pronounced: gang-goo-roh

Defined by:

1. An alternative fashion trend of blonde or orange hair and tanned skin among young Japanese women. 2. The term is a portmanteau of the Japanese word gangankuro "ガンガン黒", meaning extremely dark, and guro "グロ", meaning grotesque, and the word ganguro translates to "blackface" or "charbroiled face", meaning heavily-sunburned face.


Oh my...your girlfriend is a ganguro...

Can we please dress up as ganguros for Halloween!

The Ganguro fashion scene is quite intense. Orange clown make-up and bright neon hair has never looked so terrifying. I wonder what it's like taking all that off at the end of the night??? Young teenage women take on this look in rebellion to traditional Japanese society. You can find many Ganguro's in Tokyo's Shibuya and Ikebukuro districts. There are even guy version of Ganguros! I think they're called "center guys?" O.o
