Reviews by Isabel – High Octane by Raquel Welch
The Raquel Welch High Octane wig was introduced in late 2020 as part of the 2020 Fall Collection. High Octane launched with such fanfare and immediate popularity that by early December 2020 the style was back ordered by Raquel Welch in almost every color. In reviewing the product it is easy see what all of the fuss is about. This will prove to be a blockbuster style in 2021. Enjoy!
High Octane is a sensational mid to longer length, long layered, beachy curl and wavy delight. It falls in deconstructed waves and showers to the mid back, with generous 10 inch bangs, 13 inch sides and crown and an 11 inch nape. The curls taper towards the tips creating cascades that begin mid way down. High Octane is a very full and dense piece weighing in at close to 5 1/2 ounces but it is not too much. The big body and volume combined with the luxurious curl pattern create a wild elegance that is boisterous yet very classy. You can tame High Octane by Raquel Welch in many exciting ways. Off the face, worn up, worn half up or worn back. This is clip, scrunchy and barrette nirvana. What is great is that the styling is absolutely every day…wear it formal, wear it casual. and with High Octane every day promises to be a great raucous adventure.
High Octane is part of the Raquel Welch Signature Collection and is made from Raquel Welch’s True2Life Head Defiant fiber. This fiber will take heat up to 350 degrees so styling tools are an option. The fiber will hold styling nicely with the application of heat so straighten it a little, tighten it a little and keep a wide tooth comb with you at all times for on the spot maintenance. Given the density it is always worth reminding that when working with a wide tooth comb it is advisable to start at the bottom and move up slowly. A little finger styling is ok but never use a brush as you will be in trouble quickly.

The High Octane wig cap incorporates a monofilament top that promotes styles that involve a parting.
