1. Cut Your Hair
For a proper emo hairstyle; you will need heavy flicks that come down to your eyebrows. Ask your hairstyle to use razor comb (for straight hair ends) and thin out your hair at bottom (as all emo hairdos have volume on top and they thin out at the end).
2. Pick Out Hairstyle
You could choose the ones given by us or search online for the styles you like. See which one would look good on your face. Different emo hairstyles look better on different contours of face.
3. Dye Your Hair
This step is optional. If you are looking to funk up your hairdo then you could run streaks or highlights through your strands. Colour your hair at a salon if you’ve never had it dyed before. Or you could colour it temporarily with hair gel, chalk etc.
4. Tease Your Hair
Usually an emo hairstyle needs the top or back of your hair to be backcombed (teased), whereas the lower region of your hair remains straight. Select a top segment of your hair and tease it with a fine toothed comb. Keep applying hairspray to keep teased section in position.
5. Straighten Lower Portion Of Hair
To get the bottom part of your hair silky and thin use a straightener. If you have voluminous hair use a high quality straightener. Be careful to spray your hair with heat protectant before straightening, to inhibit the damage caused due to the heat. Segment out your hair with clips and gradually work through each segment.
6. Now that all the teasing, dyeing and straightening is done. Just get styling as per the hairdos mentioned.
