Emotes appear over player heads as an animated icon. This is an example of the "yay" emote.

There are currently three pages of emotes. The first page of emotes are the basic emotes. These are the only emotes that are also accessible by typing slash commands.
If you hover over an emote, a floating tooltip will show you what slash command to type. Most of these are also used in the Emoticon game at the Party Master, so it helps to learn these.
The second page of emotes is the guild emotes:
These emotes are not accessible with slash commands, and must be clicked on.
While everyone has the same amount of emotes, the actual displayed emote will vary depending on the guild mascot. This is an example of a Badtz guild showing the "hug" emote:
