In this day and time, the word 'scene' is another stereotype that generally describes a male or female that believe they are more 'different' or 'unique' in a crowd of people. In actuality, though, 'scenesters'(as they're more commonly referred as) are only judging themselves by another teenage stereotype, and can't actually be 'unique' since teenagers across the world try to pull of the trend.
This stereotype is modeled mostly by models such as Kiki Kannibal, Audrey Kitching, Hannabeth, Zui Suicide, etc, and as mentioned before, teenagers varying from 12-21 try to pull off this trend that mentioned models have succeeded in pulling off.
To become a scenester, it's very common to have fried black or platinum blonde hair with different sort of extensions or coon tails placed all over their hair. Usually girls who try to pull of the scene style tend to 'tease' their hair, by simply back brushing their short layers with a teasing comb. Guys, as well, usually stick to blond or black hair, that is usually combed over one eye or perhaps even both. Though it is not frowned upon, most 'scene guys' tend not to color their hair like the girls do, although it is used.
Most people who try to pull of the style try to pierce their face(usually piercings such as septums, snakebites, angelbites, nose rings, or lip rings), though a lot of scenesters choose not to damage their face with piercing rings. Even though body jewelry usually bolds the scene look, most of the time, scene girls tend to make up for the loss of piercings with overdoing their hair moreso.
People who are scene usually wear a lot of make-up, which, a lot of the time, consists of lots of eyeliner. Scene girls usually also prefer to wear fake eyelashes, while guys stick to either eyeliner or natural. Girls, though, tend to overdo themeselves with a lot of eyeliner, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer(to, most of the time, appear paler).
To become scene, most of the clothes scene girls and guys dress in are skinny jeans(which can be purchased in any Pacific Sunwear, Hot Topic, Zumiez, etc) that differentiate from black to bright neon yellow. Also, scenesters like to wear band shirts or bright shirts or jackets; as long as it's abnormally bright or black, usually scene kids wouldn't mind wearing it.
Girls, moreso then guys, usually have an unnerving fascination with 'Hello Kitty', and express this by wearing HK necklaces, bracelets, T-Shirts, etc, while posting pictures of HK on their myspace or facebook.
Both, guys and girls, try to listen to music that is under the 'screamo' or 'crunk' category. A lot of the times, scene kids like to listen to hardcore rap as well as hardcore music to wider their selection. Some of the music most commonly listening to by scenesters are bands like: Brokencyde, Chiodos, Bring Me The Horizon, Lil Wayne, and The Devil Wears Prada; as I mentioned before, anything defined under the 'crunk', 'hardcore rap', or 'hardcore screaming' category is most likely what you would find on a scenester's iPod or Zune.
Besides all of the typical scene trend, scenesters also ALWAYS have myspaces, always decorating their pages with junky pictures of their hobbies, or about themselves, along with their 'state' in their display name(example, a scene kid would most likely put say, NJ, after their name on mysace). Scene kids also take a lot of pictures, but put on only the good ones they believe will get them an ample amount of comments(usually aiming to get 30 or up), always asking to do pc4pc(picture comment for picture comment) with others so they could get more photo comments.
It's not unusual to see if a scene kid smokes marijuana, cigarettes, or drinks alcohol. Though a good half of them actually tend to stay away from drugs, the other half usually obsess about the drug they take. To express this, they try to usually put it on their myspace or instant messaging profile. As I said before, not every scenester smokes, but at the same, it isn't uncommon.
Basically, if you don't have a good idea what a scene girl/boy seems like at the moment, it'd be best if you went on 'google' and typed it in under images. If you want to be scene? Good for you, and good luck with it.
Teenager One: Wow, Kiki Kannibal is super pretty! I think it may be because of her scene trend, I think I will try to be scene now too!
Teenager Two: Sure, good luck with that. Loose your originality and uniqueness young to become a scenester; that's fine with me.
