  1. Good Thing Going
    I have purchased two Heidi wigs so far and she has her good points and her bad points. That being said, I'll not stray from her again for a long time.

    Good Points:

    - Gorgeous style
    - Thick, wavy hair that always gets compliments
    - Color options are fantastic
    - Easy to style, bangs can be pinned back for more polished look
    - Can be "fluffed up" for glam look, made sleek for every day wear
    - Not too long for an older woman and not too short for someone looking for a "young" wig

    Bad Points:

    - The cap is a little tight in circumference (do NOT buy a large cap. It is only bigger at the crown of the wig... which is weird and not helpful at all, as it only gives you a giant poof of hair like an '80s beauty queen)
    - She snarls quickly at the nape. Luckily the snarls are hidden but it seems insane that such a pricey wig would get "ratty" at the nape so quickly (after one or two wears)

    Despite all of that, I wouldn't trade her for the world. I made the mistake of buying a "sister wig" of Heidi (Julianne) and it looks ridiculous. I was thinking I would circumvent the "ratty nape" issue by getting a shorter version of Heidi. I did my research (Youtube videos, blogs, etc...) before buying Julianne but when I got her... I was shocked at how "Shirley Temple" it was. Couldn't calm her down for the life of me. Lesson learned.

    In terms of color, my first purchase was the much-loved 12FS8. It's stunning. People stop me on the street to ask me where I get my hair done. It's a bit of a bolder color in terms of root to tip (very much the "I have dark hair but a gorgeous dye job that is a good 2 weeks overdue - but I did it on purpose" look).

    For my second Heidi, I went with 14/26S10. A warmer, gentler blonde. It has a hint of red in some strands (not as "Ice Queen" as 12SF8) and the roots are less jarring. Amazing variance of color - unfathomable how much it would actually cost to dye your hair this color. I love both!

    Heidi is almost comically shiny straight out of the box. Hit her with some dry shampoo to take it down a notch (avoid the roots - this will make them look grey/brown) and brush her out in the sunlight. I also use "scalp powder" (not sure what it's called... part filler powder?) around the edges of my own hairline to blend in the hair to the wig.

    I'm learning as I go along - having to shop online, sight-unseen, is the pits but I feel pretty lucky having found Heidi.

  2. Heidi
    This wig has a wierd shape at the top. yes, the hair is soft and flows. But the wig looks quite different from the picture. The shape at the top is horrible. lastly, the lace on the wig looks so unatural.I cant pull it all back to achieve that very natural look you would want to get from a LACE wig.

  3. Disappointed
    Very disappointed with this wig, first of all it has a weird shape at the top because of the perma tease, it made my head look square. I also had trouble making the bangs fall right and look good. The only way I could make it look halfway decent was to put the sides partially up with clips. The waves are beautiful until the wig starts getting ratty which happened rather quickly. My first wig was Jon Renau Zara which also got all frizzy and ratty in the back I thought due to the length , I bought Heidi hoping it would last longer being shorter in length but the exact same thing happened. After washing according to instructions the waves fell out. It looked so bad I had to steam it to smooth it out which of course took the waves out entirely and now it looks even worse. Oh and the cap stretched out a ridiculous amount right away too. So did my Zara, maybe it's time to try a new brand considering that these don't seem to last.

  4. One of my favorite beachy wave wigs
    I love Heidi. I like that the waves are very relaxed as opposed to the sister wigs Julianne and Scarlett. Heidi is the better of the 2 imo because it's not as tightly waved like Julianne and it's not puffy on top like scarlett because you get the full mono top. Mine is in color #6 but I also had Shaded sun and it was very pretty too. Comfortable and not too much length for someone who doesn't care for long wigs like me. Perfectly realistic wig!

  5. Nice wig
    Thank you to Brandy who was so wonderful and patient on the phone while I ordered. I was undessisive and she was so helpful.

    I chose the color 6/33 it's very pretty and a good match with the human hair I ordered in the same color.

    This is my first time wearing a synthetic wig to work. The people that do know I wear wigs were impressed that it wasn't really hair. Hard to tell.

    I have been wearing wigs for 15 and until two years ago I wore custom made wigs. They suctioned to my head and bangs were required. So since I've only recently ventured out in the real wig world I keep bangs. First since I've always had them I look weird in the mirror without and how do you go to work one day with no bangs and not spend the entire day answering uncomfortable questions. I'm telling you this because I was nervous about having bangs cut in. I had one other synthetic (Courtney) and bangs didn't work so well with it. This one is pretty good. They are a little light in the wind and want to stick up but overall if you want bangs Heidi seems to handle them well.

    I'm impressed with the cap. I am totally bald and it fits great. I also have extremely sensitive skin and I've had no problem at all with irritation.

    The beach wave pattern is great. I love it . I always try to achieve this look with human haor wigs and always fail. So how great is it I can buy one ready to go?!

    The perma tease isn't too bad. It looks a little pouffy to me but I know that's just because I'm not used to it. It doesn't look that way to anyone else.

    Overall I am very happy

  6. Love, Love, LOVE!
    This wig is beautiful and so wonderful. I am a loyal Jon Renau customer and they didn't disappoint with Heidi. The color I got is 22f16. It's a beautiful light blonde.

  7. I think I received a lemon.
    I was excited to try the Heidi after watching many reviews on YouTube and reading all of the positive comments here. I couldn't wait! I ordered it in 12FS8. I have the EasiPart HD in this color and really like it.

    My order arrived today 9 days after I placed the order (not bad for shipping to Northern BC!). When I opened the box I was so disappointed. The color was brassy, and when I put it on it just looked ridiculous. Very puffy on top and back, lots of split ends along the hairline. It looked like a wig, nothing like the pictures I have seen of it. The cap seemed stretched out and slipped all over the place. The hair below the crown was kinked and looked unnatural. I tried combing it and changing the part, but it didn't help. I didn't want to disturb it too much as right away I knew I would be sending it back.

    I'm wondering if I may have received a 'lemon'. This wig looked nothing like the pictures I have seen and didn't seem to match any of the reviews I watched prior to ordering. I have other JR products which are all great quality. This just wasn't. The bottom of the box was punctured, and the wig was not in the mesh protector. I almost think I received someone else's return by mistake. It just seemed off. I've always had great service from this site. Looking forward to seeing if my exchange works for me!

  8. Great Wig
    Great wig, I have gotten so many compliments. I lost my hair to chemo and this looks like my hair used to look.

  9. Best looking wig I've purchased
    This wig is so natural looking. I finally am turning men's heads again after trying several that didn't have that effect. As one of my friends told me, "That wig ROCKS!" My sister said, "Who'd want natural hair when a wig can look that good?!" I wouldn't go that far--I'm still waiting for my hair to grow in after chemo, but when it does I am going to try to replicate Heidi's style with my natural hair. The color is gorgeous (30A27S4)--I always dyed my hair red but this is more of a reddish tinted, light brown with golden highlights. with darker roots. It's shiny and tousled, sexy and sophisticated. Note: all of the synthetic wigs I've purchased, including this one, tend to fray with time and only last about 3 months, so don't be disappointed when that happens. They have a limited shelf life. I've already purchased my second Heidi and will stick with it. Best ever!

  10. Very natural
    The main picture from Jon Renau really doesn't do this wig justice. The curl is the most natural I have seen from a synthetic and it falls beautifully. Have it in 3 different colors and love all of them.

  11. Great wig but very itchy
    This wig is really amazing. Everyone things it's really on me. The only problem it the lace front is extremely itchy and it looks like it's fraying and I've only worn the wig about 4 times.

  12. Wow, Heidi is Amazing!
    I've been a wig wearer for more than 20 years. In the beginning, for fun, but in the last decade out of necessity from chemo treatments in which my hair never fully recovered.

    Having said this, I have owned many wigs and always played it kind of "safe" with styles and colors. I decided to move outside my comfort zone and bought Heidi in 30A27S4, Shaded Peach. I am just blown away by this wig. It is so BoHo cool and did not require the usual modifications I've had to make to my other wigs. All I had to do was bleach those black knots and tone down the shine with the Jon Renau wig wand. It looks so natural, I can't stop looking in mirrors.

    If I could give Heidi 10 stars, I would.

    FYI, should you decide to bleach those black knots that are common with lace front/monofilament wigs, be aware that this could reduce the lifespan of your wig.

  14. Great summer look!
    I tried Heidi because of the Rave reviews. It is a fun summer beach look-and the beauty of it is that it is supposed to look slightly messy, which wigs eventually look messy anyway.
    I normally wear my all time favorite, Jon Renau's Adriana. This is a bit of a departure for me. To me the top on mine is a little too thick and looks a little wiggy. But I just got it and think it will mellow in the next week or two. My wig stylist went ga-ga for it and said I should wear this wig all the time instead of Adriana?!!! She said it was her favorite-and and she has seen dozens of styles on me. I do have to comment that the hairline looks amazing!!! Even I can't see the mesh hairline-and I am looking for it! Also, thank you Jon Renau for making the roots on the hairline not as dark in the rooted colors. When the roots are dark or too dark along the hairline, the wig then looks fake. I wear the 30A27S4 Shaded Peach.

  15. Amazing wig!
    I love everything about this wig. I began wearing wigs after I lost all of my hair during chemotherapy. I splurged on this wig with the NYE 30% off sale as my Christmas present. I don't regret it at all. The beachy waves are literally perfect and it's not too long, too thick or too shiny and it doesn't tangle very much. If it does, typically at the nape of the neck, I just spritz some synthetic leave in and comb with a wide tooth comb and it's good to go. I also will spritz the leave in conditioner and scrunch the curls and it makes them bouncy. :) I would give it 5 stars if the cap were just a bit bigger. It says average fit, but it's a little small for my head. I have always worn Noriko and they fit my head perfectly. I wish I could have gotten this in a large cap. Other than that, literally no complaints. It's pretty perfect! FYI: Jon Renau's 12FS8 color is almost the same as Noriko's Creamy Toffee color. :)

  16. Happy Day
    When I opened the wig box (isn't that fun!) I shrieked with joy! It is one beautiful unit. My husband looks at me so differently when I wear this, the wave is beautiful, the 12fs8 is a very natural looking rooted blonde (mine has a shorter length of root than the pic). It doesn't look like it in the brunette but has a ton of hair, but is soft, smooth and not bushy. The hair is definitely NOT as coarse as most wigs look. I just thoroughly love this wig. I'm babying it, making sure I brush frequently. First time I wore it was at a family function, they thought it was extensions. Now, next is Julianne.. Worth every penny.

  17. Best wig ever
    I've been shopping at and wearing wigs for years, and have tried several styles and brands. The best have been certain styles from Jon Renau and Envy.

    Heidi is the... best... wig... ever! Please never stop carrying it!

    First of all, I got sick of lace front wigs because I have to wear tape to keep my wigs on and no matter how careful I was, the lace top would either eventually fray or else it would show because I would have to adjust it so that the hairline covered the tape. Heidi has an excellent, strong lace front and the hairline starts almost immediately, without leaving a bunch of lace front left flapping on your forehead, so it places perfectly with my natural hairline and doesn't leave anything showing.

    Secondly, I like longer wigs (I consider this a long wig) but I don't like spending the amount of time it takes to carefully comb out the back hair at the end of the day (where it's been rubbing and tangling against your back). For some reason, Heidi is not bad. It might be because it is bouncy and tousled and really doesn't lay next to your back. And because it is meant to look tousled, it doesn't take much combing to get it nice and back in shape. Daily application of spray conditioner is a must, though, once it is back on the wig base.

    Third, it is a lot of hair. Sometimes wigs with so much hair don't look that real. I'm very sensitive to that. I want people to think what I'm wearing is my real hair. Heidi looks real, because it moves so naturally. The hair isn't particularly soft, but once again, it looks and moves naturally because of the wavy curls styled into it.

    The only thing I didn't like at first was the zig-zag parted hairline. That looks great on real hair, but on wigs it looks fake. However, when I changed the part to a straight line, the part stayed where I wanted it.

    When I wear Heidi I feel sexy and confident, and that's what it's all about. (I'm even getting interested glances from the best-looking guy in my agency, and he usually doesn't look twice at me!) I have it in 30A27S4 and love the color.

    P.S. I am horribly unphotogenic and I look a lot better in person with Heidi than I do in the photo, honest... so don't judge Heidi based on my face! :-)

  18. Simply Beautiful
    I've been wearing only Jon Renau wigs for the last four years now. My favorites are Julia Gisele and Courtney. I wasn't initially too impressed with this style (in photos) when it first came out. Compared to the others I mentioned it looked decidedly less glamorous. However on a whim I decided to give it a try. I was a little concerned I'd have to send it back. But when I tried it on I was immediately taken by it... For starters I have never seen a wig on the market with a curl pattern like this. I have been wearing wigs full time since age 9 (I'm now 41). I've experienced the evolution of wigs first hand (I have Alopecia Areata). The beauty of this wig is in it's simplicity. The only other wig I've had in my life with a similar curl pattern was human hair. It's incredibly natural. And this departure from the normally straight styles that I've been wearing is refreshing! I'm very pleased with this wig and thrilled to add it into my style rotation. I purchased it in a color 6 (I usually stick with the darker brunettes ranging from 6 down to 1b.) I'm very glad I gave this one a try...

  19. Love Heidi!
    I love the natural type wave in this style. This is my second John Renau wig and it's my favorite so far. It feels so soft and the waves are natural. I bought the color 12FS8 and love it. It is blonder in front than in the back and it has no RED tones with a natural dark roote. I'm not crazy about so many reds and ambers in all the brown color wigs. Wish there would be more options of light browns and browns with highlighted blondes with no red tones.
    By Trish on 7/28/14
  20. Absolutely beautiful! My favourite wig to date:)
    I just love the is PERFECT!! The density and amount of wave is just PERFECT:) As soon as I tried it on I loved everything about it. I really REALLY hope this wig never gets is now my full-time wig. I have since ordered some more backups in the same beautiful 8/32 shade and am also trying a couple of other colors:) There is also no shine whatsoever and the hair fibre looks so real and natural it's incredible! I highly recommend this wig!
    By Ciella on 5/30/14
  21. Gorgeous!
    This is may favorite wig. It just looks right as soon as you put it on without all the fussing. I ordered Strawberry Syrup and the color is amazing! It is more dark blonde with red highlights. My only complaint is it frizzes pretty badly after only a few wears.
    By Penny on 4/15/14
  22. Beautiful beautiful!!
    The style of this wig is so natural and relaxed--just the way I always want my hair to look at the beach but never does! The fibers are smooth and so soft the wig is comfortable and lightweight. I'm struggling with the color though--so hard to tell what they will look like from the small web pics. I ordered FS27 Strawberry Syrup which is more light brown and blonde than reddish as I'd expected maybe because my own hair is red so the contrast is quite sharp.Thinking of ordering the color rings. Other than that I highly recommend this wig! I also have the Raquel Welch Showstopper which I love but it tangles like mad!
    By Ruthie on 1/22/14
  23. One of my faves!
    Great quality and construction. Comfortable and minimal tangling. Beach waves are perfect!!! My daughters always tell me that it's their favorite! I have since ordered another and will continue to exclusively order from the Jon R line as I am yet to be disappointed. (I also have the Gisele and Adrienne)

  24. Heidi
    Absolutely beautiful. Chose glazed mocha and it is stunning. Falls so naturally and is very complimentary to one's face. Will order again.
