Indie Kid Indie Boys tend to be skinny, shy, with messy hair and a fringe. The hair must not be confused with emo hair, which is styled using disturbing quantities of gel, wax, mousse and hairspray. Indie boys just can't be arsed to brush. Skinny jeans are more typical of the scene kid, Indie boys prefer fairly loose fitting denim. A plain t-shirt or shirt are very popular, along with ancient battered converse, in black or blue. Indie kids are friendly, cheerful and actually surprisingly non-elitist; I, as an Indie Kid have many a time got down to the funky sounds of Snoop Dogg.
