Going asymmetrical (short on one side and long on the other) is yet another way to go Emo with your hair, but the spiky/jagged ends look is just as popular with youngsters. To keep the spiky look, generous use of gel on wet hair followed by hairspray (for holding the style) is called for - and voila! There's a whole new you - with just a bit of experimenting.
For a fashionable yet unfussy Emo hairstyle, you can opt for a lift at the crown and get your hair swept up and back, pinned to the side and leave stray strands to fall like a curtain. You can complete this asymmetrical look by letting one side of your hair be styled pointy and the other left straight and free falling.
Instead of adding bangs, you can also opt for streaking your hair or simply enhancing their color with a few highlights strategically divided between fringes or main cap of your hairstyle.
Choosing a wide range of dark to lighter shades or the other way round is a neat tip given by salon experts for people who are looking to go the Emo way. They suggest deep reds, blues and purples for highlights, a trendy styling technique or similar deep colors that allow the base coat to show through, especially if you are deciding between shaggy, uneven Emo style to your hair or keeping your natural hair-color and only adding dark tints to the smooth, ironed out Emo look.
To make your hair more pliable and set it according to Emo trends of your choice, dry shampoos available at the local chemist are a cheap and cheerful bet. So, get creative and express yourself with Emo hairstyles to fit every mood out there - all it requires is a little imagination and a dollop of attitude. (Oh yes, did we mention the hairspray?)
