Emo Long Haircuts for Girls
Emo which is an abbreviation for the word emotional is just what the hairstyle is – an uneven, unpredictable hair style where no two hair strands are of equal length and in harmony with each other. Instead, it represents a chaotic mass of hair which actually requires a lot of skillful use of scissors to execute.
The emo look, as per the style dictionary, is characterized by uneven hair cut in layers with bangs in front which are kept in a long sweep cutting across the top of the face and partially concealing one eye. This look can be part of the shaggy or edgy haircuts.
The shaggy haircut consists of the hair cut in layers where the layers frame the face and maybe of long, medium or short length. The emo look in the shaggy haircut is characterized by uneven bangs in front which fall in a long sweep in front of the face and can be side swept as well. The emo look in long hair as is seen below, is characterized by long, tapered ends which are highlighted in alternate shades of grey to add a look of punk in the hairstyle.
The emo haircut for long hairs is often characterized by highlighted and coloured strands, often in contrasting and bright hues. As seen in the emo haircut below, the upper strands are coloured in a blonde shade while the tapered ends are highlighted in bright shades. As you can see, the emo haircut compliments the punk style of fashion and the hip hop or grunge trend. Hence, this look is flaunted by young individuals who believe in such fashion statements.
And then the bangs. Bangs are a significant feature of an emo haircut. It combines well with the shaggy or edgy long haircuts and help to accentuate the emo haircut. As seen here, the bangs are cut diagonally across the forehead
