Emo Hair StylesHow to get Emo Hair & Emo Hair Ideas
Emo means a lot of different things to different people, but basically it describes a sub-genre of punk, that incorporates a particular style of fashion and music. Emo hair styles can be varied, but they all incorporated three basic elements:
♥ Black - true Emo hair styles start from a basic deep black colouring. Very few people have truly black hair, so this is usually a dyed in colour, which can also be combined with streaks and sections of other colours, from natural lowlights/highlights to vivid punk type colours like neon pinks and electric blues.
♥ Asymmetrical - Emo haircuts are typically asymmetrical, with choppy, sharply cut layers. This allows people to be imaginative and original with their hair styling, and creates looks that are at once well groomed, trendy and wild
Straight - Emo hair styles begin with dead straight, sleek hair, which can only really be achieved with modern straightening irons and hair serums. Spiky hair is popular in Emo styles as well, but these are typically trendy, sleek spikes rather than random messy spikes of punk styles.
Emo hair styles encourage people to experiment with the shape of their hair from the cut right through to the accessories, and can be a fun way to individualise your personal look. Clips, grips and hair bands can be used to accentuate and create various shapes, and colour can be added in blocks or streaks to create volume and texture. Emo hairstyles can be any length, and can easily be created at home, although it might be a good idea to get the basic cut done by a professional to get those really sharp, razored-in layers. There are no particular rules when it comes to cutting the hair for Emo styles, just get inventive with choppy layers and fringes, but whatever length you have these styles are normally longer at the front to cover and frame the face.
