Amanda's vivid violet hair caught our attention; her confidence kept it. Though she's only 18, she wears her bold, pixie-colored rock star look with conviction. We stopped her in downtown Ann Arbor to talk hair color, bell bottoms and Taylor Momsen.

How would you describe your personal style?
Comfy with a bit of grunge.

We love the purple hair — it's attention-grabbing. What kind of feedback do you get?
Mostly positive. A lot of kids come up to me in love with my hair. It's adorable. [I do get some] negative feedback from mostly older, old-fashioned people. I chose the color easily; it's my second favorite color.

What places do you like to shop locally?
Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, PacSun.  

What are some style trends that you absolutely hate?
'70s huge bell bottom jeans.

Where do you get your style inspiration?
Tumblr, Nylon magazine, Taylor Momsen, Effy from [the UK TV series] Skin, and the streets of downtown Ann Arbor.

What are your style aspirations?
My style is always changing, but always has the color black incorporated into it. I just take it day by day and change if I find something I think is lovely.
