I am doing my happy dance. My RISK wig just arrived and it looks great! I have a small head, face and forehead (so bangs are not an option). Thank you Ellen Wille! My previous tries at wigs locally were a disaster - too big, too much hair and I looked ridiculous. My hair is thinning at a fast rate due to medication so I had to do something. The RISK style is exactly how I once wore my real hair, so it all works. The cap is just a tiny bit too large, even though it is petite/average size - but I can still work with it just fine. I was able to take it out of the box and immediately style it with my fingers - away from my small forehead - just like the pictures showed. So once again, thank you Ellen Wille, for thinking of customers that fit my category of needs. I am going to order more!
Realistic but too big
Texture and color is very natural but two issues:
1. Size is too big. My head is average - I've worn RoP, Jon Renau and Raquel Welch which fit fine. But Risk is quite loose around the nape.
2. Hair is shorter than in the photos so there isn't as much volume or "tousle-ability". Maybe mine is just an anomaly given the other comments but if your head is really petite average you might find Risk too big. I'll be adding clips to mine.
My First Wig
When the 'dreaded' day came that I needed a wig I bought Risk, a wig with the my same haircut. It was not such a dreadful day after all!. My husband came home from work and said, "did you go to a new hairdresser? Your hair looks really good!" The next day I wore it to church (a big church) people complimented my "new haircut". One person even said, "I wish I could have a short cut like yours, I don't have the right face for it..." AND, it was a hot day and I found the wig very comfortable, really didn't notice it was on after a while. I am ordering my second Risk to have one available when washing or whatever.
Beautiful but cap is too small
This is my first wig purchase and I was very excited to receive the Risk (in tobacco rooted) style. I received it today and was so disappointed when I tried on the wig over the plastic. The cap gave me a headache as soon as I put it on...and according to the measurements I was in the correct size. Needless to say I am returning the wig tomorrow and will be going to try on wigs locally. The quality of the hair and color was very nice. I just wish it had fit.
Took this out of the box, added a little shaping cream and spritzed with water, styled lightly....good to go! This wig is totally realistic, well made. It will NOT need thinned or shaped, as many wigs do. I'm 60 and have very thin hair, and wear a pixie type cut. This wig looks so real I can't stop looking in the mirror!!
I absolutely love this wig. I've tried several different styles and this is the first I have been able to wear right out of the box. I usually have to take a new wig to the hair dresser to have a ton of "hair" cut out or have it trimmed to suit my face. Despite the short style, it's more styleable than many of the other longer styles that I've tried.
I got the Aubergine and love the color. It's got enough of a pop of purpleish highlights to give it a little funky "edge", but not so much that it looks super fake. I'm 49 and it doesn't make me look like I'm trying to re-live my teens.
This is my first time ordering a wig via the internet and I must say that I am quite impressed with this wig. It fits nicely and is comfortable. I cut the mesh at the forehead as far as I could and nobody can tell that it is a wig when I pull my hair back. It`s amazing!!! The only drawback for me is that the hair on the sides is not as long as it appears on the picture but I don`t mind the look. I will definitely order other wigs!
The most realistic
I was looking for something that didn't "look like a wig". I have thin hair and a small head and most styles were just too volumous and big for me. This was perfect. Not too much hair which I love. Even my own kids and my mother thought it was my real hair. I will definitely be getting another!
LOVE this wig
I always wore short hair, now my hair is getting very thin and I rather wear a wig than worry about showing a bold spot. This wig is perfect. Natural in every way, and it makes me feel great. Nobody would guess its a wig, it's just perfect. I can wear it with tiny bangs or ruffled back (like in the photo), and it looks gorgeous. I ordered the same one, so as to have a spare one.
Bought size: Petite
Color : Tobacco Rooted
The Perfect Pixie
I have been wearing this wig for a while now. When I first took the wig out of the box I was surprised to see that the risk is much smaller than my disc wig- but for me this is better as I have a smaller sized head and the disc while comfortable did have some give. The cut is very cute and looks like the wig style I have always been looking for. The hair can be pushed forward or be made spiky and as messy as you care it to be- I love the versatility. I ordered mine in Champagne mix and it is a lovely natural looking shade. The only criticism I have of the wig is that on the sides where the lace ends there is not enough hair to cover the cap. Another reviewer had mentioned this as well. However the thinness of this hair for this style in my opinion is what makes this style so fantastic.
As realistic as it gets!!
I now own two of this style in Dark Sand (which has more highlights than shown in the sample picture) and am thrilled. I can't tell you how many people have complimented my "new" style and have even asked who does my hair! I have been losing my hair for several years and have tried several other wigs that were "ok"; but never really felt right for me. As soon as I saw Risk by Ellen Wille I knew it was what I was looking for and I was right! It truly is short and holds it's shape without any additional product. I wear it straight out of the box with just a slight shake and am ready to go in minutes. I highly recommend this for those who have a smaller head and don't want a huge volume of hair.
I absolutely love this wig! I'm 75 years old in good shape but the thinning hair was becoming and issue. I have a small head and didn't want to be overwhelmed by hair and this wig is absolutely wonderful. It looks natural the color is warm and flattering. And I'm very tempted to order a second one (just in case...).
New to wigs & this is my favorite so far! It's the most like my real hair which is mostly gone so it fits well.
It's very comfortable and light...the most realistic wig right out of the box. There are just a few issues for me with the fit that make it not quite right...such as the cap needs to be just about a 1/4" longer in the ear tabs...the hair there is very thin which makes it look realistic but it's not covering my own sideburns which are short and blunt...I cannot hide them! The temple area is also off just a bit - it would be better if that area were lace as well because the thinness of the hair isn't hiding the cap enough. On the other hand the style and thinness makes the wig more realistic and comfortable. You just have to try it to see if it works for your head and hairline.
I have purchased 3 Ellen Willie wigs and this one is the best hands down! The lace is totally invisible and no one can tell this is a wig. I have gotten so many compliments I can't wait until my real hair is long enough to copy the cut. I purchased the sandy rooted and it is perfect. Nice and cool and I forget that I have it on half the time!
I am new to the world of wigs as my alopecia universalis came fast and with a vengeance. After wearing a pricey monofilament wig all hand tied (and personally styled) for 6 months that always felt and looked like too much hair I was on the look out for a truly short wig that would also be more comfortable. I was absolutely delighted with my choice of wig and style---RISK---by Ellen Wille as well as color----dark sand. It is much more comfortable than a full cap construction and it looks and acts more like real hair my real hair.
I will definitely be getting another one!
Fun comfortable chic
This is a great value for the price for people with small heads. I have alopecia universalis and a small head and this wig fits great and looks fantastic. It's stylish and very natural-looking. The tobacco rooted color looks natural and expensive!. All this for less than the price of a cut and color unless you are covering a thick head of long hair or have a very large head you can't go wrong with this fin style!
I'm not used to a wig that needs nothing but putting on your head but this one is it. No trimming no thinning no anything. Truly shake and wear. My daughter knows I wear wigs . She looked at me and told me how fantastic I looked...then asked "Who styled your hair" I wish it had a full mono top but it wasn't a terrible drawback. It's comfortable and the texture is so close to human hair nobody can tell the difference. I ordered sandy blond and it's such a natural looking color I'm flabbergasted. I love an ash blond and this is pretty much it. The lace front gives extraordinary versatility in styling the bangs. I'll order another one in a darker color for winter....Stuck on this one.
I love this wig. My hair is thinning and I am trying to find a couple good wigs that sort of match my color so I don't have to use heat all the time on my hair. This one in Pepper Mix is perfect. It looks just like my own style and I like that the bags are shorter. You can brush them off your face if you want and it still looks like my real hair. It is size petite average and if fits me perfectly! I would love it if Ellen Wille would make some short CURLY wigs.
Needs more lace in front and monofilament top
I love the wig I have been looking for the short with at least a lace front but the wig needs more front lace and monofilament. I was somewhat disappointed at the amount of lace.
One of the girls on the phone told me this is one of the most popular short wigs in Europe and I see why. I got this for my spring/summer wig because its short and comfortable and on top of that it has a lace front so it looks real. I may even get another in a different color.
needs more lace at front or monofilament top
Love the wig but need more lace at front or monofilament top included due to shortness. Other than that loved the hairpiece.
I am amazed by the quality. Wearing it brings me more confidence It is both natural looking and has a soft touch. Very satisfied.
Too Short at front
I have the Ellen Willie Risk. The quality etc is fine. However the front part right in the middle is rather fuzzy and to tightly woven not long enough to spike it or comb it back. The rest of the wig is great it is just that part but that it the most important part of the hair. I can`t wear this out.
