    Raquel Makes It Easy, You Make It Beautiful!

    The wait is over! Raquel Welch’s new coveted line is finally here… And guess what? You get the inside scoop first!

    What’s New?

    The new collection has everything from super comfortable capless constructions to a ravishing human hair wig. Throughout the line we see Raquel’s signature touch, glamour. For someone as famous and busy as Raquel, glamour is a MUST. But what about you and me, you ask? What’s in it for those of us that don’t wake up to paparazzi every day?

    Well, even though we don’t have to be “camera ready” or glamorous 24/7, this collection was made with us in mind, the working woman. This collection delivers beautiful on-trend styles that are comfortable and easy to wear. In reality whether you have to wear wigs due to hair loss or because you like to change up your style, we’re all looking for the same things: beauty & comfort. The stunning ready-to-wear styles make each and every one of these styles a winner in our book. The fact that these wigs are glamorous is a bonus. And let’s face it we could all use a bit of glam in our lives!

    We love Raquel because she walks the talk. Did you know she wears wigs every day? It’s true! In an interview with Charlie Rose and Gayle King, she wore one of her old time favorites, Limelight. And again at her guest appearance on CSI: Miami she wore Limelight & Spotlight. When we had the opportunity of meeting her in New York she was wearing one of her new wigs, Camera-Ready. It was gorgeous! So, if Raquel Welch wears wigs every day, why shouldn’t you?

    Ah... springtime.

    Spring brings to mind the birds & the bees, but if you have one in the oven you've probably been thinking about it a lot longer…

    The Hair

    With the season change, your wardrobe changes and so does the hair. Many of us are trying to come up with a stylish and quick way to change our hairstyle without the use of harsh chemicals - especially if you're pregnant.

    The America College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) say only a small amount of color dye is absorbed through the skin, so it's safe to use during pregnancy. You should still be cautious; the first three months of your pregnancy are the most delicate. Try to limit the use of any chemical until your second trimester.

    Don't want to risk it? No problem, the 'rooted' look is on trend, just ask Rihanna... Just kidding! Although ombre and rooted hair colors are on trend, they're usually much more subtle than Rihanna's obvious hair fail. So, what to do if you don't want chemicals anywhere near your hair? Read on! We're here to help!

    Wigs

    The most obvious of all the solutions would be, of course, a wig. They have come a long way and can look just as natural as your own hair. Also, they're not nearly as hot or heavy as they used to be in the past. Many of them are only two ounces in weight! When your roots are simply too much to ignore, a wig can cover a multitude of (hair) sins.

    Between rushing out the door and the morning sickness - do you really want to worry about doing your hair? No, you don't. That's exactly why wigs are so convenient!

    With so many different options available, you're sure to find the perfect one for you.

    We recommend:

    A significant number of men and women are afraid of wearing wigs because of the ‘wiggy’ factor. You know, the one in which you feel like you are wearing a flashing sign announcing to everyone: “I’m wearing a wig! I’m wearing a wig!”

    Obviously no one wants their hair to look like a wig. Unless you’re wearing a huge colorful wig à la Nicki Minaj, you’re probably trying to pass your wig for natural hair. The good news is wig technology has come a long way – just ask Sarah-Catherine, our contest winner. She’s been wearing wigs for many years and has seen the progress wigs have made over time (make sure to check out her interview). The fiber used for quality synthetic wigs is now so realistic, it is a great substitute for human hair. If this isn’t reason enough to convince you of how natural wigs can look, let’s chat about monofilament tops.

    Monofilament Wigs

    Examples of Monofilament Diagrams for Raquel Welch and Jon Renau Wigs

    Examples of Monofilament Diagrams

     

    What’s a monofilament top, you ask? It's simply a term used to describe the materials from which a wig’s cap construction is made. The material mono tops (short for monofilament wigs) are made from consists of a thin, mesh, nylon fabric. This thin material is ideal because it allows plenty of ventilation, which in turn makes the wig cap cool and comfortable. If you’re wearing wigs due to hair loss and you have a sensitive scalp, then this is definitely the best wig cap for you. The filament-like material is ideal for a tender scalp.

    Another advantage to this material is the sheer, skin-like appearance it gives off. The sheer color helps the cap blend in with the color of your skin. This not only disguises the wig’s cap, but also gives the illusion of natural hair growth at the scalp. A double monofilament top has an extra layer of fabric for extra comfort.

    Usually monofilament constructions are hand-tied, but can also be machine-sewn. Because the hair is tied directly onto the mono top, it can be parted in any given direction allowing the movement of the hair to begin at the scalp. Imagine being able to change the style around without the fear of revealing your wig!

    The main difference between hand-tied and machine-sewn is the way the hair or fiber is sewn onto the monofilament mesh material. When a mono top is hand-tied, each hair is individually sewn; a machine-sewn mono top, ties groups of hair together. The advantage of each individual fiber being hand-tied is the natural flowy movement; by contrast when groups of fibers are sewn together the movement is not as free. Think about it, each strand of our hair grows out from the scalp individually, so a hand-tied monofilament mimics the natural hair growth – it’s just as real. Although more expensive, the added bonus for hand-tying each hair is in the way each hair is tightly secured, totally reducing the amount of shedding – making your wig last longer. You get what you pay for, but either technique will give you a super realistic look!

    As you can see there’s truly a wig for every person. You just have to know what you want. Wig constructions will continue to evolve and improve. And we can’t wait to see what comes next!
