Synopsis:

Hibino Tsubaki is talented in hair styling but she isn’t comfortable with styling her own hair. She keeps her hair in 2 ponytails and is often teased by her classmates for dressing conservatively. On the other hand, Tsubaki Kyouta is fashionable and adored by everyone. One fine day, he decides to tease the other Tsubaki and ends up having his hair cut without his permission. “The current hairstyle didn’t do him justice,” so she says, and sparks fly between them. Is this the start of something more?
