# How to change the LabelStyle only for one axis?

I want to modify the style of just one axis, but I'm stuck with something like

Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3}, LabelStyle -> Red]


which of course modifies both axes. How do I solve this problem?

Look up AxesStyle and TickStyle – Mike Honeychurch Jul 30 '13 at 23:10

I suspect this must be a duplicate but depending on what features you want to alter (just label, label and ticks etc) you might have to use combinations of AxesStyle and TickStyle and so on but here is a quick example:

Plot[x x, {x, 0, 3},
AxesStyle -> {Black, Directive[Black, FontColor -> Red]}]

Just as a small addition to the answer of Mike Honeyhurch, if you need to not only change the color, but also some other ticks properties, try this:

Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3},
TicksStyle -> {Black, Directive[Red, FontSize -> 14, Italic]}]
