Finn by Estetica…Dream Hair by Kathleen

Hi folks Kathleen here with my review of Finn by Estetica. I am on a roll with these “long” styles. Yes I love Finn…lol. I was hoping I would after seeing Heather (CEO & founder of CysterWigs) review her. Since my face is oblong I look for volume or better yet curls around mid face on me. Ahh this wig has that and in general is a beautifully balanced beachy wave mid length style.

I love their R30/28/26 color. Its really just a pretty very natural ginger color. Now if Estetica ever offered Finn in their gorgeous Irish red R133/24H I would gobbled up a gazillion of them..ahh a girl can dream. 😉

In Image 5 I have Finn pulled back in a low pony..she would be adorable in a sloppy updo or a messy bun. She has enough length in back to do a lot of things in the styling department. ☺️

Ahhh onto what makes Finn so special. Number one her amazing lace front…I hesitate to call it that because it’s so deep. You really could call it a three quarter mono top….or perhaps a partial mono top..honestly. Estetica’s lace fronts are beautiful and equally important consistently beautiful.


So here is Finn on my new wig head (that I love so much it’s bordering on obsession 🤣) The curls don’t just start abruptly . There is a nice amount of body that transitions beautifully into her curl/wave pattern. Images 7-10 illustrate Finn’s absolutely gorgeous texture. Her fibers are not shiny at all ( no need for dry shampoo here) and so fine and her density is very realistic. Amazingly well balanced design all the way around.

What I love about the back aside from this delicious curl pattern is just like with TressAllure’s Mia the back is longer than the front and sides but with Finn it also tapers to a soft v shape. Very flattering shape that visually elongates the body. In other words from the back and side Finn’s shape makes me look thinner. That’s a plus in my book. ☺️

Since the lace front is so deep you can part her anywhere. As a matter of fact when I first put her on I thought I read her description wrong and she had a mono top. Where ever I parted the front the lace went back so deep. Lets face it with curly wigs or dense wigs you can never see the part anyway so this is a huge plus in my book. I almost would rather have this deep lace front than my favorite lace front mono part combo. Especially on a heavily textured wig like Finn.

In image 12- 14 I compare Finn with Mia by TressAllure and Curl Up by Gabor. Here are three styles that have a lot of similarities. If you look at their specs they should all look pretty much the same…but they don’t. The closest on length is Mia but her curl pattern is quite different than Finn’s. Curl Up has a similar curl pattern to Finn but is much fuller and shorter.

As I wear her Finn’s curls loosen up a bit and she looks even more natural.

The side sweeping bang stays out of your eyes and at the same time if you want to style her back to show off this amazing lace front you can do that with ease.

Now about the volume and permatease on Finn. I think that balance is perfect. She has just enough permatease to cover wefts and to help with the style of Finn. No pillowy permatease. The majority of the volume you can get with Finn is through this gorgeous curl/wave pattern/texture. I have Estetica’s Autumn wig and you know how much I love it. Well Finn has much less permatease than Autumn. Just to compare with a wig you might be familiar with if you are a fan of Estetica. One reason I hesitated getting Finn was the fact that it didn’t have a mono part. Well as you can see in image 17 its not much of a problem. A few strands of hair strategically placed and you will never even know this wig has any permatease.

Image 19 illustrates this gorgeous curl pattern and this beautiful color. R30/28/26. This was taken in natural light outdoors. So even in natural light this color never screams at you with bold or garish colors or highlights. Very soft pretty light ginger auburn.

Ok so here is Finn above in image 20 in all her glory. Isn’t she the most gorgeous wig you’ve ever seen? I can’t believe I love two long wigs now..lol.🤣 This is after a week of wearing her. She just gets better and better as time goes by. All I did from the initial out of the box photos ( specifically compare this photo with image 4)was repart her a little so she looks better on me and the part looks even more realistic. Put her on my head get my ear tabs all lined up and the nape in place and shake my head up and down ( think of the scene in Wayne’s World when they’re singing Bohemian Rhapsody. 😉) and I’m good to go. Honestly easy gorgeous hair right out of the box…Great for Fall or really anytime of year…I highly recommend Finn..enjoy!

    Wow! Finn is beautiful! and you look gorgeous in it. I almost cancelled my Aspen purchase and switched to Finn. Why oh why didn’t you think longer hair suited you? These curls are so flattering and you look like a Greek goddess!

        Whoa! I just got notice that Finn was available again and I ordered her in R4/8, my ‘lighter’ color. My face shape is probably closer to yours than the other reviewers’ and I am very excited. Aspen IS lovely, but as a former real-life curl-girl, her waves were just not enough for me. I think Finn is going to ‘take me home’!

    Thank you for doing this wig review. I have been looking at it and hoping you or Taz would review it. You both do an excellent job. Heather does an excellent job with the construction and color. I am new to this “game” and really appreciate what you guys do.

    Oh my gosh Kathleen! Again, you look gorgeous in these lovely red wavy wigs. I like the longer style on you! It looks very natural and very comfortable. I especially like the Estetica red color that you picked out, because it has highlights rather than low lights like the Mia that you had shown previously. But again, you make it shine! You make it look easy and breezy and so impeccable. Thanks for everything!

      Hi Sheila..thank you! Yes this is such an easy casual style…I’m quite smitten..and this color is just very soft and pretty..natural not my usual vibrant “Irish” reds. 😉 thanks for reading my review. Best-Kathleen
