Acid's Make over!

My friend is an apprentice at a hair salon, and she had a test yesterday and I was the model! 

It was a complete make over, with
  • Dyeing hair with two colors
  • Dyeing eyelashes and eyebrows
  • Haircut
  • Styling
It was a tough process, because my hair was still pink under the black hair! I haven't had pink hair in.. a year and a half, more like two years..  

The process
 No make up :x

 Dyeing lashes'n'brows
It's so hard to sit absolutely still for 15 minutes, not opening your eyes.. I'm so easily distracted!

The result!

I think the braiding looks really cool, I was I had the patience to do them myself some time!
I think it's a bit too short though, but it'll always grow longer ;D

How I got into gyaru:

My first encounter with gyaru was with the old-school manba and kogals. I thought it was very cool and daring, but not something I would look good in. So I got into visual kei & oshare-kei, or at least I tried. With all the Sex Pot and multiple facial piercings that usually follows. Then I found Frida and started paying attenton to her. I joined the Norwegian JFashion community and there I learned alot about the different styles in Japanese street fashion. I was then introduced to the "mordern" version of gyaru. And little by little I fell in love with it.

How I got into gyaru:
I don't remember actually when(year) but from what I DO remember the first time I heard of "gyaru" was when I was a visual kei kid and saw one of Koda Kumi's PVs. I did not like it and I thought she was a bit slutty. After a couple of years being in the visual kei scene I saw a picture of Kaoru Watanabe and thought she was creepy and weird looking, and well the style itself didn't appeal to me. I thought to myself "I'll never dress like that,not in a million years",well I didn't really like those type of girls.
Few years later I kind of grew out of visual kei and started going for korean street style. And at the same time I started liking gyaru more and more(yeah I know...after saying I disliked that kind of fashion). I saw pictures of Rumi Ringo with her black hair and I thought to myself that style isn't so bad afterall,it can actually be an edgy and rock-ish look. So I ended up searching for gyaru on google images,doing research on how they dress, if there were girls in the west doing the style, also girls in Norway and I ended up finding several communities on LJ and different forums. 
Got to mention her name because she kind of inspired me to keep being a gyaru, Kristiina(keikk). I got tons of help from her. But also Monica Tang. Following her on LJ was really fun, because I got to see how a norwegian gyaru is doing the style. And well after that I kind of went to try it myself. I have to admit I have been going back and forth with gyaru and korean street style before 2-3 years ago. But now I'm dedicated to gyaru to the fullest~

How I got into gyaru:
My first encounter with gyaru was through a Norwegian magazine dedicated to manga and japanese pop culture; they had an article about Ganguro and kogyaru. 

At first glance I did not like what I saw, it was during a period which I drew conclutions fast and associated them with the valley girl type - which I despised back then. I was really into j-rock bands and visual kei though, and through it I started getting into japanese street styles. I fell in love with lolita and j-punk and started trying to dress in those styles. I still disliked gyaru, and when I say dislike I actually mean HATE. Yes, I despised gyaru with all my heart's content, for some stupid reason. 

After a year or so I started to open my mind a bit more, and after some lurking and glaring at gyaru images started really liking gyaru, but it was with my encounter with a particular GIF-animation of Tsubasa Masuwaka that I truly fell in love with gyaru. I was mesmerized by her perfect curly light hair, make-up, style, everything. 
Through a Norwegian internet society and Livejournal I met Monica Tang. She made me even more interested in gyaru, and I learned a lot from her.

Buuut it was still not the kind of style I would dress in - I was still too much into punk and rock-styles, and at the time I didn't know rokku existed. But at last I saw some Egg scans of girls dressed in - gasp - punkish rock outfits. I was growing tired of visual kei, I didn't like the negative attention it got, I decided to be more inspired by rokku gyaru, but in the end I went over to "the dark side" completely. I've had some weird fallbacks, but I am now 100% gyaruwashed.

How I got into gyaru:
It started some years ago when I found a manba profile at Myspace, and I instantly fell in love with the style because I have allways been fascinated by crazy hair. I used to be cybergoth at that time, so things have changed alot XD After a while I got more interested in japanese pop-culture and other styles. Then I got into the norwegian J-fashion community trough a norwegian internet society, and learned a lot. I allways loved gyaru, and even though I wasent gyaru and I got inspiration from many different styles, I kinda ended up with Gyaru.

How I got into gyaru:
I don't really remember, haha. I originally got into Lolita six-seven years ago, and knew already then that gyaru was the counterpart of the style I loved so much. Years on, I realize that gyaru is awesome and a lot more appropriate for my behaviour. Lolita and drinking, vulgar behaviour and stuff like that doesn't really go together ;) 
Lolita is also way too expensive for me, and gyaru clothing is to be found everywhere, in all price ranges :) I love the make up illusions gyarus pull off, it's mezmerizing on some :)

How I got into gyaru:

 I got into gyaru march 2009, when I join a fashion show hosted by I attended as a Rokku gyaru. This was the first time I met Monica and some of the other girls. Everything was new to me, and it was a bit scary since I didn't knew anyone from the community. But everyone was really nice, and I soon blended in with the others.

 I also made a new best friend, Ronja, and this is basically how I got into Lolita. I still attended as a Rokku gyaru at's fashion show, but  after a while i spent all my money and energy on expensive brands from Angelic pretty, Moitie etc. Lolita was one of the most important things in my life. But all of a sudden I found out that it didn't really fit into my life anymore and lost my passion. That's how I got into gyaru again, and one of the reasons this circle was made. Weird coincidence, huh? ;)
