The anti-trend

Hair - - Beauty Trend -

As ev­ery cul­ture tends to have sub­cul­tures, it’s no sur­prise that there are groups of peo­ple within East Asia who stand against these pop­u­lar beauty ideals to cre­ate trends of their own. Gan­guro is one such branch in Ja­pan. Gan­guro girls sport tan skin and plat­inum hair. White eye­shadow and pale lip­stick that starkly con­trast their darker skin make their look es­pe­cially unique. While these girls abide by the Ja­panese fas­ci­na­tion with all things cute, girly and kawaii, they rebel against the larger beauty stan­dard of fair skin, dark hair and sub­tle make-up.
