The Emo subculture has been around for quite awhile, existing mainly in an underground setting at first, then emerging into more of a mainstream genre based around Emo music. Though there are Emo followers of all ages, it has mostly been young people who have taken to the Emo subculture, some get more in-depth with it than others. As a result of this, girls who dress in Emo clothing, otherwise known as Emo girls, have become popular with a lot of men.
To understand exactly what makes an Emo girl an Emo girl, you need to know that in terms of finding an Emo girl on the internet, it is all about how she looks. While some Emo girls may not agree with this, any girl who looks the part of someone who is engaged in the Emo subculture is going to be considered Emo. The question then becomes, “How does a girl’s appearance make her Emo?” This can be broken down into a few different categories: clothing, hairstyle, and body art.
While there are many different types of Emo styles, one of the most universal parts of Emo style and Emo clothing is the color black. This is because black is supposed to convey a certain darkness or sadness that some Emo people find comforting. For others, the black just represents what everyone else thinks that an Emo person is, and it adds to the stereotype that an Emo person is someone decidedly different than the rest of society.
You can find Emo clothing in all sorts of different online and brick and mortar retailers. It also comes in a wide variety of different styles. Some Emo girls may elect to wear t-shirts with a metal or Emo band name on them to show their support, while some may wear what any non-Emo girl would wear, meaning you can only tell that they are Emo by some other way, either by their hair or what they have on their body.
There really is no hard and fast rule to determine what kind of clothes would fall into an Emo style, since a normal tank top can be worn by almost anyone. Clothing that is specifically made for Emos does start to become apparent until you really start to look at the words or designs on them. A shirt with an Emo band on it would almost definitely fall into an Emo style, whereas a pair of jeans which are tight fitting may or may not be considered Emo, depending on what the person who is wearing them has going on with the rest of their body and clothing.
Emo girls who do not have naturally black hair may try to either dye their hair black, or perhaps a very bold color like red or blue. In some cases, instead of dyeing their hair completely to a different color, the girl may elect to just do highlights or tips of a certain color. What they choose is usually not something you would see in mainstream society, which is another way that Emo girls differentiate themselves from everyone else.
The Emo hairstyle itself differs from person to person. Some Emo girls prefer to have long bangs which is common in Emo guys. However, there are some girls go all out and do crazy things with their hair, putting it in spikes, and making crazy up-dos with it in order to stand out and be different.
Girls with Emo hairstyles may also accessorize their hair with Emo hair accessories. These accessories can run the gamut from simple bows to ribbons that reach down well past the length of the hair itself. These individual bows might be there to help support the hairstyle so that it doesn’t fall down, or they can be used as a way of showing other people that they are part of the Emo subculture.
Emo Body Art
Emo girls seem to have an abundance of tattoos, especially in areas which are visible when they are wearing their Emo clothing. Some of the most popular kinds of Emo tattoos are ones where a quote is either incorporated into the design, or the entire tattoo is made up of the quote. There really isn’t a limit on how many tattoos or what kind of different tattoos an Emo girl might have. Usually, girls who are deep into the Emo scene won’t just have one if they have any at all, they’ll have a multitude of them. If you bring up the subject of tattoos with an Emo girl, chances are, she won’ t stop talking for a long time, describing what her tattoos are, and what they all mean.
When it comes to Emo makeup, the color black is used heavily again, just as it is with clothing and hair. A common sight is black eyeliner and eye shadow, sometimes, this is all put against a powder white foundation. The contrast between the two colors draws people’s attention to the black, and for men who are into Emo girls, it enhances their attractiveness to them, since a lot of Emo girls won’t go as far as to put on white makeup to make themselves look fairer.
Emo piercings are very popular on Emo girls. These piercings go far beyond normal ear piercings and belly button rings. An Emo girl might have several studs in their upper lip, through their nose, on the top of their ears, or they may have large rings in their ear lobes which actually stretch out the skin.
Emo girls who are proud of their association with the Emo subculture will undoubtedly make some sort of outward gesture to show everyone else that they are Emo. Depending on the girl, this could range from something relatively subdued, such as a haircut focusing heavily on the bangs and a band t-shirt, to a complete Emo makeover. Emo girls have the potential to be incredibly attractive depending on how they take care of themselves, and how much attention they pay to their appearance.
