The country singer is known for decking up every time she makes a public appearance, and now she has revealed the real reason for her signature makeup style.


72-year-old singer Dolly Parton's incredible frankness about her aesthetic enhancements was witnessed when she sat down for an interview with NBC host Al Roker in June 2003, as reported by CBS News.

She revealed that she started wearing wigs when she realized that her fine hair wouldn't match the persona she had developed over the years even if they were dyed.

Parton added that she chose to wear heavy makeup and a wig for every public appearance because she did not want someone to see her and be disappointed by her appearance.

She quipped that the way she is seen by others reflects her 'phony' self.

The I Will Always Love You singer now has a plethora of wigs in her wardrobe. In the beginning, it was just a fun experience for her, and a convenient conversation starter.


Eventually, she started to feel that the facade she kept up was actually her best look. She admitted to not being a natural beauty and decided the look would be a permanent one for her.

The singer has embraced her cosmetically enhanced persona and confessed to fixing any part of her body that she felt lacked perfection. She joked that she looks like a million bucks because she spent millions to get the look.

Parton is an interesting case, because despite looking very artificial, she is a very genuinely kind person. She admitted she spends a lot of time every day putting on her makeup and her wig.

The candid celebrity has been so dedicated to her makeup and hair routine that even her manager, Ted Miller, has not seen her any less glamorous than the general public does.

Miller said that he will likely never be able to see Parton as her normal self because she never steps out until she is completely ready.

Parton is one of the most-honored performers in the history of country music. Out of 46 Grammy nominations, Parton has bagged 9 awards.

Also, she is the richest country star. Do you want to find out what she and other country singers spend their wealth on? Watch this video!


25 of her albums have been certified as Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum Record by the Record Industry Association of America.
