You Gotta Have Blue Hair / Music

Go To

A list of music videos in which people have unusual colored hair.

  • Almost ANY Visual Kei performance video. At the very least you'll have some Japanese blondes if you're in the 80s-mid 90s, and all colors of the rainbow are represented by many bands at some point or another.
    • hide is of special note - his hair in his solo videos and his videos for X Japan ranged from blonde to green to red-spectrum from candy-apple red to pink...
    • As is Imai Hisashi of Buck Tick. Probably the only competitor with hide for sheer number of hairstyles, cuts, wigs, and similar.
  • 2D of Gorillaz has blue hair, Noodle has purple, and it's been proven that it's natural for both. 2D's was apparently caused by one of his many head injuries causing all his hair to fall out and grow back in blue — "collars and cuffs", as Murdoc puts it, though 2D's eyebrows still appear to be black. Despite his not having been born with it, at least some of 2D's multiple illegitimate children apparently also have blue hair. Noodle's hair started out black, but faded to purple during "Demon Days" and now appears to have faded even further to blue in "On Melancholy Hill", and now has black hair with a blueish tint as of "Humanz". Murdoc also has a purplish tinge to his hair in some pictures.

  • During the early days of Muse, frontman Matt Bellamy has been known to have red hair, yellow hair, and blue hair.
  • Supla, "Green Hair". The song qualifies more than the video (as a classic — in Portuguese — Accentuate the Negative analysis of it described: "He had already hired this stuff, and as she didn't have green hair, and wouldn't dye for this cheesy video, so she just painted a strand of it with crayon and a marker.")
  • In Bad Religion's "Struck a Nerve" video, there is a scene which shows some guy with, you guessed it, blue hair playing guitar while covered in some kind of tape.
  • Shakira went with purple hair in "Las de la Intuición / Pure Intuition".
  • Katy Perry in more than one.
  • Cherry from the animated band Studio Killers has turquoise hair- at least in the "Ode to the Bouncer" video. Subsequent fanart and videos show that she likes changing the color and style a lot, although the turquoise appears to be her default.

  • Nicki Minaj is probably the greatest rapper example of this, as you can see in Super Bass.
  • Vocaloid: let's see - Kaito & Miku have blue and blue-green hair, Iroha Nekomura & Luka have pink, Gakupo has purple, three characters (Gumi, Ryuto, and Sonika) have green hair, Piko & Miriam have grey, and at least two versions of Leon depict him with blue or orange hair (though most give him normal blond hair). Miki also has very bright red hair. The Vocaloid3s continue this theme, with Ring having blue-white hair, Aoki having purplish-bluish-white hair, CUL having bright red hair, Yukari and Tone having purple, and Akikoloid having pink. But Mayu and Galaco definitely take the cake: Mayu's is a normal blond that turns rainbow at the end, and Galaco has brown on one side, blond on the other side, and bangs that are red, yellow, and blue.

  • In the video for her duet with Tony Bennett of "The Lady Is a Tramp", Lady Gaga looks more normal than usual...but with blue hair.
  • Paramore's Hayley Williams' most iconic look includes bright red (not the natural hair color version) hair with blond highlights. She's also had blonde, green, green-with-orange-streaks, blue, pink, orange-and-pink, and currently has silver-white hair.
  • The Joe Iconis song "Blue Hair" (performed here by Krysta Rodriguez) is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: a song about a girl wanting to dye her hair blue to catch a boy's eye.
  • Sodagreen's lead vocalist Qingfeng has had his hair dyed green, pink, bright red and blonde over the years.

  • T.O.P. of Big Bang had blue hair during the production of the music videos for "Fantastic Baby", "Blue", "Bad Boy" and pink hair in "FXXK IT" where Daesung had blue hair, while G-dragon altered his hair style and color repeatedly over the same videos, sometimes multiple times within the same video.
  • Holland has already had several colours within a year after he debuted.
  • Christina Grimmie was known to experiment with hair colors from time to time.
  • Elton John, during the earlier years of his glam period, often dyed his hair in striking bright orange, and reputedly blamed his premature baldness later in The '70s to an accident involving hair dye.
