What Does E-girl Mean?

E-girls are a subculture originating from social medias like TikTok and Instagram. E-girls are often described as a hybrid of emo or punk girls that spend a lot of time online (‘e’ as in electronic).  

The e-girl aesthetic is often associated with anime and cosplay, identified by winged eyeliner, bright, heavy eyeshadow looks and (the main feature we’re talking about today), colourful e-girl hair streaks. 

How to Try E-Girl Hairstyles

Want to learn how to be an e-girl? Try the e-girl hair dye trend for yourself with Revolution’s range of semi-permanent hair colours!   

Step 1 – Choose Your E-Girl Hair Dye

Which e-girl hair dye you use depends on how long you want to rock the TikTok hair trend for.

1. The short-term commitment

The Revolution Rainbow Pastes are temporary hair colouring waxes that wash away in one wash. Choose from 6 vibrant shades.

2. I’m in it for the long run

I Heart Revolution Rainbow Tones are at-home semi-permanent hair colours that last at least 8 washes. Choose from a range of 13 colours, including red, blue, orange, green, pink, purple and silver.

3. The bleach-free options

The Revolution Hair Tones For Brunettes and Hair Tones For Blondes colour and condition in 1 easy step, leaving hair vibrant and glossy for up to 12 washes.

Step 2 – Part and Section Your Hair

To create your e-girl hairstyle, part your hair down the middle, brush forward a section of hair on either side of the parting (from the ear to the top of the crown), then tie back the rest of your hair. To stay true to the trend, the front sections should be between 1 and 2 inches wide. 

Step 3 – Dye Your Hair

This is the fun part! Apply the colour to your face-framing sections, making sure to follow the directions that came with your e-girl hair dye. You can opt for any colour, just make sure that it really stands out against your natural hair. Remember – the bolder, the better!

Now you know how to colour your e-girl streaks, you just need to choose which e-girl hairstyle to go for. These are just some of our favourite e-girl aesthetic looks. 

Chunky E-Girl Hair Streaks

Remember what we said earlier about dying 1 to 2 inch-streaks for your e-girl aesthetic? That’s only a guide, so feel free to make your face-framing front sections as chunky as you like. We love @kateelisabethxo’s barbie pink chunky e-girl hair streaks.

Dainty E-Girl Hair Streaks

Or, you could go the opposite way and make your e-girl hair streaks as thin as possible. @rachelteetyle frames her face with lightened micro-streaks that contrast perfectly with her dark locks.

We told you e-girl hair was all about self-expression! Be a rule breaker and flaunt a single colourful strand like @sandrabulldock. Her pink streak is a super cute take on this e-girl hairstyle.

E-Girl Aesthetic Peekaboo Streaks

Channel those nineties vibes with peekaboo streaks. To achieve this e-girl aesthetic, instead of colouring the front section of your hair, dye a small section of hair from the nape of the neck, just below the ear, on either side of your head.

Two-Toned E-Girl Hair Streaks

Who says the front streaks have to be the same shade? Use a different e-girl hair dye on each section to create a two-toned effect. It’s fun and playful – and we’re so here for it!

Two-Toned E-Girl Hair

Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to just the front sections of your tresses. Your hair is your canvas, so embrace your inner artist and completely dye each side of your head a bold and vibrant colour to achieve that e-girl aesthetic.
