Ora Ora (オラオラ), also known as Ora Ora Kei, is a sub-style of Gyaru fashion. The style is a tougher style of gyaru that focuses on black clothes, and being rebellious.

Ora Ora can be seen in magazines such as Soul Sister, and Soul Japan. It sometimes includes yakuza-styled tattoos, and high brand accessories. Ora Ora Kei is a continuation of yankii culture with the addition of Onii-kei gyaru styling.
