People who are going to get themselves the first sew in style may wonder how many bundles they actually need. Before you make a decision, make sure you know your desired hair style, the bundles’ length, your head size and your natural hair’s volume.
Regarding your hair style, generally, straight hair looks much thinner than curly and wavy hair; hence, you may need more straight bundles especially if you wish your hair a full look.
The length of your weave hair bundles should also partly decide the number of bundles needed. The longer the hair bundles, the higher quantity you should prepare.
The average head size of women globally is from 22.5 – 23 inches. In this case, the ideal amount of bundles is three. That is the reason why girls are extremely intersted in 3 bundles and a closure deal for lower cost. For the bigger sizes, you may need 4 or 5 bundles according to the length and thickness you love.
