The most popular definitions need to be updated a little bit. Because at this point in time october 2007 thats more like a wannabe scene kid/emo kid.
And I don't like labels too much, but come on. Don't pretend you don't do it.

I don't care what the roots are of scene, this is UrbanDictionary, and we're concerned about modern shit not going back ten years.
Scene kids are rich. Or they might not be rich, it doesn't matter. They buy exspensive shit and still look like trash.
You pay money to look like dirt when you're a scene kid. And yes, its stylish. Whether you like it or not. I really don't get why its so wonderful to look trashy.
Not all scene kids are trashy. Some of them are just Urban Outfitter whores and seem trashy, but thats just fashion and they look more like bums than trash.
And even then there's some who don't look like bums or trashy. Its a very narrow yet broad spectrum.
And thats just their clothes.
Usually a scene girls hair is long underneath and very big and layered on top. Some examples of this are Mother Fucking Aly and Amor Hilton. While Aly's hair is poofy and big on top its not like Amor's, which almost looks like a rats nest, but in a good way.
Typical scene boy hair is about shoulder length, and very smooth and shiny. Some use product, some don't, but almost all scene kids straighten their hair. And if they don't, they must have some bomb ass hair to pull of not straightening it.
Now to the most key things in a scene kids existence: their myspace. There are not a million graphics, there are no links to graphics sites; they either do it themselves or have other people do it. Very clean cut, nice and put together. Usually have comment, message and add buttons and contact table is hidden along with their extended network box, blogs, and song. Some have their friends and comments hidden, others don't. Some opt to just show their friend and comment count.
Camera phone pictures are okay as long as you're hot.
High quality picture are preffered, photoshopped or not. Medium quality are alright as long as they're highly photoshopped.
Headbands, cigarettes, brass knuckles, diamond and bat necklaces, gloomy bear, hello kitty or any other sanrio character, and recently weight lifter things are popular in pictures. Just make is scene, make it work.
If you're a girl, you are basically required to have raccoon eyes. If you don't, you better have at least some makeup on. And fake eyelashes. When you look down, it better look like a damn box. Monroe and septum piercings are ideal for you, as well as angel bites. Gauges are welcome, but too big and you just look trashy. Too small and you look like a pussy.
Boys usually will wear some form of makeup, whether its foundation or a little bit of eyeliner. Their ears better be stretched to at least 5/8 of and inch, and if they aren't they shouldn't be pierced at all. Monroe, septum, snake bites, spider bite, bridge and middle lip piercings are the best for boys. Don't do overkill though, its ugly.
And sidekicks. The Sidekick is a scene kids best friend. Now more available because of the new Sidekick iD which is much cheaper than the D-Wade SK or the SK3, a SK is key in your scene being. What would you do without being able to text David Dior at the Bring Me The Horizon concert which you go to a lot, shows are also your best friend. Useful for networking with fellow scene kids and check your MySpace on the go? Nothing, thats what.
You don't always have to be a bitch, but you must be confident. If you aren't, you are not a scene kid, and you lose at life.
YOU NEED TO KNOW PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD. Scene kids have a very wide network, and have often never even met their best friend who lives five thousand miles away. If you are a scene kid, you have a best friend in a different state or country. They'll probably never meet this person.

Ew. What a dirty.

scene happens to be a very popular trend right now. it's funny because the "scene" was made for people who're original and don't follow the crowd but set their own trends. so why is it that all scene people are exactly the same? oh no, i understand, one day you just decided that robots, dinosaurs, and guns were "hella raddd" scene kids like their lightening to be "electrikk" and their guns go "bangbang" and shoot out hearts, stars, or rainbows. they say they're just original yet they're all exact copies of one another.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A SCENE BOY:
-tight pants
-SEXX hair that covers most of their face but not their awesome lip ring or snake bites
-tight band t-shirt
-two possibilities for jackets: a big one with a furry hood or a tight one, usually black and for a band.
-converse
-eyeliner
-they'l be surrounded by a lot of other scene boys and girls

HOW TO IDENTIFY A SCENE GIRL:
-short choppy hair, usually black. most of the time they'll be random pieces that are white, platinum blonde, or a neon color
-always dressed in black and then a lot of bright colors, usually hot pink or lime green
-TONS of makeup. a lot of black eyeliner followed by a metallic color like a teal or pink for eyeshadow.
-they'll probably be wearing a brightly colored bandana around their "SEXX HAIR"
-if they don't have a bandana they'll be wearing a bow made for little girls or a brightly colored headband
-when they wear bracelets, it's not just one, it's about 50 on each arm and they're "sexx bracelets" and cheap plastic bracelets they think are cute from 25cent machines and stores like "CLAIRES"
-super tight jeans that go straight down (no flare)
-neon flats, those flat "stretch-like sneaker" with no laces
-surrounded by tons of clones (other "scenesters")

TYPICAL INTERESTS OF SCENE KIDS:
-robots
-dinosaurs (they often like to mimic them by saying "rawr" and "grr" ALL the time)
-ELECTRIKK lightning
-guns
-bright colors
-taking millions of themselves using "the angles"
-using photoshop to make the pictures "THE SEXX"
-myspace, myspace, and myspace. they're usually what people call "myspace whores" and they add millions of "original people" just like them and get people to add and comment them
-fingerless gloves, preferably black. (the scenesters who try really hard to be scene cut them themselves)
-the scene vegetarians and vegans are only like that because it's cool, they could care less about the animals
-they're so sxe (straight edge) and like to signify that by drawing big XXX's on their hands
-they go to tons of shows, usually in their area. most of the time they don't even know the band, they just wanna go in the pit and show off their hxc dancing and skank.
-they like using words like "hella," "hawt," and "cunt" (a lot). they type in LEET, like "WER G0IING_2 TH3 HXC ROCKSH00W &&_& TH3N G0ING 0UT 4 TACOZZ" yet they claim they hate it when people "tyPpee LyKk diSs."
-they only listen to THEIR music, any other music sucks.

Basically, scenesters are attention whores and hypocrits. they're fake and self-centered.
jenna: "HEYYY GURLLIE, me &&_andreaa r g0ing 2 tehh HXC_R0CKSH0WW lat3rr on and it would be TEHH_SEXX if u could cum && wen we M33T UP ii can sh0ww u the pictures i t00k BE4 4 MY_SPACE withh mi N3W ELECTRIKK BLUEE HIGHLITESS. ITLL BE TEHH SEXX S0 CYAA LATAA xCUNTxFACEx"

and... (&&)

laurin: "OMFGAWWDZZ N0WAYZZ, THAT NEW PIERCING IS TEH SEXX, U DID IT YRSELFF? THATSS S0 HELLA HAWTZZ OMFGS LAWLZ, SEXX ME CUNTWHORE UZ R SO SCENE"

-they basically love to be unique and have the center of attention and they love to be as "unique" as possible, (while at the same time they are making themselves a clique,)

*not to be confused with emo, although the scene and emo defining line is not completely clear*

-they often have many hair colors at one time.short and spiky on one side, and long bangs on the other side.

---trends with "scene people" right now: strange fascination with dinosaurs and saying "rawr", childrens hair bows and headbands, plastic bright colored jewlry, leggings matched with vintage skirts and old shirts, messager bands with pins on the strap, plaid pants, long bead necklaces, sayings like " he's a cool kid. "
scene person conversation--

person 1-- you are so rad
person 2-- well you are a cool kid
person 1--- well, rawr im a dinosaur how can't i be cool
person 2- *laughs*

One of the latest trend or style.
Some scene girls and boys tend to use black and short hair. They cut it themselves to make it look messy but tidy.
If they have a myspace, all they're pictures are from every possible angle. They like to take black and white pictures of themselves, too.
When they type, instead of writing "and..." they use "&&...". They love to use "gangsta" chatspeak and in their space they have at least 1 "gangsturr" picture. They usually don't use capitalization, correct grammar and periods.
Scene people use colored clothes, generally with prints saying "bang", "gun", etc. And wear tight pants, generally ragged on some parts.
They also love colored plastic pearls-made necklaces and piercings. Most of the time they like to act childish.
They like children's stuff like little girls hair accesories, dinosaurs,etc.
Some of them like to pretend being a "ninja".
Being scene means tons of make-up, specially on the eyes. Some may use the "doll" look, a white face, with red cheeks.
Check out myspace to see some scene people.

The lamest movement of anything ever. A movement of conformists for the sake of individuality. An oxymoron so wrapped up in itself that it can't even see how fake it is.
Joan: Ann, we're so scene, we should come with a warning!
Me: Get a life, please.

Like emo, just NEON

Scene kids are also generally louder than your average emo, choosing also to be vegan or straight edge because it sounds good, rather then they know what it means.
They have to be scene KIDS because, let's face it, scene GUY/CHICK/PERSON doesn't sound as good.
Can often be found wearing over priced plastic jewellery and tiny bows in the hair on girls.
Hell, the guys probably wear them too.

Don't get me wrong, i have no problem with scene kids, i'm just pissed at the one that smacked me in the face for no reason.
I'm so scene I bleed neon.

all these definitions are disgusting. why does scene have to include a million definitons of people saying that scene people are "obnoxious", "self centered", "pretentious" or "egotistic". Why must people be categorized like that?

to me: scene is a movement. it's when a group of people who happen to like similar kinds of music and fashion (and many other things)come together. Consequently scenesters like to express themselves however they want to in relationship to the music or their interests. who cares how they dress, or talk, or feel. Everyone should dress how they like, talk how they want to, and feel what ever they damn well please.

how is scene any different than any other label? Jock, prep, girly, hick... If you want to label a group, fine. But don't put down a group of people for what they like just because they "annoy" you or because you don't understand them. Maybe you annoy the fuck out of someone else but they're not rude enough to label you as a piece of shit.
"That girl is so scene, that guy is such a jock, those brothers are so preppy. They're probably all really nice. Maybe i should go introduce myself and get to know them."

An artistic/creative environment and the trends and subcultures associated with it.
At one time, New York had a flourishing Jazz Scene.
