Customizing the color of a human hair topper

Hello, my name is Chanelle Simpson and I'd like to introduce myself. After nearly a decade in the beauty industry, I recently took on the role of Education Coordinator for Jon Renau Salons & Spas. Because of this incredible new career path, I will be able to take my hairstylist knowledge and skillset to the next level in the alternative hair industry.

The Project is an acronym that stands for

For this project, my goal was to lighten a Jon Renau human hair topper by two shades. It was in color 4RN that I used the topper I mentioned earlier. Renau Naturals colors are the only ones that can be altered without causing damage.

What I Was Expecting

As a seasoned hairstylist, I anticipated that this project would be a piece of cake. Throughout my professional career, I've performed countless straight hair wigs bleach and tone jobs.

Notice of disclaimer

Because the results of coloring alternative human hair can be unpredictable, Jon Renau does not recommend it. Alterations should always be carried out by a professional stylist, preferably one who has experience with alternative hair types. Colours that cannot be changed are the Renau Natural colors. Other colors cannot be changed.

Before We Begin, I'd like to point out that

Keep in mind that when it comes to coloring, alternative human hair can be unpredictably unpredictable. This is due to the fact that each human hair system is constructed from hair derived from a variety of sources. Also, keep in mind that the environment in which you bleach your piece will determine the speed with which the color lifts from the fabric. Warmer temperatures will cause color to lift more quickly, while cooler temperatures will cause color to lift more slowly. While working on this project, the temperature in my studio was quite high.

Round 1 of the tournament

I divided my topper into sections and began applying the bleach at the base (roots) of each section. As if I were doing a touch-up on a client in the salon, I went about it the same way I would have approached this.
Right away, I noticed the color lifting to the point where I knew I needed to act quickly!
After that, I sprayed bleach on the ends, making sure they were completely saturated with bleach.
After I finished applying the bleach, I allowed it to sit for 30 minutes to do its job.
Afterwards, I rinsed the hair with cool running virgin hair wholesale distributors water and shampooed it with Jon Renau Argan Smooth Luxury Shampoo to finish.

As a result,

There had been an increase in the level of the topper to 7. I was aware that the color had brassy undertones, but I was confident that they would be corrected when I applied toner. I was, on the other hand, determined to take this topper to a whole new level.

Round 2 of the tournament

I went through all of the steps from Round 1 a second time. Heave a sigh of relief!

As a result,

After another round of bleaching, I was finally able to achieve the results I desired! The topper had been raised to the eighth level.

What I've Discovered

Remember how I said I thought this project would be straightforward? Oh my goodness, was I wrong! A completely different type of chemistry exists in alternative human hair when compared to the biological human hair found on someone's head. To achieve the best results, it is necessary to use a variety of application techniques and to be patient. Realizing this was a humbling experience for me, but I'm grateful that I now understand!

Round 2 (Bonus Round)

I decided to use some balayage (a freehand highlighting technique) to add some dimension and brightness to my hairstyle.

Toning is important.

When it came time to finish the process, I applied a honey hair closures frontals blonde toner to achieve a honey blonde color and remove the brassy undertones.

Considering what I know now, I would approach this project in a completely different way if I were to do it over again. I would work in smaller sections and experiment with a variety of application techniques to achieve the most even lift possible because alternative hair is so unpredictable when coloring.

Take-outs and delivery services

The most important thing to remember when it comes to coloring and customizing alternative hair systems is that education is key. The application of alternative hair coloring should always be carried out by a trained professional. My goal with this blog was to demonstrate what is possible when you have a stylist alter your human hair wig or topper. I hope you enjoyed reading it. I hope you've been prompted to experiment with your wig or topper in some way!
