Hi Sheila,

If you like Upstage but with a bit more body or curl we may recommend Crowd Pleaser, Editor’s Pick Elite, or Simmer Elite. Please keep in mind that Upstage is a heat-friendly style so this can be styled with the use of heat styling tools under 350° to add curl or customize your style.

The Wig Experts

What is a similar wig to Upstage maybe not as Curley but with bangs and sort/ medium length?
