If your school is strict and extreme hair colors are not allowed, you can still have a scene haircut, whether your hair is short or long. The trick is in the styling. You could still have the layers but have it in moderation and thinning the ends of the bangs, if you want to have a fringe and the ends of the longer hair. Rather than going for bright colors as highlights, choose lighter streaks that would look natural. With just a few streaks it would be easy to hide them when you tie your hair in a ponytail. For parties, use colored clip on hair extensions, so that you can still enjoy colored hair at times. What’s great about this style is that you could experiment with different colors without damaging your hair. Bold accessories would also give you additional color for your scene hair.
