Hayley Williams of Paramore at The Final Riot Concert

Hayley Williams is a multi-talented singer, once hailed as the “great orange hope” by John Mayer the her iconic dyed orange hair she had in the Paramore band’s early days, and an accomplished musician in her own right. With her Paramore bandmade Taylor York, Williams has recently released a groundbreaking solo album which candidly gives insight to her personal struggles. Although Hayley Williams’ personal aesthetic has evolved considerably since her debut in the music world, we can’t help but go back to the classic redheaded punk look she sported during Paramore concerts in the mid 2000’s.

To cut and style the red wig we’ve linked below, you can follow this YouTube video tutorial for Scene haircuts.

Siouxsie Sioux from Siouxsie and the Banshees

Siouxsie Sioux (real name Susan Janet Ballion) is best known as the lead singer of British post-punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees as well as The Creatures. 77UK punk style is a lot about layering and excess. Including the materials that are listed here, if you have extra chain jewelry at home, feel free to add to the costume. Another important detail for this outfit is hair and make-up. For the hair, apply the coloring pomade and brush it through so there are no clumps. Use the crimper in a few random spots to add texture. and tease from the back until it feels right to you! The pomade should hold everything in place so you wont need hairspray. Look up tutorials for hair teasing so you can be confident you are doing it right. There are also great tutorials online for mimicking Siouxsie’s iconic eyemake up! This look will be an ideal choice for Halloween night.

Debbie Harry is the lead singer of the band Blondie. Blondie was one of the frontier early punk bands of 1970’s New York City and played at the famed CBGB’s with bands like The Ramones and The New York Dolls. For Debbie’s hair I recommend using texturing paste and teasing it with a comb. Creating a dramatic smoky eye is essential, look up tutorials if you need a bit of practice. Finish off with a glossy lip and you are ready to go out.

Tom DeLonge in First Date Video

In Blink-182’s music video for “First Date,” Tom DeLonge assumes his alter-ego Boomer, a crude and inconsiderate dimwit. Not much is known about Boomer other than that he has kissed his own brother, and is currently in prison for “undisclosed reasons.” For this costume, pretty much any lightly-colored yellow shirt will work.

John Bender

The misunderstood bad boy, John Bender, was grunge before grunge was considered a fashion style. The guy was so cool not only did he cut the sleeves off of his flannel shirt but he wore two jackets. So if you want to attract your own Claire Standish then wear layers and learn to light a match with your teeth.
