What Color is Dolly Parton’s Real Hair?

Blonde-haired Woman Standing Between Green Plants

She’s always wearing a flamboyant, large wig and never her natural hair. If you’ve been wondering what color it is, Dolly Parton’s real hair is sandy blonde. You probably imagined her in such hair color because of her high blonde wigs. She’d have wanted it brighter and yellow; hence, she tried hair bleaching when she was younger.

Her love for wigs is on another level. It’s one hair accessory associated with this icon’s image throughout her music career. Dolly Parton prefers wigs because they offer more creativity than her natural hair. Therefore, she has enough wigs to wear a new one daily. On top of that, she admits that she either wear a wig or do an upsweep of her hair. You can read the rest of the interview with Andy and Maura

In 2020, Dolly Parton posted an old picture on her Instagram account and had fans loving and commenting about her natural hair. However, that picture was black and white, so we can’t tell her hair color. In it, her hair is mid-length, swept to the side and back, letting us see her beautiful face. It’s the same picture in her book, Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics.

She’s not the only celebrity who’s served us countless hair colors and styles that we are curious about her natural tresses. Jennifer Aniston’s natural hair color is almost a mystery.


Did Dolly Parton always have blonde hair?

Yes, she’s a natural blonde. However, her hair is sandy blonde. According to her, it’s not radiant blonde. Plus, she wanted a high, large hairstyle, and wigs give her that look. This short video is an excerpt from her 1987 variety show, Dolly. The show would start with Dolly in a bathtub talking to the audience. In this particular video, she says that’s her natural hair, and we can’t help but love it! It’s baby fine and styled like one of her many wigs.

Now, compare her supposed natural hair with the wig she brought Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

So, that might be the difference between Dolly Parton’s real hair and the wigs she loves.
