#HQGirlCrush: Hayley Williams

If somebody tells you they’ve never heard of Hayley Williams, don’t believe them- they’re lying…probably (granted they haven’t been living under a rock). Whether a fan of R&B, metal, pop or rock, everyone has come across this stunning super-talented singer at least once! Not only has she got killer vocal chords, she is known for pulling off any hairstyle and colour with an infinite amount of sass!

Who is Hayley Williams?

Best known as lead singer and songwriter for rock band Paramore, Hayley Williams has been destined for success since age 15 when the band was formed and has continued to leave her mark in the music industry to this day.

Despite her edgy personality portrayed through her music, Hayley Williams has been an inspiration and role model to fans everywhere. She was involved in Pinktober to raise money for breast cancer, overcomes constant sexist comments due to the alternative culture she is involved with and she creates a pathway for young people, giving them the confidence to explore their personalities.

Top 3 Hayley Williams Looks

The Alternative Mermaid//The Beach Waves

Hayley Williams’ hair usually varies in colours ranging across the red and orange scale so this short blue do is a bit different.  Her make up has been toned down to the max in this look compared to her usual bright daring style image. Invest in the Redken Fashion Waves Sea Salt Spray for the cute beach waves, add some Japonesque Eyelashes-Naturally Long Lash on to your eyelids for some lash definition and you’re ready to go!

The Fiery Phoenix//Exploring The Reds

The most recognisable Hayley Williams’ look as mentioned earlier explores the many possible shades of reds and oranges. This iconic image screams punk rock and it’s not one of those celebrity styles you feel unable to recreate. Get the glitzy emerald eyes with RMK Gold Impression Eyeshadow-01 and a sweep of black eyeliner, pop on some Rimmel Kate Summer Shades Lipstick in Red/Orange to continue the colour trend, finished!

The Classic Red//With A Twist

Our final favourite Hayley Williams’ look is the cute wavy bob with the classic black eyeliner and smouldering red lips. Even when sophisticated style comes into play, she still manages to achieve a cheeky punk vibe with the cute quirky hair colour and decorative bows on her outfit. Adding a coat of Daniel Sandler Micro-bubble Lipstick in Titanium Micro Red heightens the levels of sass (even more so if it matches your hair colour) and some Paul Mitchell Extra Body Firm Finishing Spray completes this bold look.
