History of Raquel Welch 

Raquel Welch was one of Hollywood's most iconic actresses during the 1960s and 1970s. She played many strong female characters and even broke the mold of Hollywood’s “blonde bombshell”. Her beauty, talent, and charisma made her a sought-after star, earning her a permanent place in the hearts of millions around the globe. While she is widely known for her acting prowess, she is also known for her signature wigs. 

The Birth of the Raquel Welch Wig Brand 

Recognizing the transformative power of wigs, Raquel Welch collaborated with best stylists, designers, and suppliers to create a line of wigs that reflected her own sense of style and sophistication. Raquel Welch wigs were designed to not only enhance one's appearance but also give them a confidence boost. Thus, in 1998, the Raquel Welch wig brand was born. 
Raquel Welch revolutionized wigs with her use of the lace front. Originally, lace front wigs were very expensive and used mainly by celebrities and actors. However, Raquel Welch decided to include a lace front as a feature in her wigs. In fact, she was one of the first brands to include this feature in her ready-to-wear wigs. Since its inception, the brand was able to continuously advance in quality and, most importantly, believability.
