A little over a year ago, I was introduced to “scene hair”, or “emo hair”. A MySpace trend. I see the style a lot in younger girls now, and I think it is fun and flashy. Not just for MySpace anymore.
The scene haircuts (that I have done) are about long, thin, pin-straight length, and short, backcombed layers. This can also be done to short/medium length hair, and you can even add extensions, too. For the full effect.
But what fun would this haircut be without some fun color placement?
A lot of girls go all out with their color and do Zebra Stripes, Raccoon Tails, Leopard Spots, Polkadots and outrageous colors. Others just play with Jet Black Color and Bleach. These can also be done with extensions, if you are afraid of commitment and upkeep.
Now, add the biggest sunglasses you can find, a lot of eyeliner and MAC Makeup, and some oversized flowers and bows, and you might just be a Scene Queen. Or they will call you a poser…
