I loved this the minute i put it on but after just two weeks of daily wear, the ends started frizzing really bad. It clumps in the back and tangles very easily as well. I've put this up in favor of a shorter style for now, but I'll resurrect Scene Stealer for special events when I want the look of long hair. I would have loved to wear this daily but I don't think it can stand continued use like that.
I own 2 of Raquel's wig both of them called "embrace. only down side of these wigs the ends in the back frizz up...
Solution! I have been using the products they sell for synthetic wigs, but i am using pure argon oil. just a little on the ends after I've put the leave in conditioner on it.. Calms the frizzy's down...nice n soft!!
Just got this one in the mail today. I have owned a few Raquel Welch pieces and have to say (so far) its my favorite!! I love the length and fit. Its light weight and the color is very natural! Cant wait to see how it holds up!
I am new to wigs, and ordered three to start. I love this wig. hands down, everyone asks 'if I've started treatment yet' the monofilament front is awesome. I love that I can run my fingers through it and it just moves naturally. I love the the front is long also, allows me to pull it back and put a little butterfly clip in it for more of a professional tied back. its more on the honey blonde side than i was expecting i would have prefered an ash blonde but atill very happy with this purchase and it will likely be my go to wig.
I have alopecia universalis, so I'm completely bald. I had this wig a few years ago, wore it almost regularly (sorry, no images available). The good parts: the fit was decent, the length and amount of hair was nice at first. Nice color blend as well. The parts that turned me away from ever buying from any Welch collection were that it shed like crazy, all the time, it thinned out quickly and the hair became very frizzy and would kink up. The main and final reason I will not be getting any of the Welch wigs is the comfort, the lace was the most uncomfortable and itchy harshest lace I've ever worn. It scratched my upper forehead and irritated my skin. Also at the nape of the neck it was irritated and a lot of damage to my scalp. For anyone who is bald or has sensitive skin, I would not recommend this or any other Welch wigs. I found some that are more comfortable, heat friendly and last longer wear and tear at a more appealing for price with A-Plus/ Ozone wigs (they do not carry on this site) but also have gone back to the more comfortable and realistic Jon Renau wigs, which are longer lasting with less shedding and very scalp friendly.
I've been wear this everyday in r19/23ss. I really love this light blonde with dark roots, it looks very natural and many people don't know I wear a wig. (I have alopecia and I don't have any hair). With daily wear and weekly washings this wig typically lasts me 3 months give or take. I agree with other reviews that the ends tend to frizz, but I find that a straightener and a comb help smooth them back out after a couple wears. I also trim up the ends if they start to look too raggedy. I used to wear the cinnabar color, but I prefer the blonde shadow shades right now. I wish that they made some of the reds in the shadow shades. A few tips for people: adjustable straps tend to lose their "stretch" and near the end of the wigs life I typically have to do a little sewing to make sure the cap still holds tight. Any one who has little or no natural hair I suggest wearing wig cap. I find it protects the wig from scalp oils and allows you to go a bit longer between washings. The photo I have attached is styled with a large curling iron and I added streaks of pink hair chalk for fun. I tend to do this when my wigs are nearing the end of their life for a fun change for a week or 2 until I buy a new one.
I wanted to love it...
I really wanted to love this wig; long, lace front, mono top., and I wanted to try the tru2life fiber. But this wig was CRAZY small on my head - no way I could wear it, and I fit in other Raquel wigs. Also, the wig has a nice lace front, and overall density is alright; but there is not enough hair in front to look other than 'old and thinning' in my opinion. Lovely color and the fiber moved beautifully and looked very real, but not a winner in this wig for me.
No Shiny Synthetic Hair Look
I wrote another review praising Scene Stealer but forgot to add that the hair has a natural look, not a shiny doll hair look you see on a lot of synthetic wigs. Also the hair remains soft, not stiff and scratchy. It seems a little darker does better on this.
Great Length,Cut and Color
I get so much good info from reviews, I wanted to give back some of my experience.
I used to buy human hair wigs, but expensive, sometimes un-styled, and monochromatic color. Good thing is that Human Hair does not smell in the heat.
I really like Scene Stealer due to length and cut. Also has more variation in color of each hair on a wig & looks more natural. There is a slight odor to the synthetic hair in extreme heat but not bad. Worst was Iman wigs which out-right stink in warm weather.
I do not like the rooted SS colors with lighter hair colors because the roots are too dark (Iman shading was better) and can see the dark knots at the scalp. Although it creates a natural effect when messed up, a straight part shows base knots and hairline looks like a line across my forehead. Looks like you forgot to dye your hair instead of natural dark root shading. Who could forget to dye their hair for so long? Just looks too sloppy and unkempt to me.
I like Pale Gold Wheat RL14/22 and Golden Pecan RL13/88, having natural dark blond to light brown hair coloring. I noticed these lighten a bit after washing. Make sure to use cold water or ends will frizz. I use regular shampoo and conditioner, which covers any smell.
With its lace front, these colors look really natural. Cannot detect wig lace front and looks like hair growing out of head. No problem wearing hair back off face. Has great light highlights in front.
RL 14/22 is lighter and RL 13/88, a bit darker. I found the RL 13/88, darker hair to be a bit heavier, have more hair on wig. and hold up better. I think the really light hair is more fragile and tends to get more strawy.
I also like the Limelight for long curlier hair, but found RL 14/22 synthetic hair actually breaks off and frizzes on that style. This may be due to the processing to get the light hair color and the curl. I also washed it in warm, not hot, water a couple of times, a no-no.
Have to brush wigs regularly cause tend to clump/separate and become lifeless; but I live in a warm, dry climate and was having drying and tangling problems with human hair wigs.
I wear my wig over existing thin, fine hair with no cap. If having a problem with wig slipping, can buy wig clips, also called toupee clips, sew one or more on the wig at a seam or seams, insert comb in your hair and clip shut to your own hair. Wig will stay on even upside down or if pulled.
Love my Scene Stealer. Raquel put her name to a good product.
This is a very pretty wig! I bought the color RL14/25, Honey Ginger, about a year ago at a big discount. I tried it on and it was completely flat and wouldn't curl, no matter what I did! The other day, I decided to try and make it work for me. I cut several inches off, trimmed in bands and set the top with hot rollers. I left the rollers in over night. Wow, what a difference it made! I lightly teased the top and used Beautimark hairspray to keep the top and sides in place. I'm only giving it 4 stars, as it's very heavy and the hair fiber is a bit coarse. It does look very natural with the mono top and lace front! If you love stick straight hair, this is a beautiful wig. The Honey Ginger color is very pretty!
I feel good when I wear this wig because its the long hair I had before it started falling out. My husband says I look sexy... I guess this wig brought my sexy back!
Thick Blob of Hair
The wig seems to all come to the front big blobs of bangs that can't be pinned back. I've noticed with the Rachel Welch wigs they sit big on me and make my head ache shifting forward and back so I have to use bobby pins. They also have little edges above the ears that push down on my ears and make them stick out.
beautiful wig very natural looking have rooted color
I was nervous wearing this because it was my first wig purchase. I have worn extensions and ponytail pieces since I have genetically thinning hair. I was not prepared for the compliments and attention. Many complimented how perfect my hair looked. No one knew it was a wig. I ordered the cinnabar. The wig has more strawberry-ish highlights in the front than shown in the picture but still beautiful. You will need to tame the wig to get it into place. I am still trying to find the tricks. As with any hair piece it will tangle and needs maintenance. I sneak away and give it a comb through a couple times a day to keep it in line. I would highly recommend!!
No one knows it's a wig
I've been wearing this wig for two years in the SS colors no one know it's a wig! I love this & will keep wearing this as long as they make it. If you're having trouble styling this; try using hot rollers. You pretty much have to keep the curl clipped into place until it cools completely for synthetics to curl properly. Also I wait until the ends are already fraying before I restyle the wig to make it last longer & give me an alternate for washing/going out. To get the wig to behave itself before 1st wearing try steaming it into place with a fabric steamer. These are some of the tips/tricks I've learned.
The scene stealer
I have had this wig for about a month now. I have trichotillomania and I just shave my head because I can't deal with it. This is the first wig I have bought and it is pretty great! The only cons are what I prefer. The bangs are pretty long and hard to manage (although I haven't tried straightening or anything yet). Also the ends get really frizzy and the lace is kind of itchy. I may have made it sound bad but they are all just very minor and unnoticeable problems (to others). I definitely recommend this wig!
I have been wearing Scene Stealer for months now and no one has noticed it's a wig. I would recommend this product to everyone!! It has really helped me.
Better than Human Hair
prefer the scene stealer to human hair because I dont have to style it so much. it is super cute and i feel great when i am wearing it.
The style itself is nice the crown area looks very real. I had problems with the ends and I was unable to curl it. It is a beautiful wig and the style is perfect for me but the synthetic wigs are harder to curl and style. i guess they are not made to be changed too much which is okay because it comes looking great. i just like to be able to add my own style to it.
Love the SS colors
This style looks even more natural with the rooted colors. I wish i could get my real hair to look this good! I cut the lace back a little more and its perfect now.
Heat Friendly is a bonus for me.
I really like this wig mainly because it's beautiful. the heat friendly synthetic is a bonus but i really dont curl it or style it differently. i just like it because the style seems to hold up so much longer with the heat friendly hair. The style is like my own well it is long and straight like mine is normally but much much prettier and healthier looking. I do find it only lasts a few months before I have to replace it because the hair gets a little frayed looking after a while. i think it is because it is long and the hair is constantly rubbing up against my clothes and other things. i also find that the more i style or put heat to it the sooner it starts to fray. i called the company and they told me that the heat friendly hair has a tendency to wear out a little quicker but the benefits are worth it for me.
