Video Wig Review: Elle by Jon Renau in Color Shaded Peach (30A27S4)

I am posting this video now because I’m considering picking up this wig again during all  the Fourth of July sales that are going on (so far, Wigs.com has the best I’ve seen at 30% off, but for me they are one of the few online sites that charge tax so they end up being not as great a deal as they could be) and I’m torn about color. I have a written review of the version I got of this wig in a 4-33, and while it is a much better match for my bio hair, the color is not as pretty as the Shaded Peach and the hair fiber was more coarse.

The big thing holding me back on getting the Renaus I’d like to own again (Courtney and Elle) is their lace fronts. If you look at my review on the Elle in 4-33, I talk about how sparse they can be on Renau wigs; it’s always been a problem and since both Courtney and Elle are expensive (in my book anyway) I hesitate to take the risk. But they are both some of the most natural longer styles I’ve ever seen, so I will most likely take a shot.

If I get anything in the 4-33 it will be Elle; Courtney would be too much dark hair for me, I think. I owned Courtney in the 6F27, but the lace front knots were too light; and the wigs I tried in the Shaded Peach all had lace fronts that were fine. Plus, the hair fiber in Shaded Peach always felt nice and silky, so I think overall it’s a safer bet than another color (if the color has anything to do with all of that; it seems to in my experience).

I’ll upload my video of Courtney in 6F27 here in a bit – for now here’s Elle in Shaded Peach, and here’s a link to the review I did of the 4-33. Which do you prefer? I hardly need to ask, because I know what most of you are going to say…LOL.

  2. Love this color on you Cynthia and also love the length of this wig. Wanted to share with you I watched a You Tube video recently of a girl showing how she uses a product to make the wig line blend in better with her hairline. I was thinking you might also be able to use it to help with the sparser lace front areas. Here it is on Amazon:

    • Oh yes, I have heard of people doing this. Something to keep in mind and try…I wonder if eyeshadow powder would work the same way. I bet it’s close. Thanks!

  3. I’m not sure if it’s still valid but Wilshire Wigs has a 30% off with no tax. Just thought I’d let you know.

  4. I love the Elle and the Courtney and have several. However, since this collection I don’t think much imagination has gone into styles or colors or improvement on lacefronts. I do appreciate your reviews. You always look lovely. I tried to find your review on Lola but haven’t found it. Thanks so much.

    • I have it somewhere, I’ll try to get it uploaded.

      I am really torn on some of these Renaus. While I love the style of Courtney and Elle I am concerned about the lacefronts and bummed about the boring colors. And gosh I’d love to try that Karlie – but it’s over $400! REALLY?! It looks so natural and lovely but on principle alone I don’t think I can do it.

      I’m definitely going to do another Courtney but still unsure about going with another Elle. I also want to get the Simply Flawless by Gabor, but sheesh, it’s almost as much as Elle. Everything is getting so expensive and I rather promised myself I’d stay economical, LOL.

  5. This style is so pretty — and it looks very nice on you. The color is superb! What brand has the best, most consistent lacefronts? It is a shame. What do you think about Ferre styles, colors and quality? Curious.

    • I’ve only had a few Ferres, but I really liked them. Soho Chic was a real favorite. Lovely hair fiber and a great lacefront. I still want to pick up another one sometime because I wore my first one OUT.

  6. This is a great, really informative review, thank you so much. Can I ask, in your experience, which manufacturer has the best, most consistent and realistic lace fronts? I look terrible with bangs, or anything even slightly over my forehead, so this is essential for me! Thank you : )

    • I think most of them are fine; hard to say whose is the ‘best’ since they tend to be similar from manufacturer to manufacturer. I can say that Jon Renau’s can sometimes be too sparse and I’ve had that complaint as well as others that I know. They are not consistently bad, but there are some bad ones out there. Raquel Welch I’ve never had issues with their lacefronts, in fact the only one that comes to mind that was what I would call ‘bad’ was a Henry Margu that I tried – the lace front had a totally round shape to it that no hairline actually has, so it looked odd. But I am not a Henry Margu fan in general. My best bets for lace fronts are Raquel Welch, Gabor, Ellen Wille, and then Jon Renau is a notch below them due to the quality control issues. Oh and the Louis Ferre lacefronts have been very nice and realistic, too.
