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 of 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! 🙂

    So helpful … thank you very much for these comparisons. I’m currently waiting on my Biscotti Babe, and just received a Vienna Roast. I hope I’ll like the Biscotti Babe as much as I like the Vienna Roast. Taz’s review on the BB was very helpful. I also have a BM Carlotta, and I totally agree with your description on this style.

    The long and short of it…(pun intended), is the ones below the Carlotta are similar enough most of us wouldn’t be able to tell which was which! Thanks for doing these I love it when you have stuff like this. It makes the whole experience more fun less likely you’ll send it back and less scary for those of us who are on a very limited budget and we save her money to buy one and we sure don’t want to get one home we hate.?‍♀️

      Great way to think about it Dede! Make the process of buying hair online fun! Connect with others and make online hair friends. Knowing you are not alone makes it less daunting. I love the CysterWigs resources too especially the Help Desk and videos. Knowing what you are getting and what to expect when you buy something, allows you to buy with confidence. You are investing in YOU!
