The Right Hair Products For Emo Hair

Emo hair is a type of hairstyle in which the bangs are worn long and swept to one side. The entire cut is in long layers and uses products to give it a very textured and disheveled appearance.

For fine hair you'll want to be careful not to use too heavy a product. Though emo hair does sport a “greasy” look to it you don't want to go overboard either. Try a styling wax such as American Crew's Classic wax. Place a dime sized amount in the palm of your hand and apply it to damp hair. Blow dry the hair with your fingers for that messy look, making sure to sweep your long bangs over to one side. Don't forget to blow dry the hair in the back out and spiky by pulling it straight out from your head with your fingers and position the blow drier under you hair and point up. When your hair is dry take another dime sized amount of the wax and distribute it through your dry hair. Put your style into place with your fingers and be sure to coat the bangs and back well. To spike the top you may need to use a firm hold hair spray to make it stick in place.

For thick hair style the same way but move up to a more heavy duty styling product. Try the American Crew Pomade which will have more styling power against thicker textured hair.
