why is it side swiped bangs and color streaked hair is called emo?

i told my little brother and sister i wanted my bangs to the side and to streak my hair purple or pink and they automatically say, 'you're emo.' whats up with that? why does everything have a stereotype? im not emo and dont have anything against those that are, i just like the hair, simple as that. i think its nice.i dont have to be emo to like the side bangs and want colors in my hair right.

    Because people simply associate those type of haircuts with "emo kids". Like you said it's a huge stereotype. Although if this was 2005 again you would see girls AND guys walking around with those haircuts.. But now it's just a stereotype.

    side swipe bangs are the best, and they always look good. i have the same hairstyle, and my hair never comes out of a ponytail lol.

    well little kids pick stuff up off tv so the probably saw a person say to another person "hey your emo" or something like that so that is not emo!
