Top 6 Brunette Wig Colors

Posted on February 19 2021

The most common hair colors in the world are brown and black. Despite this, blonde tresses get all the attention. Every day, hair salons are full of clients requesting platinum, honey, and ash blondes.
Listen, only 2% of the world actually has naturally golden hair. This fact translates to a large fraction of the world walking around as brunettes. As such, there are so many people with a preference for the gorgeous hues of chestnut, chocolate, and caramel. 
If you prefer your wigs in the brunette variety, you are far from alone. Still, it can be hard to choose just one shade. With all the brands out there, there are hundreds and hundreds of brunette varieties.
To narrow down your choices, we chose our top-selling brands and then rounded up our customer’s favorite hues. This list includes preferred brunette wigs from Raquel Welch, Ellen Wille, Jon Renau, and Rene of Paris. Get ready to want them all!

Glazed Hazelnut (829S+) by Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch Color

This Raquel Welch hue is beautifully three-dimensional, thanks to a rich medium brown base and natural ginger highlights on top.

Check out this color on Sparkle by Raquel Welch (featured above). As you can see, this color looks stunning in shorter wig varieties, but if you prefer long wigs, you still can’t go wrong! 


Black Coffee (RL4/6) by Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch Color

Don’t be confused by the name. Raquel Welch wigs in the Black Coffee color are brunette, not black.
Consider this hue your traditional no-nonsense brunette. No-nonsense doesn’t mean boring though. This dark brown color on Crowd Pleaser by Raquel Welch (featured above) is blended seamlessly with a medium brown to create a strong bold brunette.

Dark Chocolate Mix by Ellen Wille

Ellen Wille Color

To better visualize this hue, picture a mug full of hot chocolate. This stunning color on Code Mono by Ellen Wille (featured above) is a dark brown with light reddish-brown highlights tossed in.
Dark Chocolate Mix in the middle of the color temperature spectrum. It isn’t warm or cool - it’s neutral. Human hair wigs tend to run warmer though, so this hue may look different in that fiber.

Hot Chocolate Mix by Ellen Wille

Ellen Wille Color

This color is rather similar to the Dark Chocolate Mix above, but it’s warmer. For this color, Ellen Wille took a medium brown and blended it with a reddish-brown and light auburn. 

Check out this color on Code Mono by Ellen Wille featured above.

As this is a warmer shade of brown, it will look slightly different on human hair versus synthetic hair. Human hair colors are warmer in tone already and a warm hue will contribute to that difference.

Chocolate Frost R by Rene of Paris 

Rene of Paris Color

Chocolate Frost may sound like a tasty frozen treat, but it’s actually a delicious brunette wig color. The base is dark brown but it is highlighted with honey and platinum. Check out the customer reviews for this stunning color on Reese by Rene of Paris (featured above). 
For this entry, we single out the rooted Chocolate Frost, simply because that shade is a customer favorite. In many wigs, you can find this same color in a non-rooted variety.

6F27 by Jon Renau

Jon Renau Colors

This color is a deep brown with bold red-gold blonde highlights. It’s a good choice for those toying with the idea of a brighter shade, especially on a long beautiful wig like Zara by Jon Renau (featured above).
If you aren’t familiar, the letters in Jon Renau wig colors indicate what type of color it is. For instance, in 6F27, the F tells you this shade is a blended color with the darker color solid at the nape.
Jon Renau offers 6F27 in both human and synthetic hair. The color shows up beautifully on either fiber, but do note that human hair wigs will always have a warmer hue. This means it will have less contrast than the same color in synthetic fiber.
