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.

Looks Very Real
June 25, 2014
I lost my hair due to chemo and was VERY picky about the wigs I wore as I was extremely self conscious about wearing one. I had several before this one that were tolerable but I didn't love them. This wig, however, I loved! It is truly worth it to spend the extra money for a lace front wig as it allows a part to show through which is very realistic. I received many compliments on my hair while wearing the wig. Even the chemo nurses didn't know it was a wig - they thought I didn't lose my hair. Only now that I my hair is growing back and I am no longer wearing the wig did people know that I had been wearing a wig. Also I did not wear this wig right out of the box - I took it to my hairdresser who took a couple of inches off the bottom and razered the edges. Powder in some eyebrows and you are good to go! :)
Soft Light and swingy Comfortable Great color
A bit long right out of the box - take it to your hairdresser to shape how you like it.

My favourite wig!
April 2, 2015
I've owned many wigs, and this one is by far the best fit, style, color and a surprise to everyone when they find out its a wig. I use a brush with wide bristles, known for de-tangling wet hair. I think it's helped with the frizzies that I've had, and others have mentioned. I trim the small frizzed ends when it gets too bad and it has lengthened the wearing time. I own several in RL 30-27, Rusty Auburn. I wash them often, as doing so brings back the softness. I wear it every day, as it's made life so easy breezy.

Best Wig Ever
March 13, 2015
I chose this particular wig from the clearance items. It was only available in one size (average). However I chatted on line and telephoned Vogue and the representatives were polite and very helpful which convinced me that it was the perfect style and size for me, considering my own hair is very long. I was able to choose the color (Bronzed Sable RL6-28) and was surprised and pleased that it resembled the samples listed. When it arrived, I put it on immediately and wore it all day. It is so light weight that I barely knew I had it on. I loved how it moved in windy conditions outdoors. I will most certainly choose Vogue and Raquel Welch styles for my future wig purchases.
I was self conscious with my own hair because of thinning on top. I'm in my mid 60's and the style I chose brought back the confidence I needed. I loved that the wig came pre-styled and was certainly delighted with the color.

This wig is so amazing. I have Alopecia and my hair loss has effected me emotional and wearing this wig has given me so much confidence. People that don't know my health problems have no idea that it is a wig and ask me where I got my hair done. I will be buying more Raquel Welch wigs.

100% hand tied
October 30, 2014
Beautiful wig, however the wig had a bit too much hair to look natural on me. I just pulled the wig back and clipped it low and it looked really great. This style really helped me relax the hair I have now. I'm looking forward to playing with it and wearing it in multiple styles.. so excited.

Rough/Scratchy Hair
June 29, 2014
Right out of the box this was rough and scratchy on the ends. I'll never get another RW wig. Too expensive, hair is not fine enough to last.

Great style, not-so-great fraying, but found a solution!
June 23, 2014
I always loved my Rene of Paris wig, but it was long and getting old, so I was looking for a short style for summer, and I could find a short Rene of Paris wig with a style as cool as this. I love this style. It looks great, feels light, and has a very natural look to it. Very versatile depending on how you brush it, and can be pulled back in different ways and still look natural. Unfortunately, like many others, I experienced that the hair in the back frayed at the ends almost immediately! I was even being careful not to lay my head back on chairs, in an attempt to preserve it longer, but those ends were frizzy and so-easily-tangled within the first week! Tonight, I got out the straightening iron and turned it on the lowest setting (300 degrees) and lightly went over the ends, and it really smoothed them out nicely! I'm going to try to do this more regularly now. As long as it works, I'll go ahead and say I'm all for this wig and highly recommend it!

this wig looks so much like what my hair looked like , I am so pleased with it, I have not worn it yet, I hope it wears well. I got the Golden Russet. I hope that they keep making this, as I want more. It is not shiny or brassy , it is really nice. I love these caps I will only get the 100 percent hand knotted. I feel comfortable when the wind blows because no wafes show. looks like the hair is coming from your scalp.
wonderful cap. not brassy
None yet. hope it wears well.

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.

December 12, 2013
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

Love this wig

This is my first 100% hand tied wig. There is a lot of hair, but it is very light on my head. I purchased the color RL29/25 (golden russet); the same color in the picture. I was amazed at how close it is to my hair color. I love this wig.
Light and cool, lots of hair

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.

makes me feel pretty
June 4, 2013
Fabulous, light and comfortable, so real, I honestly forget I have it on! I have this one in colors 8/29 and 4/6 which are very similar. The wig is thin at the ends, but I like that there isn't much bulk on your neck. I don't over comb this one so it will last as I have read this is a problem with the tru2life fiber. And I comb it carefully starting at the ends. I just bought Celebrity which is also a hand-tied cap, but with the regular fiber and am excited to see how it holds up.
light, realistic. My MOM says," Now that's some beautiful hair!"
Need a color between the 2/4 (very dark) and 4/6 (actually more of an 8 in color) Regular fiber or remy hair would be great.

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!

Nice but...
August 18, 2011
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.
