Toup on toup.
There is a story that has circulated among some Star Trek fans that in the second season episode "The Deadly Years" (in which some members of the crew, including Captain Kirk, rapidly age - see above) Shatner wore an "old age" white-haired toup on top of his regular toupee. We are convinced that that story is simply not true - for the makeup department to do something like that would simply be ridiculous and totally pointless.
But we have found one such example that can be confirmed. Not sure what the above picture is, but we believe it is from an episode of Boston Legal (fans of the show, please help us out if you can). What we see is a toupee that is fake and supposed to be fake on top of a toupee (or plugs) that are fake but are supposed to be real. Shats should avoid such mind-bending stunts as they threaten the very fabric of the space-time continuum!
