No I don't see it that much. Sure it is more than before but I don't see it enough to consider a trend. At least not here. I don't find it to attractive you have to be really hot for me to consider you hot as an emo kid.
Scene has been the 'IN' thing since I started high school like 6 years ago, haha. It's really nothing new, but I guess it depends on where you live, and your age group. Where I live, it's still a big thing with people in your age group, or high school kids in general. But most people I know that are my age, who were into it when we were in high school, have grown out of it or evolved from it into more of their own thing. I know almost no people my age who are just now getting into it, or who are still into it if they ever were.
about a year ago, in my town, it was really 'popular' to be a scene or emo kid. so many people changed their look to have the side bang that cover your eyes and what not. it's died down a bit but people still think it's so cool to have a scene/emo haircut. you definitely aren't the only one. :)
I see it around a lot too, especially in high school. I think they're going for more of a hardcore look, it can be attractive depending on the person but sometimes it's a bit too much. But people have all rights to wear what they feel comfortable in.
