The Raquel Welch Upstage lace front synthetic wig is a 100 percent hand-knotted mid-length hairpiece that reaches the pinnacle of style and elegance. It creates a natural-looking hairline so nobody will know that you’re wearing a wig. It is part of the Sheer Indulgence collection. This wig will feature a lace-front, giving you a realistic hairline appearance and a monofilament top to allow you to change the parting in any direction. Made with authentic Tru2Life synthetic hair, it can be treated with styling tools such as curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers, but never go above a low/ medium setting. You can even wet-set this wig or use steam rollers to create a look that’s all your own.

With a pageboy cut and slight layers, the Raquel Welch Upstage lace front synthetic wig weighs only 3 ounces. It’s designed specifically for oval, round and square-shaped faces, as well as diamond, pear and heart-shaped bone structures. The Upstage lace front synthetic wig’s average-sized cap means it fits most head sizes, and it stays in place no matter what you’re doing. This wig is also available in a large cap size. It’s easy to look your best in this gorgeous hairpiece.

Great human hair for the $$$
February 9, 2014
I love this wig in Ginger brown. I preferred to straighten it by occasionally would curl or scrunch it. It pulled back into a pony tail easily as you can see in the picture. AND I actually wore it at my wedding. I can't say enough good things about it. Just follow the care directions and it will last.
Human hair, beautiful colored, versatile
You have to style it yourself. I'm used to synthetic throw on and go wigs.

Ok, I have been looking for the perfect wig for about 3 years now due to hair loss from illness. I have tried real and synthetic and numerous colors and brands. I have tried short, long, super straight and wavy. The factors I had to consider: age, I'm 57, face shape and height, I'm 5' 9" and have a very long neck. My face is somewhat thin and oblong. I wanted something that was flattering yet age appropriate but most importantly looked real. I decided against real hair because of the up keep. I found the perfect color in the 12/22SS. I highly recommend the shaded shades because it really makes it look natural. I love the heat defiant, and mono top. It blows in the wind and I don't have to freak when an oven door opens. If you don't know what shade to try I highly recommend this color for starters. It is very neutral with lots of variations which I think would work for most ages and skin tones. It is by far the most comfortable wig I've ever worn. No itching and stays in place. Some people have complained that it is to thin in front but I think it looks very natural, as does my very honest husband. When they went on sale I bought 3.
Natural color Not to shiny Flattering on most Natural movement Comfortable
Wish it was less expensive Ordered the embrace in same color but much less expensive for days I don't leave the house Can't say how it will hold up, has done great so far

Gorgeous wig.

Better, more natural and more comfortable than very expensive human hair hand made wigs I used to wear!
Pretty, natural looking, looks like it is growing out of your scalp, youthful and comfortable
I bought two of these and one is a little frizzed at the nape...I don't know how it happened. Nonetheless, a wonderful wig

Love it
July 24, 2013
I now have four of this style so I guess I must really love it. Straight out of the box it looks great. The colors 19/23 and 19/23 shaded are my favorite light blondes as they are not too bright or yellow like most blondes. I do have to sew in a couple of clips in the back to keep it from riding up and one of them I had to thin a lot. The lace front is really natural.
Great style and color.
Some tangling at the neck.

Upstage wig by Rachel Welch R829S
May 30, 2013
I like the large cap, since I do have a lot of hair to fit under the wig. I also like the way the hair parts. The feel of the hair is great. It is quite pricy compared to what I have paid for others. First one I had burned so badly the first time I used electric rollers. My retailer did replace it for me.
The hair is natural on the top half. Love the part. It makes it look very natural. Many colors to choose from. Like the large cap.
Wig does not last more than 3 months. I have been wearing wigs for 10 years, this one has the least wear time and it costs more than 4 times the price of others I have purchased. The neckline frizzed after just a few weeks of wear. I keep cutting the edges. I am not happy that you can not get to speak to the company directly.

January 21, 2013
I love this wig to cut, the range of colors and light weight. shame as all raquel welch wigs that I got to try the tips will be damaged quickly so that after a month of daily use I had to shorten it. The lace front of me often causes itching. I still like this wig for her natural look.

The upstage is about as real looking as I've found
December 30, 2012
The upstage Is about as real looking that I have come across.
Doesn't look like a wig when the wind blows, moves like natural hair and stays on. Love that you can gloat iron it.
The lace hair line is a little sparse and the ends fray rather quickly. The life of this wig with my wear is about 3-4 months with biweekly trims of the ends.

This is a beautiful wig - the colour is a rich red and it feels real. It;s quite elegant the way it frames my face and I wish this was my own hair. It makes me look and feel alive. I am in my 50s and is perfect. It is comfortable, has natural soft curls and is a dream.

Lovely and realistic
July 15, 2012
I purchased this wig from a local store in 4-6 (medium-dark brown) and 6-30 brown-red before I knew this website existed. I trimmed the lace in front slightly to provide an even more natural look. I straightened the wig a bit with a flat iron (very carefully!) so it would look less "done" for everyday wear at work. I love this wig and nobody knows it is a wig! Nobody, not even my nosy co-worker who claims she notices everything! I love the fact that I don't have to fuss with my hair each morning before work. I use Hair U Wear spray conditioner to keep it soft in the back where it tangles and I gently remove the tangles with a hair pick - works great. After wearing this wig for a few months, I purchased another one in a different color.
Lace front. Mono part. Hand-tied! Looks so natural. Easy to care for. Great quality.

Upstage Raquel Welch Wig
March 20, 2012
I love the cap with this wig. Since I don't have any hair I am not worried about people seeing the wefts. I think this wig looks about as natural as you can get with a wig. The only thing I think could be better is there could be more hair on the hair line to make it look even better.
I like the cape and how natural it looks
I don't like that it seems to fray and get tangled at the edges fast, and the hair line could be thicker.

I have worn upstage now for over two years. I absolutely adore it. I keep looking at new syles but so far none have come out yet that I like as well as the upstage.

Everyone always compliments my hair and the color. I have had to do everything while wearing this wig and believe me no one knew unless I told them, I have had surgical procedures while wearing my wig.
I love everything else about the wig.
The only thing is the ends start to fray or frizz really soon afterwards and believe me I use the best products on it and am very gently combing or brushing it.

I purchased this in RL14/22SS. It fits like a glove and looks very natural. I've had several compliments on my "hair". I flat ironed it using low heat and it looks great. Somewhat like a shag but not stringy. The thickness is just right!

Beautiful style but the lace cap really itches. The strawberry blonde color featured is pretty orange toned, so if you are looking for something with no orange/red tones, I would get another shade.

The best wig ever
July 11, 2011
This wig is everything the former reviewers said it would be. The hair is soft and natural and moves like my hair moves. Love the lace front and monofilament top. I only wish it came in more blonde color choices. Got caught in the rain today, after it dried it was still beautiful.
Wish it came in more blonde colors, especially some ash blonde colors....18/22 would be wonderful.

Like Sherri, I started noticing within a day the hair at the nape started frizzing and falling out. Now after 5 months, practically the entire nape is bald. I purchased the wig in late January, and am sincerely hoping it was a flaw or a bad batch of wigs. Oh, and the hairline is a super thin.. I mean, people have actual hairlines, not random hairs sprouting out of their foreheads! But, on the other hand, I absolutely love the wig. The color, cut, movement, everything... so I am a little torn. :|

Natural Looking
May 15, 2011
I have worn a wig for over fourty years (starting at age 12) and have found the lace front wig to be so natural and comfortable, that I was amazed.
the natural look, comfortable and secure fit, the natural flow and movement of the hair
I found that the front sweep of color was too fake and not blended as much as I have come to expect from Racquel Welch wigs.

I bought this wig and it's better than real hair! The part and hairline looks sooo natural, and it's comfortable. The price is a bit steep for synthetic but it's worth every penny. Not shiny and fake at all. People have no idea it's a wig....if your on the fence, BUY IT! You will love it! Gorgeous colors too!

I have purchased two of the Upstage wigs, I would not want to be without it. i love the style, and it is the perfect lenght and color for me. It is light weight, and easy to wear. I have received so many compliments on how young I look. It has so much movement... i can go on and on. I would love it if she were to make another hand tied mid lenght wig. This is a winner for me

Love the style
January 11, 2011
Although I love the style and color of this wig, I have bought two of them and both frizzed at the back bottom within 3 days. The first one I bought lost alot of hair on the nap of the wig, I wore this wig on a daily basis (at least when I was out of the house in public) for about 4 months. I bought a second one (thinking maybe the first one was a "lemon"!) I am currently wearing it, and it is starting lose hair also, I have only been wearing this one on a regular basis for about one month. The frissing is really bad I I keep having to snip the ends off! I use synthetic shampoo and a conditioner and only wash every couple of weeks. The lace also is fraying and gets very uncomfortable and itchy, I have been snipping the ends off of the lace also. Also, i find that the velcro in the back does not stay fastened very well. Anyway, love the style and color, but I feel for the price, the quality is poor.

this is the closest to your natural you will ever get. I had baby fine thin hair and every other wig on me looked fake, because of bulk on top and front, this one is so different!!! you will regret not buying this one. Raquel Welch wigs are only getting better and she is setting new standards for the others to follow. You will love this cap. The wind can blow and you can relax because no one will know you are wearing a wig!

perrfect for those with total hair loss
August 17, 2010
i really love this wig. its low effort to care for compared to human hair wigs. i love being able to use a little wig shine spray and blow dry for a polished look. this wig really reminds me of the last time i had hair...its so similar to my natural texture and style i wore. i never curled it but its got a flowing and natural fullness that ive never experienced before. it just falls right.
very natural, stays on, is much less hot to wear in summer, pretty colors, flattering, and just the right length not too long or short, easily personalizable with a pro stylist...makes me feel like i have hair again, soft, natural, hand tied cap is so much cooler in sweltering summer days and gentle to sensitive scalps.
lace front needs extra care especially when the forehead sweats, frays a bit at the ends but medium heat blow drying helps keep the fiber smooth along with spray wig conditioner and a quality wig shampoo. i have made the mistake over the years by using regular hair products on my synthetic wigs.

Beautiful.... but not quite there yet
July 31, 2010
This is an absolutely beautiful wig. I have alopecia and have been wearing wigs for years. I'm very self-conscious about the hair parting in the back in the wind and seeing the wefts; but this wig is hand tied so it looks very natural and I feel very confident wearing it. My only complaint (or rather suggestion) is that the lace front is much too thin. I know Ms. Welch is going for a natural hairline and gradual increase in density, but the fact is that the lace shows through. I have sent my wigs to a ventilator in order to have more hair put in the front. Other than that, I just love it. I wish there was a way to get the "con" information to Ms. Welch so that she can improve on the wigs. I know she wears her wigs on occasion, but it takes a person who has to wear them on a daily basis, 24/7, to know exactly what she wants to make the wig look most natural. This wig is "almost perfect"..... comfortable, fits well, is absolutely gorgeous.
Very comfortable Beautiful color blends Love that it's all hand-tied Very natural looking
