How many bundles do I need?

Here at Nicolle's Boutique (and probably the rest of the hair extensions specialists in the world) we recommend that you buy 3 bundles equating to 300g of virgin hair unless stated otherwise I.e. Clip ins. 

If only that was the end of that question but there's more. It's all about preference and the look you are trying to go for. I usually use a minimum of 4 bundles but I love thick hair and in my book you can never have too much hair, but good hair isn't cheap so lets try figure out how many bundles you will need to get your desired look. 

Lets start with a few simple facts that may help:
  • If you want a look with more volume then you will need get more bundles.
  • Shorter lengths 12" 14" 16" 18" generally come out thicker than the longer lengths 20" 22" 24" but don't worry each bundle still weighs the same, you will just need more if you are going for the longer extensions.
  • Lastly, know what you want the end result to look like and don't be afraid to ask us or the people you are buying from what you will need. 

Quick story                                                                                                                         Once upon a time I went to get my hair done and ran out of weave with a quarter of my head left to go and no hair to be seen. Now you may or may not know what that feels like but I definitely do. It's that moment when you are calculating the distance between where you are and where the hair shop is, what time and day it is to avoid rush hour and bumping into certain people and let's not forget that quick but crucial prayer "Lord I hope I don't bump into my ex, my future husband or my enemies looking all types of crazy. Amen!" 

It's all well and good if you have a hair shop to go to like I did at that time but Nicolle's Boutique is based online and we can't instantly help you in crisis the way we would like to so help us help you. To avoid any disappointment drop us a quick email if you have any questions or concerns and don't hesitate to send in a picture of the look you are going for as we want to ensure that you receive what you need to achieve the look you want.




Some people can use between 600g (6 bundles) to 900g (9 bundles) of hair on their heads. I have only two words that come to mind, Fabulous and Heavy
