Color Review: Jon Renau NEW California Blonde Human Hair Collection

Posted by Swco on


If you’ve spent time shopping for wigs, chances are you’ve heard the name Jon Renau.

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers, Jon Renau wigs can be found in shops across the globe - and for good reason. When I developed Alopecia Universalis and began searching for my ideal wig, I quickly learned that Jon Renau was synonymous with ‘quality’. These wigs are known for their style, wearabilty, and realistic look.

Last year, Jon Renau launch a synthetic California Blonde Collection comprised eight wigs available in four stunning blonde shades. The collection was so well received that it sold out almost immediately. The synthetic line’s success led Jon Renau to release the California Blonde Human Hair Collection in February.

The Details

During a recent trip to San Diego, I was lucky enough to visit the Jon Renau Headquarters and view the collection.

The collection consists of four colors and is available in eight styles.

I purchased wigs in three of the line’s four blonde colors and took the time to review them. I hope you find this review of Jon Renau’s Malibu, Venice, and Palm Springs blonde looks to be helpful as you navigate the world of wig shopping!

The Colors

1) Malibu (Code: 12FS12)

This classic blonde look is the warmest tone in the blonde collection. When worn outdoors, the sun beautifully picks up the highlights and lowlights of this look. I love this look because it’s bold and stylish enough to make a statement, but natural enough for daily wear.

Color Code: 12FS12

The initial “12” in the color code above indicates that this is a warm tone. Also in the code, you’ll notice the letters “FS”. This specifies that this color comes from the Fashion Syrup collection – a collection of fashion-forward looks featuring bold, thick highlights. The final “12” references the root color. Comparatively, this is a lighter root that naturally fades into the hair.


2) Venice (Code: 22F16S8)

Featuring a combination of cool beige tones, this high-end, sophisticated look screams “summer” to me. With its gorgeous melding tones, I can easily envision this look being worn everywhere from the beach to the boardroom.

Color Code: 22F16S8

Within the color code, “22” and “16” indicate that this look combines honey and cool blondes. The “F” indicates that this is a fashion look, typically with more noticeable highlights and a deeper nape. “S8” specifies that this wig features an 8 shaded root - the darkest root in the collection. This is the same color as the “Shaded Praline” in the synthetic collection.


3) Palm Springs (Code: FS17/101S18)

Get ready to stand out in this stunning look, featuring cool tones lifted by bold, chunky platinum highlights. As you can see in the photos below, the light ash blonde comes through beautifully in every lighting.

Color Code: FS17/101S18

As indicated in the color code, this wig blends a cool blonde hue (17) with platinum highlights (101). “S18” indicates that this look has an 18 shaded root – one of the lightest roots in the collection.


Recap

With the California Blonde Human Hair Collection, Jon Renau delivers stunning colors in realistic and easy-to-wear pieces. If you love to be blonde, I think it’s hard to go wrong with any of these gorgeous options.
