    Choosing Trendy Over Natural Beauty is Always a Mistake

    Today I happened across an article at fellow Glamer StyleGuru on Emo Hair Styles. As I looked through the Emo Hair Style Gallery I couldn’t help noticing how unattractive most of the Emo hair styles were.
    “Emo Hair Styles are Usually a Mistake”
    A hairdresser cringes when an attractive female with a great face shape and wonderful hair to work with comes in to the hair salon and asks for a trendy hair cut that is bound to make her look less attractive. This is almost always a beauty faux paus and is a complete waste of natural beauty.

    Yet generation after generation of women fall for naturally unattractive styles only to look trendy or fashionable. In the 60’s we had the beehive look that was hideous on almost everybody except the tiniest segment. Then we had the back-combed look of the 70’s and 80’s that looked stupid and tortured the hair. In the 90’s we had punk, then the Goth look and now Emo hair styles.

    Classic beauties become classics by maximizing every natural beauty asset and never ever compromising attractiveness for style. Whenever you’re about to opt for a stylish look ask yourself: Do I want to be a classic beauty or just another yawner with this weeks hot, but ugly hairstyle.

    1. First expressing yourself in a creative way is not a mistake.
      Looking super conservative is boring.
      I am a hairstylist for over 20 years and I have NEVER
      Ever not been pleased with a new client
      Or existing client that wants to have fun with their look.
      Hair should be an assesory to your looks.
      It grows have fun with it.

    3. I love the emo hairstyles, but i have very coarse, thick wavey hair, and it’s hard for me to find an emo style that would look good. It takes me about an hour and 15minutes to straighten my hair…anybody have any ideas??

    7. hi. well, personally. i kinda agree with you, and i kinda dont. while some people i think should totally not get these hairstyles, some would look really good in them. though there are a few that would look bad on most people, like the hairstyle at the top. but most are amazing, paired with great faceshapes. like… hayley williams dor example. while her new cut is kinda more toned down but still original i am talking about her old hairstyle, only she could pull it off, but it was wonderful. and i think this is an extremely biased post by the way. though i do i agree that some people should never get an emo cut.

    8. ALL emo hairstyles look like those examples. Buncha BS. Im gettin my emo cut next week and im looking for the perfect pic. i know my face shape and what looks good, thank u.
      Besides… everyone knows hair grows right?
      Why should one “compromise” his/her right to experiment with looks just to please a stylist or seem “attractive” to others?
