How Many Pieces Of Tape Hair Extensions For A Full Head?

In the ever-evolving hair industry, tape hair extensions have provided both consumers and stylists with a system so easy and quick to apply. A full head of tape hair can be applied in under 30 minutes! 

Have you ever asked yourself, “How many hair extensions do I need for a full head?” For good reasons, this is one of the most common questions the ZALA team receives about our AAAAA grade tape extensions. Not to fear! We give you the rundown on how many pieces you will require getting a full head of long and luscious locks!


How Many Pieces Of Tape Hair Extensions For A Full Head?

20 Piece Pack

Many people often inquire about a 20 piece pack as this is the cheapest available pack. This is ONLY considered a ‘booster’ pack for those who already have tape extensions and want a few new pieces or need extra volume. A 20 piece pack will NOT be enough for any hair type as this will only make 10 sandwiches of hair. When putting in tape extensions, 2 pieces are sandwiched at the root over sections of your hair.  As you can probably imagine, a 20 piece set will definitely not be enough for a full head of hair.

40 Piece Pack

Is 40 pieces of tape in extensions enough? Yes, it is! The least amount of pieces we recommend for all customers is our 40 piece packs. This pack is enough for thin to normal hair types and is ideal for ladies with fine hair. A 40 piece pack is considered a standard amount of tape hair extensions, as many people find they use between 30-40 pieces. This, of course, creates 20 sandwiches of hair. We are absolutely in love with this before and after photo below using our premium ZALA Tape extensions!

60 Piece Pack

Finally, the 60 piece pack. This amount is perfect for those with thick hair or who want to add a lot of overall volume. For those whose natural hair is medium/thick, or have quite a coarse hair type, this pack is perfect. We usually recommend this option when we get asked how many pieces of tape hair extensions are for a full head of hair. This will obviously create 30 sandwiches which are a lot to hold if your hair is not super thick. Our 60 piece sets will create a full overall look with extra thickness and super volume.

Keep in mind that your hairstyle and cut are very important when blending tape hair extensions. It does not only depend on how many pieces you purchase for a full head. If you’re struggling to make your extensions blend or have been asking yourself, “How many packs of extensions do I need,” you can simply have your hair thinned out towards the ends. This can be achieved with the use of layers or specific cutting techniques. Having thinner ends in your natural hair will create a seamless blend and no harsh lines where your natural hair ends.

We hope this helps you determine exactly how many pieces of tape extensions for a full head of hair! For our premium range of European Tape Hair extensions, click here.
