Hayley is on the cover of the newest issue of Rock Sound. The cover photo and other new photos in the magazine were taken by Lindsey Byrnes during a photoshoot at her home last year. You can see HQ versions of the photos in our gallery.
In this month’s issue, Rock Sound put together a list of the most influential, inspirational, important people in today’s scene – The Rock Sound 50. Hayley is number one on that list and the magazine includes a special interview with her, you can read it from the scans in our gallery, or below (click to enlarge). She talks about what it means to be influential in 2016, her experiences of growing up in a male-dominated and extremely public setting and what the future holds for her and Paramore.
According to the magazine Paramore’s 5th album is expected to be released in early 2017.
“Life can be pretty crazy sometimes, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel right now, and we’ll be back out there at the end of it. Life is a journey that is about finding your place and your purpose, and finding out what means the most to you, and following it with everything that you have. That’s something that I hope nobody – myself included – loses sigh of.”
Hayley talked to Popsugar about Good Dye Young during her and Brian’s visit to NYC a few weeks ago. You can read the whole article/interview below.
Hayley Williams’s New Line of Dye Makes It Simple to DIY Rainbow Hair
While rainbow hair has been the top beauty trend for the past few years, Hayley Williams was rocking colorful coifs well before it was cool. If you are a Paramore fan, then you’ve been familiar with her ever-changing mane since she and her bandmates got together in 2004.
“It’s amazing what dyeing someone’s hair will do for their day, let alone their identity, be it who they are or who they present to the world,” Hayley gushed to POPSUGAR. “I became passionate about that side of it.” The singer explained that she usually picks her hair hue based on her emotions, whether it’s due to her mood or the music that she’s working on. True fans have seen her sport every shade from red and blue to her favorite hue, orange (which she wore on her wedding day).
Because Hayley has been experimenting with hair color for so long, she knew exactly what she wanted from an at-home dye — and she couldn’t find it. She and her colorist, Brian O’Connor, would often mix two to three different brands together to achieve their desired results. That’s why they decided to collaborate on their own vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly color line, Good Dye Young, launching this June.
If you’ve never taken the plunge into rainbow hair, trust us when we say this brand will inspire you. Hayley and Brian worked hard to create a collection that is as fun and funky as it is good for your hair. The drip-free, creamy formula is packed with sunflower and bergamot oils to richly nourish every strand as it infuses it with semipermanent pigment. Good Dye Young is launching with five shades ($14 each), as well as the mixing potion “Fader” ($14) that allows you to customize your own pastel shade, a bleaching kit ($9), and a tool arsenal ($6).
And, yes, that means that Hayley and Brian want you to bleach your own hair at home — safely, that is. They’re equally passionate about education as they are about bright colors and have provided extensive resources on the Good Dye Young site. “We want people to feel empowered by Good Dye Young,” Hayley said. “The idea is to really create a world within hair, beauty, and fashion for people who are excited about expression.”
The duo has plans to provide fans with color recipes so they can craft their own perfect shade and are starting to shoot and share DIYs. But they’re already getting great feedback from Hayley’s celebrity pals, who got early access to the products. “I got to send hair dye to Shirley [Manson] from Garbage,” she said proudly. “And Josh [Dun] of Twenty One Pilots takes the pink on the road and touches up himself. He’ll write me randomly like ‘Man, it’s so easy to use!'”
Still wary of dyeing your strands at home? Color virgins, you can still add some pizzazz to your style without taking it platinum first. Brian suggested trying Rock Lobster or Blue Ruin (or mixing the two!) for a subtle stain on your mane that’s only visible in certain light. “I love that look,” Hayley added. “It’s really pretty but dark and mysterious, like [Fairuza Balk’s hair in] The Craft.”

Hayley talked to WWD about her new hair dye line, goodDYEyoung. Read the article below to find out more about the colors and which shades will be available. The online pre-sale begins on April 15th and Hayley will also be promoting the line on Parahoy, which starts today!
Hayley Williams is on a mission to empower her fans — especially when it comes to their hair.
The twentysomething Grammy Award winner and lead vocalist for the rock band Paramore, is now launching Good Dye Young, a vibrant hair-dye line designed for in-home use. And she’s putting her money where her mouth is: the line is entirely self-financed.
“I wanted to take the intimidation factor out of doing hair at home,” Williams told WWD. The singer’s own ever-changing, brightly dyed hair was the inspiration for GDY, and she noted that she hopes it will create an “all-inclusive counterculture than inspires creativity, community and most of all, color. The definition of self-expression is when you wake up in the morning and ask, ‘Who do I want to be today?’”
Williams collaborated with her longtime Nashville-based colorist and stylist, Brian O’Connor, and L’Oréal alum Erik Hoover, general manager for GDY, to bring the collection to market, a process that took four years.
Five colors, each priced $14, will be offered. GDY combines professional-grade pigments with a non-toxic, fragrance-free, synthetic formula that conditions the hair as it deposits color, and all of the offerings are vegan and cruelty-free formulas, Williams noted.
Rock Lobster is a bright red; Blue Ruin is a vivid blue; Ex-Girl is a vibrant pink; (red), Steal My Sunshine is a sunny yellow and Riot is a high-octane orange. (Williams said her favorites are Steal My Sunshine and Riot.) Application instructions are express in cartoons rather than long-winded explanations, said Hoover.
Also planned are a lightening bleach, tools such as a reusable bowl and brush and a fader that allows for custom pastel shades.
The line will be pre-sold on the web beginning April 15, for a May ship. Williams is also promoting the line to her fans on a cruise that will take place March 5-9. (“They’re the people who empowered me in the first place, so I wanted them to see it first,” said Williams.) Hoover added that the brand is examining bricks-and-mortar distribution and most likely will launch there in 2017. Global distribution is also in the plans.
The 27-year-old Williams, who married fellow musician Chad Gilbert on Feb. 20, plans to add more colors to the line “down the road.”
