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.

It was cute!
This was a great manga! I mean, the main character is different from most mangas which makes it interesting. Kiri is basically indifferent about everything and she can make the most awesome hairstyles. I loved seeing how different people were transformed. It was always a different hairstyle each time. I really envy the talent Kiri has. The art was also good, that's why the hairstyles seemed awesome. Its starts off a bit slow but it bets better. I think the plot and characters are pretty good. I loved the manga!
It was good
Beauty Pop was pretty good. I liked Kiri a lot. She never got annoying, and she always had this aloof expression that made her not only cool but kind of funny as well. The hair cutting contests made the manga pretty interesting; they kept me reading because I would always want to know the result of the contests (even though it was pretty obvious Kiri would win every time). Narumi was pretty entertaining too. There was just enough romance in this manga, and I'm so glad that the author didn't put any unnecessary typical shoujo romance drama. I thought ten volumes was a good length, although I do kind of wish that the author had made the manga just a little bit longer for the sake of developing the relationship between Kiri and Narumi. Overall it was a very good read. It's one of those mangas that are entertaining enough to read again.

This was so cute!
It was an amazing manga manga with very interesting characters and a original plot. This manga didn't have some stupid girl that cries every chapter. She didn't fall in love with the first guy she sees. The author developed the characters wonderfully. It was funny but at the same time there were some deep parts. I would really recommend this!
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
I LUHRVED it sooooo much! (yes, you just heard a fangirl squee!) I loved the art, and the story was cute... the ending could've been better, yes, it was cliched, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would've begged for moar moar moar, but alas, it is forever complete. Tip of the hat to Kiyoko Arai-Sensei. This is one of my favorites.
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!
This is a very cute manga not very suited for mature people it's more for younger children. I personally loved it because I even bought the whole series, it was very influential and made me want to cut hair also but it was not a manga that I would really care about, i think it could do better.
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 was just TOO childish for my taste. I felt that there was something lacking along the storyline and it was never really dealt with. Plus,the main objective was already quite obvious,so to speak---style hair;transform another,magic,viola. The plot was just repetitive and it just dragged for a staggering 10 volumes, get a load of that. I really have to disagree with the fact that this manga sets it apart from other mainstream works. The only reason it does so is because of the stoic facade the female shows. It's not fantastic at all in my own opinion,not being a hater but considering how overrated this is is already enough proof. Come to think of it,without the whole beauty makeover and hair cutting,this might just turn out to be a seemingly common plot...
Forever favorite <3
I love the female lead. She's cool and self-centered but she actually cares about people. The male lead,love him! he's not the cliche dense guy in usual mangas and I like the fact that he's chasing his dream. Basically this manga isn't about romance,it focused on their dreams. The plot is interesting and story line is not so cliche. I didn't expect Ochiai to fall in love with Kiri. But the ending disappoints me. What's the point by going to L.A with her mom and then came back few years later? Sheesh.. Also the biggest problem is "THEY DIDN'T KISS". It was once,and it's an accident. Although I was happy but still.. Well,hugging is enough though,I like hugs more but it's just ONE HUG. :'( hff.. Anyway,I love it. Fun to re-read.
