Along with the stuff I mentioned above scene kids are also, roughly by 25%, a branch from another trend (that you all know of) known as Emo. This means, along with the defined above, scene kids are also defined by: skinny jeans (mainly black and also tighter), band t-shirts (tight as well), studded belts, snakebite piercings, and black horn-rimmed glasses. Now please don’t get the two trends confused. What males them different, for the most part, is the fact emo kids are known to be depressed/sad (for some strange reason) while scene kids are the opposite.
From reading above you’re 50% on your way to knowing what being scene really is. Scene kids, like emo kids, are fixed around the color black though scene kids are also fixed around bright colors too (as in neon). Scene kids have fads, mean things that come and go, that include: having a profile on multiple social networks (myspace, bebo, etc), being a vegetarian, text talk (l33t style) and being straight-edge. While 98% scene kids do this, this is NOT required to be scene.
What really makes you scene is your hairstyle and your music. Now I’m not telling you to just go and change what you listen to for scene reasons (because what you like is what you like), though I do prefer listening to bands that are also scene. As a scene kid it is a must that you go to shows (as in concerts), even if the band isn’t mainstream or you don’t know the band (meaning local and unheard of). Lastly KNOW YOUR MUSIC; it’s a must. Scene hairstyles are mostly straightened (and dyed black) and choppy (as in cut with razor comb) and has bright dye in certain parts (some temp, some perm).
Now to finally clear it EVERYTHING! Saying your scene doesn’t make you a poser. If someone ask, you say “Yeah I’m Scene”. This is to prevent people stereotyping you calling you a liar and hypocrite (for calling people posers of scene when your scene too). Changing overnight doesn’t make you a poser; clothes are clothes and a trend is a trend. To finalize this, being scene is like being a preppy kid or a goth kid. It all revolves around fashion (clothes and music). I want to state just because you follow a trend doesn’t mean you change your personality. Be yourself, there is only one of you.
For boys, it's pretty much the same, however, instead of flats, they're inclined to wear skate shoes, and large "gangster" hats are popular as well. Both genders tend to have lots of piercings, such as a septum, monroe, and the less popular septum. Mostly, they've got a piercing on one side of their lip, and gauges in their ears. Scene boys hair is more often a plain color, such as black or red or brown, as opposed to the myriad of colors that girls can covet. Both usually possess choppy, over-one-eye hairstyles, though they sometimes have mod bangs, too.
Boys can wear eyeliner, though it isnt as encouraged as it is in the emo culture, and girls wear as much or as little as they please. Scene girls are also pretty obsessed with designer labels, such as Chanel and Dolce & Gabanna. Also, both can be seen wearing clothes from stores such as Hollister and Abercrombie. Sidekick 3's are very often used by scene kids. Scene boys are usually a lot less nice than scene girls, though, obviously, it depends on the person. Straight edge is becoming less and less trendy, though a lot of scenesters still are. Christianity and vegetarianism are both pretty trendy, however.
Emo kids and scene kids are completely different, and are not to be confused. Scene kids are more into the 'local scene,' and to the majority of them, music means everything. They'll always be spotted at local shows, concerts, coffeeshops, etc. Scene girls are usually obsessed with fashion, and fashion magazines (i.e. Vogue, and Teen Vogue). Fake eyelashes are also highly associated with scene girls, and they often shave off their eyebrows and pencil them on. Why, you ask? Nobody knows. False nails, and being extremely pale are pretty scene as well. Also, scene kids will always, always, always deny that they are scene. That's one of the many ways you can spot a poseur. After all, real scene kids are too scene to admit that they're scene.
Energy drinks are also highly popular with them, as well as Glaceau Vitamin Water. They also are prone to saying things such as "wdup blud," and "lawlz." Pretending to be a gangster is a big part of the scene image, and many scene kids even listen to rap. But it doesn't make them any less scene! Scene kids always have a myspace, or a xanga, or a facebook, or all three, as well. Their myspace display names are usually something along the lines of "______ Murder," "______ Homicide," etc, etc, though it varies with the person.
Myspace pages of theirs are often filled with songs that used to be popular, (i.e. Tainted Love, All the Small Things, and old rap songs-- you get the picture) and numerous photographs of their favorite designer logo, their alcoholic beverage of choice, and their cell phone. Hello Kitty is also highly popular with girls, as well as coloring books, black and white photographs, and a cityscape photograph. For boys, they often have pictures of admiring scene girls who make them signs, banners for bands that they like, and an energy drink they love.
in conclusion, scene kids r rad! lolz.

SceneKidOne: I love Scene Kids, Especially the girls man, they are HAWT!
i know a few scene kids, and i can asure you they are as normal as you and me...they just look different.
a scene girls hair: has choppy (mostly black) hair. other colors mixed in are common, like hot pink, red, blonde. little girl bows, and bangs at an angle covering one eye.
clothes: are usually more diverse. black and brilliant colors (i suppose a lot like the hair).
slip on shoes (mostly checkered), or converse. black/ white studded belt. sometimes multiple belts.
make up: eye liner is a must BLACK EYELINER and lots of it. bright shades of eyeshoadow usually. sometimes stars on the face.
...that is the style of a scene girl, but the idea of being "scene" is usually knowing a lot about the local music scene. thus, the many band shirts and death grip on their ipod.
favoring unknown bands, and not wanting you to know about them, sayong they began some scene revolution style, and getting pissy when they are copied in makeup or anything, are annoying traits that most all scene kids carry. not to mention that almost everything they do is "hardXcore" and that YOU are always a poser, if you say you even like dinosaurs.
they must have a myspace, become picture whores, and
scn grl #2: "yea, the girl with the black and pink hair with the bows in it?"
#1: "yea, she is such a poser. i was the first one to even wear those at this school!"
#2: "no i was!"
#1: "we are so scene kids."
#2: "we are so the sexx."
usually they wear tight jeans ( both sexes) black shaggy hair parted to the side. chucks backwards belts and tight band shirts.some of the girls like to wear little kid hair clips and hairbands and most scene kids also wear a bandana in the back pocket or around there neck.
scene kids go to shows and usually act and talk gangster.
"Bang ur dead"
lyke oh em gee im lyke soooo hardXcore.
