Kiri is a gifted young hairstylist who takes great pleasure in anonymously using her talents to add a ‘little magic' to an ordinary girl's life. On the flipside, a group of three boys called the Scissors Project have an entirely different mindset: they give grand makeovers to a select group of handpicked girls who are beautiful to begin with. Kiri is quite content with staying out of the public eye, though with the Scissors Project's leader Narumi refusing to stand aside and give up his makeover throne, it seems that she won't be able to stay out of the spotlight for long. With challenges being thrown at her whenever there's a chance, Kiri finds that she cannot resist responding to the world of hairstyling.
These two manga take arms against society's version of beauty and argue that any girl can be beautiful, so you should be happy to be yourself! They do so in rather different manners, but the message is there, and it's rather refreshing.
Both series deal with a major love triangle and I had a hard time choosing my favorite guy until the end; each has redeeming qualities about him that makes it hard to choose which one you would really pick. It is interesting to see how much your opinion changes throughout the series when you read it! Both series also deal with high school relationships.
