Gyarus clothing influenced from their fashion Magazines. First, Gyaru became known in 80's. The Girls in the cities of that period were Influenced by Materialism at the height of Japan's economic growth. They realize that appearances can be used to obtain the material they desire. Some of them appear as boyish girls and less able to hang out with female friends the same age, but men apparently still like them. Gyaru can be recognized from their dark-brown skin, the results of Tanning in Salon. Dark skin trend originally came from Los Angeles is synonymous with beach culture and surfing.

Gyarus have various subcategories too, depends to choice of fashions and gender. (Source Wikipedia)

  1. Gyaru-kei (ギャル系): Basically the default gyaru style. It is an umbrella term for the many subcategories or themes of gal styles.
  2. Bibinba (ビビンバ): This look usually includes a lot of gold, and jewelry. Similar to b-gal. It was said to be a joke in Egg magazine about this style, and was not a serious style.
  3. Banba (バンバ): Banba is a lighter form of manba. Banbas wear less white makeup than manbas; they also use more glitter, and may or may not have neon colored hair. Banbas wear more extreme-looking types of false eyelashes, and colored contact lenses. Banbas wear darker colors than manbas, and sometimes dress in club wear. The most respected banba Gal-cir is Angeleek; there are 22 members in the Tokyo group, and they have many other groups throughout Japan.
  4. Hime gyaru : Also known as Hime kei. It is the most over the top and expensive of all of the categories. The hime style is largely based on the Rococo era. Gyarus of this style wear dresses or skirts in pink or other pastels with lots of lace and bows. Rose patterns, pearls and crown motifs are also very common. Headpieces range from large bow clips with pearls to rose headdresses, while the hair is either bleached, poofed up in a bouffant at the top and curled or a wig/extensions are worn. The make-up style has even more exaggerated eyes than the typical gyaru. Hime gyaru does not only include clothes, but many girls see it as a way of life and make or buy custom-made decor for their homes. The style blossomed in the early 2000's but has since declined or turned more casual (this version is referred to as hime kajii), even if the old one is still present. Not to be confused with Lolita fashion.
  5. Ganguro (ガングロギャル): A gyaru with an artificial deep tan and bleached hair. This style was popular in the late 1990s, and early 2000s.
  6. Western gyaru, Amerigyaru, etc Girls and also guys who have found gyaru fashion outside of Japan (Spain, Finland, Canada, America). They have their own communities, and forums to help beginner gyaru and to meet up with each other during travel. They also use the forums to connect with each other in their own states as well.
  7. Gyaruo (ギャル男): A male gyaru.
  8. Kogyaru: Generally a high school student (高校生 kōkōsei).
  9. JK gyaru Newer term for Kogyaru, or gyaru still in school uniforms.
  10. Ane gyaru Gyaru style that has the bad assery of yanki and biker gang culture with gyaru make up and style. The girls drive or ride bikes, and tend to have tattoos and piercings. They not only look rebellious, but the magazine caters to girls who live on the edge. Ane gyaru is more of a tougher version of Onee gyaru, and are for a bit more mature gals. Magazine of choice for fans and followers is Soul Sister, a relatively new magazine. Some of the girls work in construction, hostess clubs, or as Djs and models. Some are fighters or wrestlers.
  11. Yamanba: Like manba, but the nose stripe goes past the eyebrows.
