Beauty Pop -

A Manga full of laughs, seriousness, and slight hints of romance. Its a wonderful and enjoyable manga and I'm surprised barely anyone reviewed on it. The Story mainly focuses on Kiri Koshiba; girl gifted with the talent of hairstyling and is the daughter of the famous hairstylist Seiji Koshiba. Her life has changed ever since she encounters the S,P (Scissors Project); three popular guys at Ryokufuu High School that gives the selected girls a beauty touch. I really liked this manga because of its style and the funniness.

Art -

I liked the Art, it was very neatly drawn and also funny. Their looks read more

Beauty Pop is an exellent manga to laugh. The genre is comedy, and it is.
Kiri Koshiba, the daughter of legendary hair stylist Seji Koshiba, has golden hands if it comes to hairstyling (just like her dad). But she don't really care about that fact, and that's what makes it funny, I think. Kiri always has troubles with her rival, Narumi. Narumi is the son of the owner of the biggest hair salon in Japan and he's pretty good in hairstyling too.

The art is really good; it is fine to read and it looks so cute, even the 'bad' guys!

Beauty Pop has a sweet read more

I found Beauty Pop to be enjoyable. My favorite genre is rom-com and although I can say that Beauty Pop had both of these things in it was a bit skimpy on romance. If you like to laugh and don't enjoy up front romance this manga is for you. I am not saying that the romance is non-existent it just not the main influence. Overall though the story is interesting with likable characters that don't really get on your nerves. Its art work is pretty good and the story is descent. It really lacks in the pacing. It goes from kind of slow to really read more

There is only one reason I'm not giving this manga a 10-so hear me out.

The story revolves around Koshiba Kiri, a slightly aloof girl who comes off as being self-centered. However, she has an extraordinary knack for hairstyling. This isn't taken well by the resident 'genius' hairstyle Shougo Narumi, who vows to beat her along with the help of his club, The Scissors Project.

So yeah, your probably reading this thinking it's an average run-of-the-mill shoujo. Which, if I'm honest, I was expecting that myself. Trust me you couldn't be more wrong. It's almost like the characters have been reversed. Instead of the guy being the read more

Recommendations

Manga: Ouran Koukou Host Club
A realistic, snarky girl is thrust into the world of an over-the-top club of boys in her school. These are lighthearted shoujo series that are similar in both premise and sense of humor and fun.

Manga: Last Game
Both mangas have a girl who's expressionless and hot-blooded male who thinks of female lead as a rival and then love interest :)

Manga: Tennis no Ouji-sama
- they both have main characters, who are very confident, both in their personality and there skills.

- both main characters are actually left handet. especially when they use there special skills.

- they both have a lazy father, who train the main characters to improve there skills.

- Both fathers were professional, but they gave up on their dreams, due to some unknown sercomstances ( sorry, don't know if I misspelled it )

- they both have a team, who compete against other teams.

- both main characters, have a cat, as they both love very much.

Manga: Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu
The female main character cuts the male main characters hair. In both series the boys, dont trust women and afraid that women will hurt but both boys find something special in both female leads. Both are nice shojo reads.

Manga: To Be...
To Be is more focused on romance, whereas Beauty Pop is focused more on the beauty aspect... but these both share the plot of students striving in a hairstyling world. I think if you like one, you will definitely like the other.

Manga: Ageha 100%
