The big, teased scene hairstyles of today often come in exaggerated lengths and vivid contrasting colors, but not every scene kid wants to dye her hair bold or bleach it platinum blond. A brunette might need to keep conservative hair options for work or school, or just isn't into the synthetic color look. Not every girl needs to have super-long, bright hair to get scene drama in her style. Instead, work a short, layered scene haircut sure to make your brown hair stand out from the crowd.
Modern Asymmetrical Bob
This adaptable scene look can be worn sleek and smooth for a girl's everyday situations, then pumped up with volume for a fun night out. The bob parts on the side, with hair that's brushed forward from the crown and covers one eye. These short, side-swept bangs angle down into a shoulder-length style on the large side of the part and a chin-length look on the small side of the part. Rather than a blunt bottom, the cut features textured layers at the cheekbone and eyebrow for a softer style.
A short, shaggy punk look is the scene answer to the mainstream pixie hairstyle. A girl who wants a lot of body in her hair without the length might go for this cut, which features a close-cropped back and a chin-length front. The hair parts on the side and brushes forward over the eye, like many scene styles, with jagged, layered bangs. Thicker layers build up on the sides and in the back, where the hair has an all-over textured, spiked look.
If you like to show off a thicker fringe in the front, a cropped style can be chic. This look includes an extreme side part that's angled toward the center of the crown and short layers in the back and on the sides. The bangs are the real stars of this style, entirely covering one eye in long layers that end at the cheekbone or chin. Razor cutting gives texture to the ends of this look, and it can be teased up with a little hairspray at the roots for volume.
Boyish styles, too, can help a brunette girl show off her scene look without being too blunt. This cut is cropped close to the head in the back, much like a typical men's haircut, but the front features super-long, textured bangs and a stylish side part. Chunky layers cut the style from the cheekbone to the top of the head, creating short, spiked strands at the crown and over the ears. A girl can pull this look into spiky pieces or simple let it settle softly.
