Hayley Williams in the “Cinnamon” Music Video

Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams’ aesthetic has evolved considerably since her band’s early 2000s punk-rock heyday. Life events have prompted both an inspiring, thought-provoking solo album and steps away from her iconic orange hair color. The colorful music video for “Cinnamon” concludes a story sequence which, using fantastical and slightly disturbing imagery, conveys Hayley Williams’ recovery process following traumatic life experiences and depression.

Note: In these videos, Hayley Williams wears the front of her hair bleached blond, while the back side is dark brown. In “Cinnamon,” it is heavily teased and tied back with a scrunchie. You can achieve this style by clipping dark brown hair extensions into the back of a blond wig.
