Where should the adjusters go when you put on a wig?

From a client email:

I am having trouble with the nape of my wigs. Where should the adjusters sit behind the ear or below and under the occipital bone? Note: I have a very narrow head.

The nape should be below the occipital bone, unless the back of your head is flat. (Heather has that issue due to having a fuller neck, for instance.)

The adjusters should be ideally above this, somewhere comfortably in between the bottom of the back of your ears and the top of the nape on the wig. This will differ from woman to woman, though, since it all depends on your head size and how far you let those adjusters in or out.

What are the Jon Renau colors with dark roots?

From a client email:

I’m wanting to get Kristen by Jon Renau but I would like to know what the rooted colors are since there is no mono part. I just don’t seem to understand the colors.

Any color listed on Kristen’s page that says “Shaded” means the color is rooted–except Salted Caramel doesn’t say “shaded,” yet it is also a rooted color. Are you looking for a red-toned color? A blonde? Let us know and we would be glad to help you find colors that might work for you!

All of Jon Renau’s Rooted Colors can be found below.

Why do certain styles look longer/shorter on different people?

Customer Question:

I have to ask why some wigs look shorter on different people. For some reason the wigs, I only have one, look longer on me.

That is a fantastic question! Now, I also have a question for you, have you measured your face? (from your hairline to your chin) This measurement will help greatly with figuring what the length of a style will be on you, especially when it comes those shorter, pixie cuts! I also have a very petite cap size and about a 7″ long face. So, I know when I see a certain style has a fringe measurement of 3.75″ (about 4″), I know it’s most likely going to fall around my cheekbone, maybe a bit higher, like with Ivy by Noriko. I use this same trick for the side measurement as well. I find it really helps me determine if I’ll like the length of a certain style.

Can an Open Cap be Parted Down the Middle?

Email from a client asking if Ocean by Estetica can be parted down the middle:

“Can you please tell me if the Estetica ocean wig can be parted down the middle?”

Great question! Since Ocean by Estetica has an open cap it is able to be parted down the middle or in any direction, but you may run into an issue of the wefts showing due to this style being an open cap.

The best wigs that will give you a more natural part will be styles that have a mono-top. The mono-top allows for the wig to be parted in any direction. Mono-parts also give you a natural part, but since the part is built in, you really can’t manipulate it from the side that it is parted on.

How can I tell how long a wig is?

The measurements are taken by the suppliers themselves and these are the specs they provide to us. Nape measurements are generally taken from the hair at the physical nape at the interior back of the wig down to the bottom of the hair.

The nape is a much better measurement for determining overall length than the crown measurement. Many styles are layered, meaning that they will have short crown measurements due to the cut even if they are long styles. Stick with the nape as your primary guide to avoid confusion.
