How Many Bundles of Hair do you Need for a Full Weave?

Posted by Adewale Adejumo on

How many bundles of hair do you need for a full weave? This is one common question we get asked for our hair extensions and wigs on

The general rule of thumb is: the shorter the hair bundle the more volume you get. A 12” will have far more volume than an 18” bundle of human hair. With 12” and less, 1 to 2 bundles can be more than sufficient – because, this length has plenty volume on the weft. Anything from 14”, it is best to apply 2 to 3 bundles. Anything from 20” and up, it’s not unusual to apply 3 to 4 bundles of human hair.

Here’s a quick guide:

10’’ 12’’ = 1 to 2 x bundle
14’’ 16’’ 18’’ = 2 to 3 x bundles
20’’ 22’’ 24’’ 26’’ = 3 to 4 x bundles

Hope this helps to answer that mind bugling question.
