Since the 2007 downfall of the Scene trend, there are less Scenesters out there. However, it has been picked up by the younger generation. These kids are usually 13-16. Sadly, you may also see 10-12 year olds trying it out, then failing epically. A lot of things are different, yet the foundation of the Scene is mostly the same. MySpace isn't as full of them, but if you look hard enough, you cna come across a few. The msot legitement Scenesters aren't well-known around the interweb.
The first steps of the Scene, sometimes labeled ‘elektrikk’ evolved into ‘br00tal’, which now has come to what I’d call “new age scenesters”.

MUSIC:
2008 = screamo, post-hardcore, electronic/dance, acoustic
AS OPPOSED TO
06/07 = deathcore, grindcore, hardcore
2005 = pop punk, emo

HAIR:
2008 = teased, less crazy and dead bird-like, brown gaining popularity
06/07 = teased to dead bird-like state, strictly black or white blonde
2005 = short, choppy, black

STYLE:
2008 = standard vans/converse, skinny jeans, band t-shirts, graphic/vintage, plastic jewelry, bandanas
06/07 = skin-tight black skinny jeans, black skirts+leggings, plastic jewelry
2005 = (same as 2008 scenesters)

MAKE UP:
2008 = dark eyeliner, colored or no eye shadow
06/07 = black eyeliner, cat-eye or winged out, black eye shadow, fake moles
2005 = (same as 2008 scenesters)

ATTITUDE:
2008 = resembling normal people. some are conceited and pull a “SUP IM BETTA DEN U” move
06/07 = total elitist snobs. Arrogant, cocky, stuck-up, etc. Only talk to people as amazing & trendy
2005 = more snobby than new age scenesters, but not as bad as the br00tal kids.

Many bystanders claim that the Scene is dead and that anyone who still continues to follow it is a try-hard/poseur. However, this is not always the case. Scene is much like the Punk & Goth styles. It hits its peak, witnesses the best of times, but they decline, and fall into near extinction. Same with the Scene trend. The main followers have grown up to be 16, 17, and 18 year olds who no longer take part in compulsive hair coloring or MySpace whoring. However, the younger generation continues to keep it alive for a few last breaths of air.
I dont think I need an example. That whole Scene comparison thing should be good enough.

Scene kids wear tight jeans, band T-Shirts like Escape The Fate or My Chemical Romance. They wear converse or checkered vans, hair that is parted to one side covering one eye(normally black or really light blonde) belts with studs in them(normally white). Scene kids are NOT emo but have basically adopted the emo style without taking the whole (OMG my life is so horrible /cry nobody loves me /cuts wrist) type of bullshit.
Scene Kid - dude aren't my tight jeans, checkered vans, and Escape the Fate Tshirt so cool.

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.

Scene has many many definitions,
But the term "scene" or "scenester" that I am about to explain is "scene" as in THE SCENESTERS.
The world of the scene is about un-original children who claim a mouth less kitten as their own, as well as worship it. Their hair is very un-original because they stole harajuku, decora, J-rock, and ganguro styles from japan. But mainly they steal hairstyles from J-Rocker's and claim it as their own. They ALL dress the same and claim to be original. Audrey Kitching is their second god, as well as the whole trasy life talk. Kiki Kannibal thinks she is the shit, just because she has a bajillion "fake" friends. That doesn't make her famous. Fame is earned through REAL life through REAL efforts, and NO being a model that is alternative is not at the top. It just means you're getting there bot not almost. Flailing limbs all over the place is NOT called dancing (though it is entertaining). The scene used to be about original kids who dressed and acted however they want.
Heck I used to be scene but I was ALWAYS original and tried to set trends, and still do. If you enjoy art and like to create clothes then do it!! Instead of always going to Urban Outfitters and buy a shirt you like because your friend had it. NO! Be original, not a clone!!
And I am not hating on anyone but this NEW scene trend is starting to tick me off. I am sick and tired of seeing half-naked girls on their profile. And yes, the people you should worship are REAL models like Kate Moss, Iman, Tyra Banks, and so on.
oh and who said you have to have straight hair to be scene??

Here are ORIGINAL scenesters that I bet you can enjoy and make friends with, they indeed are not assholes and since they have a LOT of friends they take a while to respond back.

1)the word "scene" can refer to anyone who's into a particular type of music, usually emo, screamo, hardcore, metal, maybe indie, or punk of some sort, and the "scene" around it.
It is often used to refer to kids, mostly between the age range of 14 and 24, who listen to these types of music. Stereotypically, these kids have short often dark hair, often chopped up or hanging around their faces. They tend to go to a lot of concerts and listen to their favorite bands a lot. They often listen to small, obscure, or local bands no one else has ever heard of. They may also maintain a myspace where they often will post pictures of themselves. This whole movement used to be counter-culturish but now has become mainstream to a point. Some people tend to make unfair judgements about scene people, and while some of them could very well be jerks the majority of them probably aren't.
2) the culture and group of people surrounding a style of music
1) That kid goes to a lot of concerts. He's definitely scene.
2) The punk rock scene has gotten kinda stale lately. Too many of these bands sound the same.
