How Many Bundles Do I Need With A Closure?

A woman’s hair is one of the first things you notice when you see her. A hairstyle can represent a person’s personality, thoughts, and beliefs. It’s normal for women to change their look from time to time. You may be entering a new season in your life and a new look is the answer. You have been thinking about the latest trends in hairstyle and have been intrigued by Sew-Ins. After reading magazines you have chosen sew-ins with a closure.


So you have finally decided to get a sew-in but you can’t help but wonder how many bundles you need for a closure to complete your look?

What is a Closure?

A closure is a hairpiece that is made of lace or silk, although lace is more common. A 4 x 4 lace closure is a standard size. With a closure in place, your natural hair is braided underneath and is protected from breakage and other damage.


Closures can be placed in the middle of the crown or a little to either side for a side part style. 3 bundles are commonly used when creating a full look but if you want to go to the extreme you may buy 4 bundles. The quantity of bundles that is needed for a closure sew-in is also determined on how long your bundles are. Bundles over 22" is recommended using more bundles for a fuller look. If you are going for a bob then 2 to 3 bundles would do.

Factors You Need To Consider

Hair length is a factor in determining the number of bundles needed with your closure. As a general rule, the longer the length of your bundles the more hair you are going to need. Women have different head shapes and sizes. The number of bundles also depends on how big or small your head is. The average American woman's head size is 22.5”.


Bundles also come in different textures which are popular in the market today. You can choose straight, body wave, and curly hair extensions. To achieve a full look you will need fewer bundles of curly hair like 2 to 3. Straight hair is less dense so you need more bundles to get a full look. 3 to 4 bundles for straight hair is ideal depending on the length.


For short hairstyles, 2 bundles would be enough if you have a 4 x 4 closure, when your bundles are 18” and under.


Before you get your sew-in you need to consider your hairstyle, length, hair type, and whether you want a partial or full sew-in. These factors will determine the number of bundles you need to achieve your desired look. Now that you have an idea of how many bundles you need for your sew-in, it’s time for you to visit your hairstylist and get your bundles today.
