Honey, I will be buying as many Dolly Parton-brand wigs as my wallet will allow. So only one and I’ll have to pay it off over the course of a month and a half. Or maybe I’ll just go broke for Dolly Parton wigs and live on the street in a perfectly-untangled, hand-sewn human-hair wig cocoon? Dolly Parton: saving the homeless. Yes it’s true! In a new interview with Elle, Dolly has revealed to us that wigs will be included in her upcoming lifestyle brand.
Back in May, Dolly signed a deal to develop her own fashion line, and as part of Elle’s 2019 Women Of Hollywood issue, she talked about all the things coming up and wigs are on the menu.

Early in her career, @dollyparton’s friend and mentor Chet Atkins told her, “Dolly, you need to tone it down. You’re wearing too much makeup. You need to have a little more taste. People are never going to take you serious[ly] as a songwriter and singer.” “I said, ‘You know what? I can’t separate the two. This is who I am,’ she told ELLE. “I not only didn’t tone it down, I figured if my work was truly good enough, people would eventually recognize that. That’s how I’ve always looked at it: that I look totally artificial, but I am totally real, as a writer, as a professional, as a human being. A rhinestone shines just as good as a diamond.” Link in bio for the full cover story. #ELLEWIH
Dolly let us know she is exactly who we think she is when she said if she wasn’t a woman she’d be a drag queen and she’s shocked that people would consider her a fashion icon:
“God, no. To me, that’s still one of the funniest things, when people say that I am a fashion icon. I just always thought people thought I was so gaudy. I am! I’m flashy, and I’m flamboyant. Had I not been a girl, I definitely would have been a drag queen. I like all that flamboyance. I love all that sparkle, and shine, and color.”
Dolly also promised us that she’s hard at work on the her collection and we will be able to get our hands on all things Dolly:
“I’m going to do it. I’m going to get there. It’s one of my dreams–the makeup, hair, and wigs, clothes, all of that sort of thing… I don’t always wear them in my daily life, but I always still pouf up my hair. I still like to have that flashy hair. When I’m around home, I wear my little scrunchies, but I always put on some makeup and fix my own hair as cute as I can fix it. Wigs are just so handy. I’m so busy, and I have so many choices. I never have a bad hair day, and that’s a good thing.”
Dolly Parton ain’t ever have a bad anything. It’s just a matter of time until her lifestyle brand takes over. Gwyneth who? Martha who? You both don’t even see your real competition coming up from behind working hard–9 to 5. Dolly’s going to smoke you both. Strippers, porn stars and drag queens will be fighting over Dolly’s offering of 7-inch heels. Articles on the proper nighttime beats so you can wake up looking stunning will be read by everyone. And sex lives? Screw a $15,000 dildo–here’s the article: “Get It Out To Pee AND Get It Up For Three”. Come on Dolly! Give the people the lifestyle we deserve!
