What’s “Mori”?

Girls like to overload whatever…say, hair, nails, mbreast, and especially make-up in order to make themselves look better (more kawaii) ! 

Keitai (cell phone), as well known as decoden, is considered mori, too.

If you’ve ever been to Japan, you’ll know how easy it is to collect cheap kawaii cosmetics, tools for make-up, and convenient goods at the places like Donki.

Reflecting this mori trend, hair stylist is not just a hair stylist any more.  They try to become mori-shi, or a master of mori.  There are even workshops where we can learn mori technique. 

Nowadays purikura machines have mori function so the eyes look bigger. This is considered mori, too.
