Short Scene Hair

Add color for a unique short style.

If you are ready for an exciting and unique hairstyle, consider short scene hair. You want to express yourself and stand out. Scene hair is the way to do it.

Are You Scene?

Did you know that the scene cuts you admire are a pop culture revolution? Your Grandma wore a flower garland in her hair at Woodstock, your Mom had the big curly perm at the Boss' concerts and you are wearing purple hair highlights in your choppy emo scene hair cut.

Scene hair is as much about fashion as it is about music. Hairstyles are being created around music themes such as indie, emo, heavy metal, and rock.

Scene hair is unique because it means something different to each person. For you, it might mean goth girl meets emo but to your friend it might mean a bed-head indie haircut. Whatever your idea of scene hair, you can find a hot look.

Types of Short Scene Hair

Scene hair is about attitude and expressing a love of individuality. It's the hair to have if you want a unique style because these styles can be personalized and most short scene cuts can be styled many different ways. Since there is no standard scene haircut, scene hair can be achieved through a number of different haircuts and styling techniques.

Popular short scene style elements include:

  • Choppy cuts: Short choppy styles that are teased with a lot of texture work well for scene hair.
  • Chunky layers: Scene hair can incorporate a shaggy look with chunky layers with obvious separation and body.
  • Long bangs: Bangs or fringe that covers both eyes creates popular scene look. The long bangs can also just cover one eye and still achieve the look.
  • Colorful extensions or accessories: Brightly colored hair extensions or a few strategically placed clips, sparkly hair jewelry, or bows can heat up a short scene style.
  • Spiked hair: Spiky hair creates a great scene look for guys.
  • Messy hair: Guys and girls look good with the artfully wild hair.
  • Mixed textures: Straighten the hair by your face and spike up the rest of your hair to mix textures and create dramatic short scene looks.
  • Bright rainbow hair colors: Dye your hair a vivid color like turquoise, hot pink or deep purple. The colors stand out on cute choppy short scene hair. Color your all of your hair or put in streaks of color.
  • Jet black hair: Color your hair as black as night, which looks especially goth scene when contrasted with pale skin.
  • Stick straight: Short, flat-ironed straight hair looks very striking.
