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! :)

A personal question for you. How do you bring up to a new person you’re interested in that you wear wigs? I’m sure it’s easier for you because it’s your livelihood, but I’ve heard some horror stories about people freaking out when you tell them. I’m just worried when I meet someone I really dig that it’ll be hard to tell them. Anyway, sorry for all the angst, just wanting some advice. Have a great day!

And, might I add, hormones are also a huge pain in the you-know-what!

I was out of my prescriptions for spironolactone - a.k.a. aldactone - and metformin and lazy about refilling them for about a week.

Both of these pills are commonly prescribed to ladies with PCOS. The metformin controls two things: the amount of glucose created in the liver that is pumped into the blood stream and the sensitivity of body tissues to that glucose. Aldactone is a water pill that helps with bloat, but is also a testosterone antagonist, meaning that it minimizes the impact of androgens in women with PCOS related acne and hair loss.
