Hey cutie, how are you? ♡ Today I want to introduce you to the “gal-o-meter!” This is to help newbies in particular to create a bit of balance as gyaru is about the overall look rather than just one aspect. It was an idea created originally by Hannah (rosequartzroyalty) that Chris then adapted to use for gyaru, and then Sei created this lil’ graphic for us to use!
This is a brief summary to help explain the concept to you which I grabbed from Sei:
This chart depicts all the key points in gyaru styling. When you tone down on one point, it’s important to increase the intensity in another area to maintain balance and keep your overall look recognisably gyaru. Depending on your target style, some elements may be lessened in preference for others (e.g. having a tan is less important in Hime).
