This color brightens my pale skin like no other! Not to mention it smells like Earl Grey tea with a hint of lavender. I used this color after lightening my new growth with their lightening kit and it was perfect. Added a bit of Olaplex No. 6 and No. 7 and boom! I will recommend this brand to others for sure.

it’s RIOT ERA-Hayley Williams’ shade of orange! tried it with ex girl, (split hair color). RIOT will really stay with your hair longer compared to Ex girl.Ex girl fades after 1-2 washes, but RIOT didnt disappoint me. It will lasts for a month. it’s more of the RED pigment (which is really hard to get off your hair). smells really good too

Being the biggest Paramore fan, I had to try Hayley’s product and I love it! It does fade a little with every wash but I think it’s completely worth it since it’s not that expensive and it really is a great product. My hair is softer after using it and it smells AMAZING. I mixed this with a little of Ex-Girl and it went from a deep pink/red to a really nice rose gold. I personally like that it fades a little with every wash because I can change it often by adding more orange or pink. I can’t wait to try the other colors! I highly recommend especially if it’s your first time dying your hair since it doesn’t destroy your hair like some other hair dyes.

Although it seems like it pulls a reddish orange, this color is extremely perfect! I kind of regret bleaching my hair out and going with PPL Eater, which turned my hair a vivid blue color. Would probably try to go back to this color once the PPL Eater color fades out.

I mixed RIOT! and Steal My Sunshine to create a peachy-orange look. Absolutely stunning. GDY’s formula is outstanding and leaves your hair looking better than it was before you dyed it. For best results wash your hair with GDY’s Color Kind Shampoo and condition with the Color Kind Conditioner. The Pre-Wash and Primer also keep your hair healthy and fresh. LOVE YOU GDY.

First time using GDY products and I’m now OBSESSED! Color turned out great, was super easy to wash off the dye that got on my skin and it smells AMAZING! I dye my hair frequently and from now on this will be the only dye I use!

I just got this hair dye today at Sally’s, and I was so early to ask for it they haven’t even put it out on display yet! I lightened my hair a bit which was still Kowabunga and I was a little afraid that it would turn brown because the green stuck on my hair pretty well… but it didn’t!
The last time I went orange it just looked like a bad bleach job trying to strip brown but Riot is so intense and bright the sun might be afraid to show its face!
Of course, I listened to the entirety of Riot! during the process, and it’s certainly the most fun I’ve had dyeing my hair since the first time I’ve ever dyed it.
Also- it didn’t stain AT ALL. Usually, hair dye tends to leave messy stains on my forehead and on my sink (I have a bad habit of not protecting my face with vaseline) and it just wiped straight off!
I’d recommend this colour and brand to anyone willing to try it out! It’s amazing and has brilliant vibrant colours.

Super duper stoked on the reformulation for this one. Last time I used Riot it barely left a slight tint and I tried to do an ombré of Riot into Steal My Sunshine and SMS def stole the whole show.( not mad about it ) but that’s all in the past because this reformulation truly kicks ass. It doesn’t stain my hands, smells sOoOoo good and makes my hair feel AMAZE BALLS! The consistency is really easy to spread on my hair which is a big + for me since my hair gets tangled easily and this orange, let me tell ya, this orange IS IT! The color is so rich and deep yet still super vibrant? I don’t know how y’all are doing it but please keep doing it!!!

So, about this reformulation. I used the original formula of Riot about 2 years ago, which was a lovely and unique shade of orange-yellow. I recently wanted to get my hair back to vibrant colors and ordered some of this dye to get back to orange. The thing is is that the color is barely even orange anymore. I ordered a tube of Rock Lobster as well and the colors look almost identical.I know more red was added to combat the yellow, but I feel the color is hardly even orange anymore. The dye is still good but the color online and on the box are misleading. On top of that, the new Steal My Sunshine looks like the old formula of Riot and isn’t the true yellow that made SMS such an exceptional dye.
Our new formulation of Riot is more red-based than yellow-based. When comparing the colors in the tubes, they do look similar because they both have strong red undertones. Our Riot does dye hair orange but it no longer fades to yellow because it is now a red-based orange. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have been caused and we hope you ended up with your desired hair color!

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
HOW TO APPLY
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.
