Opinions on the matter posted to Quora, Reddit, Twitter, and numerous other discussion forums are mixed. Some people think that he does wear a wig, some say he doesn’t, and some just don’t care.

“I don’t know but it certainly is suspiciously highly consistent, so either it’s a toupee, or it’s real hair that gets very careful attention. At 52 I would expect he would show some gray if it were real, but it could be dyed,” Paul Conway posted to Quora on August 12, 2021.

“I hate the guy but he does have a beautiful mane of hair. I think it's natural, but honestly who cares if he wears a wig,” one Reddit user posted three years ago.

“Who cares if Tucker wears a toupee/hair piece? With or without one, he is still a moronic tv shock jockey who spreads disinformation & false conspiracy theories to his blind followers,” Steve Kelly posted to Quora on September 27, 2021.

Even Amazon’s Alexa has weighed in on the matter. “Although his hair seems extraordinarily thick and almost wig like, Tucker Carlson has actually had the same hair type since he was a young man. More likely than not, this is his own natural hair and not a toupee,” says a comment on Alexa Answers.

You won’t find an answer on Wikipedia. Although the website says that Carlson is left-handed, dyslexic, doesn’t drink, and doesn’t smoke, it makes no mention of whether his hair is real or fake.

USC’s “second best” parody newspaper, The Sack of Troy, got in on the fun and published the article “Tucker Carlson Removes Helmet of Hair to Reveal LEGO Head” in September 2020. A picture of Carlson accompanies the article doctored to make him look bald with a “stud” on his head that could fit a LEGO wig.

The satirical article has a fictitious quote of Carlson saying, “The tolerant left is non-existent. This is the world that Biden and Democrats want us to live in. Look out America, first they’re coming for our hair helmets, next they’ll take away our guns and say that others deserve the basic human rights I have. We are in danger.”

“Well, you know it's funny, we’ve got this dealer in Mumbai, um, and it’s real human hair,” Carlson joked, pulling at his quaff of hair, which looks pretty real.
