Dolly Parton's 7 Most Gravity Defying 'Dos From Her New Tumblr

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Dolly Parton is a seasoned Twitter-er, and as of last week, the quippy country singer has added Tumblr to her list of internet skills. Right now, the page just compiles her fav fan content, which is great because so many pictures of Dolly's hair. Hop over the jump for the songstress's most gravity defying 'dos, in order of ascending height.

7. Dolly is getting older and her hair is possibly thinning, but we like to think the lack of height here is due to the fact that her superhuman follicles have built a resistance to the mousse/hair spray/roots 'roids that she's treated them to in the past.

6. You can't really see this one's height but it gets a shout out because a) it's magnificent and b) the bang circumference.

5. Getting there.

4. From the astronaut years.

3. Blurry but worth it. Also, round.

2. We hear you, Dolly. But you can't hear us on account of the hair.

1. Somebody make a how-to tutorial for this and put it on the internet. Thanks.
