- Step 1
Determine if the length of your hair is conducive to a long or short hairstyle. Notice that most emo girls either have medium length hair or short hair above the shoulders.
- Step 2
Decide on a new hair color; drastic change is best when it comes to emo styles so pick something that is in opposition to your current hairstyle. Visit your local hair care shop and pick up a drastically different color. Black and blond mixed are favorites of emo girls.
- Step 3
Dye your hair or add a large section of highlights to a section of your hair to create a contrasting variation. Add the color to the front of the head as this is typical protocol for emo and scene kids. Black hair and blond bangs or vice versa is a popular choice for emo girls.
- Step 4
Part your hair on the side just beyond the eyebrow and swoop the bangs over one eye to create the signature emo look. The point is to look sufficiently affected and sad so bangs add a bit of drama to an otherwise normal looking hairstyle. Layer your hair to create a romantic style; longer in the back and shorter in the front or longer in the front and short in the back are typical layering techniques used by emo girls.
- Step 5
- Style your hair on a daily basis. Curling your hair to create a wave in the back while having straight bangs is very emo and using a straightening iron to create a straight and sleek look on the rest. Consider using hair accessories like black barrettes or headbands, bangs out of course, to create a finished look.
