What does it mean for a wig to be pre permed?

Angie By Jon Renau – Prepermed, Hand Tied, Lace front and Mono Top Wig.

What will my wig look like when I receive it? You must remember that manufacturer’s will style their wigs in order to sell their styles.  Sometimes a manufacturer’s image will be very different to the actual wig.  Especially prepermed wigs will be styled quite a lot by the manufacturer.




Angie  by Jon Renau is just one of those wigs that is pre permed. Pre permed means it has a curl when it comes out of the box and will keep its body after it has been washed.  When you first open the box it is really curly so it gives you an option to straighten it completely or leave some loose waves in it. It has unbelievable bounce in the hair.  The picture on the right is the manufacturers image after styling.  Manufacturer pictures can look very different to the actual product so we like to photograph the product so you get to see exactly what you get when your wig arrives.

I have included images of the wig straight of the box so you can see how curly it is and then images after running a hair straightener through it.  It is entirely up to the wearer how curly, wavy or straight it can be.  It is a great wig with lots of versatility  in regards to styling.


The cap features a mono top with a lace front and is 100% Hand tied.  Hand tied means that each hair has been hand tied directly into the cap and there is no wefting.  With a hand tied wig the hair is evenly distributed and gives you the upmost realistic look.  They are more expensive as it is very labor intensive to manufacture a wig like this.  If you run your hands through the wig you can’t see any wefting as there is none.  The first image is the inside cap of the wig.



And this is the wig straight out of the box:










After using the hair straightener on a low heat setting:









This was the first time I have had time to have a play with a Jon Renau human hair wig and I was very excited about this wig.  It has a beautiful feel of the hair which is remy, and the hair has a lovely bounce to it.  It looks gorgeous with a few long loose waves left in the style.  It is expensive to buy a human hair wig but there is a vast difference between a cheap human hair and an expensive one.  No one would be able to tell if you were wearing the Angie Wig by Jon Renau.

Angie would have to be one of my favourite wigs and it certainly lived up to my expectations.  I was able to style this wig with a hair straightener with very little time and I am not a hairdresser.

At Wigs Online we can order the Angie in for you within 7 – 10 days if we don’t have it in stock. It comes in many more colours.  You can see more Jon Renau Human Hair and Synthetic wigs on our website,

Difference in Double Drawn and Single Drawn

The market is swamped with so many hair extensions at all prices.  You can be forgiven if you are having problems working out why some are so cheap and other are so expensive.  Quality is a huge factor when it comes to Hair Extensions and prices.

What is Single Drawn?

Single Drawn hair is  hair that was obtained  from one donor as a ponytail. Because it is kept together naturally the donor will have different lengths of hair. Some people like this as they feel it looks more naturally but the ends will not look as full and even.  they can look a little straggly at the ends.


What is double drawn hair?

Double drawn will tangle less than single drawn hair and is the highest quality you can find.  By hand the shorter lengths of hair are removed so it will take more than one donor to make up a weft.  All of the hair will have an uniform length and look much fuller than single drawn.

What do I Buy?

Double drawn is more expensive as it may take 9 – 10 lbs of single drawn hair to make 1 lb of double drawn hair. Also, the labour involved in making double drawn is much more intensive and lengthy which is reflected in the price. Its a personal preference to how much hair you want, the price you are prepared to pay and how much hair you need to integrate with your own.



Above you can see an image of a Single drawn weft and a double drawn weft.  The double drawn weft is easy to see as it looks much healthier and fuller on the ends.

All of the wefts at Wigs Online are Double drawn and are kept at reasonable prices as much as possible.

$600 Budget for Human Hair Wigs.

We have all seen very cheap Human Hair Wigs advertised on Ebay or overseas websites and many clients get disappointed because the freight is expensive. Also,  if the wig isn’t right its so expensive to return to somewhere like China.

If you are not happy with your purchase you can return the item for a refund or exchange without costly freight charges.  And we have a showroom in Vermont, Victoria which you are welcomed to visit by appointment.

Styling a Human Hair Wig

Human Hair Wigs can be difficult as they do need styling after each wash.  Synthetic hair wigs are treated so they bounce back in to shape after each wash.  Choosing between a synthetic or human hair wig is a personal preference.  Some people just love the feel and look of human hair wigs while others do not.


At Wigs Online we deal with Jon Renau as one of our suppliers of human hair wigs.  The quality of their wigs are unsurpassable.  I read an article on their blog this morning and thought it had some great points to remember when styling your human hair wig.

There are a few tips that should be kept in mind when styling a human hair wig:

Always wash the wig with a good quality shampoo and conditioner.  At Wigs Online we have a specially formulated Shampoo, Conditioner and Argan oil.

Do not rub the hair so hard to tangle the fibres.  Just blot with a towel the excess water.

Always use a wide tooth comb and start gently combing from the bottom of the hair.

Style the hair in sections  using only a moderate heat.  Not too much heat.

Use the cool button on your hair dryer if you have one.

If you need to use a flat iron use a heat protector spray on the hair before you start blowdrying the hair.

Hairpieces – A Growing trend

Hair pieces are the easiest way to add volume and length to your hair without costly trips to the hairdresser. No experience needed. Just a little time and very little effort involved.

They are available in human hair and synthetic hair. It’s a personal preference to which one suits you best. Human hair can require some styling where synthetic ones hold their shape without any styling at all. Years ago synthetic hair pieces didn’t look very real but these days they look nearly as good as any human hair piece. Human hair pieces are more costly but will last longer.

Managing to get a perfect pony tail or bun every time is actually impossible without a hair piece. With the hair piece you can look like you just walked out of the hair dresser. There is no denying that when we look great we certainly feel great and with that comes confidence.

Some hair pieces are attached via a claw clip or a drawstring or both. It ‘s a good idea to put you hair up in a small bun first. If you are using a claw clip then you can simply clip the claw clip over the top of your bun. And if it’s a drawstring you can put it over the top of the bun and secure it by pulling the drawstring till it feels firm. If you feel that you want more security you can use a few bobby pins to secure it in place.

And another option for those who want the quickest messy bun is the hair wraps. They are simply scrunchies with hair to wrap around your own bun. They can be as messy or neat as you like. You can throw your hair up on a hot balmy day and forget all about it while you still look glamorous and feel fresh. These pieces are my absolute favourites. I always pack one in my bag when travelling.

Matching a colour for a hair piece can be a little difficult but just a few things to take into account. Firstly, don’t forget that when you pull your hair into a bun the underneath of your hair is usually darker than the tips. So you may want to match that rather than the tips of your hair. Secondly most person’s hair is not a straight colour so sometimes if the colour match is not perfect it will probably still blend. And finally, if you use gel to put your hair in a bun then it will certainly be darker than your own hair.

Hair Pony tails are becoming a great trend for formal and informal occasions. If you look through some of the celebrities pictures at some of the high profile events, you will see lots of pony tails. Have a look at the gallery on Glamour Magazine for some of the A list Hair Trends – Pony Tails for 2014. You can acheive these looks with no costly hairdresser appointments involved. They are easy to wear and can be used over and over again.

At Wigs Online we stock many brands of hair pieces. Check out our section of Hair pieces and see what style you want to achieve. It’s so easy for everyone. And if you are finding difficulty in choosing a colour, give us a call or send us a small sample of your hair and we will match it for you.
