Here Are All of the Wigs Worn on The Americans So Far

The Americans is many things — an espionage drama, a domestic drama, a period piece. And it does many things well — those perfectly timed eighties music cues, those dazzling hand-to-hand combat scenes, the painfully real moments of marital bickering. But there is but one thing in particular that we can't stop thinking about: the wigs. Wigs, wigs, wigs, wigs, wigs — The Americans is a wig bacchanalia, disguising its leads week to week in different (sometimes garish, sometimes sexy) hairdos. Good Lord, this show loves its wigs. Here's every wig we've seen so far on Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, from vixen to doofy bureaucrat.
