Although a truly gifted hairstylist, Kiri Koshiba has no interest in using her talent to pursue fame and fortune, unlike the three popular boys in the "Scissors Project" at school. Determined to become the best makeover team in Japan, they give showy makeovers to handpicked girls. As much as Kiri tries to shy away from the Scissors Project spotlight, she finds herself responding to beauty's call...
Note: Beauty Pop Stage 2 is from volume 7 to 10. It is a continuation of Beauty Pop. This is because they were published after the hiatus. The whole series ends with 10 volumes.

I adore this series! There aren't many shoujo series that have shounen elements like this (a strong main character that has a special talent and develops in a certain field, competing in challenges, etc. etc.)The main character is both funny and strong (not obsessed with love OMG YAY), though there are still plenty of sweet moments throughout the series.
an interesting girl
i like the girl.....her attitude is very calm and not caring....it's quite refreshing since i'm a little sick seeing girls who overreact when guys do sth for her....she rarely smile.....but when she does.....she looks so cute........... if u are looking for romance......sorrie guys............ther's almost none..........very little..........it focus mostly on hair cut.........and the club..............i wish there some more romantic scene i really like the scene of the girl showing off how talent she really is in styling........it is very intersting
Not going to lie.
Okay, first of all, I'm not going to lie here. This is PURE, unadulterated (yes, being repetitive) shoujo. In other words, intended for younger audiences. Hence why there is the seemingly non-existent character development and lack of depth. Plus, the manga is very episodic, so the skillful characterizations that do take place are often overshadowed by ridiculous, shoujo-y things. That said, this manga has some things going for it. 1. The main girl is not annoying. In fact, she's quite calm and indifferent, but really, she just thinks things through. If this kind of person irritates you, I'm sorry to say that you're probably most often the irritating one to others. 2. It has a plot. It may seem like it doesn't, but lo and behold, it does. 3. Art. 4. Good morals put into it. (Again, think, this is for younger kids.) It may seem like the most superficial thing ever, but please, first take a deep breath. Remember that this is SHOUJO. And then think about the UNDERLYING theme, and perhaps, it may not be as obvious as you think. Themes such as "sometimes you just need a loved one to bring out the beauty in you" or "if you don't like who you are, change yourself." 5. Comedy. Many, many laughs while reading this. The male lead provides the main comic relief without being annoying (*cough* Tamaki from Ouran *cough*), which is a rare gem in shoujo. While not entirely "fresh," he's consistent in his actions, and is actually very like-able.
So end recommendation would be, if you like this sort of shoujo, go ahead. If you're looking for something realistic, I would recommend dropping the shoujo genre altogether.
this manga is really awesome, Kiri is the best shoujo heroine I've ever seen. I love how she's not stupid and dense. This is a wonderful comedy. though i haven't read to that yet, Beauty pop sequel has the genre of romance. CANT WAIT TO READ IT. >_> but this one starts hinting towards it. did i mention kiri is awesome?
This is one of my all-time favorites because of the story, characters, and comedy. I really recommend Beauty Pop to anyone looking for an interesting storyline/plot.
A truly fantastic series, adding both suspension to the readers, laughter, and joy. Beauty Pop shows it's readers that just because someone has an award for something doesn't mean they're better. I give a 10/10 for this series' great storyline.
It was really more than I expected. I loved Kiri's attitude, totally nonchalant. This was a really nice manga in a time when I was really bored and needed something good to read. Loved it!
LOVE THIS MANGA!!!! too good x3
I absolutely LOVE this manga.
Out of all the shoujo mangas I read, this will forever remain my favorite. The main character, Kiri, is designed very nicely. Her character breaks free from the typical cliche shoujo character. I love how she doesn't flaunt out her talent for cutting hair, but instead, helps others with her talent. The love rivalry is very well written out ^_^ Another thing I also liked about this manga was how the love wasn't rushed; since love isn't meant to be rushed... The art was pleasing and the ending was satisfying ;3 10/10
