First let me say, I LOVE Joelle! I have been looking at Joelle, for a long time. I’ve been wearing wigs for about 8 years. I wear almost exclusively Raquel Welch, Limelight, color 19/23. Such a beautiful color! Sadly this wig quality, has declined, she is now made so THIN! I started looking for a replacement wig.
When I saw Joelle came is silver, very close to RW 19/23 (Biscuit), such a similar style and half the price, I took the chance! Joelle is my first TOB wig. The photos, reviews, Taz and Heather’s video reviews, convinced me to give her a try!
She shipped VERY fast! I was so EXCITED, all wig wearers KNOW the thrill of “Hair Mail”! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! Beautiful pearly white front (just how my own gray hair is). The mix of gray, light brown and pearly white are all blended beautifully. It has a silver sheen, especially in sunlight, it literally glows!! Very flattering shade for all skin tones, I believe. The hair fibers are silky soft, sleek and a natural sheen. Unusual for a non heat resistant wig. The hair has a fine denier, just the right amount of density, no worry about tracks showing through, nor too heavy. The hair moves beautifully!
The lace front was a bit rough feeling so I rubbed it with a fabric softener sheet and it was fine. The lace front is impeccable, I MEAN INVISIBLE!
Joelle has a very well done, generous mono part.
I have an average size head and did have to move the velcro tabs all the way out. The cap is very light and cool, very good coverage on the sides. Joelle has gorgeous loose, layered curls. When I put her on, she fit like a glove! No need for tape or bobby pins! YAY!
I did customize her. I added bangs, then took some photos. I took the photos outdoors, in natural sunlight. After the photos, I trimmed her to just below my shoulders. She’s still long enough to wear in a loose updo, sides pulled back or low ponytail. PLEASE do not customize your wig, unless you are very familiar with doing it yourself! Take your wig to a professional!
I wore Joelle to my 5 yr old grandson’s soccer game, it was in the 90’s, but Joelle still felt cool and comfortable! My daughter gave me a thumbs up! She said, “I LOVE this wig, it’s beautiful and looks completely natural.” She told me no one would ever know it’s a wig, she’s always honest!
Simply Stylin’ Serum is a must, I use my fingers or Jon Renau styling comb. I find that just below the shoulders length, does not tangle much or frizz the ends.
FINALLY, a silver wig that’s not a PIXIE! I’m 62, but not ready for short gray hair yet! I feel wig makers are missing a large wig market, by not offering longer style in gray or white!
My own hair is longer than Joelle, mostly white and a lighter gray. BUT, it’s super curly and takes an hour to style, thank heaven I found wigs! No more bad hair days! I feel younger, when I have a beautiful wig on, healthy, silky hair. Who doesn’t want beautiful hair, in minutes!
I hope my review has helped, I ALWAYS read reviews and they are a huge help! Heather and the CysterWigs team are the best, very informative, great customers service! I LOVE CysterWigs!
