  • I remember reading an article about her. She saw a lady (the town whore?) and modeled her self after her. She loved the way she looked, big hair, short skirts, and high heels. Her ma told her 'she is just trash".. So Dolly thought I wanna be trash. It is a funny story she said that person was the most beautiful she had ever seen. So she started dressing like her.
    My sister said she saw her once in Alabama with out a wig on and her hair was just about the same as the wig but not as big.

  • She wears the wigs because they're easier. She has a very iconic look... one that takes alot of time and effort to achieve. Having a wig already styled and ready to go cuts down on the time she has to spend getting ready for appearances.
    Basically... it just saves her alot of time and effort. It's something that was super common "back in the day" in showbiz

  • she does. and she didn't use to be bald..i've seen her when she said it was her own hair, and it didn't look bad, just a little less BIG. she's always worn extra hair! and isn't shy about admitting it, either. i like dolly!

  • She's not bald. Just fine normal hair that would never look like how she wants it to look in a million years, so she wears wigs. My mom said growing up, alot of women wore wigs as if they were hats. No one thought anything of it.

  • She said in an interview once that when she was younger she always admired hookers and thought they looked so pretty, that's why she dresses as she does with the wigs, nails, boob job, heels, et.c.
