Dolly Parton, known for her unique voice with its incredibly strong vibrato, has been dazzling audiences since before some of us can even remember. As one of country’s most honored female performers of all time, we’re honored to present you with a few tidbits you probably didn’t know about the Gold, Platinum, and Multi-Platinum award winner.
So, About The Wigs
Dolly Parton and wigs are pretty much synonymous. Actually, no, who are we kidding? Not “pretty much”, they are synonymous. This superstar adores her hair when its incredibly blonde and super-teased. To call it a classic trademark would be an understatement. However, there’s a reason behind the wigs – turns out that Parton can’t style her real hair. Once, she told People magazine, “I used to try to keep my own hair teased as big as I like it, and having the bleach and all of that, it just broke off.” So her solution to those pesky hair woes was fake hair – quite the solution, eh?
51 years, that’s how long Dolly Parton has been married to Carl Thomas Dean. In fact, for their 50 year wedding anniversary, these lovebirds renewed their vows. To which Parton said, “We’re really proud of our marriage. It’s the first for both of us. And the last.” While there is tons of speculation regarding if they have an open relationship, these two brush the rumors off and just keep on.
