I have three Julias. I purchased my first one when they first came out, then a second one when Jon Renau offered a new color (1BRH30), and just recently this one. I got this third Julia in FS10 -- Toffee Syrup, for two reasons. One, FS10 is being phased out, is only on a handful of wigs, and only on a couple that have a full mono top and lace front, Julia being one of them.
Two, my biohair is in about the same style and length as Julia, and I keep it dark (about a 4/33 combination). Julia enables me to have a bit more hair, and to look as if it is my own hair just better styled, and to vary the color. It is also like having maintenance-free hair -- no frizzing, no growth, etc., i.e., one of the reasons to have a wig at all.
Full disclosure, I did trim about 3 inches off my second Julia, the 1BRH30 because I thought perhaps it would be more manageable. I did not trim my first one, a 4, nor the new one. I can clip them back into a low pony, quite believably.
I did not know the techniques to tame strays and to train the bangs out of my face when I got my first Julia and so I left her unworn for a long time. Now, some years later, I know how to work with her and she can be styled to be just the way you want her. Watch Heather's videos on steaming, warming, training, etc. I also feel, now, that maybe a 4 is too dark for me and it is not dimensional, the way rooted colors or the FS10 and 1BRH30 are. I almost gave the first one away. Now I am glad I didn't!
For comparison, I…
