Karlie is my straight Julianne!
Last year, I fell in love with Jon Renau's Julianne style. I loved it so much, I bought her and Scarlett to use for things like going to the supermarket or when J just needed some down time and washing. Both wigs came in the lovely Toffee Truffle (FS6/27/30) and were pretty interchangeable. I felt like having both gave me a bit of added realism - no one's hair looks EXACTLY the same every day.
Then came the boredom... curly hair every day for 4 months turned into the same ol' thing. I decided I needed to change it up. At this point, I started looking for a straight option. I checked all the stats on JR's wigs and found that Karlie came the closest in hair measurements to the Julianne. I ordered her in Caramel Ribbon (6F/27). Unfortunately, they don't make Karlie in Toffee Truffle (c'mon JR! it's a gorgeous blend! it should be EVERYWHERE!) The colors are a close enough match to pull it off, though.
Karlie is exactly what I expected her to be. Hair felt great right out of the box, looks great. Very easy to recreate the styles in the photos and have some fun with her. I've been wearing her pretty much since I got her. Wish there was a less expensive sister wig for her so I could give her a rest now and then, but I can always swap her with Scar or Jul if necessary. The only thing I have an issue with - and it's very slight - is just that I'm experiencing a little bit of shedding. We'll see how she holds up!
