First-year high school student Kiri Koshiba is a skilled hairstylist. Whenever others are bullied or ridiculed for their appearance, she steps in to do some "magic," giving them makeovers that bring out their natural beauty.

At Kiri's school, three second-year students make up the popular Scissors Project (SP): Shougo Narumi, the hairstylist; Kei Minami, the nail artist; and Kazuhiko Ochiai, the overall beauty consultant. The SP selectively chooses one female student to makeover and produces amazing results every time.

When Kanako Aoyama, Kiri's childhood friend, confesses her feelings to Ochiai by giving him a present, she is accused of bribing her way into becoming the next girl for an SP makeover. Kiri comes to Kanako's defense and performs some "magic" on her, leaving the SP stunned at Kanako's transformation. Not knowing who is responsible, the SP searches for Kanako's hairstylist in order to have a haircutting showdown, the start of a rivalry between Narumi and Kiri.

Beauty Pop is a lovely story with fantastic characters!

The story wasn't to complicated and it was easy to follow but only enjoyable to read, and the characters are all well drawn and got their own (incredably cute) personality. Yes, the story in the beginning wasn't all my cup of tea, but the more I read the more I fell in love with the humor and the characters.

The art overall maybe isn't all that outstanding, but allthough it was sometimes a little plain the drawing style is cute and wery sutable towards the story.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
I stayed for the fun characters but ultimately it felt like a lot of things went from unresolved to magically "fixed" to make it fit into an ending. The plot just kinda went nowhere in the end so I'm sad that in the 5 or so years it took to finish this manga a better plotline was not planned. The author themselves even mentioned the story was not progressing quick at around chapter 6!! That should have been my omen.

I might be salty because I'm tired of a story sorta concluding and then not really concluding but we get a huge time skip where ...
