Eileen’s Review: Nori By Noriko Nutmeg R

I am a lover of Noriko wigs, my very first wig was Cory by Noriko and I have reordered her three times. When I saw the pictures of Nori I knew instantly that this was going to be another Noriko wig that I would love.

I am a fan of permatease and this Noriko wig is no exception, there is permatease! I have found however after a few washes this tends to relax a bit but being a true southern girl I like having that permanent lift that the permatease provides.

I did thin the top of Nori a bit, as with most Noriko wigs I find they have a lot of hair in the front, I don’t mind this at all as all I have to do is thin it out some and then its perfect!

Nori has the Noriko basic cap construction; open wefting, permatease top, felt ear tabs and an extended nape with adjusters. I find the Noriko cap fits me perfectly!

The specs on Nori are Front 3.5″, Crown 4.75″, Nape 3.1″, she is very lightweight at only 2.5 oz.

The color I got Nori in is Nutmeg R, this is a step away from my usual Noriko color of Creamy Toffee Rooted. Nutmeg R is described as a dark auburn blonde with ash platinum highlights and medium brown roots, the highlights really stand out in this color.

The photo above shows a comparison with Creamy Toffee Rooted, a light golden brown with hints of medium golden blonde and beige platinum blonde highlights, and a medium brown root.

I also compared Jon Renau’s Shaded Praline with Nutmeg R. Shaded Praline is a medium golden blonde on light golden brown nape and base with platinum highlights and medium brown roots. I see a pattern; I seem to love platinum highlights!

Finally, I compared Raquel Welch’s SS Golden Wheat to Nutmeg R. SS14/88 is SS Golden Wheat, a medium honey blonde with soft gold blonde highlights and medium brown roots.

The pictures above compare Nutmeg R with Ellen Wille’s Sand Multi Rooted which is a dark ash blonde and light caramel brown blend with hints of strawberry blonde and medium brown roots; another pattern, I love rooted wigs!

The back of Nori is adorable, all the flippy ends and razored cuts make this a fun shag that is perfect for a lot of face shapes. And look at those highlights!

There is not a ton of hair in the back of Nori, so if you are going to be outside in the wind make sure you are wearing a wig cap that matches. I usually use some synthetic hairspray on the back of these types of wigs and I have never had any issues with seeing the wefts.

Just by adding a simple head band and smoothing it down some you can make this one look totally different.

An adorable shaggy style, razor cutting, texture and volume, Nori has it all!

    Very cute! I wish Noriko fit my head better. It reminds me a lot of the Envy, Tara wig.
