From Viz:

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.

This is a manga I often come back to. It has parts that I just can't forget and love to re-read. I never felt like it was dragging, even though, essentially, the same scenario repeated itself.
If this had been a shounen, Kiri would have been your typical strong heroine hiding her powers, but it's a shoujo so it works well. I personally love all of the characters; there are no really evil characters and no reoccuring annoying girls. The ending rounds things off, as opposed to leaving it open-ended, and is a nod to the romance in the story which is often only an undertone.
I like this manga. It has a slow, laid back quality while at the same time moving forward with new situations and new characters. I thought that the character introductions were mostly natural and very few characters were forgotten about.

The story was cute and the characters were good. Kiri as the main female character was awesome! I hope to read more manga that has characters like her. The flow of the manga was satisfying. It is entertaining, especially when towards the ending. The art was good and it was funny at times too. I would recommend it to everyone.

I have read a large amount of shoujo and sometimes it's hard to finish them (because of the cliches and long developments) but that has never happened in this. I loved it so much >.< The characters, plot development, art! All of it can be described as cute in my opinion. I love how Arai-sensei tried to get out the box from regular cliches and I thank her for that. I have laughed so many times because of this manga and I must say all in all it's a good read!

This is a definitely well done manga, her personality is lovable. Kiri is not your typical shoujo heroine, her personality is strong and not once did she turn into a crybaby. I really loved this manga i would recommended this to anyone who likes a female to have a strong personality.

Theres no doubt that this is good. It has everything i look for in a manga romance,comedy,good art, great story line, i always love rivalry and a strong female lead. How ever i feel like this manga could have been so much more. it was all set up with great characters and a good plot but it dident really live up to my expatiations it was kinda a let down. The ending felt really rushed and i was very disappointed with it. you read 51 chapters that all lead up to.......not that much. i was disappointed with this it could have been so much more.

I usually only enjoy fantasy and action, but this was a great change of pace for me and I actually enjoyed it. I didn't get bored with it at all and had a great time reading it. It had cute romance and some humor. Also, the main character was unique (she wasn't like every other shoujo main character). I liked the art and I reccomend this to anyone looking to read a great manga.

Really good

The story was enjoyable. At first, the plot seems repetitive with them only trying to make girls look good but as the story goes on, it progressed. It's about making girls beautiful and yet they have pretty unexpected characters for the role. When I first read the summary, I thought this wouldn't be that good but seems like I was wrong.

The art is really good. I love it. This was actually one of my favorite manga.

The characters are amazing. Kiri (the female lead) is unlike any other shoujo heroines. She's a hairstylist who just act cool and doesn't cry easily.A really admirable character. I love her stoic expressions and how she just doesn't seem to care. On the other hand, Narumi (the male lead) is an equally enjoyable character himself. He seems like a kid and likes to show off. He thinks of Kiri as a rival and I just can't help think that their perfect for each other.

The romance was a bit slow but at least no one fell in love after the first chapter or the girl fell in love because the main guy was always protecting her and blah blah blah... I really liked the sort of romance applied here since I was getting tired of good girl makes bad boy good.

Almost perfect

For me this manga was so very almost perfect. It would have got a full 10 if it didn't seem as though it jumped from the ambiguous last scene to many years later. The ending is usually the let down of most manga though.
It was a nice ending but I felt like I would have enjoyed a bit more elaboration on how things came about and people's reactions and stuff like that.
Not sure if there is some kind of manga that follows the series though.
Anyways on the manga as a whole it was an enjoyable, pleasant read with a strong female lead character and an amusingly second-place lead male which made it very appealing to me smile
Definitely recommended.
