Underneath the Wigs: Uncovering The Americans' Hair-Raising Disguises

On the back of The Americans' hair and makeup trailer door is a photo collage of the cast and crew each in the same wig. It's not Clark or John Denver or any other of Philip's (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth's (Keri Russell) follicular get-ups on the FX series — but Felicity's famous curls.

"Isn't it hilarious? I love it," Russell, the erstwhile Felicity, tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's so great. I'm all about the hair!"

TV wigs: Tricks or treats? Vote now!

So is The Americans. The spy drama has never met a wig it didn't like, outfitting Russell and Rhys in such ridiculous and fantastic espionage 'dos, ranging from dowdy to sexy, that the wigs have become the true stars of the show.

The Americans' Second Season Focuses on Family, Russia's Turbulent Class System

After spending years in a foreign country pretending to be married in order to infiltrate the United States, only now have The American's dynamic duo Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) come to realize what they really mean to each other.

Fortunately, Elizabeth does survive her run-in with the FBI in the Season 1 finale, and the super spies will explore what it's really like to be married and actually love each other in Season 2. But they'll have other problems to contend with this year as the children become more aware of the often strange lives their parents lead.

The Americans Finale Postmortem: Who survived Season 1?

And let's not forget that they're still spies, so there's that little issue of the Cold War reaching a boiling point. How will they deal? To get the scoop, TVGuide.com sat down with executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, who also tease trouble in the rezidentura with the arrival of one of the Soviet Union's upper elite, Nina's (Annet Mahendru) precarious new position with Stan (Noah Emmerich) and the possibility that Elizabeth and Phillip's secret lives may not stay secret for much longer:read more

Matt Roush's Top 10 of 2013

1. Breaking Bad
