When we get an inquiry from another client who has had extensions sometime recently, we more often than not ask "Do you know how many extensions you need?" Some know precisely what coverage they have yet others do not understand, or what they really need is altogether different from what they think they need. It's nothing unexpected truly as salons and freelance extensionists are utilizing many distinctive approaches to calculate coverage. In this way, regardless of whether you're simply considering having Peruvian extensions connected or you're an accomplished wearer, in the event that you'd get a kick out of the chance to how many Peruvian hair extensions would be appropriate for you, read on.

When looking at the cost of extensions - this implies is how many individual extensions are connected to accomplish your desired look with Peruvian extensions

A Quarter Head is approx. 50 micro-bonds (2-3 lines)

A Half Head is approx. 100 micro-bonds (3-4 lines)

A Three Quarter Head is approx. 150 micro-bonds (5-6 lines)

Full Head is approx. 200 micro-bonds (7-8 columns)

Not following these standards makes it unimaginable for you to analyze costs. A few salons utilize the measure of length included or the measure of lines connected or the weight of the used to calculate coverage.

Length included - a few salons consider including only a few inches in length as a Full Head, regardless of how many bonds are connected. What's more, in light of the fact that only 100 bonds can be sufficient to add bunches of length to longer, Thin/Fine and Fine/Average hair, a few salons name what is very a Half Head as a Full Head.

Rows connected - a few salons consider 6 lines of Peruvian extensions to be a standard Full Head. However, it takes far less hair to assemble 6 columns of extensions for clients with fine/thin density hair than it improves the situation those with average or thick density hair. Truth be told, we, for the most part, find that around 150 micro-bonds are needed for 6 lines, which is in actuality a 3/4 Head, while our Full Head of 200 extensions is typically enough to apply up to 8 columns.

The weight of hair connected - let's be genuine, how might you even know where in the first place this? The weight of every extension shifts as indicated by ethnicity and length, i.e. all micro bond extensions are generally a similar density however Indian hair is heavier than European hair and an 18" extension will measure more than a 10" extension. As a consequence, a 100-gram bundle of 10" hair will create many more extensions than a 100-gram bundle of 18" hair. Unless you work in the extensions industry, how might you even know where to start? We have seen cases of only 30 grams of 10" hair being portrayed as a Half Head. 30 grams of 10" hair creates around 65 micro-bonds, a third not as much as the business standard 100 bonds. Would you know how to calculate this? Obviously, you wouldn't.

Not utilizing the business standard prevents you from settling on an educated decision. Regularly, costs give off an impression of being lower than they really are, it's only at the consultation that clients with Average/Thick and Thick hair are given a far higher cost. More terrible still, a few clients are paying for what they accept is a full head of extensions when truly they are having substantially less connected.
