    This dye is amazing. It didn’t stain my skin, made my hair super soft despite having been bleached 3+ times, and was incredibly vibrant. 5 washes in with lukewarm water and a bit of left over dye in my conditioner and its barely faded. If you’re looking for a firey orange, this is absolutely a good choice.

We named this shade after the first big Paramore record, RIOT! It was during that album cycle that I became known as “the flame-headed frontwoman” of our music scene and pseudo-emo image became synonymous with a whole era of alternative music. It wasn’t something I really planned. I’d met Brian a few months prior to shooting Paramore’s video for “Misery Business” and I told him I kind of wanted to look like a comic book character. He cut my bangs into a faux-hawk, dyed them neon orange, and sent me off with a few bottles of the same dye to touch up with.
If Brian had not created that look for me, a lot of things might be different today. The coolest part of it all is how close we became since that day. We had to name the orange after RIOT! because that was a really definitive time in both of our lives. – Hayley

1. To create the best canvas for your color, we recommend lightening your hair. Use our Lightening Kit and follow the directions to achieve the correct foundation for your color.
2. Mix color in the GDY Color Mixing Bowl and use the GDY gloves to prevent staining hands. (see GDY Tool Kit)
3. Do a strand test to insure color is as desired.
4. Section out dry hair and apply the color. Make sure color is fully saturated at every step.
5. Let the color sit for at least 30 minutes – the longer you let it sit, the more vibrant the color.
6. Rinse with cold water, gently dry your hair and style as desired.


  • Apply shea butter, coconut oil or thick conditioner to the hairline to prevent staining.
  • While color is processing, use a cap to keep the color damp.
  • Product will stain, so protect all surfaces and clothing.
  • Rinse with our Fader to minimize bleeding of the color.
  • Allow at least 24 hours before your first shampoo.


  • The more you wash your hair, the more your color will fade. Rinse with cool water when you do shampoo…as cold as you can stand if you’re up for it!
  • Use Conditioning treatments! You can actually use our Fader as a hair mask! Leave it in for 10-15 minutes for softer hair.
  • Save leftover dye to touch ups roots when they come in. Simply seal up your unused portion and store in a cool, dry place. The product will last up to 12 months after opened.
  • Add a few drops of your GDY Dye into your shampoo and/or conditioner to keep the color bright.
