Female emo hairstyles come in many different variations, but all are characterised by the "emo sweep," a fringed bang combed and hair-sprayed to one side of the head over one eye. Emo hair styles typically emphasise the woman's eyes, so make-up is applied to emphasise the eyes rather than the lips.

Emo Mullets

According to the Emo Hairstyles website, the short emo mullet hairstyle is one of the most popular emo hairstyles for both males and females.

This emo hairstyle is characterised by a long strand of hair in the back that is pulled over and sprayed to one side, similar to a comb-over effect in the front.

In a modern emo mullet, the hair is cut in a shag layered style with the front being cut much shorter than the back. For a reverse modern mullet, the hair is long over the front and short in the back.

Emo Bob

Like the Emo mullet hair styles, the emo bob comes in many variations. Long and short bob haircuts are layered and fringed with the fringe falling across one eye in the typical emo peek-a-boo style. Emo bob haircuts are usually longer in the front and shorter in the back and can be razored in the back for emphasis.

Emo Shag

Emo shag hair styles are identified by long layered cuts all around the head and the typical "emo sweep." The hair on the top of the head is normally styled with gel or wax, with the long pieces going straight down; however, this varies from person to person, with some girls preferring to style all the hair stick-straight.

Emo Razor Styles

Emo razor hair styles are cut by a razor as opposed to scissors to give the hair a chopped chunky. Emo razor hairstyles use gel or pomade to style the hair in spiked chunks and arrange the layers around the head.

Emo Hair Style Colors

Traditionally, most emo hair styles were dyed coal-black. However, according to the Love to Know Hair website, a newer trend is to use vibrant contrasting colours, such as blond and black, in emo- girl hairstyles. Other common colours in emo female hairstyles are red and deep orange. Using bright, vivid colours can set off the different layers of an emo hairstyle.
