Black with a Pop of Color

The added hair color could be blue, green, pink or others which will stand out from the pitch black strands. You could have your bangs dyed to another color while the rest stays black. Or you can also just pick a section of your hair to color.
Another characteristic that is common for the emo hairstyle is the bangs. Whether you are opting for a spiked, razor cut hair or one that is about chin length, do not forget to have your stylist cut your bangs. This is often done by trimming a thick section of the crown hair, such that the bangs can already cover half the forehead and one eye. It will just depend on your styling preference if you want your bangs to cover your eyes. Another way to do it is to slightly sweep the bangs towards the side to frame your temple and cheeks instead. The emo bangs is usually kept sleek and straight using hair wax or gel. The hair product will also hold it in place.
