Emo hairstyles for guys - Tips
If you cant decide on a new look, why not just go for the one of the more common Emo hairstyles such as the razor cut, the mullet, the bowl cut, the bob, a side sweep, and long layers.
Emo hairstyles for guys are normally based on straight hair. A flat iron or chemical relaxer is needed for straight hair. If using a flat iron, straighten a small section at a time and use hair clips to divide sections. Leave the top of the head for last. Work from the bottom of the hair to the middle. Use conditioner, hot oil or similar product to prepare hair for heat. Keep the hair appliance on the middle heat setting. At a salon, relaxing can cost over $100, and require a couple of hours. Hair should be long enough for an angled cut after a relaxer.
Side bangs should be cut into layers, but should be long and not too thin. The objective is to frame your face with your hair.
Chop bangs into layers and points. Create bang fringe by cutting from left to right diagonally across the forehead, or cut straight across. End fringe at eyes or brows, below the eye, or past the forehead. Just remember to experiment and be inventive.
Accessories can enhance your style. Creating highlights in your hair and accessories can add style flair. Try dyes, extensions and weaves and maybe add temporary or permanent hair colour. The creative canvas can be the crown, back, bangs, or sides of hair.
