Single Drawn vs. Double Drawn Bundles

what is double drawn hair?

When it comes to hair extensions, there are two main types: single-drawn and double-drawn. As the names suggest, single-drawn hair extensions are made from only a single layer of hair, while double-drawn hair extensions are made from two layers of hair. Single-drawn hair extensions are typically less expensive than double-drawn hair extensions, but they are also less durable and less consistent in terms of thickness. Double-drawn hair extensions may cost more upfront, but they will last longer and provide a more uniform look. 


Single drawn hair is a type of hair extension in which each strand of hair is different in length. This gives the hair a more natural look, as opposed to the uniformity of double drawn hair.

A standard bundle of single drawn hair will contain around 50% full length hairs, and 50% varied length hairs.  This means that the hair will be thick at the tip of the bundle and then taper off slightly towards the end.

As hair naturally grows from our scalp, each of our hairs will have a different growth rate, therefore an individual with naturally grown long hair will have hair that is thinner at the tips and tapers off towards the bottom. For clients looking for a natural finish where masses of volume is not important, single drawn hair is a great choice. Equally, single drawn hair is often cheaper than double drawn hair as less processing is involved in order to achieve the same look.


There are some downsides to Single Drawn hair.  The primary one being a lack of volume. If you have a client who is looking for a glamorous look, you will struggle to achieve this with single drawn hair extensions and will need to trim off a significant amount of length to achieve this look. For example, if you are looking for very thick 20” hair extensions you will only be able to find these in double-drawn hair extensions. This is because the individual hairs making up the extension are all different lengths - with some being much shorter than others. As a result, when these shorter hairs are mixed in with the rest, they significantly reduce the overall volume of the extension. 


Raw Hair


Double-drawn hair is a type of hair extension in which each individual strand of hair is the same length. This provides a more natural look. While it typically costs more than other types of hair extensions, double-drawn hair can provide a stunning, natural-looking result that is well worth the investment.

Double-drawn hair refers to a hair extension in which all of the shorter hairs are removed, leaving only the longer, thicker hairs. This can be a labor-intensive process, but it provides a great look!  The result is a full, lustrous look Double-drawn hair extensions are more expensive than single-drawn hair extensions because they are of higher quality. 💋



Because Double Drawn hair is so thick, you may not need as many strands as you would with single-drawn hair extensions, which can save you money. In addition, double-drawn hair is less likely to shed than single-drawn hair, so you can be sure that your extensions will last. 

Conclusion paragraph: So, what’s the verdict? Which is better, single-drawn or double-drawn hair? In our opinion, both have their pros and cons. Double-drawn hair gives a fuller look and can be more durable, but it tends to be more expensive. Single-drawn hair is less costly and may not last as long, but it can still give you a very natural appearance. Ultimately, the choice comes down to your personal preference and budget. If you want the best quality hair available, go with double drawn; if you’re looking for an affordable option that still looks great, try single drawn.
