SHORT TAKES : Hair Harasses Crystal Gayle
Crystal Gayle may cut her famous ankle-length hair because it can be a pain in the neck. Literally.
Pressure from her hair’s extreme length gives her headaches and neck aches, the country-western singing star said before performing with her sister, Loretta Lynn, Tuesday at the Tulare County Fair.
It also takes an extraordinarily long time to wash and dry--five hours before her performance Tuesday. She lets her hair dry naturally instead of using an electric blow-dryer.
“The worst part is combing it out,” said the singer.
Her hair was down to the ground for her performance, but she had it up earlier in the day for convenience.
“It was catching on every knob in the trailer,” Gayle said. “It’s like wearing a gown.”
