There is no better way to reveal yourself than through expressive scene hair. Inspired by both shag and mullet styles, the classic scene hairstyle is full and thick around the face with choppy layers and long bangs characterized by long, thin layers worn underneath. There are, however, many variations on this look for different hair textures and short lengths like cool, edgy pixies for every babe to try.
How to Style Scene Hair
Regardless of whether your scene style is short or long, you’ll want to focus on one feature in particular: choppy layers. Even if you have curls, the hair at the top of your head should be the fullest. If you’re looking to style scene hairstyle, it’s important to remember to create height at the top of the head. When hair is wet, spray on a root lifter or volumizer and focus on the roots. Add any serums or heat protectors at this point, if they are made for wet hair.
Next, you will want to blow all of your hair straight with a blow dryer to avoid too much flat ironing. Even though the heat from blow dryers can cause damage, straighteners typically wreak the most havoc, thanks to their intense heat. Once you’ve blow-dried all of your hair, it’s time to straighten all of those fun, choppy layers.
Once hair is straight, focus on creating, even more, lift around the face and on the top of the head. Use a fine-tooth comb to tease hair so that the short layers up top lift up. Adding hairspray before teasing is often a good idea to create that perfect hold. To tease, take a small portion of hair and hold it up. Take the comb and gently run it downwards through the hair. Do not be aggressive to avoid creating any knots. When done right, teasing, or backcombing, as it’s also called, should be able to be brushed out with ease.
Once you’ve teased your hair, you’ll want to smooth down the outermost layer for a polished effect. Teasing should be treated as a boosting style, not one you want to display. Before your styling is complete, you may need to add a touch of baby powder or dry shampoo to keep the height going.
Curious about what different scene hairstyles have to offer? Below are 35 looks that are as unique as you are.
1. Scene Bob Style
Long lengths are typically a no-go for the scene girl with thin hair because hair can appear limp and stringy. A cute bob length, however, is very flattering. Make choppy layers on the bottom of the hair for a scene vibe.
2. Spiky Scene Pixie
Even if your brown scene hair is short, you can still create those signature bangs and straight, choppy layers. Make a side part and use a razor to cut hair on the opposite side of the head. Spike hair up in the opposite corner for a funky effect.
3. Face-Framing Highlights
Many medium scene hair looks use bright and bold colors to make a statement. If you crave a splash of style as opposed to all-over color, focus your favorite hue to the bangs and front layers of the face to display the color best.
4. Shaved Temples
Combining retro and modern styles is very edgy, making it ideal for Asian scene hair. Create a 50s style roll at the top of the forehead and pair with super cool shaved temples and a long, thin side burn detail.
5. Vibrant Dreads
Even dreadlocks can embody the scene aesthetic. Also a highly individualistic style, dreadlocks are the perfect accompaniment to short, wispy layers and choppy bangs surrounding the face.
