    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!
