High Octane Raquel Welch Wig Review

The Raquel Welch High Octane wig was introduced in late 2020 as part of the 2020 Fall Collection. High Octane launched into immediate popularity. Within two months the wig was backordered in almost every color. In reviewing the product it is easy to see what all of the fuss is about. This will prove to be a blockbuster style for years to come. 

Styling Options:

High Octane
  • Mid to longer length
  • long layered 
  • beachy curl
  •  wavy 
  • 10in bangs
  • 13in sides and crown
  • 11in nape
  • Full and dense (weighing 5.5 ounces)

It falls in deconstructed waves and flows beautifully to the mid back. The curls taper towards the tips creating cascades that begin mid way down. The big body and volume combined with the luxurious curl pattern create a wild elegance that is boisterous yet very classy. Wear in brilliant styles such as, off the side of your face, in an updo, 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.

Cap Construction

Raquel Welch’s High Octane Wig is created around the exquisite Memory Cap 3 base with a lace front and a monofilament top. The wefts flex and stretch to mold comfortably and shape nicely to the head. The stretchy ribs are covered in a layer of silicone which is unique to Raquel Welch wigs. It prevents slipping and sliding and ultimately providing a more secure, confident fit. The High Octane wig cap incorporates a monofilament top that promotes styles that involve a parting. Part to the left or the right or even in the center and the monofilament makes each look natural and stylish. The cap also incorporates the delicate and magical temple to temple lace front that creates the most discrete and almost undetectable hair line that makes Raquel Welch wigs so great. The fiber is hand tied into the lace front to create a subtle and totally natural hairline and this promotes all kinds of off the face styling options that give this wig so much styling versatility.
