Kuro Gyaru is a sub-style of Gyaru. Kuro Gyaru means 'Black-skinned girls' which originates from the dark tans worn by Kuro Gyaru. The style has graduated from the original Ganguro style and is considered one of the more prominent modern gyaru styles.

Modern Kuro Gyaru[edit | edit source]
Kuro Gyaru is one of the more popular styles of Gyaru today and is still worn by many gals, especially those in japan. Black Diamond claim that part of their goal of 'world domination' they wish to turn all girls in the world into Kuro Gyaru particularly. The style, whilst popular, remains slightly inaccessible to some for its high level of upkeep and the cost of staying up to date with trends and tanning consistently.
