Inside the Scene Kid Scene

Not long after the turn of the millennium, a trend began growing among American teenagers. The “scene” movement began, largely attributed to model, makeup artist, and singer, Jeffree Star. The scene kids style could be described as 1980s punk meets Alice in Wonderland. The primary characteristics of the scene kid style incorporate neon colors such as hot pink and teal which were popular in the 80s, zebra-striped clothing and heavy makeup (sometimes carrying a high resemblance to goth makeup) with heavy eyeliner and other accents which draw attention mostly to the eye.

When learning about the scene subculture, it is important to consider all aspects of the movement to answer this question and not just members’ fashion choices. Most scene kids have chosen a specific lifestyle which is represented and supported by how they present themselves physically. Clothing and makeup are selected using specific parameters set by the scene culture, which generally consists of mostly teenagers. It seems to draw inspiration from the previously popular emo, grunge, and skater teen subcultures, but with more glam. Hair dying, makeup, tattoos and piercings are accompanied by glitter and bows, skinny jeans and skinny ties. As with the teen culture genres of old, painted fingernails seems to be common as are multiple piercings, especially facial piercings. Styled hair, often a choppy layered cut with side bang on girls, and glamorized makeup is then combined with wearing more casual and less conventional clothing such as trucker hats, t-shirts with graphic designs or cartoon characters and, in a tribute to the preceding dark-mood-driven teen cultures, combat boots.

That same criteria is applied to all areas of the scene kid’s lifestyle including music preferences, phrases, and even recreational choices. The music most commonly associated with the scene kid is less than mainstream. Most of the scene music, including Breathe Carolina and Blood On The Dance Floor, fall into the electronic rock or electropop music genres in which synthesizers are heavily used. Other scene bands, like Design The Skyline, play metal music. While some music, especially that of brokeNCYDE, has been heavily criticized within both the musical and the literary worlds, scene youths listen avidly and attentively, absorbing the messages within the lyrics. The common theme in scene music, as well as in many of the quotes that are associated with scene culture, is one of being misunderstood or alone or in some kind of emotional desperation.

Common themes standout in the recreational activities of scene kids as well. Interests and hobbies of the scene kids include anime art and literature as well as anime-based stories and TV shows. Many scene kids participate in “cosplay,” a costume-based version of role-playing, and are heavily interested in music and entertainment such as theater. Scene kids live all over the internet. They are tech-savvy enough to know and manage all of the social media sites and are flooding those sites with selfies and scene-based propaganda including song lyrics and quotes which feed into their “cry-for-attention” teenage agendas.

The scene culture is often accused of having ripped off the emo trends of earlier years. However, members of scene culture pride themselves on the uniqueness and individual expression on which they claim the scene world is based. Scene culture originated from the 70s term “scene queen,” which referred to a heterosexual musician who dressed and acted as if they were gay. The term changed from “scene queen” to “scene kid” denoting that the majority of those who subscribed to the subculture were teenagers or younger.

Scene culture, because of the gender bending styles and cross-gender trends, is often very attractive to LBGT and LBGT-curious youth. In most teen cultures, only girls where heavy or colorful makeup. In the scene culture, both males and females alike wear makeup, dye and stylize their hair, and wear both male and female oriented clothing interchangeably. Scene creates an atmosphere which encourages exploration of a person counter-gender aspects and is accepting of people without gender bias, although other biases do exist.

So what are scene kids? They are young people who are seeking a means of self-expression which allows for their own uniqueness to be seen while breaking the societal constructs which feel stifling and limiting to their growing character. In other words, they are teenagers growing up and trying to figure themselves out as well as figure out the challenging and yet enticing world they live in. Scene is about acceptance as well as individualism. Scene kids are just creative young people sifting through life’s emotions in an outwardly, colorful, and spectacular way.

Choosing a Scene Kid Wallpaper

The images that people choose for the desktop wallpaper of their computers can sometimes say a lot about their identities. There are plenty of people who don’t put much thought into their desktop wallpapers, which often partly sends the message that they’re focusing on other things. It may also send the message that they aren’t particularly interested in interior decorating, fashion, or related art forms. Other people will try to put a lot of personal expression into their desktop wallpapers and their computers will really stand out as a result.

scene kid wallpapers


Many individuals will simply choose pleasing images, but other people may feel that they can partly reinforce their chosen identities through their computer desktop wallpapers. Many scene kid wallpaper choices seem to indicate that this is the case for members of that particular subculture. Many of the stylistic motifs found in the typical scene kid wardrobe can also be found in the typical scene kid desktop wallpaper.

For one thing, scene fashion emphasizes neon colors quite a bit. Most scene kid computer wallpaper images are going to be full of neon colors. In fact, some of these wallpapers are more or less going to resemble abstract configurations of neon colors, often similar to a highly conceptual digital painting. These wallpapers can be somewhat striking to look at, and it may not be immediately obvious that the wallpaper in question is a scene wallpaper in any way. People who don’t connect the scene subculture to neon colors may not make the connection.

Other scene kid desktop wallpapers are much more easily identifiable as products of this particular subculture. Some of these wallpapers will feature graphics and symbols that are popular in the scene subculture. One interesting aspect of the subculture is the fact that some death motifs which people associate with the goth subculture are also popular in the scene subculture, although the two groups approach the subject very differently. Death is certainly dramatic and the scene subculture emphasizes standing out among the crowd.

In the goth subculture, skeletons, bats, and other dark motifs are paired with dark colors and reds. In the scene subculture, these kinds of dark motifs will often be paired with the same characteristic neon colors that represent the subculture in general. It makes for an odd dichotomy, especially since cheerful, popular cartoon icons are sometimes also added into the mix. Halloween is certainly about dark themes and emotions for some people; other people emphasize the costume party aspect more. To a certain extent, this divide characterizes the different ways in which goth people and scene people use Halloween motifs.

Lots of scene kid desktop wallpapers have a very busy appearance. These kinds of busy wallpapers certainly draw attention to themselves, which is part of the objective with scene fashion. The wallpapers will be littered with symbols that scene kids like. Small images of couples kissing might be featured on the same page as a series of stars, lightning bolts, musical notes, gems, hearts, and crowns. The kissing couples will just act as additional symbols in a long arrangement of other symbols. Many of these wallpapers have a certain manic energy to them, as if they were assembled by someone who was anxious to record his or her thoughts and feelings.

Some of the wallpapers almost look like sheets of stickers, giving them a very familiar feel. Many scene kid desktop wallpapers have an improvised look to them, which matches the look of a lot of scene kid outfits. While it takes a lot of effort to put the scene wardrobe together, it often has a casual look to it. Scene kids don’t take this as far as hipsters, of course, but they also don’t emphasize formal clothing like goths.

The scene desktop wallpapers that aren’t as colorful will often feature both black and hot pink, possibly with some white. If many scene people had to pick one color, they would probably choose hot pink, and hot pink is everywhere in the desktop wallpapers that they choose. The iconography and the color scheme of many desktop wallpapers is going to give them away as scene wallpapers, which can allow scene kids to subtly emphasize their identities each and every time they activate their computers.

Envisioning a Scene Kid Name Generator

Name generators typically attract a lot of attention online. Some people try to create names and use them, and other people create these sorts of names as a joke. Since many people on the internet have a strong fondness for irony, some people would more or less try to do both. Plenty of scene kids certainly have a sense of humor about their subculture, which is partly built on the idea that people should be confident. Confident people try not to let small jokes bother them. Still, all scene kids and people familiar with the scene subculture will recognize certain patterns in the choices that scene kids make when it comes to their screen names and the other names that they use online.

name generator scene

There are certain adjectives that show up a lot in the screen names of scene kids. Synonyms for “pretty” or “cute” are common, as are synonyms for “talkative” or “tough.” Often, synonyms are paired with names and a scene name generator could take advantage of that trend quite nicely. There are plenty of domain name generators that already operate on those principles, such as As long as these name generators use the right set of adjectives, scene kids could easily end up with screen names and usernames like “ToughTed” or “PrettyPolly.”

Scene kids value aesthetics and confidence, so it shouldn’t be surprising that many of them specifically choose screen names that reference those virtues. Some scene kids may use their real names, even if they include specific adjectives when using their names. However, other people will choose online names that have more of a scene flavor to them. Lots of online screen names associated with the scene subculture are very catchy and witty, while also being fairly common Western names. People with longer names may essentially trade them in when they go online, where they will often assume a new identity in the process.

Other scene kid names might include references to famous anime characters. Plenty of people in this subculture would favor name generators that allowed them to mesh certain adjectives with the names of their favorite characters. Other people might favor references to Alice in Wonderland, a narrative and set of symbols that has managed to become popular for people in the goth and the scene subculture. Goth people would be more likely to favor literary references when they were choosing their screen names since the goth subculture puts a lot of emphasis on romantic literature. However, the scene subculture isn’t necessarily adverse to literary references, especially when it comes to literature which has a lot of a presence in popular culture.

Of course, some scene kids would never use a name generator for any reason. Their movement places more emphasis on individual self-expression, and some scene kids would see the name generator as being something that turns aspects of the scene identity into commodities or gimmicks. Other people might interpret the concept of a scene kid name generator as being a joke in itself, and not everyone is going to be satisfied. Some people might use a scene name generator in order to create parodies related to the scene subculture. However, if too many people did this, the parodies would eventually become stale and repetitive.

The presence of a scene name generator would partly indicate just how popular the scene identity is today. Obscure and tiny subcultures do not attract name generators of any kind, even among the few die-hard fans; only the popular subcultures attract this kind of attention. The critics of the scene culture end up validating the subculture by their very presence, since something needs to reach a certain level of popularity to develop critics. The fact that it is possible to create a scene name generator also indicates that the subculture has a certain degree of cohesion, in spite of the fact that there is a lot of flexibility within it. Scene kids should rejoice at the possibility of a scene name generator, since it is overall a positive sign for them and for the subculture.

Identifying Scene Kid Hairstyles

Hairstyles in the scene kid movement are among the most easily identifiable aspects of the scene subculture. Very few scene kids are going to have hair that hasn’t been visibly modified in some way. Members of the scene subculture put a lot of time and energy into their appearance, and they want that effort to be clearly apparent when people look at them.

defining scene kid hair

People in the scene subculture will almost always have straight hair. They will put a lot of work into making sure their straight hair has a lot of volume, of course, but the hair itself is going to be pin-straight. In that regard, scene hairstyles almost feel like a blend between the hairstyles that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s.

During the 1980s, people nearly did everything to avoid having “flat” hair if they wanted to maintain fashionable hairstyles. Even men would have very puffy, voluminous hair which often extended outward so much that it obscured the tops of their ears and made their heads look larger. Women would have hugely feathered bangs and layer upon layer of voluminous hair. However, a lot of hairstyles during the 1980s emphasized curls. Some fashionable hairstyles were straight, but it was even common to see actors and models with very curly, fluffy hair. People who used hair dryers too often would frequently end up with frizzy hair as a result, which only added to this popular look. Often, scene kid hairstyles are also very voluminous, but it is normally straight. Frizz is something to be controlled, not encouraged in the scene subculture.

The 1990s, particularly the mid-1990s onwards, put much more of an emphasis on straight hair. It was more common to see people straightening their hair as opposed to curling. However, big, voluminous hair was still highly fashionable. Women would have short hairstyles which were highly layered as that look was popular throughout the 1990s. Using bright and artificially colored hair dye was popular as well, and neon hair colors have always been popular choice for those using non-traditional hair dye. The trendy thing to do was to add streaks to the hair or to only have certain portions of the hair dyed, instead of an all-over color. The scene subculture has kept all of these traditions alive.

A lot of scene kids will have bangs, particularly long and layered bangs. Many girls will wear flashy hair accessories if they want to really perfect the scene look. The bangs scene kids often wear usually look like they have been brushed to one side in a dramatic way. Scene people will typically dye their hair in creative ways. The hair which is closest to the roots might be dyed, and the rest of their hair might be naturally colored. Some scene kids just choose lots of different colors, although few of them will create a distinct rainbow effect.

Pinning down the hairstyles of the first decades of the twenty-first century has been somewhat difficult. This is partly a function of the fact that it may simply be too soon to do so, since it is difficult to comment on a cultural trend that still feels normal. However, this is also partly a function of the fact that the twenty-first century has been characterized by the growth of subcultures. People are online today more often than ever before, which is going to influence how they experience culture and society.

At one point, people watched all of the same television channels and saw all of the same movies, since that was all that was available, which helped create a more uniform culture. Today, people’s experience of culture and society may be influenced by which corner of the internet that they frequent which is going to vary a lot from person to person. This trend is also going to influence how hairstyles and trends develop over time.

The scene subculture has flourished in an environment like this. Scene kids are involved in their own growing corner of society and the internet. They have been able to establish what is cool within this corner, and other people in other areas have done the exact same thing.

Notable Scene Kid Quotes

Some scene kid quotes are going to be hard to pin down. For one thing, most quotes from scene kids are going to be falsely attributed to them. It is much easier to find examples of scene quotes which relate to the scene subculture itself, yet which are written from the perspective of people outside of the subculture. The scene subculture has certainly inspired plenty of internet memes where the saying is featured along with a photograph. Some scene kids may adopt these sorts of sayings with or without irony but many of them were not originally from the scene subculture.

scene kid quotes

It is interesting that in internet culture, fan groups can form against something or in favor of it. Entire groups of people will create fan fiction about works of fiction that they dislike. The people who dislike the scene subculture almost seem to have formed their own miniature culture in opposition to it, and that culture has produced its own set of quotes and symbols. Separating members of one subculture from opposing fans of almost anything can be difficult in some cases.

There are plenty of quotes which scene kids like, but these quotes may or may not be considered popular in the scene subculture itself. Lots of individual scene kids seem to like quotes about love, which makes sense. Many adolescents have been fed an idealized image of love throughout a good portion of their childhoods. Many of them are trying to grow beyond that image but others may still have some affection for it. Quotes about love and relationships are going to appeal to people who are still developing their own philosophies about the subject, and many adolescents are in that situation. Discussions of love and romance are by no means unique to scene kids, but the scene culture doesn’t try to exclude them either. The imagery and iconography that many scene kids use is full of romance and romantic symbols, so it isn’t surprising that a lot of their favorite quotes revolve around similar topics.

It also fairly easy to find quotes in the scene subculture that relate to the adolescent experience in general. Not all members of the scene culture are adolescents, of course; some of them are preteens and some of them are in their twenties. However, the majority of scene people are adolescents, so the adolescent experience is going to be an important topic of discussion. People who are about to become teenagers will probably find the topic relevant as well, and many people in their twenties are close enough to the adolescent experience emotionally that they are generally willing to listen and can still understand the references. Scene people who bring up quotes about the adolescent experience should find a receptive audience.

One popular scene quote is a variation on the following phrase: Some people blend in with the crowd, but we want to make a scene. This quote is useful because it helps make it clear why the name “scene” caught on with the subculture in the first place. The term “scene” may not be entirely intuitive for a lot of people, which has no doubt confused a lot of parents, teachers, and others who work with adolescents. The noun “scene” has not been used in this context very frequently before and the scene subculture is still relatively new. As the scene subculture becomes more popular, this situation will probably change. However, this scene quote is something that people can use in order to clear up any of the confusion that still remains.

A lot of other scene quotes are about individuality and not changing oneself for the sake of others. Many scene kids will include visual posts on their blogs that contain inspirational quotes that are all about maintaining one’s identity, even in the face of intense criticism. Naturally, the people who post those quotes on the internet will receive intense criticism, but internet bullies will often do that to any target they find. Scene kids have been a favorite target for internet bullies from the beginning, which has probably only strengthened the bond that scene kids have for one another in the first place. In their own way, the online bullies have probably promoted group unity.

Recognizing Scene Kid Drawings

It is often easy to guess something about someone’s interests based on what sorts of drawings they create or enjoy. Scene drawings are often recognizable based on their subjects alone. There are certain icons that are very popular in the scene community. The fact that they are so popular is obvious the moment anyone looks at the sorts of drawings that scene kids like to add to their online art and social media accounts.

scene kids drawings

Many scene drawings use an art style that is similar to Japanese anime. Anime has helped influence the scene kid subculture, and many of them have more or less learned to draw after becoming inspired by Japanese anime in the first place. Of course, the anime art style is very popular in general, but many scene kids specifically gravitate towards it. They will especially favor people drawn in an anime style who have colorful hair, which is often the case for many anime characters as it is. Anime characters tend to have very narrow builds, so putting them in the leggings or the skinny jeans that characterize the scene style is very easy to do. Drawings of scene girls are going to be more popular than drawings of scene boys for whatever reason.

Scene drawings will obviously feature people drawn wearing scene outfits. However, there are subtler cues to look for when recognizing scene drawings. For one thing, lots of scene kids draw couples that are kissing. Many scene kids are at an age in which having first loves is very common, and it is a state that tends to be idealized for a lot of people in the subculture. Of course, scene kids also tend to like skeletons, and seeing pictures of skeletons kissing is also surprisingly common. Skeletons certainly attract attention, particularly if they are behaving in a way that would otherwise be regarded as normal. As such, it isn’t surprising that an image like this would be popular among scene kids.

One of the tough parts about identifying scene kid drawings is separating the parodies from the drawings which are intended to be sincere. The scene subculture has attracted a lot of criticism, and some people draw scene kids in order to mock them. Some of these derisive drawings will be paired with critical sayings, but many of them won’t be, which makes identifying them as satirical even harder. Parodying scene kids through imagery alone is difficult, since the scene subculture already emphasizes standing out from the crowd and being confident. Exaggerating scene fashion for the sake of a joke is a challenge.

Separating the parodies from the sincere scene drawings may not be necessary. Plenty of scene kids, who care a lot about being confident, would simply try to appropriate the critical drawings anyway. Since some of them may not be satirical enough to get any real message across, this appropriation may be even easier to accomplish. Even if the situation arises, with image editing software, removing critical or vulgar phrasing is easy. Some scene drawings are probably intended to be somewhat educational, since they feature descriptions of the scene subculture and lists of characteristics. Those pictures also serve for identity reinforcement. The internet makes this sort of approach very easy for anyone.

Some scene drawings simply feature things that are popular in the scene community. Scene kids often like rainbows, stars, hearts, and similarly playful and somewhat childlike motifs. Some of these drawings will be featured alongside the drawings of scene kids themselves. Others will basically look like doodles, and they will be featured along with some scene kid saying or scene kid joke. There’s a lot of freedom when it comes to creating art on the internet. It’s easy for even the most obscure artists to find small audiences of devoted fans that share their esoteric interests. People that like doing scene drawings, given the size of the scene subculture, won’t have any trouble finding fans of their drawings. The scene subculture emphasizes internet culture quite a lot, so members of the scene subculture are going to be an available as well as a receptive audience.

Scene Kids Online

The internet paved the way for scene culture early on. Websites such as MySpace, where scene-inspiring singer, model, and makeup artist Jeffree Star first self-released his music, and YouTube were among the first to offer an online place for scene culture to thrive. Scene culture, while pulling a lot of fashion inspiration from 1980s and 1990s punk, grunge, goth, and emo subcultures, is very modern in its music. Though some scene affiliated bands are of a metal persuasion, the majority of scene music concentrates on electronic sounds and synthesizers. This type of music is often produced by a solitary musician using one or multiple electronic instruments such as a keyboard. This type of music is easily recorded in a home sound studio and uploaded to internet sites. Therefore, sites such as YouTube make the scene culture more accessible online.

scene kid websites

While sites like MySpace opened the door for the musicians and musical genres associated with scene, that isn’t all it did for the scene culture. “Scene queens” became quite popular during MySpace’s heyday. Some of these scene queens gained so much attention and such a large fan base, that a gossip site was created just to dish their particular brand of trash-gab. When MySpace popularity was taken over by the newer social media entities, the scene queen popularity did not translate, leaving the scene groups to find new avenues for attention and connection. Scene queen fame was short-lived and not very lucrative. However, it did jump start an online cultural trend which still exists today.

Scene youth may get their fix of musical interaction easily enough through the more popular websites but they don’t go there for their social fix. Nor do they tend to frequent the mainstream social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Scene kids are looking for a different type of interaction, one that helps to validate their self-inflicted solitude and brooding social rebellion. These youth are more likely to frequent a scene kid website such as, a social networking site similar to Facebook which is set up specifically with the scene kid in mind. Youth can create a profile, make friends and message with other users just like other, more popular social media networks. However, and other similar websites truly cater to the scene kid proclivities. The site is scene-themed with the colors and graphics which are popular with scene youth and most include a forum or message board where users share their thoughts and feelings. Some even include a space for posting poems, songs, and artwork as well.

Youth who are part of the scene culture tend not to be the most popular kids in school, whether by circumstance or design, and therefore are often seeking peer interaction through what they see as safer channels such as the internet. These young people are emotionally driven and are often very creative individuals. Websites for scene kids can not only provide a place for safe peer interaction but some also facilitate a means of self-expression and creative exploration. These websites, these little safe havens within the vast internet, can sometimes be the only refuge some teens have throughout the day. The scene culture draws inspiration heavily from trends of the 1980s and 1990s eras which are often highlighted on the internet because of the introduction of publicly accessible digital media devices just a few years earlier. Since the scene cultural trends continue to grow and entice young people, websites which support that culture will continue to pop up.

Every young person is looking for one thing: acceptance. In today’s society, it is just as important for teenagers to find acceptance online as it is in life outside of the internet. Cyber bullying only has power because youth are looking for cyber acceptance. The best way to find acceptance is by connecting with people who are also looking for acceptance of the same kind. This creates an online need for sites which allow young people to meet peers who are uniquely similar to themselves, who share their feelings and beliefs to some extent. Websites that create a welcoming and supportive environment for scene kids who see themselves as isolated and misunderstood are crucial in having an internet that is emotionally safe for young people.

The Complicated Scene Kids Definition

Establishing a scene kids definition is harder than it may initially appear. The scene subculture is, in some ways, one of the most complicated subcultures to emerge in recent years. Many modern subcultures place a great deal of emphasis on wearing a certain style of clothing and listening to a certain selection of musicians. People who join these subcultures are trying to construct a coherent new identity and they seek out these styles of clothing and music for the sake of identity reinforcement. The scene subculture is no different, but it manages to set itself apart from many other subcultures in a unique way: it sometimes seems to be a blend of various other subcultures.

definition of scene kids

There’s a great deal of overlap between a wide range of different subcultures. Many people who are outside of both subcultures get the goth and the punk subcultures confused, for instance, since a lot of punks and goths will include piercings and dark colors in their ensembles. Some people identify as both punk and goth, so the subcultures have merged in some respects. The scene subculture almost entirely seems like the product of various other subcultures merging. Many people involved in the scene subculture tend to be actively searching for their identities, and they seem to have made emotional connections in several different places as a result.

Many scene kids stress that their subculture is distinct from the emo subculture. The two subcultures do listen to some of the same music groups, but the scene subculture tends to listen to many different music groups that are sometimes associated with other subcultures. The emo subculture tends to place a lot of emphasis on powerful and sometimes negative emotions, which is very different from the scene subculture. The scene subculture, if anything, tends to emphasize being positive and living one’s life regardless of how other people react. Both the emo and scene subcultures are not without their share of critics, so the fact that being confident in oneself is such an important virtue in the scene subculture is certainly not surprising.

The definition of a scene kid is also difficult to fully establish because different scene kids will define it in unique ways. Many people are going to vary in terms of their opinions of their own subcultures. For some scene kids, an important part of identifying as “scene” is not being judgmental or cocky about being scene in the first place. The scene movement partly seems like a backlash against people in various subcultures who take their subcultures far too seriously. The scene subculture isn’t mocking these people, but scene kids seem to be trying to take their own styles in a different direction.

The scene style seems to emphasize a lot of bright and cheerful colors, which sets it apart from the style of the goth and punk subcultures substantially. Some aspects of the scene subculture seem to be somewhat preppy and cheerful in nature. Many of the popular subcultures among young people in the last thirty years have emphasized turning away from being preppy, making the preppy style something that was popular and reviled at the same time. The scene style almost seems to represent a backlash against that mindset as well, as if the scene kids are trying to absorb the positive aspects of the preppy style with none of the negative overtones.

Scene kids avoid wearing too many items that were purchased at thrift stores, which is a practice that is strongly associated with the hipster movement. Many scene kids do dress in a manner that is reminiscent of hipsters, however, which can make the situation somewhat confusing to the people on the outside. Still, it doesn’t take a lot of money to dress like a scene kid. Eyeliner, bright-colored hair dye, and some fashionably asymmetrical and mismatched clothing will often be enough to complete the look.

Scene kids give themselves a lot of room to explore within the subculture itself. The scene style has a certain built-in flexibility which is definitely part of its appeal. Scene music is fairly broad, ranging from cheerful to mildly gloomy. The subculture seems to be a good choice for people who are still trying to find their place within the world.

Tips on Scene Hair for Kids

For kids today, the scene hairstyle is certainly a possibility. People in the scene subculture are usually people in their teens or twenties. However, there are plenty of people who get involved with the subculture at an even earlier age. It also remains to be seen what is going to happen to the members of the current scene subculture as they get older. Some of them may immediately “leave” the movement when they turn thirty, but others may decide to stick with the style and fashion sense for longer periods of time, which is going to change the subculture somewhat. On the other hand, if more people enter the scene subculture before they’re even thirteen, it will also change the subculture. Having scene people of varying ages is going to help make the style more mainstream, for better or worse.

how to get scene kids hair

Scene hair for kids may be a bit trickier than scene hair for teens and twenty-somethings. For one thing, many people in their teens and twenties will have already done a lot of experimentation when it comes to hair styling, so they may know the ropes already. Younger kids will be doing it for the first time and they will probably make mistakes along the way. They will be better off getting hair stylists to help them out when they try scene hairstyles for the first time.

Some hair stylists will be familiar with the scene subculture, but many of them will not. In fact, many parents won’t know about it either and they may be confused when their young children bring it up for the first time. It is better to give both parents and hair stylists a picture or a series of pictures of scene hair styles in order to describe them, since it may be difficult to get the point across otherwise. The scene movement is new and there is still something of a generation gap when it comes to all of its characteristics. The internet in general is closing many generation gaps since parents can easily look up the definition of a scene kid and kids are learning about the subculture at an early age.

Younger kids will have an even harder time than teenagers when it comes to getting parental permission for almost anything. Parents today are somewhat more accustomed to kids doing things at an earlier age than parents of the past since the internet and the mainstream media tends to introduce children to youth culture early. Parents already have to struggle with many other things when it comes to knowing when to let their young children get involved with things. Many parents don’t expect to let their kids decide whether or not to get involved with a subculture until their children are at least in their teens, so kids that want to be a part of the scene subculture may surprise them.

Young scene kids might want to try temporary hair dyes instead of the real thing, especially if they are just trying out their new hair colors for the first time. Kids need to develop the necessary skills for coloring one’s hair, which is much trickier than it looks. Many kids might think that a particular color is going to look great, but they may be disappointed with how it ultimately turns out. Kids also tend to have very fine hair, and people’s hair color can  change with time. Hair dye tends to be made for adults, so people that are coloring kids’ hair need to take that into account when purchasing it. Many parents would also be more willing to let their kids use temporary hair dye as opposed to anything that is going to last more than a couple weeks.

A lot of temporary hair dye looks exactly the same as permanent dye, so young scene kids can still certainly look the part even though they will have to dye their hair more often in order to maintain the look. In the process, scene kids can also experiment with different colors and arrangements of colors. Little kids and preteens are doing a lot of things for the first time, so this part of the process shouldn’t be unusual for them. Becoming a scene kid could be a major source of personal expression for very young children, so there is no need to rush into anything.

Understanding Scene Kid Clothes

The scene fashion sense is somewhat complicated. Scene kids spend a lot of time innovating when it comes to fashion, which can make scene clothes somewhat difficult to identify at first glance. Goth fashion is unmistakable; it involves a lot of black and it tends to emphasize formal and somewhat anachronistic stylistic choices. Scene kid fashion, in some ways, almost reads as the exact opposite of goth fashion.

Goth fashion is all about dark colors. Usually, the only bright color that goths emphasize is red, giving their wardrobe a very darkly dramatic look. Scene clothes emphasize the kinds of bright colors that draw lots of attention to the wearers, which is certainly what scene kids intend. They didn’t join the scene subculture in order to perfectly blend in with the rest of the crowd, and there is generally no danger of that happening when it comes to hardcore members of the scene community.

Naturally, the bright colors in the scene wardrobe are also important in scene hairstyles. It is sometimes easy to identify scene kids based on their hair. They will typically wear bright colors to match, although the bright colors may have been deliberately chosen because they clash with the wearer’s dyed hair. Not all bright colors are created equally, of course. There are subcategories within the category of bright colors. Scene clothing tends to emphasize wearing neon colors. Some of these colors may also double as pastel shades, but there aren’t going to be as many primary colors in scene clothing.

Individuals who are fond of 1980s fashion may notice the ways in which a lot of scene clothes are vaguely reminiscent of youth fashion in the 1980s. For one thing, a lot of scene kids wear tight leggings. They may pair these leggings with short shorts or short skirts, which was very popular in 1980s fashion and has recently come back into style. The fashion of the 1980s was also exclusively famous for focusing on neon colors which are everywhere in scene fashion today.

Naturally, scene kid clothes are almost always paired with very obvious accessories. In that regard, scene fashion again manages to invoke 1980s fashion. Lots of scene kids can be observed wearing very large and gaudy sunglasses. The people who need prescription lenses may choose a similar aesthetic for their regular glasses, allowing them to maintain an even stronger scene appearance all the time. Glasses are considered cool accessories these days, now that geeks and nerds are cool. In that sense, scene fashion almost feels like an update of 1980s fashion, rather than simply an homage to it.

Scene kids tend to wear jewelry that is very large and chunky. They will wear more big, plastic bracelets than delicate pearl necklaces. The jewelry is also going to have a tendency to be brightly-colored. Scene kids may wear several different bright, neon colors in one outfit, and they will be difficult to miss on the street or anywhere else. The scene subculture was partly influenced by the styles which are common in Japanese anime, and this is one reason why some scene kids almost look like live-action versions of anime characters.

Scene clothes tend to emphasize solid colors, but some of the stockings and leggings that scene kids wear will include horizontal stripes. Scene kids tend to wear pants which are form-fitting. Skinny jeans and leggings are both very popular in the subculture. The baggy pants that members of the skater subculture wear are definitely “out” when it comes to the scene subculture.

Many scene kids are automatically identified by the fact that many of them will wear hats. In addition to all of their other accessories, scene kids tend to wear large hats. Some of the hats that were designed to have kitsch value become popular in the scene subculture. Their hats will rarely match the rest of their outfits, but that incongruity is part of the statement.

Fashion that is coordinated well is literally easy on the eyes. Something that is easy on the eyes is probably not going to be as captivating as something that’s more striking. Scene clothes could most definitely be described as striking, which is very much the intention of the wearers.
