5 Hair Dye Tips for a Great Emo Haircut

If you're considering dying your own hair, we've got some important tips for you. Chances are that if you've ever considered a do-it-yourself emo haircut you'll have at least considered dying your hair on your own. For a start, it's cheaper than having someone else do it for you, and you don't have a lot of spare cash, right?

Emo hair can mean all sorts of outrageous colors but I'm going to let you in on a tip: Most of the photos you see of guys and girls with pink highlights on the emo haircuts galleries are professional models. That means someone did their hair and makeup.

Think you can do a better job than the pros? You probably don't need this guide then, but on the off chance that it might save you from a disastrous haircut, let's visit our top 5 do-or-dye rules for great emo hair.

Tip #1: IF you're considering a bold, standout color or going more than 3 shades lighter, spend the money and go to a salon.

It's either that or run the risk of orange hair. Hey, maybe you can work with it anyhow, but take my word for it on this one.

Tip #2: If you do screw it up, don't try to fix it yourself.

If you really screw up, don't be tempted to "fix" it. Again, seek the guidance of a professional.

Or, you could do a Britney and shave the lot. Always a good look, especially on a female.

Tip #3: Do an Allergy test first.

Before you dye your hair, ensure that you're not going to react to the dye. Many hair dyes contain harsh chemicals that can react badly with your skin.

Did you want bright red skin to go with your bright red emo hairstyle?


Tip #4: Do a strand test second.

Before you start applying dye, you want to make sure that the result you'll get is what you're expecting. This means you need to take a strand of hair and apply a small amount of dye to it, leave it on for as long as you're planning to leave the dye when you do the main job, and see what happens.

Emo haircuts can be any color you like, but you'll probably want to minimize surprises.

Finally, Tip #5: Read the directions!

Many a botched dye job could have been avoided by reading the directions on the package. To be sure, read it twice. Don't assume that you know better than the manufacturer.

Almost as important is reading the directions is to actually follow the directions!. Do that, and you probably end up with a great, home-brewed emo haircut that's the envy of all your friends...

People hate your emo haircut?

I've said it before, I never cease to be amazed at the level of hatred or ridicule that can be directed at someone simply because they look emo, or have an emo haircut that's a little unusual. Isn't it sad when your personal style, taste in music or even the people you hang out with can cause you to be the target of so much direct anger?

If you "hate" emo, you've only got to look around youtube for a moment to find stuff like this:

You can be pretty sure that when someone goes to the time and effort to put together a video about how much they hate emo hairstyles, what they're really saying is this:

"Hey, I don't have any way to express myself that I'm comfortable with, and it's a hell of a lot easier to hate someone who does than step outside my own comfort zone and be myself"

It's an awful lot easier to tear something down than to face our own insecurities. Celebrate your personal style. You are not your haircut.

And that's what's so awesome about emo haircuts - no matter which side of the fence someone falls on, they're bound to cause a stir one way or the other. Whether you're trying to impress or trying to piss someone off, a great (or even an awful) emo haircut is a sure fire way to have some sort of impact.

And let's face it, when you're feeling mad as hell at the world, who wants to be a conformist? No way. So color your hair. Go crazy chopping bits out and spiking it up with wax, gel and glue.

Get any of the endless styles of emo haircuts, and one thing's for sure. Apart from being noticed, you can be sure that people are anything but indifferent about it.
