permalink Hey Jpoppers! Need some help! I'm currently doing some research for a blog post on the Gyaru subculture. I've found tons of information on the net, but it would be awesome to get some perspectives on here. Has anyone tried replicating the Gyaru style? Do you know anyone who dresses Gyaru?

My first impression of the style was huge eyes/blonde hair, but there are seriously a wide variety of Gyaru types.

The type I find most intriguing is the Ganguro style:

My favorite Gyaru style is almost opposite to the Ganguro girl I posted before, this is the hime-gyaru or Princess Gyaru.

I've read about some girls sacrificing careers (ending up working at retail shops etc) just to keep this look up. I find it fascinating. They even have their own slang words (Agepoyo, anyone?)

What do you all think of Gyarus?

permalink Gyaru, while still around in Japan, is really dying out. It's a lot more toned down now.

I recently went on a little internet adventure, trying look for blogs that had Gyaru/Ganguro inspired dress. I found quite a good one (I provide the link below.) Unfortunately, it's in French. So for all you non-French speakers it might be a bit of pain to navigate, but the picture are still quite good and she updates often.

permalink I have mixed feelings about gyaru. In a way, it's a style that requires a lot of effort to make and expresses the individual standing point.
On the "dark side", it's a form of consumism that sometimes go to extremes of self-prostituition cases. O.O

permalink I really like Gyaru, I think it's adorable and I'm jealous of anyone who can pull it off. Personally, I can't but I think it looks adorable, but I despise the Ganguro look. It just looks really awful to me, although I can understand why others like it, I do not. :)

permalink I like it a lot but the only let down for me is that I don't loook good with a dark skin xD I also won't tan myself since it's bothersome, apart from that I love the style :)

I love Harutama from Black Diamond!http://62.media.tumblr.com/4d43c7da7eee7b39b8dda5a2bc71497b/tumblr_nr33owIfcy1tkxxxbo1_500.jpg

permalink I think gyaru is a pretty great and unique fashion style, however it probably wouldn't be a style I would ever wear. I have a pretty bad complex over my dark skin, so i'm constantly wearing lighter makeup.

permalink I think gyarus are super cute :3 Especially hime gyarus
My own style is kinda inspired by gyaru-o style (and goshikku gyaru/rokku gyaru) ;3

permalink I think the Ganguro style is a little strange. They should just naturally bronze their skin. Also, even though I love Coco Channel and Rococobto pieces the name Lolita has a bad reference to abuse. Gyaru should stay as it originally was and not blend itself with the Lolita styles so much.
