- "What I was missing back then was a style all my own! From now on, no more imitating. I'm going to make every day a blast with Hinaki Shinjō's own fashion!"
– Hinaki in Episode 113
Hinaki has short, curly yellow-blonde hair in a feathered bob. She has a braid that goes across the right side of her forehead and clipped with an orange star. Her eyes are a piercing lime-green.
Hinaki is an energetic girl with an informal manner about her that allows her to get along well with others. She's been in the entertainment business since childhood and thus has more knowledge and experience compared to most idols her age. Because of this, she'll sometimes feel insecure as nothing she says sounds fresh. She's a very fashionable girl and enjoys being so. She likes to dress up in coords and feels that there are clothes that suit everyone.
Shinjō (新条) means sentiment or article of faith.
Hinaki (ひなき) is written in hiragana so the true meaning is unknown; however, "ki" can be written in many different kanji, while "hina" is usually written as "雛", which means "young chick."
Hinaki is the daughter of parents who work for a fashion magazine. When she was younger she decided she wanted to enter show business and with her parents' help she was able to debut. Hinaki made a lot of appearances at that time and sometimes took jobs with Juri Kurebayashi. At one point, during a live appearance on a rainy day, she slipped and fell on stage which knocked her unconscious. She was rushed to the hospital and though it was nothing serious, the staff became very protective of her from that point on. Because of that, Hinaki, not wanting others to worry about her, began doing things and making choices that she knew would bring ease to others. Even at the expense of her own ideas and what she thought about herself. This continued up until she came across Akari whose freshness lit a light in her.
