I got this in the 99j but it looks more like a number 4. It's more brown than red. I think this is a great summer wig. The front part does look kind of wigish if you will. You may have to pluck and or play around with it. I've been wearing it the past week and it's grown on me. I'm gonna get it in 1b just because I really like the curls. Overall, if you know how to play around with it and make it look good, I recommend it. If you're unsure, you may wanna go with something with less volume and beginner friendly.
