Assuming that married women need to cover their hair today (I'm not going into that discussion), which communities accept that a sheitel is considered a covering?

I'm making this a community wiki, so please fill in as you can.
Are there communities that will wear synthetic but not human-hair?
You'll hear plenty of rabbis saying "a sheitel is no good if it looks too attracting", but that's subjective. I'm looking for yes or no, does a wig count as covering.
You'll also hear of rabbis who paskened they don't count, but often the community practice is otherwise.
I know R' Ovadiah Yosef shlit'a says sheitels don't count; which non-Ashkenazic communities follow his psak?
All Ashkenazim outside of Chassidim.There is also a Chassidic custom that a Hat and a wig are required.
