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.

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 …
Let’s be honest, the way your hair looks can make or break your day. Ladies who wear short styles aren’t entirely exempt from the universal bad hair day, but the odds are more for than against them. Once your hair hits shoulder length, it tends to have a mind of its own. Longer hair is also more prone to damage and breaks, which is never a good look. Crispy frayed ends must be trimmed faster than they appear, lest they make their way up the hair shaft. Certainly silicone serums and leave-in conditioners lend the appearance of healthier, more put-together hair, but they can actually do more harm than good to your crowning glory in the long run. I’m no scientist, but I am pretty well-versed in hair knowledge, if I do say so myself. Here’s how to get longer, stronger, healthier hair in 2012. Keep reading »
