Emo HairstylesEmo haircuts are related to the punk hairstyles of the eighties and vary depending on the person that is wearing it. Emo is a short term for "emotional" and this is the origin for these unique hairdos. Hairstyles which reflect the personal style and emotions of the wearer can be considered emo.
Emo hairstyles have bright and deep colors, often with highlights in unusual shades and in strong contrast with the rest of the hair. Most emo boys and girls have black or dark brown hair, highlighted with vibrant tones. Emo girls often have white, purple or even blue hair.

The style always reflects the personality of the wearer and that explains why there is so much diversity in emo hairstyles and why it is so difficult to describe what an emo haircut is and to explain how to style your hair for an emo look.
