I have been wanting to try Voltage since I began wearing wigs!
I decided to order Voltage (there is also a Voltage Elite) and give it a try, I am so happy I ordered it; this one is so fun and right up my alley with its layers, texture and wispy bangs.
As I mentioned there is a Voltage Elite but I decided to order the less expensive version. The photo above shows the open cap construction, no lace front and a small amount of permatease. The specs are front 4″, crown 5″, sides 3.5″, back 3″ and a nape of 2.25″.
The color I choose was my usual Raquel Welch color, SS Golden Wheat SS14/88, a medium honey blonde with soft gold blonde highlights and medium brown roots. The back has lots of layers and flips, again exactly what I love in a wig!
The photo above compares SS Golden Wheat with Jon Renau Shaded Praline, as you can see SS Golden Wheat is lighter in shade than Shaded Praline (12FS8).
I also compared SS Golden Wheat to Noriko Creamy Toffee R, which is more of a light golden brown and beige-platinum blonde highlights.
Ellen Willie’s Sand Multi rooted is a dark ash blonde and light caramel brown with hints of strawberry blonde and medium roots.
Finally I compared Ellen Wille’s Caramel Rooted; a medium honey blonde, dark ash blonde, and medium golden blonde with dark brown roots.
Its easy to see from all my comparisons I really enjoy rooted styles, on me they look so natural and I find that “my comfort” zone.
The only drawback that I found with Voltage is the amount of hair on the top; every Raquel Welch wig I have had so far has a lot of hair in the front, this isn’t a bad thing, but it is somewhat overwhelming on me. I took care of this very easily by thinning the front out just a small amount, the pictures below were taken after I thinned the front.
As far a styling Voltage she can be styled in several different ways. I added headbands, clips, bobby pins, etc., all were super cute accessories.
I have no doubt that this will become one of my favorite wigs, I only wish I hadn’t waited so long to try it!
