Light to Medium Reddish Browns

Light Brown Wig Colors

#1. Felicity in Maple Sugar-ROP, #2. Jessica in FS26/31-JR, #3. Carrie in Moccachino R-Noriko, #4. Hilary 24BT18-H Margu

 Picture #1: The first three wigs are reddish-brown and the last wig is ash blond with gold blond tips for comparison. Maple Sugar and Moccachino are very similar overall, meaning that if I had to rate them in terms of light to dark I would give them both a 5 on a scale of 1-10.  The brown in Maple Sugar is a light reddish-brown with blonde/strawberry highlights.  The brown in Moccachino is leaning towards more of a pecan/ash brown with gold blonde highlights (it looks darker in this pic).  FS26/31 is just a little darker, richer reddish brown with a richer, brighter red tone and lots of blonde highlights. It’s just a bit too dark/bright for me.  I apologize for the picture quality, the highlights are not really visible here.  I will try to put up a better picture soon.

Picture 2:  The problem with colors is that they appear different in different types of light. When you are indoors with the lights on your color will look darker except for the parts that reflect the light, and those parts change as you move your head or move around the room. In direct sunlight more of the hairs are reflecting light so your hair looks brighter and lighter overall. The first time my sister saw Carrie in Moccachino-R was in bright overhead sunlight and she said it looked blonde, more like my natural color. The next time I saw her she thought Carrie was a different light brown wig, darker than my usual color. We were in bright sunlight but this time the sun wasn’t directly overhead, it was just about to go down behind the mountains. So, when you see colors looking different in pictures, know that your wig will look like each of those different colors at one time or another depending on the lighting. (I’m not talking about the small online color squares, I don’t know what the problem is with those things, they’re completely useless!)  This picture was taken indoors in bright light with no flash.
