The differences between these wavy BelleTress wigs!

From a customer email:

How does the Vienna Roast and the Biscotti Babe compare to Belle Madames Carlotta? I love the idea of the lack of permatease with Biscotti babe; any feedback on the similarities and differences between Carlotta and the two BelleTress wigs? As usual, thank you so much for your help! 

Carlotta is shorter. That is the biggest difference. Carlotta SF by Belle Madame is a seasonally available style that is slightly longer than chin length.

The M&M is the BelleTress style closest in overall length to the Carlotta, but Carlotta is wavy and M&M is more of a round barrel curl.

Vienna Roast is more of a shoulder-length deconstructed corkscrew curl with all the points facing downward.

Biscotti Babe is a tiny bit longer than Vienna Roast, but the curls are more traditional, softer, and a bit bigger than the Vienna Roast (but not as big as the ones on M&M, which is a Marilyn Monroe cut.) Biscotti Babe is essentially the ideal length for a "lob" on most women.

Another thing people wonder is how something like Vienna Roast compared to their new Amaretto wig.

Amaretto has an even more deconstructed wave! The shape of the wave is a corkscrew, like with Vienna Roast, but it is even more relaxed on the Amaretto -- and the Kona, by extension, since they have the same wave pattern, just different cuts. Kona isn't a "lob." Instead, it is more of a wavy shag/bob hybrid cut.

Columbia has the most relaxed wave of them all. It is big, flowing, and very open. This wig is also a little longer than the other "lobs" because it isn't as tightly curled. This gives Columbia a sloppy chic Boho vibe that the others do not share.

I hope that helps clarify things a little! :)

Synthetic or Human Hair? Which is better?

So the advantages of human hair are that it looks as real as you are going to get, because it is, it is going to last longer, and you can style it like you want easier.

The disadvantages are that you have to style it, it is a big upfront investment, and typically this makes it more difficult to purchase a backup wig or to be able to switch styles frequently, like you can with synthetics.

Hi there, wig lover! I was recently forwarded a link to a thread on Alopecia World by my business partner. He thought that I might want to chime in on this because he felt really bad for the girl who wrote this post.

It's called, “I feel like wigs are dominating my life.” Here is a screen capture of that conversation, omitting her image for privacy. (This is exactly the same info you would see if you publicly searched for this post.)
