Care Instructions
  • Before washing your wig or hair piece, gently remove tangles
  • Fill sink with cool water and submerge wig of hair piece. Emulsify with your choice human hair wig shampoo or Synthetic wig shampoo into the hair. 1
  • It is important to use shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for human or synthetic hair products.
  • Gently lather the hair with shampoo, while making sure that the hair is travelling in the same direction, DO NOT rub hair as this may cause tangling.
  • Rinse thoroughly in cool water until water runs clear.
  • For Human Hair wigs, apply conditioner avoiding the base cap of the wig or hair piece
  • With your fingers, work conditioner through the ends of the has for about 3-5 minutes
  • Rinse thoroughly in cold water until water runs clear
  • Wrap wig or hair piece in a towel and gently pat dry
  • DO NOT use a brush to detangle your human hair wig while it is wet, gently use a wide tooth comb
For Human Hair Fiber:
  • We recommend using a blow dryer (medium to medium-high heat) to style your human hair wig
  • Using a boar bristle/nylon round brush, work through hair in 2" sections starting at the nape working in a downward motion to ensure that hair stays smooth. Blow hair dry completely directing the hair in the shape you want to style
For Heat Defiant Fiber:
  • Spray with your choice of synthetic leave in conditioner
  • Air drying your wig or hair piece will give the best results. You can gently blow dry (low-medium heat) using only a wide tooth comb.
For Synthetic Fiber:
  • Allow wig or hair piece to dry naturally by placing on a plastic of wire wig stand. DO NOT blow dry.
  • Your wig or hair piece can be styled closer to the head for a fuller look
  • If fullness is desired, backcomb hair gently using your wig comb or brush then smooth the surface hair over
For Human Hair Fiber:
  • It is recommended to use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat
  • Your styling tools should be set no higher than 350F to help maintain the integrity of the hair
  • Work in small sections (1-2 inch starting at the nape)
  • When curling your human hair, you can use small metal clips to hold each curl while cooling for a tighter, longer- lasting curl. For a looser, more natural looking curl, allow curls to hang while cooling.
For Heat Defiant Fiber:
  • It is recommended to use professional grade heat styling tools with digital temperature settings to control heat
  • We recommend only using a wide tooth comb and working at 270-280 degrees F.
  • Gently comb hair free of tangles with a wide tooth comb
  • Starting at the nape, take ½ inch to 1½ inch sections of hair (smaller sections = tighter curls, larger sections = looser curls)
  • It is recommended to use a styling spray to protect the fiber
  • Gather hair into curling iron, smooth through to the ends. Roll iron up towards base of wig, staying 1-2 inches away
  • Hold for 10-15 seconds then turn the tip of the iron toward the ground and release curl into palm of hand
  • Holding curl in one hand, gather up towards base and secure curl with a small metal clip (like a pin curl)
  • Allow curl to cool completely (about 5 minutes); remove clip and let curl hang naturally
  • Hair can be combed with your wide tooth comb or fingers to blend curls
For Synthetic Fiber:
  • DO NOT use heat to style synthetic fibers and be cautious when standing near a heat source (i.e. open oven, heater, etc.) as excessive heat can damage the fiber.
  • Simply use your fingertips of wig brush/comb for your desired style.
  • Mono Top wigs allow multi-directional parting in the monofilament area. If the fiber is being resistant when changing the parting, warm your hands by vigorously rubbing them together and place your palm flat on the new part, hold for 10-15 seconds. The warmth from your hands will help the fiber settle into the new parting and direction.
  • When cutting synthetic fiber, we recommend using a dense steel blade shear. We do not recommend using a razor for cutting synthetic fiber. This tool can shred the ends and lead to fraying and damage to the fiber.

Black Tie Chic

Today I got my third Black Tie Chic. This time, I purchased the color RL9/24SS (Shaded Iced Cafe Latte). I love it (obviously because I have 3 now)! I also have Black Tie Chic in RL19/23SS (Shaded Biscuit) and RL17/23SS (Shaded Iced Latte Macchiato). I highly recommend it! This one is my style and color too!

I received my Black Tie Chic today, and I really like it a lot! The bangs need a bit of work, but the style is great. It reminds me of how I used to wear my hair when I had better hair. I would highly recommend it!

Black Tie Chic Is Beautiful But....

Despite my issues with Black Tie Chic, I am still giving it five stars.

The Pros:

1) The style is a gorgeous shag, and it really flattered my features.

2). The lace front and mono top are comfy, cool, and easy to wear. I have a 22 1/2" circumference and I didn't even have to adjust the Velcro straps for a better fit, which is a rarity for me. The lace front is perfect and undetectable. It doesn't itch or feel rough. In my opinion, Raquel Welch has some of the best lace fronts across the board.

3). The fibers are soft and silky.

4). The color I ordered (my favorite): Shaded Iced Pumpkin Spice is divine! It's a stunning red, and the rooting is done beautifully--not too harsh or long. The color is flattering to my cool, fair skin and green eyes.

The Cons:

1). The front is really thick! It makes it a challenge for me to work with. I've tried everything on it to get it to work: the heat of my hand, heat from my hot air brush, Wig wax, Piece Out Cream, and I even trimmed a bang into it in my frustration. But I still can't get that front to look right! The front ruins it completely and that's a shame.

So, unfortunately, Black Tie Chic will have to be a no for me. It's a shame too because I love the shag style and the color and everything else about that wig.

I got it off the Clearance section, as well as I have altered it. Therefore, I am unable to return it.

Maybe in the future, I will try it again because it is a darling hairstyle regardless. Maybe this is something Raquel Welch will fix at some point.

Thank you so much to Patti's Pearls for providing prompt, perfect service. You guys are the best! :)
