Growing The Hair
If one is beginning with very short hair, this itself is the main task that requires mammoth patience. Why? Because, hair growth is extremely slow. Scientifically speaking, our hair grows about an inch (max) per month. And, to get the emo look, firstly, you need to grow your hair. I mean just don’t go to the barber for two or three months and in the meanwhile, brush your hair in the downward direction as you would want it to be that way
And once your hair has grown long enough, ideally, a fringe up to the nostrils; straighten it. But hey, keep in mind, it will probably take about a year to completely grow out the hair so that it takes on the Emo style.
Straightening To Style It.
You have to take special care of straightening if your hair is wavy or curly. You can do it at home with a straightener or go to the stylist and have him do it for you.
If you want to do it at home, make sure you start straightening along the sides, don’t forget to comb along the downward direction as you are straightening it. And remember that frequent trips to the salon for thinning and guiding the fringe may become necessary.
The hair is done, style it to a side part or however you want. Do check out the different emo hairstyles below that you can take any day soon.
