Emo hair is a collection of variations of the angular, backward mullet, (esotericaly known as the "hypotenuse"). Emo hair style is also known as the "Swoosh," and should deliberately be associated with the slang adjective "Swish." Almost always black (dyed or natural), emo hair has the unique ablility to make its adherents brain-damaged to the point where they believe looking like others constitutes being unique.
A squared plus B squared equals the C squared hypotenuse of all those emo-clones' emo hair.

emo hair is an entry on urban dictionary in which a lot of "emo" kids show their ignorance and intolerance of other people=) The phrase "I want to be an individual... just like everybody else I want to be like" springs to mind.
"Hey those emo kids have identical emo hair, I wish I was that nonconformist"

A fairly gender-neutral hairstyle in which the hair is worn straight(ened)and reasonably short with a long bang/fringe, often swept dramatically to one side. The hair on the back of the head is sometimes cut shorter for a more aggressively stylish look, and in this case is often mussed or spiked with product. The hair may be dyed or natural; if dyed, the preferred color is usually black or red or both.

This style is most popular within the generation born in the late 80's; it is associated with 'emo' music and its cult following. This hairstyle is ideal for people of said cult following, since the long bang(s) have the following uses:

-they obscure the eyes, thus making the facial expressions less readable and so lending an air of glamorous mystery to the wearer
-this facial obstruction provides a sense of privacy to those less-social members of the emo movement
-they provide the wearer with an excuse to execute the "emo hair toss," which not only serves the practical function of clearing the hair from the eyes (if only for a tragically brief moment), but also, the motion itself is a way of expressing one's emo attitude

Emo hair is best worn with a tight black shirt, a victim mentality, and a warped genius. If you are already college-age and have emo hair, you had better be in a band. Otherwise, ditch it: you look immature and overly self-involved.

Emo music and its hair began as a method of self-expression (of deep and gut-wrenching despair and frustration, often) and self-differentiation from the masses. Unfortunately it has become little more than a fad followed by the shallow and the easily influenced.
Emo Boy1: My existence is agony. I think I'm going to go wash my hair and then post pictures on MySpace.
Emo Boy2: Shut the fuck up, poser. You only turned emo when it went mainstream. You don't know what agony is.
Emo Girl: OMG their emo hair is so hot! If I can't date someone with emo hair, I'll cut myself!
Emo Girl2: *emo hair toss*

Emo hair is usually dyed black. Sometimes red works too. It has bangs cut straight along the forhead (covering one eye). Greasy//messy. Spiked up in the back. Long bleached blond hair often works for girls and can also be emo. As would be the mop top.
Whoa; look at that emo boy flip his hair over his eyes!
