62 Stylish and Trendy Emo Hairstyles For Girls

by Sherri Owens

Some people might be cool with blending in with the crowd, but that wasn't my MO. I've always wanted to stand out in the best way possible. Let's just say emo hairstyles gave me a safe haven to do that.

My first emo hair was an emo haircut with full bangs. I toyed with that for a while by dyeing the bangs several colors. After that, I decided to grow out my hair and opted for my favorite emo hairstyle which is long black hair with long side swept bangs.

New emo hairstyles for girls are emerging, from bright-colored hair to darker ones. Here are 62 unique hairstyles for your next emo hair.

62 Emo Hairstyles For Girls

1. Shoulder Length Purple Hair

With an outfit that looks like she just stepped right out of a cosplay, this hair is absolutely alluring. The hair has a v-pattern at the front which focuses on the red gem on the forehead. This is a unique emo hairstyle that is versatile.

Most emo hairstyles these days involve braiding the ends of your hair. If you get bored of straight hair, you can decide to braid it for a different look.

2. Vamp Bangs Emo Hairstyles For Girls

Getting vamp bangs is a great way to show off your mysterious side. If you're getting this done, consider adding colors to the hairdo to tone down the spookiness of the hair a bit.

Black and purple always combine to create magic. The emo hair features heavy emo bangs that flow to one side. The first layer of the hair is jet black and spiky, while the second layer is straight and has stripes of black and purple that one can't help but be obsessed with.
