A new episode of Portlandia airs tonight so we thought we would take a moment to give a little shout out to our favorite supporting character. While there are a lot of amazing guest stars (Eddie Vedder! Johnny Marr! Kristen Wiig!) who we adore, we don’t know about you, but each week when we tune in to Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy we kind of want to see what’s on Fred’s head. Each week his topper is decked out in some new hirsute wig fashion that radically changes his look while adding to the scene. Is it any surprise that “Portlandia” won an Emmy for costumes for a variety/music program? Nope. The wigs are such an important part of the show that we thought they deserved their own special mention. Don’t forget to tune in tonight for an all new episode of “Portlandia” at 10/9c and to see what Fred’s head is wearing this week.
Here our five favorite Fred wigs (so far):
1. This Guy
Flock of Seagulls inspired hair makes live relaxing music even more relaxing, right?
Beard wig! Plus fake earlobes.
3. Harajuku Girls
There is no doubt that these wigs are works of art.
Fred makes this ginger beauty his own. And the matching moustache is just icing on the redheaded cake.
You can tell that Candace takes a lot of pride in her hair and can you blame her? It’s lovely.
“Portlandia” airs on IFC on Fridays at 10/9c
