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.
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.
