1Platinum blonde fringe cut

This is snow white platinum blonde fringe cut. This cut has a choppy bang and long layers. The ends of the hair are slightly darker with neutral undertones. The ice white color makes it perfect for your dark red or black lipsticks and super black eyeliner.

2Long faux hawk with highlights

Here we have a dark faux hawk. The sides are pinned back for that Mohawk look while the front is shaped into a hump to create rocker style look. This hair has streaks of brown, blonde and purple. The all black clothing and leather jacket gives this an emo-rock look.

3Curly Mohawk

Continuing with the Mohawk style here is a super curly Mohawk. The big lush curls make this look super chic and the smokey eye makeup gives it the dark and vampy look. Use large hair rollers or pin curls to achieve these bouncy curls.

4Messy half up style

Don’t know what to do with your “bed hair”? Try this quick and easy half up and half down style. Add your favorite hair serum for added shine. Throw on a bold winged liner and a pale pink lip to make it look like you spent time getting ready.

5Puffy ponytail with Pompadour

Here we have a loose but structured ponytail. The roots are dark but transitions into a dirty platinum blonde color. The front is pinned into a small pompadour which makes this look perfect for any occasion. This style is easy to dress down with simple black studs like the ones pictured here or your favorite pair of diamond earrings.

6Slightly wavy short bang cut emo haircut

If you like bangs then try this bowl cut. It has bold bangs with light honey-colored highlights. You can also see the honey highlights underneath the blonde offering a slight pop of color. Get these loose waves by lightly scrunching your hair with a light hold mousse.

7Modern mullet with undercut

Who knew mullets could be so chic? Everything about this style is absolutely amazing. We love the jet black with hints of blue and teal. This look is edgy and sexy and looks amazing with dark and vampy looks. The undercut really kicks this look up a notch to make it a definite head turner.

8Angled bob with purple highlight

Tired of the boring brown and blonde highlights? Try layering these purple highlights over chestnut brown hair. Brown is a very neutral base opposed to black which makes the color pop even more. If your head is more of an oval shape then this angled cut will frame it perfectly.

9Tapered high cut

Here is the feminine version of the typical masculine fade cut. The cut is perfect for women with heart-shaped faces. The middle section is rolled and tucked with the ends loose creating a messy look.

10Simple blonde locks

Sometimes going simple is best. Take these simple blonde locks for example just a little curl to the end. This look goes from a dark root to a platinum blonde into a yellow blonde. These colors mesh together very well creating a light ombre effect.

11Tousled neck length cut – Easy hair styles

Here we have a neck length cut with barely there curls. This adds a little bit of texture so that the hair is not flat. The waves and bangs give the illusion of thicker fuller hair. You can also tease the crown for added volume.

12Brunette wavy bob

Here we have a blunt cut shoulder length bob. This is a very warm brown with red undertones and one of our favorite cute hairstyles for girls. This also has some honey and golden highlights. This style is very relaxed but with the right dress and heels can be totally red carpet ready.

13Half cut

This style is a bit different and has a boy cut on one side and long on the other side. We are used to seeing the fully shaved side but the fact that it’s not fully shaved makes it more original. This is a great length because you still able to do a full ponytail or full bun. We love how well the bang transition from short to long is in a swept motion.

14Spiked pixie cut

How beautiful is this pixie cut? We love how it’s spiked and the bang really shapes her face. We all know that grey has been in and it looks so stunning against the purple tone makeup. This style would look great on anyone because it can be shaped to frame any face shape.

15Choppy bob

Are you bold enough to wear this? This is a choppy multi-color bob. The roots are blonde then go into black and finally a vibrant purple. This is not your normal look and you will be sure to turn heads with it. Try this look with your favorite combination of colors.

16Ash blonde tapered cut

Nothing looks better on pale skin than an ash blonde color. This is a tapered cut with a section left out to act as whatever you want. You can wear it as a bang or you can curl it, braid it, or experiment with a new pop of color every week. This is perfect for women with more heart-shaped faces.

17Spiked boy cut with dark roots

Spikes can be chic and flattering so add a pop to your boring boy cut with spikes. We love how this is paired with a red lip and soft makeup. It really helps along with the blonde hair and dark roots to bring out her blue eyes.

18Grey Ombre bob

It is no secret that grey is definitely in and we don’t believe it’s going anywhere anytime soon. We totally adore this grey bob. It has dark black roots and hints of brown that give off a purple hue when put against the grey. You can get these soft curls by using sponge rollers because they have a weaker hold. Can we talk about this amazing makeup? We love the purple lip which looks like MAC’s heroine and the copper eyes.

19Soft pastels Scene Hairstyles

Emo does not always mean black. Many people who consider themselves emo wear pastel colors. One of the most popular choices is a pastel lilac color. We love how this scene hairstyle and color looks against a paler skin with a touch of bronze or pink. This color really brings out blue/grey eyes and makes an overall softer look. We also love how the intense eyeliner gives that “emo” look by adding a sexy touch of darkness to the look.

20Cotton candy scene hairstyle

We love the mix of hot pink, baby pink, orange and yellow tones. This is a very popular “emo” style the thick circular bang and long layers. This is definitely the best choice if you love color and being girly but also want that grunge look. Despite the crazy colors, this scene hairstyle can actually be worn with a very versatile wardrobe, then give this color and cut a try!
