.”
iLolvely Hair Extensions offers more than twenty types of hair.
It is important to consider your hairstyle, hair length, hair texture, and whether you are getting a partial or full sew-in. How many bundles are needed to achieve the desired hairstyle will depend on what kind of hair you have.
Our Brazilian Straight hair tends to be less dense than Brazilian Hair. Therefore, you will need more bundles to achieve a full-bodied look.
You should also consider the length that you desire.
How many bundles do I use to achieve my desired look?
If you desire a thick and full look, you will need to purchase three to four bundles.
You will only need two to three bundles if you are looking for a natural, thin and manageable hairstyle. You will use 2-4 bundles.
Hair bundles can be a good investment and can last many years if they are well maintained. We offer top-quality hair extensions and you will not regret making the purchase.
