How To Get Scene Hair 
  • In order to have scene layered haircut, you need to grow your hair long enough, so that the bangs reach at least to your cheeks. If you want long bangs, you need to make sure that the hair goes past your chin.
  • You can either get your hair cut professionally or use your own expertise.
  • In case you are cutting the hair yourself, taper the bangs in such a way that they cover only one eye.
  • As for the rest of the hair, ensure that they seem blocky or choppy.
  • The back of the hair should not touch your shoulders. It has to be kept hardly a few inches below your hairline, at the nape of your neck.
  • If you have naturally straight hair, there is no need to worry. If not, then you can either get straightening done or buy a ceramic straightener. While the former will last for quite some months, the latter will have to be used every time you wash your hair.
  • Now is the time to color your hair. The two best options are black and bleached-blonde.
  • After coloring your hair, you will be required to add streaks. For blonde hair, bright blue or pink will look good. In case of black hair, it is best to go for blonde streaks.
  • You can style your emo scene hair further. Using wax, separate the layers piece by piece. With wax covered fingers, and pull down on the hair. The layers will stand separate from one another, looking hot. Use a light hairspray to make the hair stay in place.
