Types Of Gyaru~

Good day sunshines,
How are you all feeling today? I'm fine, i'm finally able to check something off my summer list
Finish watching Season 6 &7 of how I met your mother
anyway,as i have previously mention in past posts i follow the fashion trend of Gyaru. 

 What is Gyaru you ask? It is the fashion style that Japanese girls follow, gyaru stands for "gal". The look consists of Circle lens, false lashes, good clothes, high heels ( not necessary), blinged phones or gadgets, nails and to know what style you are going to follow. Gyaru is inspired by western fashion and many girls from other countries are following the gyaru trend.

Now for the categories:
It is similar to casual american style basically ^_^. Tan isn't required and you can usually find pictures in egg magazine, a popular brand is cocolulu

It's for girls who decide to dress like singer Nami Amuro,light brown slightly curly hair and short skirts with high boots sexy~

This is for girls that like to dress like hip-hop, beenies, bling on, in general dance style clothing. ;P 
FACT: In Shibuya the Hime gyaru and B-gals DON"T hang out in the same places!

It is the normal bohemian looks, vests ,loose fitting clothes,perhaps fur just with lashes and lenses ^_-

I already explained this fashion trend but any how~ They usually have tanned skin and bleach (or othe colored) hair, bright clothes and outstanding make-up!(link: )

Hime Gyaru:
The most cutest thing yet!They usually have really big and pooffy curly hair,high heels,long gel/acrylic nails and in general look like little princesses
POINT: "hime" means "princess", but just because you look like one, don't mean you act like one girl~ xD

Hime kaji:
It's the more toned down version of hime gyaru, more toned down clothing,hair etc.

It's for the school girls that carry off the gyaru look at school with bow ties,cute socks,accessories,hair,nails etc., but acceptable for schools. My friends call it the "hentai look" but basically it kind of is (not hating i loooove it!)

I explained it again before.Manba and Yamanba are like ganguro basically, the are sub-groups.( link)
POINT:Difference between yamanba and manba,manba has white eye make-up below the eye also.DO NOT CONFUSE THEM! If you do you might get beat to death with a stick O.O

Mode Gyaru:
My personal FAV! It's basically sticking to colors like black and white but you can mix in other colors.Best shop for mode gyaru is EMODA (<3) and the model below is cheesie. She is a blogger and my idol :'),i have followed her blog forever and i looove her fashion style plus she inspired me to be a blogger( anyway continuing from the fan moment.

It's the girls who graduated from the gyaru style into a more mature version of gyaru.They dress more elegantly and softly,less dramatic (love<3)

For girls who want to look rockish with the gyaru zing! to it.Dark clothing,make-up and accessories. Super sexy and gothic~

Elegant and romantic look.Sweet subtle clothing and hair,make-up.

Explained(link: to Ganguro.Bleach(colorful)hair,bright clothes,outstanding make-up.
NOTE: Nowadays it's a lot easier to spot a manba instead of a yamanba.

Since I don't actually live in Japan, I don't know all the gyaru types,but here are the most popular ones that I could find.
 Anyway so that's all for this post. Hope you enjoyed it and coming up a contact lens review (hopefully) but i'm going to be busy packing for my trip to Dubai (yay!) so I probably won't blog as much.
Anyway byebye
