  1. Voltage
    I am very disappointed with this wig because it does not look like the advertisement at all and I was told I had to pay my hairdresser to style it.
    However I was not told this when I made my purchase .

  2. Wanted to like it
    I wanted a shorter hairstyle for the summer, hoping it would be cooler. Unfortunately this is so uncomfortable, itchy, not enough hair around the bottom to style out, in other words miserable. I am ordering another
    Noriko, Stacie Auburn Sugar, have Sky in same color and absolutely love it.

  3. Love the color (R829S+)
    I got my Voltage today. I ordered color R829S+ hoping it wouldn't be too light and reddish as shown on Raquel Welch. The base color actually turned out darker than what is shown and the highlights were more blondish instead of reddish but I do like the color since I have medium brown hair. Couple of improvements they can make on this wig is one, add more hair to the bottom sides of the wig and secondly, make the sides a little longer. The hair on the top and sides lay pretty straight so I will have to work with it to make it more fuller so that it doesn't look so pasty next to my head. I like the wispy look as shown on Raquel Welch so hope to get it styled that way. The fit is ok and think it will be comfortable to wear for several hours. I think it's a keeper.

  4. cute style but uncomfortable
    This is a cute hairstyle however after having worn human hair now for a couple of years, I remember how itchy and uncomfortable synthetic wigs are in comparison. It's cheap but after a short while does look "wiggish" as the hair does not flow like human hair. I find I am adjusting it, pulling it down, moving it after it has shifted. Too bad as it is a fun style. This would be a good wig to wear for fun once in a while but wears out fast if you didn't wear it every day.

  5. Love it.....
    Best wig I ever have bought. On 3rd bald spell due to mestatic breast cancer treatment, and hate wigs usually. Love this one. Fits well, looks good, easy to style. Everyone compliments me on it.

  6. Flattering and Easy to Wear
    This is my 4th Raquel Welch wig and the first one I could wear straight out of the box without a little thinning. It looks fantastic, it fits and feels even better than my other RW wigs and I get compliments every time I wear it. (A friend last night said I looked like a model.) I blend in my own hairline at the temples and bangs for a completely natural look. Only one comment: it was slightly shinier at first than my other wigs. I alleviated the problem with a tiny amount of powder. The shine is going away the more I wear it. I just wish it came in human hair.

  7. Looks So Cute On!
    This is my favorite purchase from Wigs.Com. Has such a perky look and takes away the tired look in my face!!!!!! Love love love it!!!!! Great new price too!

  8. Love, love, love!
    I just purchased my second Raquel Welch wig, synthetic, "Voltage", Glazed Hazelnut. Same style, same color. This is by far one of the most worthwhile purchases I have EVER made. I'm middle-aged, and my hair is even thinner now than ever, but this wig is absolutely wonderful. In the morning before work, I shower and put on my make up. Then I take my wig, give it a gentle tousle and I'm ready to go. And I feel fabulous! Cost? I hardly ever purchase hair spray, mousse', volumizer, etc.... any more.

  9. Satisfied First Time Buyer
    My first experience ever with any hairpiece or wig. Loved Voltage right out of the box. Ordered R11S. After several weeks though it is losing its curl and style. I have ordered some products to try and style it myself and see if I can put that "bounce" back into it. Am going to order a second wig so I can alternate wearing them. Overall color me a satisfied customer!
    By Jackie on 10/19/15
  10. Hope I get a good one!
    This has been my "go to" wig for Y EARS. I, too, have noticed that they are not as full as they have been in the past. I used to be able to count on the fact that I could, literally, take it out of the box and wear it with just a minimum of finger styling. I have sent more than one back for an exchange when they just wouldn't work.
    I called to see if they had changed manufacturers because I noticed the irregularity when the "Raquel Welch" tag in the wig changed from pink to black. They said that they had not.
    I'm hoping that I get a GOOD one this time!
    Please pass on these concerns to your quality control personnel. I hate to see a decline in the quality.
    By Ruthie on 9/4/15
    This wig is great. I've been a customer for a long long time and tried many wigs. This wig is the best, it styles easily and you can spike it and style it exactly how she is wearing it which I like.

    I hope she never discontinues this wig. Many of her wigs do not style as they show on her and that is a big disappointment.


    Thank you for another happy customer and great purchase.

  12. Voltage
    I love the Voltage wig and order it every few months. However I always have my fingers crossed, because sometimes I get one and it is styled beautifully, I take it out of the box, shake it and put it on and get so
    many compliments. However sometimes, it is not styled well, looks
    way to shiny and doesn't flip up like I like it. Not sure what to do about this, because it's a bit of a hassle sending back and then could get one with the same problem. This happens more often than not and I end up wearing an older wig, because the style looks natural...any suggestions here? thanks! I like R829+.
    By Joan on 7/12/15
  13. Sassy Looking
    This wig is very cute and sassy looking.
    It fits well and is comfortable.
    I ordered it in Glazed Fire and am happy with color.

    By Maureen on 6/12/15
  14. So Happy!
    Just received the Voltage in R23S color. took it out the box, put it on, trimmed the bangs a little and good to go! Hair is just right amount, fit is great (I have a big head) and the style/color is great! haven't been this satisfied with a wig in a long time. I have worn them off and on for nearly 45 years. Very natural looking. Amen!

  15. Looks like my own hair "used to look."
    I am in love with the "Voltage" style and intend to purchase another one in a different only problem is that it tends to ride up and does not feel secure on my head...I am concerned that if someone accidentally brushes up again my head or if I it is too windy outside the entire wig will come off...the tabs at either side of the head do not hold the wig securely and the adjustment straps at the nape of the neck tend to bunch up if you try to make it tighter...I wonder if others have had this problem and if using bobby pins would help secure it or would if that would damage the wig.


    Maria, thank you for your feedback! To secure a wig that may be too big, you can safely use clips or bobby pins. We recommend you measure your head to see if Average is the correct size. Wigs can be sewn or tailored to fit your head shape. Please contact us if you need further assistance. Thank you for choosing!

  16. My Beauty Secret
    People are constantly asking me what color I use on my hair and where do I get it cut? Since I color and cut my own hair I do not fess up to strangers as it's so much fun to go through life feeling good about yourself and not having to tell. It's my beauty secret! I have had more compliments in these past few years than I have in my entire life and I do have to thank Raquel Welch for that.

    By Marilyn on 12/3/14
    I LOVE my Voltage. I've gotten compliments on the color even from colorists. They wanted to know who did my color!! When I said Raquel Welch, you should have seen their faces!!! It was great!!! I have only one concern that needs addressing. This is my 5th one. The nape of neck seems thin. Because the headrest in most cars seem to connect and mess, rub, wear, etc. Is there any way you can increase the amount of hair on the 2nd & 3rd center nape? I have resorted to stitching these rows together as the hair wore away. There must be a better way.

    By MaryAnn Massucci on 12/2/14
  18. So Disappointing
    Have been buying Voltage for many years with great satisfaction. My newest purchase came in with the color darker and the styling so bad there is nothing I can do with it. The sides and back are long and straight as sticks rather than short and curled up. It looks nothing like the picture. I mean nothing like the picture. Rather than pay a re-stocking fee I am doing an exchange. If the next wig comes in looking as bad as the first I will sadly not continue to buy from any longer.

  19. Thinner Wigs
    After wearing Gala by Gabor for years I was disappointed when they kept getting thinner & shorter & I had to find a replacement Was so happy with my new Voltage only to find that with each reorder it got thinner. This last wig I am returning as it is so short and thin and choppy it can't even be styled my husband didn't believe it was the same wig! What is going on?! I'm reading a lot of reviews on different styles with the same complaint.
    By Susie on 9/9/14
  20. Love it
    I have been wearing this wig for at least five years. Since I have to wear it every day they only last a couple of months where they look really natural. But I must say I work in a smoking environment and it makes a difference. I get soo many compliments It looks so natural. I keep trying other styles and other brands but always come back to this one. I feel that replacing my wig every couple months is equivalent to color/haircut expenses. Thank god for wigs to make me look and feel good.
    By Sandra on 8/26/14
    I purchased the RW Voltage wig and couldn't be happier. I am going thru chemo and have lost all my hair. owning this fantastic wig has made it so simple to look my best at all times without the worry of looking like I have on a un-natural wig. The Voltage in the glazed strawberry is very natural looking and I get numerous comments to its great look every time I wear it. Love it so much I ordered a second one. If you are wanting a great natural looking wig I highly recommend the RW Voltage! Also very comfortable and easy to wear.....hardly know you have it on.
    By Vciki on 7/16/14
  22. Too small
    I'm still wearing a Raquel Welch wig I bought 5 years ago that I love however my gray hair has become silver since then so I thought I'd buy the same one in a lighter color. It's been discontinued so I bought the Voltage. I was surprised to see there was no size option but I figured I would return it if it didn't fit. I have a small head and was happy to see it was a medium. Well it's too small. I have to use 9 bobby pins to keep it in place which is a problem since my hair is so thin.
    It's beautiful and comfortable but I'd be happier if it were larger. Also the netting is lumpy. I have to use bobby pins in the net just behind each ear to push the lumps down. I trained as a hairdresser in my youth and worked with wigs so I know how to cut them...that wasn't a problem. But I did have to trim quite a bit of hair so it wouldn't poke out. I'm very disappointed that the quality isn't as good as it was years ago.
    By Cath on 4/28/14
  23. Nice wig but has changed
    I've worn the Voltage wig for well over a year just due to thinning as I've aged. It's been easy comfortable and people compliment me all the time. However I am disappointed to find that the company is skimping on hair (or something..) which makes it quite a bit thinner. The picture shown on your website is not possible with this style any longer. What's going on?
    By Georgia on 3/30/14
  24. Beautiful
    Beautiful right out of the box...Looks like my own hair. Started wearing wigs everyday due to hair loss on left temple and back of head. Just switched to Voltage and people do not even know it is not my own hair!! I am unable to get the same look in the pic on website even using the hair product that they advised to use. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
    By Linda on 3/13/14
  25. Love the Style
    I have worn this wig for a very long time. I have over 12 of them in the same style and color. I don't know what I'll do if you discontinue this style. Everywhere I go people tell me how they love my hair and the color and always ask who my hair stylist is. I can never get my own hair to look as good as my wig so i'll continue wearing them and buying new ones. They're cheaper than going to have my hair cut and colored all the time. Please don't quit making Voltage in color R829S
    By Ristine Jones on 1/10/14
  26. Didn't look like my previous Voltage
    I really liked the first two Voltage I ordered but the third I ordered didn't look like the same style at all I thought I could get used to it but I still don't like it so I wish I had returned it. I may try one more and see if it is like the first two I ordered. I have read this same complaint on some other style wigs too.
    By Barbara on 12/28/13
  27. luv it !
    I have alopecia for over 40 years now and have always chosen Rachel Welch wigs. Voltage is my choice luv it!. And I get many compliments. Will continue to choose her wigs they are perfect Light excellent color and length. I love the 2.25 nape I take to a hair dresser to trim off the top as it is too ling on top for me. Even the hairdressers cannot believe how nice they look... ! Please do not discontinue this one.
    By C on 11/5/13
  28. Great wig
    I have been wearing it 5 years. Wish it were a little longer in back with a flip so I don't have to shave my neck. Other than that it' s great! Just lengthen the wig a little but not to much.
    By Bev on 10/25/13
  29. Voltage Rave!!
    I first ordered this wig following hand surgery when I knew that I could not do my hair. I now have rather severe arthritis in my hands which makes hairstyling very difficult.
    I can't tell you how many times I have heard What a great hairstyle! Who does your hair??? Raquel Welch!!!!
    I have found a hair color combination which allows me to blend my own hair into the sides of the wig which makes the look all the more natural.
    I can now walk and exercise knowing that I can be good to go in 45 minutes from shower to door. A lifestyle changer!!! Thanks Raquel!
    By Ruthie Holland on 9/4/13
  30. Wonderful Wig!
    I've been wearing this model for three years now and still get rave reviews. In fact people who originally knew I had purchased a wig have since forgotten. Yes it looks that authentic.
    When your hair looks great you feel great! I will never be without a Raquel Welch wig!
    By Satisfied in Stillwater on 9/1/13
  31. Its perfect
    I have worn voltgage for about 2 years now. I have had so many compliments. It is perfect I just wish it came is a small size.
    By Elaine on 8/26/13
  32. Voltage
    I have worn Voltage for 3 years. I have alopecia. After one year wearing it I ordered a 2nd back-up wig. Am wearing R23S+ platinum to go with my white hair where a bit of my own hair sneaks out & blends in by the ears. Now I'm going to order the 3rd. I love this style.. when I first wore it women I didn't know in my yoga class asked where I got my hair cut and I had to confess it was a wig. They were going right to the wig shop and buy one like it the next day. After my first Voltage I discovered and very happy dealing with you. I would love it if R Welch would make the Voltage in the monofilament cap. I have Center Stage and it's soo wonderful to wear. Please make the Voltage with that style cap. Please!!

    I love the Voltage. So many people tell me they love my hair and I tell them you can buy it. they can't believe it is a wig. I have even asked hair stylist ask about the color (R3329S+) it is a beautiful color and the highlights look so natural.
    By Linda on 6/19/13

    By Mel B on 6/19/13
  52. Too Thick
    I enjoyed the Voltage style until it seem to become heavy like it was too much hair for me. I am trying the Eva Gabor wigs for less hair. They seem thinner.
    By Connie on 6/19/13
  53. It's a 10
    On a scale of 1 to 5 I give this item a 10. It is wonderful. this is my first wig order. It is difficult to see the colors online but with help I was able to select a wonderful color it is amazing! The hair looks so real it is ridiculous! My head is so large it is embarrassing but this wig gives me confidence I needed.

  57. Great wig
    Great Wig. I have been wearing this for years. There are so many great new styles I see on this site I have been thinking about looking for an upgrade. But this is a good dependable style
    By Georgiana on 6/21/12
  58. getting many compliments!
    I have been buying wigs from your company for many years now and have been satisfied. I had only one bad experience and that made me change back to a style of wig I had worn years before.
    I had been wearing Aries for a long time and then one day I ordered 2 of them. When I received the wigs I didn't try them on right away since I had always been happy with them. However when I did get to put them on I found that neither wig combed out right the hairs would not go into the style they were suppose to be in. I wasn't happy and haven't been able to wear them out of the house. After that experience I started ordering Voltage again and have been enjoying these wigs once again.
    I hope my review is helpful. It is always a treat to get a new wig and find that it combs out the way it looks in the picture. I have had many compliments on my wigs in the past and hope to continue to look good in them.
    I would rate Voltage a 5 and Aries -2. I live in Studio City CA.
    Thanks Judith

  60. nice but not for me!
    I did not know how to style this wig. The style was just not for me but overall it is a great wig if you prefer the flipped out look.
