It is true that most people have a very narrow mind regarding the definition of emo! As Emo Hairstyles defines it, it's hard to define and I agree that it doesn't exactly exist either. It can mean a large number of things, and subsequently, different things for different people, depending on what they are doing to maintain their emo style. Emo can be a way of life, or simply a style adpoted every now and then, or simply refered to as a style of music that was only recorded on vinyl with very limited number of people actually getting one (that was in the past however, you may now regard emo as something completely different).
By the way, you might want to check out the new Emo Hair blog on the emo hairstyles we are partners with! They have updated a live Flickr RSS stream of photos of emo girls and emo boys with emo hairstyles, emo haircuts and whatnot! I've also attached a few photos that would be displayed on the emo stream to this post!

The mullet hairstyle started in the early 19th century; nowadays, a lot of people refer to it as emo hairstyle and therefore a lot of people still wear it. The peak of its popularityw as in 1970 when the rock artist David Bowie wore the haircut at his Diamond Dogs and Ziggy Stardust phases.
Even Billy Ray Cyrus, wore the haircut in 1990s which became once again popular with his song, "Achy Breaky"!
The mullet or emo mullet as others call it can be split into a number of types: Skullet, Frullet, Tropical Mullet, Jheri Curl Mullet, Momullet, Chullet, Mulldina and Fem Mullet.
The most common emo hairstyle to me, regarding mullet hairstyles is the Skullet; a variation is shown in the picture. It's basically bald head with a longer hair on the sides an the back - it's nowhere near as popular nowadays and in fact very few people still wear it!

Emo is not only defined by the emo hairstyles but also by the emo fashion, that is the clothes and jewels they wear. Most emo would wear black clothing, jacket that is usually small for them or very tight jeans.
The emo fashion has evolved from its early days - now emos wear different colour hair, other than plain black. Highlights are getting more and more common in girls and all kind of comb overs are getting more popular in boys of all ages. Emo hairstyles are now more popular than ever - the results of popular bands such as Green Day adopting this hairstyle.
In girls, the hair is more vivid and usually very colourful, depending on the type of emo haircuts aimed for. Of course, you can have multi colored hair or plain with highlights, short or long, etc. All these can be classified as emo hairstyles as the only thing that defines an emo hairstyle is its style! Its colour or length does not matter at all - it's how it's presented, cut and coloured.
A high diversity has therefore evolved amongst emos as emo hairstyles are so easy to achieve.

You can either dye your hair or just leave it as it is - if it looks pretty; if you insist on dyeing it I suggest either white blonde or dark dye. You will also need a straightener for most emo hairstyles but not all. So if you haven't got one, there is nothing to worry about.
Next step is to get side bangs, especially for a girl. You can cut it yourself or solicit the advice of a hair stylist, either way don't worry too much about it - remember that emo hairstyles are all about individuality.
For a cool emo haircuts you won't need much. If you decide you will let your friend or you cut your hair yourself, a pair of scissors, some dye, highlights and that's all that is necessary. Sure you can have razors or other stuff but it's all optional to getting emo hairstyles.

I would improve this short mullet emo hairstyles by adding some highlights, maybe white blonde or simply green/ purple streaks if you want to appear more dark.
The alternative would be to completely dye it white blonde and apply some other highlights that would suit a white blonde hair, maybe pink or red/ orange. It's your choice afterall as I said emo hairstyles are individual and personal

The comb over has been popular for a long time and still is for both girls and boys. This type of emo hairstyles is more prominent in boys than in girls. The picture below illustrates how easy it is to achieve such a haircut which is basically just a comb over to the left or right, whichever side you prefer.
You will need hair extensions if you want to make this look really pro and may consists of a straigh fringe above the eyes and the hair extensions dyed in a black/ dark colour. To achieve this type of emo hairstyles you can use any other colour than black or dark such as white blonde or brunette.

The emo or emotional punk movement belongs to its own attitude as I have previously said numerous times! The values are put on fashion, emo hairstyles and personality. With this type of hairstyle, everything goes - some women may dye their hair purely black, however others will want to dye theirs white or purple.
The aim of dyeing the hair a certain colour is to achieve that bold effect, be it black or bold white. The best part about it is that all emo hairstyles are artificially dyed so there is no need to conern about it looking natural as in most cases it won't. Sure there are some expensive dyes that will work hard at restoring the natural look and make your hair look naturally coloured but in my opinion it is not really worth it. Having emo hairstyles is all about personality and freedom.

One of the emo hairstyles for girls and boys in particular . The looks consist of similar long bangs to the comb-over approach. The difference being the back of the hair which exposesa long tail dragged to one side of thehead most commonly. For example, if the bangs are combed over to the right side of the face, the tail would most typically be cut on the left side of the head.
Comb Over for Girls and Guys
The comb over or most recently called 'scene hair' has been adopted by the popular bands at the moment such as 'Green Day' and 'My Chemical Romance' .
The emo hairstyles for girls consists of a straight fringe slightly above the eyes and reasonably long hair extenstions dyed usually black but other lighter colours are also acceptable, such as white blonde.
