Scene hair and Emo hair have a great deal in common. Many of the styles are virtually identical. However, there are some major differences. Most Emo styles are dyed jet black.
While black plays a large part in scene hairstyles, it is usually offset by bright colors and/or blonde streaks and highlights. Some guys even dye their hair blonde then add color to this. There are several ways to utilize blonde scene hair for guys.
One common use of blonde in scene hair is to completely bleach the natural color out of the hair. One can determine what shade of blonde he wants to achieve, from natural to completely white.
The hair is then cut fairly short in the back and left longer in front to provide bangs that will cover one eye. It is straightened and combed thoroughly, then wax or hair pomade is used to provide hold. Some create spikes using gel.
It is more common to see the hair bleached out, then a bright color is added back to parts of the hair. Neon pink, blue, green, purple, and bright red are commonly combined with the blonde to create the hottest scene hairstyles.
Some go with the jet black dye for the majority of their hair and have blonde streaks or patches bleached. Others have been seen to create a raccoon tail effect alternating blonde and colored or black rings down the length of their hair. This is normally done in the front and on the sides.
Blonde scene hairstyle is usually shorter. However, this is far from a rule or requirement. Boys can grow their hair to any length and style it in any way they desire. The key is to create multiple layers with a razor for enhanced texture.
It is much more common to see the blonde in scene hair than in emo hairstyles. Most emo boys tend toward the gothic, making use of dark colors and a great deal of black. The scene styles do not lean so heavily toward darkness.
They may look similar in the way they are cut and styled, but the coloring is one of the ways to define the difference.
Even when blonde does not become the base color for the style, it is a common component of most scene styles. The most difficult thing is determining the shade one wants and deciding how long to leave the bleaching agent on the hair. It is essential to time this properly as the bleach will damage the hair severely if left in place too long.
Getting blonde hair for guys is usually a multi-step process. Bleaching the hair is a common first step. Next, another color is usually added back to at least a portion of the hair. Other times, the hair is dyed jet black and the portion that one wants to have blonde is bleached out separately.
Either way, care must be exercised in order to avoid chemically damaging the hair and spoiling the style before it is even achieved.
