Joining the ranks of celebrity-backed fashion accessories that have made a significant splash are Raquel Welch wigs. Her Celebrity Signature Collection contains a smattering of monofilament wigs that add an immediate infusion of style to boring or stale ensembles. It may be the actress' name that lures customers in, but it's the outstanding craftsmanship that keeps them.

In the '60s, Welch enjoyed a reputation as one of Hollywood's legendary ingenues. From 1968's Bedazzled to 1966's Fantastic Voyage, Welch found her way into a steady stream of leading roles. In 1969 she made the cover of Time, thereby cementing her reputation as one of the decade's premier sex symbols.

The Appeal of Raquel Welch Wigs

With her leading lady status secured, it was hardly a leap for Welch to move from movies to fashion. The success of Raquel Welch wigs today owes much to the credibility the star built up since 1964, when she broke in with her first film, House Is Not a Home. Since then, her product line, which includes hairpieces, hair additions, add-ons, and extensions, has grown into one of the most sought-after in the personal grooming industry.

Cuts such as the Indulgence and Masquerade are lively, modern, and point up an eminently contemporary sensibility. The Accent and Destiny, meanwhile, show how "boy cuts" don't have to rob their wearers of their femininity. In fact, many of these shorter shags and bobs form the nucleus of sales across the entire product line.
