Men's Egg is the most popular magazine amongst gyaruo, and is often described as the "gyaruo bible". It is this magazine that has arguably had the largest influence on the development and constant change of gyaruo lifestyle and fashion. It is a counterpart of Egg magazine, which focuses on Gyaru fashions.

Men's Egg's image revolves around Japanese working-class trends, appealing to young men mostly under 20. It draws inspiration from Japanese "yankee" (rascal) culture, also with techno and surfer influences. This style is often looked down on by some other Japanese, who associate it with juvenile delinquency, and also, "Inakamono"(somebody from the countryside). The generic "Bon-Jovi"-esque style featured is in Men's Egg magazine.

Then there is the popular Men's Knuckle magazine which is aimed at wearers of the more mature looking onii-kei fashion (お兄系), hosts (ホスト) and gyaruo.

Men's Egg Bitter (For gyaruo aged 23+) and a fairly new magazine called Men's Digger.

Within the gyaruo fashion their are a number of sub fashions, which can roughly broken down into the following groups:

* Military (ミリテリー系)
* Rock (ロック系)
* Biker (バイカー系)
* American Casual (アメカジ系)
* Surfer (サーファー系)
* Host (ホスト系)
* Adult (お兄系)
