I can definitely say you're not alone. Its funny with how long Gaijin Gyaru have existed, yet we still have the same standards hanging over out heads:
You must be thin,
You must be Blond
You must have long hair, and it has to be styled big at all time.
You must be Asian, and live and breathe the style
You have to follow the magazines exactly.
Well, I am here, along with a lot of Gyaru in our community, to tell you that we are not going to stick to those
I can honestly prove to you can you can be what ever gyaru you want to be simply by adding some 'oompf' to it. Take a look at the photos below:
Big Hair isn't always a requirement but when you want it, you can use extensions!!!
Casual styles are in! Dress them up with the right make and accessories and you can definite achieve Gal.
75% of Gyaru hair styles revolve around the tool you see above. And once you understand the basics, you can create masterpieces.
You don't have to sacrifice a decent relationship to dress up.
Can't stand to keep one hair color very long? We have gals who are like that!
and finally, the truly big one...
Who needs to be skinny? This girl is sporting Gal style like there's no tomorrow.
Have fun, study up, and don't forget to ask questions!
