Latest posts ‘Paramore’
One of our admins, Lidia wrote an article about Hayley and her vegan hair dye line Good Dye Young for Cosmopolitan Finland. You can read the whole article below and see the original here (in Finnish).
Singer Hayley Williams, 27, has had a busy year. In January, Hayley’s band Paramore announced they were working on their fifth album. In February, Hayley married her longtime boyfriend, guitarist Chad Gilbert of the band New Found Glory. In March she launched a vegan hair dye company, Good Dye Young.
Hayley, who dyed her hair for the first time when she was 12 years old, had been cooking up the idea of a hair dye company for several years. Taking over a completely new field outside of music was a big step for Hayley, so she wanted to do it with her best friend, hairstylist Brian J. O’connor, 29.
Good Dye Young’s goal is to create a community where everyone can express themselves freely. When Hayley was young, she received many disapproving looks for her bright hair, because there weren’t many people with colored hair in her hometown in the state of Tennessee.
– I’m glad that something I do with a business somehow helps people, who have ever somehow felt left out. It gives my work a real meaning, Hayley tells Cosmopolitan.
It was important to Hayley to have people of different backgrounds and ethnicities represent her company. For example, the plus-size models the company used in their campaigns, were well received.
Hayley was bullied in school, and that’s why she wants to encourage young women to ignore other people’s opinions.
– Every girl deserves to be seen and heard. I would like that all are valued for who they are, Hayley said when receiving the Trailblazer-Prize at Billboard Women In Music Awards in 2014.
Good Dye Young currently has five semi-permanent hair dyes: Red (Rock Lobster), pink (Ex-Girl), blue (Blue Ruin), Orange (in the Riot), and yellow (Steal My Sunshine). Hayley’s favorite is the orange one.
– Orange is definitely the color I feel the most comfortable in.
Good Dye Young’s products contain sunflower oil, as well as an essential oil, bergamot, which is said to reduce stress.
Hayley and her husband Chad Gilbert were at the Acceptance show at Mercy Lounge in Nashville, TN last night. Hayley tweeted about it and said it was her first Acceptance show since Paramore opened for the band in 2005.
Few fans, including one of our admins, Lidia, met the two at the show. Go to our gallery to see more new photos with fans.
Hayley was also spotted by a fan at Frothy Monkey in Downtown Franklin yesterday:
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 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.”
