Ganguro literally means “black face,” in Japanese and has been a trend in Japanese street fashion for over 20 years now, peaking around the millennium. The staples of this look are extremely tanned skin, bleached or silver hair and heavy white make up. Some believe that it was inspired by 90's American pop star/bimbo look but some believe it was just teenage Japanese girl's way of rebelling against the pale skin, dark hair and neutral make up beauty ideal.
Ganguros go all out not only with their make up, but also with their clothes - Dangerously tall platform shoes and neon clothing are a must.
