Ganguro Kei features extreme makeup, contacts, colorful outfits, dark tans, and a look reminiscent of an island girl. The style rose in popularity during the late 90s in the Tokyo districts, Shibuya and Ikebukuro. Like other niche fashions, Ganguro was an expression of rebellion, self-identity and freedom from conformity. Other staples of Ganguro include face stickers, gems, short skirts, and hair that has been bleached or dyed.
