Did Suzanne Somers Wear A Wig on "Three's Company"?
I was talking to someone and the show came up. He insists that Suzanne Somers wore a wig for the role of "Chrissy."

I think he's wrong..

Anyone have any ideas of which is correct?

In the opening scene of the first couple of seasons Jack Ritter falls off a bike while staring at a pretty brunette walking away from the camera. Said brunette was apparently Somers in a wig. So technically she did wear a wig for the show, but only once and not in character.

She was the blonde in the T-bird in American Graffiti, and her hair there was the same as in Three's Company. I suspect that as the series advanced, it was augmented with falls and such, just to vary her appearance somewhat.

She also posed for Playboy with essentially the same hairstyle and color.

When I see actresses with a whole lot of hair, I always assume it's enhanced somehow. In the days of the Beatles, I labored mightily to get the deep bangs and 'bump' , like Jane Asher and Patty Boyd, and of course that style required a little help. Heather Graham in Austin Powers had more hair than I could believe!
