Doggy Styles : 15 Artfully Groomed Pup ‘Dos

Doggy Styles : 15 Artfully Groomed Pup 'Dos

Pup hair can require more upkeep than human hair — it needs to be washed, thinned, trimmed, shaped, and wrapped into looking neat and styled. Professional groomers pull out all the stops for dog shows and competitions in an effort to produce camera and crowd ready bouffants. Take a gander at some specialist groomers’ best behind-the-scenes work.

The Milkmaid Chic

The Barbie

The Snake

This Shih Tzu had her hair snaked with rubber bands for the 131st Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2007. Groomers take the bands off once the rest of the ‘do is done.

The Red Ribbon
