Gisele by Jon Renau in 24BT18

Giselle by Jon Renau is perfection!  She has a mono top/lace front cap which makes this wig look natural and very realistic.  The hair fiber is soft and silky, light weight, has exceptional natural movement and the part can be moved easily.  I love everything about Giselle.  She’s my new up front and center girl and I can’t wait to get her in more colors!

Spotlight by Raquel in Fiery Copper RL31/29

Spotlight by Raquel in Fiery Copper RL31/29 has a monofilament top, lace front Memory Cap II with Tru2Life heat-resistant synthetic hair (up to 180 degrees).  She is about the same length as Show Stopper, however, this wig has been cut because the back of the wig was horribly frayed and crackly like straw, which I’m sure is a lack of inspection of returns on the part of Best Wig Outlet.   Other than that major flaw this wig is a typical Raquel wig–a little dry/coarse but has good movement and the color is beautiful.

Julia by Jon Renau in Cinnamon Syrup FS12/24B

Julia by Jon Renau in Cinnamon Syrup has a mono top and lace front which looks very natural and realistic.  She is very similar to the Jackson by Noriko.  The hair fiber is smooth and silky and has great movement.  Diana loves this wig and has nothing bad to say about it.  Great wig!

Camera Ready by Raquel in RS29 and RL32/31

Camera Ready by Raquel is a beautiful wig and does not look like the model pictures which is a good thing!  She is similar to Gisele by Jon Renau but she has more curls, and her hair fiber is soft and silky like Gisele!!!  That’s a plus for us!  The cap has a mono part and lace front, although I don’t know why they use two words to differentiate the part and front when it is clearly one piece of material with no seam.  No wonder it’s confusing…the wig companies can’t even decide which terms to use!  If you look at the list prices Camera Ready is about $70 cheaper than Gisele.  Diana and I have decided that we like the mono part/lace front better than the mono top/lace front for a few reasons:  the price can be up to $100 cheaper; there’s no visible seam between the mono part and lace front; and we really don’t need to change the part around.  The colors are beautiful too.  RS29+ is an even blend of highlights which are dark gold blonde, strawberry, light blonde and light golden brown; I believe the plus means that there are several colors in it.  RS32/31 is dark auburn with bright auburn highlights–it’s exactly the same as ROP’s Chestnut.  We have nothing bad to say about this wig and would recommend it in a heartbeat!  Camera Ready and Gisele are fighting over the prestigious up front and center position in Diana’s collection, and since it’s two against one…I think Gisele may be losing her spot!

Show Stopper by Raquel in Honey Ginger 14/25

Show Stopper by Raquel in Honey Ginger 14/25 is a heat friendly synthetic wig with a mono top and lace front. She is a long and straight style with razored ends.  Her hair fiber is exactly the same as Scene Stealer’s but Show Stopper has less hair, is shorter and weighs less than Scene Stealer.  Her hair fiber is stiff though, she does not have good movement and she needs to be combed every 2 hours or so when she’s out and about.  We find that the heat friendly fiber just isn’t very silky smooth, especially after you use heat on it, and Raquel’s wigs are known to be a bit dry or coarse, but there are people who have that type of hair naturally and feel more comfortable in what they’re used to.  Show Stopper is a beautiful wig and Honey Ginger is a great color!

Haute by Jon Renau in 24BRH18

Haute by Jon Renau in 24BRH18 has a mono/lace part and front.  She is a beautiful wig with very natural movement.  Her color is more blended than highlighted and only very slightly ashy.  As you can see from the top view of the part, the first inch or so is a blended a bit darker than the rest of the wig.  I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this wig!
