    When Heather asked me to review this wig I thought oh wow pretty color!…another shaggy bob. Thank you Heather you know I love my reds ?. This is probably one of the easiest styles to wear for most women. I also decided to wear it a few times to really own the style and really see how it fits and wears over time …for instance… does it keep its shape? …does it ride up at the nape?….does it tangle easily? You really have to wear a wig a few times to answer those questions. 

           On a designer note the box your wig comes in is simple and elegant. 

Nothing is more exciting than opening your hair mail and seeing the color for the first time. Am I right? I thought ooh pretty!…very dark but pretty! 

Enclosed were instructions on how to “comb” your hair and care instructions. I really appreciate that. Especially for a first time wig wearer. Its a great reminder for more experienced wig wearers also.

 Below is a great photo of not only the lace front & mono part but of the color and the gorgeous highlights that really make it pop. One note I’d like to make here is there is a seem between the lace front & mono part. Sometimes you can see this when you part your wig and have to adjust the part a little to obscure it. I didn’t have a problem because this style was so layered but I am spoiled by Gabor’s one piece lace front & mono part…aka no seam! 

  Below is a close up of the lace front and the knotting of the individual hairs. You can also see all the beautiful colors used to make this Rusty Red color. A couple of notes about this lace front. I thought the spacing was excellent. I’m not a fan of the super dense lace fronts myself. The knotting was a little obvious in my book. The darker strands had that hair plug look. To be honest I personally didn’t style this off my face so its not an issue for me but its something to keep in mind if you want to style Brenna off your face. Another note.. there was quite a lot of excess  lace that I would trim off the front. These are very minor complaints though…In general I LOVE ❤️ this wig. It can be smooth and professional or fluffed up and sexy. I love that in a wig

   Brenna in Rusty Red is a very razored shaggy short bob. Gorgeous cut. The more I wear it the more I love it. Below is a collage of Brenna showcasing this luscious color. I styled the bangs back so you could see the highlights better. I would describe this color as a dark rich brownish red with some copper highlights with more of the highlights around the face. 

I love to compare reds. Gabor’s Dark Copper is a little lighter and more coppery red than Rene Of Paris’s Rusty red which is darker redder with dark chestnut brown. 

   Above is a collage showcasing this spectacular style. Notice all the razored layers..sooo gorgeous!  I am loving this wig. The hair is very soft and silky and it doesn’t tangle. ?? This is perfect everyday hair. 

I love Brenna sassy or office friendly you pick. Rusty Red is a wonderful color that is dark and rich but never gets too intense. So many reds so little time..lol Enjoy!

    Rusty red would look gorgeous with your coloring Gina. 🙂 It is darker than Gabors Dark Copper and cooler and redder than DC. In low light it looks like a dark reddish brunette.
