Emo Hairstyles

Emo HairDo you have Emo hair? Also called scene hair, the Emo hairstyle has been around since the 1990’s though it seems to be getting a lot of press lately. Sprung from the depths of “emotive hardcore” music, this once non-conformist, individualistic and original, “doing my own thing” hairstyle is sure becoming popular with the masses. Once considered a somewhat negative term, Emo hairstyles are now being embraced by trendy girls and guys alike. It’s now long hair or short, black hair or blonde and everything in between. Did Emo hairstyles get too cool and become the norm? Maybe.

One of my favorite definitions of the Emo hairstyle comes from Urban Dictionary.com:

“genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who don’t smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarves (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle.”

Though that doesn’t entirely sum up the entire genre (it really just sounds like High School to me) this video montage will help put things in perspective. Emo hair might just mean teenage angst meets flat iron plus hairspray. The one common thread in all of these styles is a super uneven choppy haircut and super sleek strands usually sprayed into oblivion. (For more help with tools, check out our best flat irons section.)

I’m sure you’ve seen the Emo hairstyle emerging, it’s actually quite cool, though now that I’ve blogged about it, it just became more mainstream.
