39. White Emo Boys Haircut

Heavy layered hair provides extra thickness and texture which is why I recommend layers for people with medium thick hair. Most of the hair on the side is swept to the back and front. The top part is full and swept to the side, giving an illusion of bangs.

47. Electric Blue Emo Hairstyle

Wanna rock this bright hair? The major work here is getting the hair color right. If you've successfully achieved that, all you need to do is keep straightening your hair with a flat iron and trimming the front section to keep the bangs scanty when your hair grows out.

Purple is such an amazing color that goes well with any outfit. Ever seen a combination of purple and grey? It's a great color combo for purple lovers. No wonder the hair looks so good paired with the grey hoodie.

50. Rainbow Emo Haircuts

The colors used to create this emo hair makes it pop in a good way. The best thing about getting colorful emo hair is that you can get away with any colored makeup you choose to pair it with. That's a big flex.

51. Touch of Purple On Sky Blue

This is an amazing emo hair inspiration for a soft emo boy. Here, most of the hair is swept to the front, giving it the full bangs look of most emo styles. I suggest using less or more hair to get asymmetrical bangs.
