Medium Length Monofilament Wig

The Upstage Wig by Raquel Welch is right for you if you would like to know what you look like with medium, shoulder length hair. Rather than having to put their hair through various chemical treatments such as dyes and perms, invest in a beautiful wig. Additionally, it means they can change length as and when they want to, without having to wait for their hair to grow back. The Upstage is one of our more popular monofilament wigs. The lace front, hand tied cap means that the wig looks and feels completely natural once on. Indeed, you will barely notice that you are wearing a wig and thanks to the various natural shades it is available in, nobody else will either. The hairs are synthetic but heat resistant, meaning you can style it in any way you like. We have a range of long, medium length and short wigs in stock. One of our other very popular medium length wigs is the Goddess Wig by Raquel Welch. This wig will truly make you look like the Greek goddess that is hidden somewhere inside of you. If you are interested in experimenting with our medium length wigs, then there are plenty for you to choose from. Each of them is beautiful and made out of a quality construction, meaning you will always look your very best. These wigs are designed to bring out the beauty within you, the beauty that is hidden in every woman, regardless of how her hair behaves that day.

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.

My third Upstage

I purchased my first Upstage 14 years ago, and she is still beautiful! Since this is a heat-defiant piece, I have the ends trimmed as they get a bit scratchy, and I eventually get to a great bob. This makes this wig last quite a while, and it looks great even in the end! Shaded Biscuit (RL19/23SS) is my go-to color. I hope they never stop making this wig! Raquel Welch's lace front is the best and makes this wig look even better when pulled away from the face. Thanks, as always to Patti's Pearls for their excellent service and help when needing questions answered. Thank you!!

Upstage Oh How I Love Thee....

If I had to list my top 5 favorite wigs, Upstage by Raquel Welch would be on that list!

What a beautiful wig! I fell in love with Upstage about 18 months ago when I was encouraged to try her after seeing numerous glowing reviews. This wig has everything I could want when I think of what defines the perfect helper hair.

This wig, for me, has it all--a comfortable, cool, handtied cap that feels like heaven, an impeccable, undetectable lace front, soft, silky, fibers, and the style is flattering to my round face! It is simply gorgeous!

The color I ordered, Shaded Iced Pumpkin Spice, is divine! Raquel Welch does an amazing job with reds. I love the highlights and how Shaded Ice Pumpkin Spice isn't too brassy or too orange. It's perfect for me! I also love the rooting, it's not a harsh root or overdone, it blends perfectly. My bio hair is about the same color as the root, so it works well with my eyebrows.

There is one slight problem which is totally on me: I ordered a Large Upstage. I own an Upstage Large in Shaded Biscuit (my fave blonde of all-time) and at that time, the cap fit perfectly. However, since then, I've lost a considerable amount of weight, and it appears my head must've shrunk too because now a large is too big for me! It never occurred to me my head would get skinnier too, so I didn't bother to re-measure. The cap now fits me baggy at the back of my head.
However, I am unable to send it back because I did play with it and put a little wig wax on it. But that's okay, my cousin is going to take this Upstage--she fell in love with it, and it fits her head wonderfully.

So, for now, I will just save up my money and order Upstage at another time. And next time, I will make sure to measure my head first just in case! So, an expensive lesson was learned here.

As always, thanks to Patti's Pearls for a perfect transaction and super fast shipping. You rock! :)


I ordered a large wig as I am a 22.5, and this wig is too large for me. It looked very nice although I was not able to play with it, as I was sending back. I exchanged it for an average cap and am waiting to receive it. Hope it works!

I wear this wig every day and couldn't be happier

I'm not new to wigs - I've needed them for some time, and I've tried everything from synthetic to human hair - and I've never been more pleased with any replacement hair product than the UpStage by Raquel Welch.

It's super style able, wears well, responds nicely to being washed and the price is more than reasonable. And it doesn't look at all like a wig - people are usually shocked if I tell them,

What more could one want?

Upstage in Bisquit color

I can't say enough for this stunning wig absolutely amazing. By far she is my favorite wig I have purchased. It does not even look like a wig, the fibers are soft like human hair. Very comfortable to wear and you can wear so many different styles. I wish I owned her in more colors.
