    Louis Vuitton took hair to new heights at Paris Fashion Week which took place this month in the fashion capital.

    The models wore oversized afro wigs to strut the catwalk this season. The afro wigs featured an assortment of natural colors – brunette, blonde, black and red – and were often embellished with a bow. The fresh, bright pastel garments for spring paired sweetly with the afro wigs for an overall whimsical silhouette.



    The combination of Louis Vuitton handbags, Marc Jacobs’ designs, and fun afro costume wigs allowed this high-fashion look to make a memorable statement!
    We love that wigs are becoming a staple on runways and in the fashion world. To try your hand at huge hair, visit Wgs.com here. Louis Vuitton model or not, afro wigs are super-fun and superfly!

    Famous sex symbol-turned-entrepreneur Raquel Welch appeared on Oprah yesterday. At age 69, she looks better than ever! Raquel and Oprah discussed beauty and life in the spotlight, as well as sex, men, and her new book. Raquel gives advice to all women about aging and how to do it brilliantly – as she has. We'll let you in on a little secret... Raquel was wearing a wig! She wore a top-selling wig called Spotlight from her 2010 Spring Signature Collection.

    In Raquel’s interview with Oprah, she talks about once being ‘every man’s fantasy’. After all, several million copies were sold of that famous picture of Raquel wearing the doe-skin bikini (from the 1960s movie One Million Years B.C). She lamented, however, that she felt highly objectified back then – as though she were to be “seen and not heard”. Raquel said that she had to throw away her serious, artistic side. Oprah also inquires about the time Raquel spent with many of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the day – Dean Martin, Burt Reynolds and Elvis, to name a few.

    We were even invited to reminisce over a brief clip from 1984 when Raquel first appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show! Oprah read many excerpts from Raquel’s new book appropriately titled Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage. One of the main topics in Raquel’s book is aging. She says that a woman must decide when she is older whether she is going to "get in the game or check out", whether to "play it or bow out". Raquel also advises, “Just as you maintain your home, your car, your garden…you should maintain your greatest asset – your body.”

    We were very pleased to see Raquel wearing Spotlight beautifully (in the color RL30/27, shown at left). Spotlight is one of Raquel and parent company Hair U Wear’s top-selling wigs. It’s a favorite among Wigs.com customers too. Raquel also wears a style called Always in the cover photo of her book. To view Spotlight by Raquel Welch, click here.

    Let’s check out Brooke – a fresh and trendy bob wig by Noriko.
    Brooke is a perfect look for spring and offers endless charm with an updated bob cut. Brooke’s fashion-forward style is designed with tons of fun layers and longer pieces at the front and neckline. With this bob wig, you get full and modern side bangs which can be swept to the side, pulled forward and over the eye for a sultry look, or pushed back behind the ear with your fingers. You can also take the wig to your stylist and have them trim the bangs for a more brow-skimming, blunt bang, or simply thin the bangs for a more feathered look (as shown in image at left).
    Brooke features a full monofilament cap construction which allows for natural movement and the appearance of a natural part – whichever direction you decide to part the bangs. The longer face-framing pieces beautifully emphasize the jaw line. Brooke’s flirty layers are razored from crown to nape; these layers are well-defined and can be finger-styled. Brooke is designed with longer pieces that hug the neck for a multi-level cut that is salon-inspired with great texture. The combination of smooth bangs and top, heavily textured back, bangs, and face-framing pieces on the sides makes for a gorgeous and captivating cut which will flatter virtually any face shape.
    Get more information on Brooke here. You can also watch one of our wig experts on WigsTV to learn more about this style by clicking here. On WigsTV, you'll see what Brooke looks like right out of the box. And remember, Wigs.com is also on Facebook and Twitter! Stay tuned for more great styles from Wigs.com.

    This has certainly been the era of Lady Gaga! She’s hotter than ever and always manages to change her look in interesting and creative ways. Whether attending an awards night or just in transport to an event, Gaga has been caught wearing the most unique items from wigs, hats and gowns to garments made of metals and plastics. Lady Gaga is certainly a style chameleon. In a recent issue of Allure magazine, we found an article called ‘Going Gaga’ in which she was asked, “[Do you have] any favorite hair products?” Lady Gaga answered, “I don’t use hair products. I wear wigs.” Gaga loves wigs, and Wigs.com wanted to reflect on a few of our favorites.
    The many wigs of Gaga...

    The wig that started all the buzz - the blonde bow!

    A long blonde wig with a slight wave, dip-dyed pink and purple.

    A curly blonde wig that makes a nod to the silver screen starlets of the 1920s and 30s.

    Gaga at a charity event wearing her outrageous blonde 'button wig'

    In her 'Bad Romance' music video, she wore a blonde hammerhead shark-inspired wig or hairpiece.

    In London wearing a blonde and purple-dyed wig. Styled in a tall messy updo, this high fashion look even has feathers coming out of the top!

    An avant garde blonde wig styled like a 1960s starlet in front and a starburst halo of sorts in back! Gaga mades a nod to the historical Madonna paintings of the Baroque.

    At an awards event wearing an avant garde fluffy blonde wig. So cloud-like and wispy!

    Did you know that you can donate your gently used and never-worn wigs to the American Cancer Society?

    Doing something great in your community can be as easy as sending off your old wigs. Wig donations make a big difference in the lives of women battling cancer and those in treatment. To be a part of this amazing philanthropic program, just visit the American Cancer Society here and enter your zip code in the box that says ‘Find ACS in Your Community’. From there, you will learn where to send those wigs you never wore, wore once, and wigs that look barely-used. You can do something big in the fight against cancer with ACS.

    Wigs in Action
    Recently in December 2009, the American Cancer Society bestowed their highest honor, the Corporate Impact Award to Raquel Welch and parent company Hair U Wear for their contribution of more than $1 million dollars worth of wigs. This huge donation of wigs is distributed to women fighting cancer to help them cope with the challenge of a lifetime. Raquel Welch wigs help women look good, improve their self-esteem, and handle their treatment and recovery with greater confidence.

    And now... the final wig of the 7 New Raquel Welch wigs from her 2010 Spring Collection. Today we’ll be showcasing Cinch, a short boy cut wig.

    Asymmetrical cuts are in! With Raquel Welch’s Cinch they’re better than ever, and the boy cut wig is just that – a cinch to style. With 4 inches of beautiful crown layers and exquisite all-over texture, Cinch is a razor-cut wig that is ready to wear right out of the box. The slightly-waved layers and tapered cut offer the perfect built-in volume. Cinch provides great coverage with the side layers, neck-hugging bottom layers, and point-cut nape layers. The wig also comes out of the box with side bangs which can also be cut and styled for a straight-across or feathered look.
    One of Cinch’s best features is the beautiful modern angles created by the asymmetrical cut; the wig is styled with a right side layer longer than those on the left. This longer layer kisses the cheekbone and jaw line for a contemporary and captivating look. However, if you want to temporarily hide the asymmetrical layer, simply tuck it behind your ear. You can also have your stylist trim the layer altogether if you want a softer look. When styling Cinch yourself, simple finger-styling may be all that is necessary. Use your fingers to add lift to the layers for a tousled effect, or try synthetic-friendly styling cream to make the layers sleek and sultry.
    Cinch is made with Raquel Welch’s Memory Cap II – a capless construction – which allows the wig to be completely secure while also maintaining comfort and keeping you cool. The resilient stretch-fit lace and open wefting memorize the shape of your head for a fully custom and lightweight fit. Cinch is flattering on almost all face shapes and is an easy-to-wear, easy-to-style short wig that will keep your hairstyle up to date.

    For more information or to buy Cinch now, click here. You can also watch video on Cinch via our YouTube channel here. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Of course, you can find these styles and all Raquel Welch wigs on Wigs.com.
    That wraps up the 7 beautiful styles from Raquel Welch's 2010 Spring Collection. Bellissimo!

Vivacious features the Raquel Welch Memory Cap II – a capless construction – that is both lightweight and sturdy.
