Hi folks Kathleen here with my review of Innuendo by Gabor. This is not a new style but she is new to me. I wanted something short for the summer but not pixie short. Image 2 lists all the specs of Innuendo. Sweet bangs and some length on the sides but still pixie short in the back. She looked adorable. The color in the product photos is Ginger Mist G27+. I bet you’re thinking it looks like my color choice right? Mine is Cayenne Mist G29+. After researching online etc it looked to me that unlike the color descriptions or what the color codes indicated Cayenne Mist would be lighter than Ginger Mist. I wanted a strawberry blonde and Cayenne Mist G29+ is exactly what I was hoping for.
Innuendo is a basic open cap with no monofilament features. Gabor wigs can be roomy on me but this one fit pretty well. I little roomy over my ears but not anywhere else which is good.
Image 3 illustrates Innuendo right out of the box. Adorable with a bit of box hair. I loved how she looked, her fit, and comfort, and for me just as important, I loved the color. Perfect. I wanted a real strawberry blonde. Estetica’s R30/28/26 and Tony of Beverlys Sangria come close but they are darker than I wanted. Both of those colors I consider more of a natural light auburn. The fibers on Innuendo were a bit shiny. I usually don’t use products etc on my wigs. In this case I wanted to wear her right away….I had no time to wash her so I sprinkled some powder on her. That works just fine and when I wash her that initial shine will go away.
Image 4 illustrates how little you need to reduce that too shiny wig hair look. Image 5 illustrates the after..no shine. Works every time…easy peasy.
This style is sooo dang cute. I did trim a few little sections of hair on one side that seemed too long. But honestly I didn’t need to. 😉 This is a true shake and go style. The length on the sides is great for hiding my bio hair.
This style has a very natural density and even though she has permatease she doesn’t have that unnatural pouffy top you get on some permateased wigs. Lots of razored layers. I didn’t but you could go to town with some Jon Renau piece out creme and bring all that texture out.
Image 7 illustrates the adorable profile of this style. Very flattering especially those longer face hugging layers.
So what is a basic open cap. Image 8 illustrates what an open cap is. If you are a wig newbie Innuendo is great first time wig. She does not have a lace front or mono part or mono top or even a mono crown. What does that mean for a first time wig wearer? No itching. It takes quite awhile (some folks never get used to it) for you and your brain to get used to the feeling of monofilament features. I don’t recommend mono features for a first time wig wearer. Most of the cap has open tracks (wefts) his allows air circulation so you won’t get as hot wearing your wig. The rose lace covered area on top is where most of the permatease is. Think permanent teased hair. 😉 It’s there to support the style of your wig and to obscure the wefts. This wig only weighs 2.5oz so super light on your head.
All I did was move one section of hair over. Easy peasy 😉
Images 12 & 13 illustrates this color very well. You can see the light auburn and the warm blonde highlights on top. There are more highlights around the face. This is definitely a red lovers blonde..lol
I’m crushing over the back. Love the flips. The darker color in the back adds dimension to this color as well. I don’t know about you but I can’t stand anything on my neck when its hot. I am glad the nape is only 2”.
So if you are looking for short but not pixy short realistic density no frills wig for the warmer months or for a first wig you will love Innuendo. Enjoy!
