Emo, or the
emotional punk movement, is a new craze among teens, and female
emo haircuts are seen everywhere. Many female emo haircuts are simple
to create and can be done at home with an ordinary pair of scissors.
Female emo haircuts
are typically dyed jet black, regardless of the wearer's natural
coloring. Although actual shaving is more common for Emo guys, Female
emo haircuts can include shaved or buzzed sections of the head,
and often are not straight, but are asymmetrical.
have a lot of skill and experience to create female emo haircuts.
In fact, the emo movement in general rejects conventional fashion
and everything that resembles "normalcy". Ironically,
emo's have created a fashion of their own, and the fact that some
styles can be identified as female emo haircuts is evidence of the
fact that there is indeed a sense of "trendiness" involved.
emo haircuts are blunt cuts. This can be done with a pair of regular
scissors. You needn't be too careful that your cut is straight,
since asymmetry is typical of many female emo haircuts. One idea
is to create bangs starting short at one end, and getting longer
toward the side in a diagonal line.
emo haircuts are perfectly straight and blunt, giving a hard look.
Use a ruler for these kinds of haircuts. Some haircuts are shaggy
around the ears, or the circle that is cut around the ear is exaggerated.
You might want to leave one side of the hair long and one side short,
drawing the long side into a ponytail. Basically, female emo haircuts
are limited only to one's imagination, and the more asymmetry the
emo haircuts are dyed black, but if you do not want to take such
a drastic step, you may consider, "reverse frosting" which
is to dye the ends of blond hair black. You may try other colors,
but emo, unlike many other punk movements, eschews bright colors
in favor of black.
go to a salon to have your hair dyed, since female emo haircuts
do not require a natural, professionally designed look. You can
simply dye your own hair at home. If you are just trying an emo
look out, you may want to use a temporary dye that will wash out
before going for a more permanent option.
While Emo male
haircuts are characterized by letting a large nest of hair droop
in front, these styles can also work as female emo hairstyles, since
emo is characterized by androgyny. You can shave the sides and the
back of your hair completely bald and leave a long tress at top
and front, dangling over your eyes, or you can go for a buzz cut
all around the head, leaving a long section at the top. You might
want to use a flat iron to make the top section completely straight,
or just let it hang.
If you have
a buzz around your head, you can create zigzags, grills or other
designs in it. Some female emo hairstyles involve leaving one side
of the hair long and buzzing the other side. As with all female
emo hairstyles, black is the color of choice. You can dye your hair
completely black, or leave the buzzed part your natural color and
dye the top black.
One thing to
remember about female emo haircuts is not to wash, style and brush
them too often. This will make your life easier, but is also meant
to express emo principles of rejecting stylishness and consciousness
of one's looks. Constant brushing would make female emo hairstyles
