Secrets to Perfect Scene Hair

Scene Hair

What is Scene Hair?

Basically, scene hair (aka emo hair) is a choppy hairstyle that is most often dyed black, or with colored chunky streaks here and there. More often than not, the hair is straight and heavily layered. The trick to scene hair is to keep it uneven. The choppier your hair is, the more funky and edgy the look!

Some prefer to wear their fringe or bangs long to go with this hairstyle. Cute hairclips, bows and hair bands can be worn together with this look. This is because these hair accessories are in direct juxtaposition with the edgy, messy, boyish look, making the overall style more vibrant and interesting.

Some women prefer the short, boyish scene hair and others prefer the long scene hairstyle. Regardless of the length of your hair, the layers are key to achieving the perfect scene hairstyle. These layers don’t have to be neatly cut, in fact the beauty of scene hair, lies in the pure randomness of layers!

For girls with short hair, choppiness of the layering can make your hair look sparse when left flat.  Choose a  hair texturizer like TIGI Bed Head Manipulator and use your fingers to run it through your hair for more volume. The layers are easier to work with when you use a hair product. This way, you can get a messy, modern look.

If you are a serious scene hair woman, consider experimenting with hair dyes. Scene hair has been defined normally with black  hair dye, but increasingly girls are opting for bolder, statement colors such as pink, blue, red and blonde! You can dye your whole head, just a few streaks or the fringe only.

A simple, no fuss option for short hairstyles use extensions! They come in a variety of colors and lengths and allow for an easy change-up, to match your look . Oh, and what could be easier than adding extensions for long scene hair without hassle!

For girls that prefer the longer scene hairstyles, you don’t necessarily have to keep it dead straight. Some girls would rather sport  layered curls, making it full of volume on the top of the head and thinner at the ends. For long-haired divas, straight or curly, remember to condition your hair regularly because the choppiness of the layering of this hairstyle can make your ends appear damaged or dry.

Long fringe or bangs complete the scene hair style look. Bangs are specifically side swept, choppy,sometimes shorter and always straight. If duo or multicolored hair is not your thing, decking it with a lovely hair accessory can be another alternative!

The essence of scene hair is its spontaneity!  Scene hair is definitely a hairstyle that allows girls a lot of room for experimentation and there is no correct or perfect scene hairstyle out there. Girls, work with the layers and the bangs, keep the top thick and don’t hesitate to try out a bright, daring new color!

Emo Hair Styles of Another Kind

Think Twice Before Going In For Emo Hair Styles

What do you think of when you hear the description, “Emo Hair Style” as a new hairstyle look? Well let me tell you, the “emo hair style” I’m talking about here, is not the “emo hair style” anyone in their right mind should set out to wear.

“Get Input Before the Emo Hair Style”Ok, the “emo” description that I’m talking about, still refers to the same concept of the hairstyle originating with and being all about emotions, but in a different way.

Hairdressers have a front row seat in seeing this emotional drama play out in the lives of many clients. Why is it that time and time again when faced with some major stress in our lives, like a break-up or divorce, job loss, money problems, death of a loved one and so on, we tend to want to take it out on our hair? For some reason the underlying immediate resolve to these traumas seems to be almost universal in nature. That is, “if we drastically change our hair, all will be well.”

We can make some pretty drastic decisions with our hair. He liked blond high lights, you decide now to go black. He loved your long hair . . . it must be time to cut it off. They were so stuffy at that job who needs them . . . I think I want pink high lights. I feel fat and I have so much hair . . . I think I just want to cut it all off! (That last resolve, by the way, is a hugely popular one for an emo hair style fix.)

There is a problem with this kind of thinking though, it’s called a “quick fix.” But it’s usually the wrong fix to an emotional situation and sometimes it can’t be so easily corrected either.

I love my job, especially when I can make a change for someone and know that it will look great on them and in turn, make them feel good about themselves. However, when someone comes in an emotional basket case and sits down in my chair and starts pulling out of their hat some horrendous idea, for a drastic new hairstyle change we need to do right now . . . whew, let’s just say the red flags go up.

I really don’t want them to leave looking worse than when they came in and I certainly don’t want their unstable emotions switched towards me, because somehow I now have allowed them do this unflattering hairstyle. Then they think, “things weren’t even that bad until I got this ridiculous haircut!”

Emo Hair Style
So the advice I want to convey from behind the chair is this; When you are not feeling good about yourself because of a situation and think a dramatic hairstyle change, color change, (emo hair style) will be your saving grace . . . slow down. Take a deep breath, maybe wait a few days and think of the reasons why you desire this particular change. A lot of times after the dust has settled and you have a clear head, you wished you wouldn’t have cut it all off, or maybe drastically colored it in the first place.

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a change is just what you needed, but maybe you needed it after you have calmed down from your initial reaction to your situation. I’m all for change, but do it for the right reasons at the right time

Emo Hair Styles are not Really New

Choosing Trendy Over Natural Beauty is Always a Mistake

Today I happened across an article at fellow Glamer StyleGuru on Emo Hair Styles. As I looked through the Emo Hair Style Gallery I couldn’t help noticing how unattractive most of the Emo hair styles were.
“Emo Hair Styles are Usually a Mistake”
A hairdresser cringes when an attractive female with a great face shape and wonderful hair to work with comes in to the hair salon and asks for a trendy hair cut that is bound to make her look less attractive. This is almost always a beauty faux paus and is a complete waste of natural beauty.

Yet generation after generation of women fall for naturally unattractive styles only to look trendy or fashionable. In the 60’s we had the beehive look that was hideous on almost everybody except the tiniest segment. Then we had the back-combed look of the 70’s and 80’s that looked stupid and tortured the hair. In the 90’s we had punk, then the Goth look and now Emo hair styles.

Classic beauties become classics by maximizing every natural beauty asset and never ever compromising attractiveness for style. Whenever you’re about to opt for a stylish look ask yourself: Do I want to be a classic beauty or just another yawner with this weeks hot, but ugly hairstyle.
