1. Bright streaks

Create contrast on your black hair by choosing vivid colors that stand out. Bright pink is an excellent choice, and so is green, blue, and other bold highlights. If you’re the artsy kind of gal, then this ‘do is for you.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair from getting dry without destroying your highlights by washing hair with Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner.

2. Dark red

A deep, red hue also helps exude an emo vibe. Burgundy shades even suit everyone, whether you have pale complexion or morena skin. Complement your hair with a wine-hued lipstick and a leather jacket. Your emo look is now complete.

Editor’s tip: Add bounce to colored hair by applying TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your locks before blow drying.

3. Choppy bob

Surprise your friends (and yourself!) with an edgy choppy bob. The layers instantly add texture to your hair, so this haircut suits you if you have thin and flat locks.

Editor’s tip: Make your layers more defined by spritzing TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms and scrunching through the tips of your hair.

4. Bob in a bonnet

Havin’ a bad hair day? You can still have short emo hair by wearing a bonnet. Position the bonnet around two to three centimeters in front of your hairline, just enough to cover your ears. With only the lower half of your hair showing, nobody will know about your uncooperative tresses.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair soft, bouncy, and smelling fresh with DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner

5. Messy half updo

Style your hair without looking like you styled it with this ‘do. Simply finger-comb your hair and tie the upper half using an elastic. You don’t have to worry about strands that are not in place–make these part of your hairstyle. You can even pull some hair tendrils and let these frame your face to add to that chic, laidback vibe.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to nail and define your messy look.
