    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?

    Sarah-Catherine is like a breath of fresh air. It’s been a couple of weeks since we announced our contest winner and we had the amazing opportunity to interview her. We conducted our interview via Skype and learned so many wonderful, inspiring things from Sarah-Catherine (or SC for short), we just had to share! We covered everything from her passions in life, to the struggles of growing up with Alopecia. We urge you to read on… and dare you not to love her.
    Interview with Sarah-Catherine
    Wigs.com: Hi Sarah-Catherine! We’d love to get to know you a little bit better, so can you tell us a little bit more about yourself? How would you describe yourself?
    SC: Oh wow, sure! I’m adventuresome, I’m spiritual. I love life and I try to go after it. I’m happily married as of October [2011]. I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas and that’s where I live. It’s part of my identity as well, even though I’ve traveled a lot and gone to school elsewhere, I’m a Little Rock girl.
    Wigs.com: Oh that’s great! Now getting more into the role that wigs play in your life we have a few questions. As a woman when you’re getting dressed and dolled up, what does your routine consist of, involving your wig? Is it easier or does it present a challenge?
    SC: Oh, it’s much easier! I’ve worn wigs for a long time. I don’t remember, probably as a kid I had to do my hair but I’ve seen friends and my mom spend a long time on their hair and that’s a foreign concept to me. My hair has grown back at one point but if it were to grow back again, which is entirely possible, I think I would probably just shave my head and continue to wear wigs. I couldn’t imagine having to blow-dry my hair or curl it. I would never want to add that extra time to my day on a daily basis.
    Wigs.com: You said you’ve needed a wig since you were a kid, do you feel comfortable sharing with us what your hair loss is a result to and why you started wearing wigs?
    SC: In the fourth grade it fell out due to unknown causes, it is referred to as Alopecia. I lost all of my hair and it was really traumatic to me as a kid. The wigs at that time were really cumbersome, they were heavy and they were hot. They had too much hair in them as well. I wore the synthetic hair and at that time the hair would easily fray and become stiff. I can’t say enough bad things about the wigs when I was young (she laughs)! That combined with obviously not having a good wig that would stay on. There were a couple of really terrible moments in my life when they fell off in front of people. But you know they have evolved so nicely [since then] now they are light and I don’t worry about them coming off. I have a way that I secure them, so they will not come off. They look so much more natural and I don’t feel like I have this large presence on my head. They feel pretty normal now. I still have the same disease and the hair kind of comes and goes but doesn’t really grow in all the way. So I keep it shaved and wear a wig.
    Wigs.com: What motivated you to join our contest?
    SC: Well interestingly enough, I was very compelled to do it. You know… I hadn’t ever kept it a secret that I wear wigs, but I never broadcast it. When I wear a wig like this, people are always asking me where I get my haircut. If someone asks me once, I kind of skirt it, but if they insist then I tell them I wear a wig. When I saw this contest I had to make a decision, “Is this my moment where I’m basically broadcasting it?” And thought, yes it is time. Most of the people that start wearing wigs are wearing them because something much worse than hair falling out has happened. And hair falling out is just kind of adding another level of hardship, because our hair is interwoven with our egos. That’s just traditionally the way it is. To lose something like that, at a moment when you are already going through something so terrible like having a major illness, is kind of a double whammy. For me, I’m now used to wearing wigs and I enjoy wearing them. So I had the ability to say to somebody like that on a large scale that this is NOT going to be a hardship, this is actually going to be a fun experience, if you allow it to be and not worry about it; you’ll have a good time with it. To me it was a great opportunity to maybe be a little bit of a service in that way. It was a really gutsy thing to do because you don’t necessarily want everyone thinking of you when you are walking down the street, “Oh, she’s wearing a wig!” But I think that the benefits definitely are there and outweigh the potential negative.
    Wigs.com: When were you able to overcome your fears with wearing wigs? When did you reach that confident point?
    SC: That’s a great question. I think in college is when I had a little bit more acceptance of it. That’s when I found a great wig. Around my sophomore year my aunt had taken me to this designer wig studio and it just opened up all the possibilities. And I think having a really good wig is how I was able to finally come to some kind of peace with what had happened and knowing it [hair] wasn’t going to grow back. It was great, because you don’t want to put your life on hold for something to happen, that may never happen. So in [...]
