Hayley Williams’ Hair: A History

By Emilie.

Hayley Williams is hair goals. Fact.

Paramore are back and even though we’re old enough to know better, that means we’re currently existing in shameless, unadulterated peak fangirl mode. So here we’ve collated our personal favourite Hayley hair moments… just because.

First up is the Now era. Which also made us want a micro fringe now-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow. Pros: it looks f**cking cool.  Cons: it takes about a year to grow out.


The video for Hard Times landed the other week and we were just as interested in what Hayley’s hair would be doing as we were the music. The grown-out fringe and ice blonde shade did not disappoint.

You can probably count the number of people who can pull off blue hair on one hand, but no surprise, our girl Hayley is one of them. Other personal favourites are Katy Perry and Sophie Hannah Richardson, if anyone is interested.

Basically the hair cut we’ve aspired to have since the age of around 17. A long, chopped-into fringe that hits the magical length of just below the eyebrows but not in the eyes, plus layers. Effortless.

Remember the time Hayley dyed her hair purple? No, neither did we. But this pic proves that she can pull off literally any colour of the rainbow. We love the twisted bun mohawk as well. And the matching eyeshadow.


And we round off the list with the Misery Business era. It was the hair that spawned a thousand YouTube hair tutorials. Everyone wanted it. Everyone had it.

We’d be smiling too.
