    Hello Everyone

    I am new to wearing wigs and could use some assistance. I previously purchased Drew by Jon Renau which I loved but because it was HD it got really frizzy and matted within a week so for me it was a waste of money although I did like the style. I’m looking for something with lower maintenance and a very simple style as I travel a lot. I’ve already tried Courtney and Elle by Jon Renau and wasn’t happy with that so I’m hope you can give me advice so I can possibly prevent having to send another wig back. I plan on having 2 wigs, one shorter and one longer. I am happy with the shorter one I got which is Cameron by Jon Renau but now I need the longer one.

    I’m thinking I would like to try another brand and I’m torn between these two because of what some of the reviews say but I love the way they both look in the videos. Does anyone have any experience with these 2 wigs below? I'd love to hear some personal stories on the quality and style of these wigs and which one would be the lowest maintenance and last the longest? I appreciate any help!

    I don’t have personal experience but from the photos I like the style of the second one better.

    All I can tell you is that long synthetic wigs will tangle! From reviews I've read, the blend won't be as static-y.

    I have Ava in medium grey. I have other Envyhair (blends) and love them but the cut / style of Ava just isn’t me. Can’t decide whether to restyle or sell. From experience longer wigs do tangle, but I use a bamboo oil conditioner (Kendi dry oil, Amazon) that seems to help.

    I don’t wear long wigs so I’m sorry I’m no help there. But I do have 2 Jon Renau wigs and compared to the Noriko and RENEE of Paris wigs I have I just feel like the quality of the JR is lower; strictly personal opinion. I don’t care for the texture or the feel of their synthetic wigs. After one washing of my JR Evan the permatease looks like a rat’s best! And that could simply be my inexperience! I would love to try an Ellen Wille but so many reviews caution about how small they are I won’t even try one. I personally like the look and feel of the Renee of Paris most. Try to find as many YouTube reviews as you can. I think that helps me in making a final decision.

    In my 10 years of wearing toppers and wigs by comparison Rene of Paris is the very best.
    For color, fiber, fit and durability.

    Coco, what is the name of the one on your profile picture? That is very cute

    HD actually requires heat (and sometimes a bit of steam) to keep it in top form. Suggest you search YouTube or some of the wig forums on Facebook on how to do this.

    agree, though they don't usually have the lace fronts or monofilament top, each of my Noriko & ROPs have lasted over a year of almost daily wear. Adore Renau hair realism, but it comes with a cost! :worry: :smile:
  • Debbie
    Any suggestions on a lace front look alike of Trend Setter?
  • Coco
    Hi Debbie, it’s Sky by Noriko.
  • jeanybeany54
    i love julia by reneau. is so beautiful and realistic
  • Debbie
    Lace front wig that is similar to Trend Setter, help please
  • dc21
    Tressallure's Mid Wavy Layered Shag is 100% handtied with a lace front and double mono. It used to be known as Syntress Primrose. Tressallure has a few short shags that have potential to be styled like RW's Trendsetter, although it appears they have monos with no lace front.
  • Debbie
    Thank you so much dc21

    a friend of mine wore Code Mono for a while and loved it. It really is a beautiful wig.
  • Debbie
    Thank you Vee1028 :)
  • Debbie
    Something in the way of trend setter style with lace front :)

    I have tried several brands (Raquel Welch, JR, EW) but always, always come back to Noriko, Renee of Paris and Amore, as they are Made by the same company. The fibers and colors are beautiful, not to mention they last for years. Although they are not heat friendly I steam them when they get matted, it brings them to a silky texture. Brandi, Jackson and Taylor are my go to wigs, I can get three years out of them. The prices of Noriko, Amore, and RP are extremely reasonable vs the years of wear I get out of them. My only wish is that they made Jackson in a mono part however, if you make a messy part it’s undetectable.
