Our guest blogger today is Kathleen. Color can be such a difficult thing to capture online and most questions we receive in the CCHD are about color. As an artist, Kathleen definitely knows her stuff. Check out her work at www.KathleenRyanArt.com.
Color and picking the right color for you based on manufacturers photos is nearly impossible and I know I’m not alone. When I first saw Ellen Wille’s Light Honey Rooted wig color I was scared off in trying it because of the manufacturers photo shown in my collage below. The description was good but the color!..ugh..it looked like that old fashioned gold blonde you saw back in the ’60’s. After viewing Taz’s YouTube of this exact wig (EW’s Sky in Light Honey Rooted) and Heathers video review of the same wig different color (Safran Red Rooted yum ?) I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did.
Yes there are a lot of warm honey blonde notes in this color but it has so many Platinum (not ash platinum but slightly warm because of the French Vanilla Blonde that is mixed in with it) highlights on top. It’s so realistic and dynamic. It’s fresh with rich color saturation..but not bright or garish. Great for my fair winter complexion. In the summer and with a little tan I can get away with more ash based blondes which I love also.?
In my collage you can see the closest my photos got to EW manufacturers photo was the example in artificial indoor light. That is because they shoot these samples indoors with bright studio lights. A good rule of thumb to follow is the wig color samples you see on the product pages will in general appear lighter, brighter (how saturated or intense the color is) and warmer than the actual wig color will look in “normal” natural light conditions as demonstrated in my collage.
I LOVE this color Light Honey Rooted by Ellen Wille and Sky is my new favorite everyday wig…so comfy flirty and the color is gorgeous. I highly recommend both. ?
