What is it with dudes and short hair? Read More »

Brooklyn, she is a squirrely strange beast. A land of artisinal cheeses and small-batch decorative axes. She is also a land where men occasionally deign to tuck their long hair into buns. This is newsworthy, so says The New York Times, which has devoted more than a thousand words to exploring the not-actually-a-trend tremd.

Field Guide: Scene Kid Hair

We need to talk about scene kid hair. I know this conflagration of wild color, straight ironing and intense bangs isn’t a new thing, but I’m a million years old, and I continue to be amazed and frightened by what teenagers do to themselves. You may be wondering: what’s a scene kid? Isn’t the term “scene” used to describe any specific genre of music listener? Not so! In this case, scene refers to kids that listen to a particular genre of music dubbed “scene” music, best categorized as “screamo/emo,” and exemplified by absolutely horrifying bands like Hawthorne Heights and Brokencyde, which are truly, truly the worst. Okay, I’m a little obsessed with Brokencyde.  

Scene kids give themselves stupid nicknames like Jeffree Star, Kiki Cannibal or Dani Gore. They wear a lot of eyeliner and skinny jeans. And they do a lot of online journaling and YouTubing. If you’re still confused, go to the mall and ask the teenager working at the Journeys or the As Seen On TV kiosk. 

Keep clicking for 10 definitive markers of Scene Kid Hair, to better recognize when you yourself might be in the presence of a real, live scene child. Enjoy!

Years later, I have a love-hate relationship with them. I keep cutting ‘em, growing ‘em in, and cutting them again. But I want to tell you this: curly-head bangs can be HOT.

This week, I’ve gathered photos from across the web to show you how it can be done. Whether you want curly bangs, bangs you have to straighten (which we’re so not used to, since our curls are so naturally gorge!!), or you’re ready to grow them out, here’s the how-to! Read more
