The amount of hair you will need will depend on how full you would like your hair and the length you desire. Here is a general rule we use:
12" - 14" 2 Bundles
16" - 22" 3 Bundles
24" - 30" 4-5 Bundles
When purchasing lengths 24" and longer double your longest length so that you have a full bottom. For example, purchase (2) 28" (1) 26" and (1) 24". Closures do not substitute for a bundle, you will still need the same amount of bundles.

What is a closure?
We carry closures in sizes 4"x4", 5"x5" and 6"x6". A closure is used at the crown of your head in which none of your hair will be left out. Closures are constructed to mimic your scalp and if applied correctly look very natural. When using a closure you do not have to worry about blending your natural hair with your extensions. Closures are also a great option for clients suffering from hair loss or alopecia.
What is a lace frontal?
Our lace frontals come in sizes 13"x4" and 13"x6". Lace frontals are ear to ear pieces which allow for high up do styles and unlimited versatility once installed properly. Frontals can be parted anywhere across the hairline.
Which material is better? Lace or silk?
This is a personal preference. We only use Swiss lace and high quality silk material for our closures. We have clients who love silk and some who hate silk, vice versa for the lace material. We will give you the facts:
Pros: It gives a scalp-like appearance when placed against your skin or natural scalp. It also allows for a very flat and easy application that will make your install look very real.
Cons: You’ll need to do some tweaking to lace closures to achieve the best results. Because the hair strands are directly embedded into the sheer lace you may see tiny black knots where the hair and lace meet are visible when placed against your skin. Our lace closures are sold lightly bleached so we do not recommend re-bleaching the knots, this will ruin the closure. You may have to add concealer on the lace material or a flesh tone stocking under the closure to achieve a natural appearance.
Pros: They don’t require any bleaching like lace closures. Because of the light brown silk material backing on the closure, the knots are not visible and mimic the scalp without much alteration.
Cons: While the silk material helps to conceal the knots to create the appearance of a real scalp, every scalp isn’t created equal so if you are of darker complexion and have a much darker scalp, you will need to alter and tint your silk base. Also, this type of closure tends to be a little thicker, which can pose as a challenge with getting a super flat install.
