Jon Renau 4 Versus Jon Renau 6

Jon Renau Color Comparison - Color 4 and Color 6

Looking for that perfect dark brown shade? If you’re a fan of Jon Renau styles, you may be debating between a couple of different colors. While the classic 1 and 1B are definite blacks, you may struggle with knowing whether a four or a six is the better choice for you.

How different are these two colors? And more importantly, which will you be happiest with? Let’s take a closer look at a few things to remember about these shades.

Are You Knot Adverse?

First, ask yourself whether seeing the knotting on the lace front is something that really bothers you in a wig. As many Jon Renau wigs are the SmartLace front, which is a fabulous feature that mimics the appearance of a natural hairline, you will get the knotting happening.  However, they are always quick to improve the look of dark knots to make the hairline look much more natural as new wigs are introduced.

On darker colors, this knotting is more obvious and can look a little on the faker side versus lighter colors. The darker you go, the more noticeable this will be. So opting for a 4 instead of a 6 is going to make those knots just a touch darker.

This said, both colors will likely give the look of those darker knots, so if you really want to minimize it, you might instead want to go a touch lighter, opting for something like 8RH14 instead. If you are looking for a medium ashy brown, this is a great option.

Are You Looking For A Cooler Or Warmer Shade?

Getting back to the 4 versus 6 side of things, are you looking for a cooler brown or one that’s warmer? You’re going to

notice that the 4 gives off a much cooler feel compared to the six, which comes across as warmer, especially when in direct sunlight.

This can be an important distinction to note as some people do look far better in warmer versus cooler shades.

The Best Way To Think Of Four Versus 6

All in all, one of the best ways to describe the difference in these two colors is how close they are to black. The color 4 is going to look nearly black, but not quite. So if you are looking for an off-black shade – a color that is just a hint lighter than black and offers a bit more of a brown feel, 4 is likely your best bet.

On the other hand, if you want a color that is discernibly not black, then 6 is the better choice. This color does come across as very dark brown and should not ever be mistaken for black. With the 4 however, depending on the lighting, you very well may notice that your hair looks black.

So which color is your better bet? Consider these three points when selecting your perfect Jon Renau darker shade.
