So this is a “vague” question. (Pun absolutely intended, I have no shame.) Vague was in Shizuoka 109.
If you could go back in time, what would you tell the beginner gyaru you?
I think in gyaru and in life we learn in balance, partially through trial and error and partially through someone actually instructing us.
So what have you learned through trial and error or someone telling you that you’d go back and say… “Listen girl, we need to talk…” (ala those good Blake Griffin Kia commercials if you’re in the US).
From things to make-up, hair, coordination, to the dealing with the ugly aspects of overseas gyaru (better off ignored I say).
Super cute purikura set-up also at Shizuoka 109
Who knows maybe your tips can be like your Gyaru University course to a beginner gal and we can work on helping each other (which all women should be doing).
I’d tell myself:
Use more make-up than you think you need. A ton more. Your heavy is in no way near gyaru style.
Slow change is the best change. Instead of killing your hair with 12 dye jobs a year.
Don’t pick 50 styles at once for your closet.
A good blank canvas is better than a well done outside. Well cared for skin, healthy hair, loving yourself mean more than the outer gyaru case.
A good eyelash glue is better than great lashes and a crap glue.
If you want to sleep in before class, buy a wig.
So let’s travel back in time and as usual with open post, let the glory happen in the comments
BTW I already said thank you, but I have to say it again, you fabulous ladies fucking rocked last open post. I’m so curious what you’ll do with this topic.
