If you're looking to add length and volume to your hair, bundles are a great option. The lengths you choose will determine how the cut of your hair will look. Some people like to choose different lengths for dramatic layers. Others choose the same length for slight layers. No matter what you choose, you can cut, color and style this hair however you want.

What is a Bundle?
Think about a bundle the same way you think of a pack of hair extensions. Each bundle is 100 g of virgin remy100% human hair, no matter the length. The part of the bundle that is sewn is referred to as the weft. You will need more bundles for longer styles.
Bundles can be installed with the sew-in method, glue-in, micro-ring, or a number of other techniques. You could also convert your bundles to clip-ins after time.
Are bundles for me?
If you've never used hair extensions, you could start with clip-ins as an easy way to test them out. Bundles can be installed by a hairstylist or you could put them in yourself.
They come in 1 really long weft, rolled into the shape of a bundle. Some choose to cut the bundle into manageable pieces while others prefer sewing the bundle into a braided base, by folding it back and forth.
Take a look at our guide to see how many bundles you might need.
How long will it last?
We source only the highest quality hair to ensure our bundles last a long time. From a year to two years and beyond, our beauties use and reuse their hair extensions. By treating them like you own and washing, conditioning, and trimming regularly, your hair will be around for many different styles.
Introduce you some knowledge about hair weave
Double drawn hair is relatively full, and the tail has more hair
Single drawn will have fewer hair tails
Double Weaved: The stitching is good for sewing clips
Single Weaved: Clip-on hair is usually used with the wrong side of the clip so that it is convenient to sew the clip
The curtain of the combined piece will be thicker, and the single piece will be thinner
All our clip hairs are double weaved and WEFT is also combined
Remy: Great Lengths hair bundles use only 'Remy hair' from the French word "remis" which means that the hair is collected with the cuticle layer facing the same direction from root to tip just as they do in your natural hair. This collection process is a critical part of ensuring that the hair does not tangle when made into hair bundles.
Remy's hair goes smoothly and is a high-end product of human hair. Human hair has roots and ends, and smooth hair means that the roots and ends are in the same direction.
Bonds: The bond is the site where the extension is attached to the natural hair. Great Lengths keratin protein is not a glue. It is a polymer compound whose molecular structure mimics human hair. Many other inferior hair weave methods use other polymers that do not behave like human hair which often leads to the deterioration of the bond and causes the hair to fall out. The Great Lengths hair bundles keratin bonds allow the hair to move naturally while at the same time having a stronghold on the hair without causing any damage to the hair shaft.
Cuticle: The cuticle of the hair is the hard, outer layer that acts as a protective barrier for the softer inner structure.
Virgin Hair: The hair is sourced from Indian temples in virgin condition- meaning that the hair has never been treated, bleached, or colored.
Chemically treated: Chemically treated refers to processes such as coloring, bleaching, perming, or straightening hair which weakens and damages natural hair structure.
Depigmentation: The process of removing the color pigment from the hair. Great Lengths uses a gentle osmosis method to remove the color particles from the hair. No other hair extension company uses this method. Other hair extension companies bleach the hair in order to get the color out, this destroys the cuticle and overall condition of the hair.
Clip-In hair bundles: Clip-in extensions are temporary extensions that are quick to apply for special occasions. The size of the clip in extensions can vary from one inch wide to a weft that contains 3-5 clips. They're an option of cheaper hair bundles as they're generally made with low-quality human hair or synthetic hair. Clip in's can be harder to maintain as they can't be styled as part of your own hair, they need to be washed and dried completely separately. They should be avoided if your hair is too fine - the clips will be visible.
Tape hair bundles: Tape weft extensions are semi-permanent and very quick to apply. See Great Lengths Fast Track. Application takes between 15-30 minutes and will last up to 12 weeks. Great Lengths Fast Track is the latest innovation in tape hair bundles and is manufactured with a transparent keratin tape bond. The width of each Fast Track strip is similar to a weft (4-5 strips are the equivalent to a full head of pre-bonded Great Lengths strands) but can be cut in smaller sections by your trained Great Lengths technician. Fast Track wefts lay flat and comfortably in your own hair and are effortless to maintain. Fast track hair is the same premium, ethically sourced, A-grade hair that you have come to know Great Lengths by.
Micro Links: Also known as Micro Loop or Micro bead hair bundles. Micro Links are beads that are clamped onto the hair shaft. The inside of the bead has grooves (like a screw) that grip onto the hair. This can be damaging to your natural hair. Some micro links are metal which is particularly bad and damaging to your natural hair. When heat is applied to the metal rings, such as a blow dryer or hair straightener, the metal amplifies the heat on the hair inside it resulting in breakage.
Weft: A weft is a continuous hair weave that is either sewn or clipped into the hair. Typically it runs from one ear to the other and falls like a curtain of hair from the attachment area. Unfortunately, most wefts are made from artificial hair which is cheaper or low-quality human hair.
Weave hair bundles: Several sections of your own hair are tightly braided close to the scalp. A weft of hair is then sewn into the braid with a needle and cotton. If braids are made too tightly they can hurt and put a strain on your scalp. Weaves are
best for thicker hair because the braids take up a lot of your natural hair. Wefts can be obvious in very fine hair as there is not enough hair left to hide the weft. Weaves are generally made of wefts of artificial hair or low-quality human hair. Pre-bonded hair bundles: Also known as fusion hair bundles, iTip, UTip, Vip. Pre-bonded hair bundles, such a Great Len.
