Punk and alternative styles were common by 1996, including short, spiky hair, black t-shirts, black work pants, wraparound sunglasses, and skater shoes. Many punk and alternative teenagers dyed their hair colours like blue, green, and fuchsia.

The Punk and goth styles survived into the 2000s in modified forms. The emo fashion slightly entered the mainstream in 1998-1999. It featured tight, black drain-pipe jeans, rock band t-shirts, and long hair in a form of a sidebang.
