What's The Difference Between An Okokok And Lalala Girl?

If there's one thing TikTok users seem to live for, it's categorizing "girls" and aesthetics. We've seen clean girls, vanilla girls, "that girl" girls, blueberry girls, strawberry girls, and even tomato girls. Now, the platform has gifted us with a pair of new types of girls: okokok girls and lalala girls. Most of the TikTok videos referring to the trend are set to the song "See You Again" by Tyler, the Creator (featuring Kali Uchis), suggesting that its lyrics are the inspiration for the type names.


On the surface, the most common descriptions of okokok girls and lalala girls align with the theory of type-A and type-B personalities, which has been around since the 1950s. However, in typical TikTok fashion, entire fashion aesthetics have also been attached to the modern archetypes. Let's take a closer look at the differences said to exist between an okokok girl and a lalala girl.

What is an okokok girl?

An okokok girl is a girl or woman who embraces planning and structure in her life. She is on time, prepared, and ready to give you a rundown of her daily, monthly, or five-year plan at any given time. This type of persona is also widely known as a type-A personality. According to TikTok, you can spot an okokok girl by her classic wardrobe and clean, understated makeup.


Once you get to know her, you can expect to be let into her often-introverted inner world. If you stop at her home, you may catch her reading, getting lost in a classic film, or updating her vision (or Pinterest) boards. She is likely to be more focused on her career or studies than she is on her social life or hobbies. This combined with her reserved personality can make her rather difficult to get to know, but once you do, you'll have a loyal friend for life. 

What is a lalala girl?

A lalala girl is a girl or woman with what is traditionally known as a type-B personality. You can think of this persona as the opposite of a type-A personality, or okokok girl. A lalala girl is laid-back, carefree, unstructured, and someone who likes to fly by the seat of her pants. She is always up for a good time and easily collects friends as she effortlessly breezes through life. According to TikTok, you can spot her by her girly boho aesthetic, a look that's always in style.


Of course, on the flip side, a lalala girl may not be able to offer the same level of loyalty or reliability as an okokok girl. Spontaneity is the name of her game, and that means not always showing up or following through with the original plan. As long as you know how to manage your expectations, you can find the perfect place in your life for both lalala girls and okokok girls, no matter which category you fall into.
