Kogal Ganguro Yamanba and ManbaMay 16
Yamanba (ヤマンバ) and manba (マンバ) are styles which developed from Ganguro. Old school Yamanba and Manba (particularly known as 2004 Manba) featured dark tans and white lipstick, pastel eye make-up, tiny metallic or glittery adhesives below the eyes, brightly coloured circle lenses, plastic dayglo-coloured clothing, and incongruous accessories, such as Hawaiian leis (often the Alba Rosa brand). Stickers on the face died out shortly after 2004 and, for a while, Yamanba died. Manba is now more extreme, and hair is often multicoloured and usually synthetic. 2008’s Manba has seen a darker tan, and no facial stickers. Hair is usually neon/bright colours, with pink being a favourite. Wool (“dreadlocks”), extensions and clips are worn to make hair appear longer. Clothing remains the same, although leis are worn less frequently now.
Manba and Yamanba are not to be confused. Yamanba has white make-up only above the eye, while Manba has makeup below the eye also. Stuffed animals, bracelets, bells and hibiscuses are worn. The male equivalent is called a “center guy” (センター街 Sentāgai?, Center Street), a pun on the name of a pedestrian shopping street near Shibuya Station in Tokyo where Yamanba and center guys are often seen.
