  1. my first wig and very disappointed :(
    I decided to get this wig for the good reviews but didn't work for me.

    Gisele it is a very pretty wig, the hair is very soft, but with a lot cons and the color I have ordered is 1B just like my own color, the only problem is that she fits kind of small and I supposed to be average, the other bad thing is that the lace front itch like crazy I can not handle it and very noticeable just as the white line crossing the lace and of course sheds a lot, it was just wasted money because I wont be able to use it :(

    I don't recommend this wig!

  2. Flattering and Realistic
    I am brand new to wigs and first purchased both Gisele and Julianne. I’ve been wearing Gisele for a few weeks now and really like it. Gisele is the style I am more comfortable with and have actually worn out of my house, even though Julianne is closer to my natural hair style. Gisele is very flattering, attractive and natural looking. At first the hair density seemed a bit much, since I have very thin fine hair, but I quickly became used to the amount of hair and now feel it just looks like head of naturally healthy hair. Gisele is very versatile; I can leave the hair down, put it up in a claw clip, chop sticks or a ponytail and it always looks great. When Gisele is left down the hair does tend to tangle, but I suspect that is any long wig. The cap design is very comfortable and fits my petite size really well.

    I bought Gisele in Toffee Truffle (FS6/30/27) and the color is gorgeous! The heavy highlights really break up the dark brown and give it life, while still looking very tasteful. The highlights also look fantastic with the wavy texture of Gisele.

  3. Love it so far!
    Have worn the Gisele a few times now, I really love how it looks and it's very light with a natural movement. The 8/33 color is beautiful and the part line works great. Several people have commented on how much they like my new style and they all assumed it was my real hair! The hair does feel super fine and I've had to be very careful with scarfs and coats as the strands can get caught and easily break. The shape and style have held up very well so far and with care I thinks it should last quite a while. So far I'm loving it and feeling very pretty!

  4. This is my go-to hair!
    Gisele has been my primary wig for about 1 1/2 years now. While it took some time for it to fit well on my head (my size in the border between Average and Large). I've tended to stick to brunettes and auburns, as those are my colors. My favorites are 27T33B, 6/33 (as in my picture) and Shaded Peach. I'm a big fan of JR's colors. They have the right undertones to match my skin.

    It tangles no differently than any other long wig, but I love how Gisele falls on my face, especially given how much volume I need higher up. There's a tiny bit of permatease on the back, but that's what helps with my volume, so it's no issue for me.

    Some of my friends find that Renau fiber is a little harsh as far as synthetics go, but with good maintenance, I've had some problems only with one of the Giseles I've owned. (It was probably from a bad lot.)

    And the lace! I've lucked out *very* well with how Jon Renau lace-fronts fall on my head. I do need a bit of concealer with the 4 rooted in the Shaded Peach, but that's the same situation with my Haute and my Adriana.

    This is my favorite wig.

  5. Beautiful, but...
    I ordered Gisele in Chocolate Pretzel. I love the way the wig fits. The length is perfect. I have worn it for two days and the monofilament top is pulling away from the velvet side. It is pulling away the more I wear it. I don't have another to wear. I really don't know what to do. I have it styled for me. I feel it is a lot of money to have it fall apart after wearing it twice. Please advise.

  6. I'll stick with Adriana
    I've been wearing Adriana in color 4/33 and wanted a slightly lighter, more natural brown. Since Adriana doesn't come in 8/32 and I didn't like the other brunette choices, I opted to try the Gisele in 8/32. It turns out that I much prefer the natural density of the hand-tied Adriana (lower density) as well as the curl pattern. Gisele seems to have most of the curls concentrated toward the bottom, whereas Adriana has subtle, soft waves up around the face. I'll stick with Adriana; I just wish Jon Renau would offer it in 8/32. By the way, Jon Renau should offer a brunette shade like Ellen Wille's dark chocolate - a perfect rich dark brown. JR's browns tend to be either cool, harsh shades or too orangey. Otherwise JR wigs are great.

  7. Great for the first day, We will see!
    I love this style, It is so flattering and very pretty. I am a 40 year old mom of three and it suits me fine. Not too long and unmanageable. But long enough to be feminine. The cap is nice though I am spoiled to hand tied! I love the Heidi in this similar cap as well. The Julianne is my summer short. Love Jon Renau! Just wish they kept their soft feeling past the fist wash! Or past the first few days even. :/ All in all a good product. But the cost of these synthetics sure does add up! I am thinking of Emotion by Ellem Wille for Christmas. :)

  8. Lovely!! Realistic... Pinup "look"
    I love this wig. I have alopecia so wigs are my only option. I love wearing wigs now - I look younger and always put together. Gisele is beautiful. I wore her for a number of months (purchased multiple of the same wig). I'm a mid thirties professional - so it's important I look good in and out of work. This wig is sexy but professional. A lot of men, when I went from work to evening told me it looked like a 30's pinup hair (great compliment). I always ordered shaded peach - which was fabulous.

    Only downside - it SHEDS like crazy!! I can confirm it's the wig itself. I went through at least three of the same wig in the same color and they all shed. If I'm not going to have hair, I would appreciate not shedding fake hair all over the bathroom floor!! LOL.

    You wont be disappointed :)

  9. Model Hair
    This wig is one of my favorites! It is that perfect model hair without any work. It looks natural and feels comfortable.

  10. First two great quality was cheapened thereafter
    The first two wigs of this style were okay though two sparse in the front. I ordered another four and they were all lesser quality even sparser than the already too sparse front and cheaper fiber quality. I used to order only this brand because I thought they were the best. I finally had to switch to a more expensive brand that looks more natural and lasts longer. I never receive strange looks from people with my new brand but found I was getting a lot of looks at the hairline (or balding hairline I should say) of the Jon Renau brand. It is too bad that they do not offer quality for the price.
    We're so sorry to hear you're unhappy! We forwarded your feedback and we're confident it will be addressed and resolved. Lace front wigs are all hand-tied to give a natural appearance and natural movement but may vary slightly from wig to wig. The SmartLace front on a Jon Renau wig is designed to mimic your own hairline. Our natural hairline starts thinner then gradually increases in density. If you ever feel the hairline is too thin or notice anything that doesn't seem right you can send your wig in to be inspected and exchanged. We look forward to helping you and hearing back!

  11. Love it
    Gisele by Jon Renau is a great wig one of my best.

  12. don't bother
    It took only a few weeks for the frizz to start and the curls to drop out. The lace front stretched out and I had to take tucks in it which made it look like I had 2 scars. For this kind of money I expected much more. This was a waste of money.
    We're so sorry to hear you're unhappy! We forwarded your feedback and we're confident it will be addressed and resolved. One of the things we love about synthetic fiber is that the curl stays in even after you wash it! With some styles it is normal for the curl to loosen slightly depending on how it is styled or even with time. Gisele is set and styled to have loose waves and body so it will not have a distinct curl pattern. With a longer synthetic wig frizz can occur due to the friction on your neck or with scarves and clothing. To avoid this we recommend using the proper synthetic safe products and to detangle the neckline throughout the day. Some wig salons offer repair services that can help with extreme frizzing or matting. For more advice please feel free to call our Wig Experts at 1-800-581-2001. We hope this information helped and look forward to hearing back!

  14. NO ONE knew it was a wig!
    I have 4 of these wigs. I just wore a new one out of the box to the Emmy Awards! NO ONE knew it was a wig! I took it out of the box put it on styled it with my fingers and sprayed it with hair spray. Not even the hair stylists at a very well known salon in Beverly Hills knew I had a wig on! I couldn't believe it! Even the make up artist had no idea it was a wig! I had to really point to the lace and even then she was not sure of what I was showing her. I love this wig!
    The top is sparce could use a bit more hair on top and the fibers are not the same as they were when I first purchased it. I found that I really only get about 7-8 good days of wearing before I have to wash it and once it is washed all the beautiful layers just seem to disappear and the wig no longer looks anything like it does out of the box. I am also finding I am losing a lot of hair which is the reason I switched from Raquel Welch's wigs. I don't understand it. When you get a good product that mostly everyone loves why mess around and change it. They are blowing a good thing!

  15. Not consistent quality
    I have Alopecia and I am 99% bald aside from some hair patches. I had the John Renau in the Julia style which I loved. I wanted to try something with a little more volume so got the Gisele. Loved it! It held up very well for several months. I ordered another one but sadly I didn't have the same love the second time. I found the lace front to get sparse very quickly. I had to keep moving the part because of this. I also found the lace front to get itchy and irritating - it wasn't as comfortable as the first time. The ends also got frayed very fast. I just ordered another John Renau in a different style. Hoping for better luck!

  16. Love the Layers
    I ordered Gisele in Mocha Frost. It is such an awesome color! Not shiny and looks very natural. The layers and slight curl at the bottom of the wig are just perfect. I am going to have the wig thinned out a little bit though as there is a lot of hair.

  17. 50 - 50
    I have two of these wigs. One I love. The lace front fell apart on the other after two days.
    By Lesley on 3/16/14
  18. Amazing !

  19. Breaks down really quickly
    I loved this wig when I got it. Great layers nice feel etc. But after wearing it for only a month it got the worst split ends and it looks like crap now. I have a wig that is way older than this one that still looks great so I don't know what is up with this one.
    By Heather on 1/6/14
  20. Amazing!
    I love the layers in this wig! Looks very natural for a synthetic and love the lace front!

  21. Very happy!!
    Finally after years of hating my thinning hair I relented and purchased a wig. This is my second wig that I have purchased and I could not be happier. I have had so many compliments on the color (27MB) and style. Took to my hairstylist and she cut some bangs and thinned it up a little bit around the face and crown. Really like the smart lace and very easy to care for!!

  22. So Natural
    I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Gisele. It looks so natural with its slight body and it reminds me of how my natural hair was. I would recommend this wig to anyone and everyone!
    By De De on 9/11/13
  23. Great wig!
    This wig looks natural and has just enough body at the ends of the layers. I had my stylist texturize and thin it a little in the crown because it was just a little bit too bulky for me. I like the fact that you can part it anyway you like since most wigs only part to your right. It's also easy and comfortable to wear.
    By K.M. on 8/12/13
  24. So natural!
    this wig is the perfect and style and haircut. It has lace in the front but it's ready to wear and so natural! I def recommend it!
    By I. Brown on 2/22/12
