Kawaii Hair and Hairstyles!

As I have said earlier, to be kawaii you need to be BRIGHT!

As well as putting on that beautiful smile of yours, you should present yourself appropriately.

Predictably, I suggest using bright colours. BUT use them effectively to match your personality or the colours you wear most. I am not sure about other countries but here we don't commonly find bold hair colours as much as I would want. I find it easier to find colours online. Manic Panic is most commonly found and can be bought on the online stores I listed last week. They are permanent dies so be cautious. But don't be afraid to go bright and bold! Otherwise, use streaks of colour instead.

Really, you won't know until you try many different hairstyles before you find the right one. But try to keep it simple and cute. Subtle side fringes and soft waves are popular and work well with many people. 
Long hair is exceptional! Many more opportunities to use more creative designs.

Here are a few suggestions ->
When time is available, experiment and trial some of the hairstyles to see what suits you.

The most important part. Kinda. It gives the same impression as streaks: to add a little spark and glam. In this picture shows some of the many possibilities you can have. Personally, I think she uses too many, but the clips are super cute! You can also use oversized bows, thick scrunches and fake hair extensions. 

Thank you for checking this out!

Kawaii Clothes: Stores and Suggestions

So if you are like me, you LOVE kawaii things and you want to show it to the world. That's why you must dress accordingly. In this post I will give you shops and suggestions to make make your outfits as cute and kawaii as possible!
Types of Kawaii Clothing
Lolita Clothing is quite popular if you want to go for a 'softer' look, not to stand out much but still be cute! Lolita clothing can be divided into even more categories including steampunk, Gothic, sweet and more! Sweet is probably the most kawaii of Lolita style but really, there are no restrictions on cute! ->

<- Harajuku Style is the most bold of the styles. Most people say that it is a clash of random colours to make people look childish, but I describe with one word: FUN. How can you not be amazed by how colourful and cute these outfits are! Easy to do, hardly need much creativity.

YOUR Style is your own outfits and style. It isn't hard to be kawaii, anyone can do it! Be committed and be happy! Make up your own style of colourful creations.

Kawaii Stores
It is hard to find good stores that sell cute clothes like these. Most you will find online.

This is a personal favourite and I strongly suggest to look here. They have heaps of brands that sell a range of things. As well as cute clothing, they have hair dye, shoes, accessories and bedding sheets! Even I haven't explored every brand and category yet.

Recently found site. The clothing is simple and less kawaii than Beserk BUT the accessories are super cute and cheap! 

Not a huge range of anything really. But I really admired the clothes they had!

If you don't like shopping online, combination of bright clothes, accessories and makeup can make you look just as good. If you would like me to find more stores please comment or email me at 

Thank you!

What is Kawaii?

 Kawaii, when translated into Japanese means cute. And that basically sums it all up!
It is kind of hard to explain. But it just is a word to describe something that is cute, adorable or colourful.
This can be anything from cartoon fruit with a face to harajuku girls!
