The Number of Wigs Used on Set Was Aplenty
"The team did our best to make all 150 cast members portray the characters they were playing," Dehaney said. "Many hair pieces were worn to portray the different decades."
How much is "many," you wonder? Anywhere from one to five, depending on the actor. "We used Christian's natural hair for [the character's younger years] and Dick Cheney had five wigs," she said. "Lynne also had five wigs to carry her through the decades. I used a wig wrap called a Fracture wrap instead of a wig cap, which gives a nice, even, tight wrap. It also allows you to pin it so that you can pull the skin up, or back a bit. Rumsfeld wore two different wigs. George Bush wore one wig that we altered the color and style to reflect the change of decades."
