“It is my aim to help women everywhere achieve whatever hair style they desire and to change their look and color on a whim,” says Raquel. “Since I started the Raquel Welch Signature Collection, I’ve witnessed enormous advances in technology that have allowed for countless improvements in the coloring, fibers, construction and wear-ability of our wigs. That means that they are lighter, more natural-looking, and more user-friendly than ever before.”

An icon of both stage and screen, Raquel partnered with HairUWear, the world leader in manufactured hair goods, to help women everywhere enhance their natural beauty with high-quality, stylish hairpieces that look completely natural. Together, they formed a line that offers an exceptional collection of wigs, extensions, and hair additions that are both incredibly comfortable and effortlessly glamorous. Made from the finest synthetic fibers or 100% human hair, each piece combines Raquel’s legendary beauty expertise with exclusive HairUWear technology.

“It’s been such an honor to work with Raquel over the past 15 years,” said Michael Napolitano, Owner & CEO of HairUWear. “She is a true style icon, and I am so inspired by her continued creativity, passion and insight, making the Raquel Welch Signature Collection one of the largest and most sought after wig brands in the world. I look forward to working closely with Raquel in this new role especially as we debut several new collections in the seasons to come.”
