The cut
Both emo and scene hairstyles are known for their jagged appearance, styled with different layers and cuts. The cut should have uneven proportions but with a nice shape to it. It should look good, even if it's misshapen. Using a razor comb is a good way to achieve this appearance. Classic emo hair is straight. IF you have curly hair, you might try straightening it with a hair straightener. This is best for showing the layers and textures.
