You Want a Sew In, But How Many Bundles Should You Get?
Ever wondered how many bundles you need for a sew in? Or maybe how many bundles do I need with a closure, or how many bundles do I need with a frontal?
A few factors go into choosing how many bundles of weave you’ll need for your desired look. The key is that it’s your desired look, and it depends on the length of the hair to the size of your head. Both elements contribute to how the final style will look. To help you make the best choice for the look you want, take a look at the guide below.
All virgin hair naturally thins out towards the tips, so we suggest more bundles for a fuller look from root to tip. A good rule of thumb? The longer the length of your bundles, the more hair you’re going to need. All virgin hair naturally thins out towards the tips, so we suggest more bundles for a fuller look from root to tip.

Waves? Curls? The difference is in the density. Straight hair and curly hair have different densities, which have to be taken into account when determining how many bundles you need for a sew-in.
Curly? **You’ll need 2-3 bundles. With curly hair, you can get away with fewer bundles because the hair is naturally more dense and full. **
Straight? You’ll need 3-4 depending on length. Straight hair has less density than curly hair, so for a silky, full look you’ll need a little extra.
Size of Your Head
Grab a tape measure and measure your head from ear to ear—this will help you answer the question of how many bundles do you need. On average, womens’ heads measure 22.5”. The larger the number, the more bundles you’ll need. If it’s on the smaller side, you might be able to get away with 2-3 bundles.
Frontal or Closure
If you use a frontal or closure to complete your look, the top pieces take up a bit of real estate on your head. Mayvenn closures are 4x4”, which is larger than others. Mayvenn frontals are optional, however they help give you a more natural look without needing any leave-out.
