How many strands do you need for a hair extension?
For a hair extension about 100 – 150 pieces are incorporated, for a thickening 50 – 75 strands are sufficient. In the course of incorporating the hair extension, you can check the newly gained volume again and again and thus determine the optimal amount for you. It is important to keep in mind that a lot of hair is lost again by the cut, so you prefer to use a little more strands. More than 150 pieces should not be used for a hair extension, as more than 150 bondings on the head can hardly be accommodated, which has a negative effect on wearing comfort. If you are unsure, we will advise you on the optimal amount for you before the hair extension.
Own hair length, hair fullness – many factors have an influence on the amount of strands
How many strands you need also depends on your own hair. Do you have short or longer hair? Rather fine or already very full-bodied hair? How long should the extensions be? All these factors have an influence on the required amount of strands. In a consultation, we look at your hair and determine the required amount of extensions together with you.
