Wigs Add Panache to Subterfuge on ‘The Americans’

 The 1980s never looked as good as they do on The Americans, the new hit FX television drama that chronicles the exploits of two deep-cover Soviet KGB officers posing as an American married couple at the height of the Cold War. Not since the airing of the original Mission Impossible television series in the late 1960s have so many wigs been used in the service of politics!

Masquerading as a typical Washington D.C. suburban couple with the requisite two children, actors Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play Elizabeth and Philip Jennings whose marriage is as big a sham as their travel agent cover which provides the perfect ruse for the show’s intricate story lines and surprising plot twists. As the show’s premier season has evolved, both Elizabeth and Philip have proven to be masters of disguise, employing makeup artist trickery and a closet full of wigs in the service of espionage to dupe their marks and steal America’s secrets.

Gymnast Gabby Douglas Puts Her Own Spin on FLOTUS Bangs

First lady Michelle Obama has been a fashion trend-setter since she first stepped on stage to support her husband’s first bid for the presidency. Not since Jackie Kennedy has the world paid such careful attention to the clothing and hairstyle choices of an American first lady. The always surprising FLOTUS managed to do it again when she debuted her new bangs just before the president’s second inauguration.

Providing an attractive cap to a face-framing layered cut, the first lady’s blunt-cut bangs sparked plenty of controversy from those who preferred her previous off-the-forehead style; but the bangs have also elicited their share of copycat admiration. Cute-as-a-button gymnast Gabby Douglas, who weathered her own hair controversy during the Olympics when her sloppy ponytail won less than gold medal reviews, put her own spin on the Obama bangs when she walked the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards in January. Sporting thick, blunt bangs over long loosecurly locks, the now 18-year-old gold medalist was the epitome of the young sophisticate.

With beautiful, natural-looking wigs from, you can rock the new bang trend without snipping yours:

  • Dawn by Vivica Fox, a 15-inch-long silky straight page with attractive bangs, mimics Michele Obama’s sleek, face-framing, fashionable style.
  • If you want the same sophisticated look in a longer style, Charli by Vivica Fox offers 18 inches of silky smooth locks with a center skin part and slightly wispier bangs.
For Gabby’s thick-bang curly style, choose Cowgirl Haute by Forever Young, a full-bodied wig with gorgeous, eyebrow-skimming full bangs and soft flowing curls that tumble past the shoulders.

New Cancer Treatment May Shelve Chemotherapy Wigs

The loss of hair during chemotherapy is an emotional event for women battling cancer. Whether we wear it short or long, full or cropped, our hair is part of our feminine identity. Its loss during cancer treatment is one more indignity in a list of many that cancer inflicts on the body.

While there is tremendous support for women who are fighting cancer, many women wish to fight their battle in a more private arena, spared the well-meant but prying questions of strangers. Hair loss publicizes a woman’s cancer battle, instantly identifying her as different at a time when she is struggling to live as normal a life as possible. Wigs for chemotherapy bring a sense of normalcy to life, helping to restore beauty and privacy to women with cancer. However, the day may come when chemotherapy wigs can be shelved as archaic artifacts of the cancer wars.

A targeted cancer treatment being developed by Seattle Genetics treats cancer without hair loss. Diagnosed with serious lymphoma, president Joseph Aronesty recently underwent a clinical trial for the new cancer treatment. “You don’t lose hair, you hardly even feel sick from it,” Joseph told Virtual-StrategyMagazine. “It was a remarkable success for me.”

Despite the potential loss of business – Joseph noted, “About 30% of wig sales are for women that lose hair after chemotherapy for various cancers and in particular breast cancer.” – Joseph is hopeful that within 10 years targeted treatment of breast and other cancers may replace chemotherapy. Until then, will continue to supply cancer patients with the highest quality, most comfortable monofilament wigs on the market.
