Hi folks Kathleen here featuring Carlotta SF in Danish Blonde Root and comparing the DBR color with Champagne With Apple Pie by BelleTress on Anatolia. I was going to do a straight up review of Carlotta SF until I came to the realization that a root color of 14 was perfect for me when it comes to blondes. Let me explain. I do not like the harsh contrast that you so often see in blonde rooted colors. Folks with dark bio hair like it because it looks realistic on them. My problem is in reality to dye/bleach/process your hair to these super light blonde shades would overly damage your hair. Over time your hair would look and feel like straw and certainly wouldn’t be soft and shiny like a wig. So eh not so realistic…in my humble opinion 😏.
Take a gander at image 1 & 2. I think you’d be hard pressed to find a more realistic believable root color than this. This dark neutral blonde root matches my brows beautifully. I can also say this is about as light as I could ever safely dye my hair to.
I resisted trying out this color for a long time. I thought is might be too gold/too garish. Heathers color spotlight is the reason I finally tried it. I love this color. Danish Blonde Root is a dynamic warm but not overly gold blonde. The root melts into the blonde beautifully. Btw I’ve had 5 Carlottas and they have all been different. Some curlier than others some with more permatease but all beautiful. This one is my least curly wig. Barely a wave and I still love her. She has low density and very little permatease. Such a believable color and wave. An everyday style with or without make up. I love a wig that doesn’t require make up. 😉
I clipped the bangs back to show off this amazing lace front. Tip: What a great way to train the hair to lift up and back (like images 4 & 5 illustrate.)
Carlotta SF is slightly longer in the front than the back. This gives you the feeling of some length yet the back is nice and short so cooler on hot days. I hate anything on my neck when the weather turns hot. On the other hand when the weather turns colder the back of Carlotta SF is short enough that she won’t rub up against sweaters etc.
At 4” the back of Carlotta is a perfect length. No rubbing on collars etc.
Image 7 shows off this great mono part and how light this root is. It’s a neutral dark blonde I would say. Image 8 is my favorite blonde, Champagne With Apple Pie. Her root is also a #14 but much warmer which looks beautiful blended into CWAP. To my eyes the root on CWAP is lighter than the root on DBR. I have a few wigs in CWAP and the color and how light it is varies. I don’t mind though they all look amazing. In one of Heathers videos she explained that its harder to get consistency with a light root and that is one reason you don’t see them more often. I hope more manufacturers offer light roots. So many blondes I would love if they just had a light root.
Image 9 compares the color samples and descriptions of these light rooted blondes. The first word to describe Champagne With Apple Pie I would disregard. No way would I consider CWAP a cool color. A soft peachy beige neutral to warm pale blonde with a warm dark blonde root is how I would describe her. 😉
Image 10- 13 were photos taken in my kitchen with natural indirect sunlight coming from my windows. No artificial lights were on. Side by side you can see Champagne With Apple Pie has almost a soft peachy cast to her vs Danish Blonde Root that is a dynamic soft gold color. I love them both especially because of their roots. Both BelleTress and CysterWigs house brand do a gorgeous job transitioning the root colors into the body color of these blondes.
Both of these blondes are about the same value (how light or dark they are) and have similar intensity (how saturated or vivid their colors are) CWAP is a tad lighter & softer or more muted..less intense than Danish Blonde Root.
In image 13 the roots look very similar don’t they? CWAP is warmer than DBR but they both look kinda dark… not very light you’re thinking huh? This is one of the reasons I prefer lighter roots on blondes. You will get shadows cast from the hair styles themselves which will make the root look darker in various lighting conditions anyway.
Image 14 illustrates how light these #14 roots are. By looking down on them no shadows are cast to make the roots look darker. This image was taken on my covered deck on a partly cloudy day so the light was fairly even and indirect so you can really see how light a #14 root is. Both root colors are a perfect choice for these two blonde.
Love image 15…This is a very accurate color photo taken in even natural indirect light. Both of these blondes are dynamic. Btw I love this length wig obviously..lol 😜
Image 17 illustrates these two blondes in a little lower indirect natural lighting condition. Both look so natural so believable.
I love the natural effortless wave pattern on Carlotta. Carlotta SF in Danish Blonde Root is so realistic…from her natural blonde color to her root color to her lace front and mono part. I adore this wig.
The take away here is if you are like me and want beautiful natural blondes with soft light roots you will love Champagne With Apple Pie by BelleTress and Danish Blonde Root by CysterWigs….enjoy!
