Many emo hairstyles are difficult to create and maintain. If you don't have the time or the ability to create or care for such complex hairstyles, you can simply go for a short n straight hairstyle. A short and straight hairstyle is simply a very short hair cut that, with a few simple additions, can be considered emo. Adding a skull hairclip can be one way to make sure people know your haircut is emo. You can add a black bow to your hair for the same effect. Even a black headband can be effective. However, if you cut the edges of your hair sharply, this will also give your hair an emo look.
