How To Be Goth: Step 1

Let's start with some basics: hair, face, and skin

It usually helps to have long hair, although this is not a requirement. If you have short hair, you can make it look just as spooky. There is no wrong way to make hair look spooky, just as long as it does. In fact, your hair style doesn't even need to make sense. If you need to shave some areas, feel free. For best results, dye your hair black. One of the standard rules of thumb: the darker the better. Wear all black clothing.

Your face and skin tone should be pale, ghostly and really, really creepy. You can accentuate your facial features by using eyeliner and lipstick. Remember--black! This adds an eerie effect to your already pale complexion.
