Video Wig Review – Samantha by Amore in Cappuccino

In going over my old videos to choose what I upload to the site, I’m surprised by how quickly many wig styles come and go. I have a handful of wigs I reviewed that I know were brand new styles when I bought them, and they’ve already disappeared (Estetica’s Ariel comes to mind). It would definitely suck to finally find a style you like only to have it disappear within two years. But how do you know when you find something you like whether or not it’s going to stick around? Well, you don’t. You just have to know what general styles, colors, and shapes look best on you and keep a lookout for those features. It’s a bummer, but it’s the truth.

Then you have a style like Amore’s Samantha – I have no idea how long this wig has been on the market, but it’s still going strong. Then again, Amore is a Rene of Paris line, and that company is much slower to change than others (although even they’ve had a few fly-by-nights that disappointed me to see them go so quickly, like Dani), and Samantha is a very simple, classic style that will probably only need tweaking every once in awhile to keep it popular. Samantha was one of the first longer wigs I ever tried (for the first year I only wore short, boy-cut ones), and was definitely the first wig I ever felt was a lot like my own hair. In fact, my bio hair is pretty much this exact cut and length right now – just a LOT lower in density!

Disclaimers: I bought this item with my own money and no one paid or asked me to do the review. Also, this video is old and I no longer wear wigs regularly or do reviews. I have a pretty good backlog of videos I’d like to eventually upload here, so if you’d like email updates of when new reviews are posted you can follow my blog – but please keep in mind that I write about a lot of other  things here, including posts about my bio hair and shoe shopping and photography. So if you’d rather not get email updates about things like that, you might not want to follow the blog and just check back on occasion instead.

  1. I was going to ask the same question. I just love Samantha & while I like this color on you, I prefer the softer brunette shades like Ginger Brown etc. on you. I just ordered Brandi in Cappucino from Gallery of Wigs. I was torn between that & Dark Chocolate. In the end, I thought from this video the Cappucino looked warmer & slightly more red but I’m hoping it was the right choice. I’ve loved every shade so far so hopefully it’ll be ok. I got Courntey in 4/33 And while it’s beautiful, next time I’ll get it in color 6 as I think it’s a tad too dark for me. Hope you’ve had a great weekend. 🙂

    • Honestly I think the 4/33 looks lighter than the 6 because the 6 has no highlighting and is a pretty flat color.I actually compare the two here and I think you can see the difference- the 4/33 is on the right and the 6 is on the left.

      • Oh wow! You’re right! And the 6 looks like a flat color. Not nearly as rich as the 4/33. Well I do like the 4/33. In certain lighting, I absolutely love it but in other lighting it seems a little dark but it’s never a flat look. Hoping I like the Cappucino. My bio hair is a 4 but I like it a little lighter or to have some nice variation. My husband prefers the darker colors but I’ve had a rainbow of various hair colors so eventually I’ll branch out with wigs too 😉
