Welcome back to our blog here at Wigstudio1. Today let's take an in depth look at Raquel Welch In Charge in Pale Gold Wheat, RL14/22. In Charge is part of the new Fall 2020 collection. This color is really nice, if you don't care for rooted styles you might give this one a try. Pale Gold Wheat is a dark blonde evenly blended with a champagne blonde (the manufacturer says it is blended with platinum, but in my opinion it is more of a champagne blonde, either way it is beautiful. I will insert some photos of this color in outdoor and indoor lighting. It's no secret that Raquel Welch Upstage is my favorite wig (as of today anyway) and In Charge reminds me so much of that style, it is like the little sister of Upstage with a bit of wave.

Keep in mind that indoor lighting shows the blondes brighter than in person, this is due to the lights we have to use in order to create videos for YouTube. That is why I think it is important to show the colors in indoor and outdoor lighting in an attempt to give you an accurate picture of the color. I mostly wear rooted colors, however in this case I have really enjoyed the non rooting on this style. I think that is because how the highlighting is placed on this style. You can see that the highlight goes all the way to the base of the wig, giving it that "just out of the salon" look, it is beautiful! I have already worn this to work and had so many compliments on the style and color. If you have watched my reviews of Raquel Welch styles you know I love her lace front and highlights, especially how they concentrate the lighter shades around the face. 

The back of In Charge is slightly stacked giving it a very nice neckline that sits snug to the neck. The specs for In Charge are front 7 3/4, crown 7, sides 6 1/2, back 6 1/2, nape 3 and it weighs 4.1 oz.

Cap construction for In Charge consists of a gorgeous lace front, a monofilament part and the memory cap III, this wig is also made of heat friendly fibers.The cap is open wefted and has closed ear tabs with stays. I have finally begun to really enjoy heat friendly fibers. In the beginning of my wig journey I was so unsure of how to deal with them or care for them, but as time has gone by I have learned so much about them and the advantages of heat friendly fibers. I love that they are not shiny (although that can be taken care of with washing and dry shampoo) and that you can change the style by adding curls, straightening, etc. When the ends start to get tangled, I spray them with a detangle spray and gently comb them out (using a wide tooth comb) and I will use my heat brush to run through the ends to keep them looking good.

In Charge has enough length to easily add some hair accessories to change up the look. I think that I will add some more loose curls to mine and then wear it in a half up and half down style for a dressy occasion.

If you have wanted to try Upstage but thought it was too long, you should give In Charge a try, I think you will love it as much as I do! Be sure to see all the Raquel Welch styles at Wigstudio1.com.
