Emo hair is a big deal, believe me, people search for â€œemo hairstylesâ€ all day long and Iâ€™ve got the statistics to prove it. Now, we've got an emo hairstyles gallery, and I've written a few things about emo hair styles. One thing that Iâ€™ve recently found out and I'd like to add to my previous definitions of â€œemoâ€ is this:
Â Emos are exceptionally sensitive about what the public (or anyone for that matter) says is â€œemo.â€ Futhermore, emos are incessantly fastidious- and some say obsessive- about the subtle differences between the various kinds of emo style. Apparently emos are highly skilled in the art of splitting hairs. Yet this is a skill that causes them undue distress and anger.
Don't believe me? Well check this out. All I need to do to incense an emo somewhere is say this: "Check out this example of an emo hair style":

Ouch, I can hear the emo rage in the ether right now. Sure, our modelâ€™s smiling and kind of happy, but Iâ€™d have to say that this is an emo style nevertheless, and if youâ€™re emo or you want to tune into your emotional side and start listening to Jared Leto and become emo, then consider a hairstyle like this.
It's a bob hairstyle, no doubt, but itâ€™s black and asymmetrical and covering the eyes and it's got random slices of red color throughout. Put this hair on a sad looking female in black skinny jeans and battered Chuck Taylors and take a photo of them walking down the street in some cafe-obsessed boho inner-city suburb and bam: you've got emo.
I'm defining this as emo hair, even though the model in her pretty dress doesnâ€™t look emo and probably isn't emo. But heck, who said you have to be something (like emo) in order to just subscribe to its style? No one.
