It’s almost fall and that means fall fashions! While everyone loves breaking out the chunky sweaters and hiking boots, it’s important that you don’t forget about those who can be less fashion fortunate than you – your dog.
It’s easy to help your furry best friend to be fashion forward with just a few snips. Take this change of the season to get your pooch in style with a hairstyle worthy of the celebrity they are.
Treating the Star Like a Star
Of course, any hairstyle needs care for it to work well. Shampooing, conditioner, combing, a proper diet all combine to keep your dog’s coat healthy and keep them happy.
The Mussed Look
This is a carefully constructed way for your dog to say “I don’t care.” A little hair gel and they’ll have all the dogs swooning at doggie day care.
Pro tip though – don’t go overboard. You want to work the hair just around the head, if you go too much around the body your dog will be sporting the “Static Electricity Look” which is not a style that the in-crowd covets.
For years this has been the last grasp of men of a certain age who don’t want to admit that their full head of hair days are behind them. Well, this look has been reclaimed, refreshed, and reimagined for the 21st-century pooch.
This is a cool style that works particularly well for dogs with a narrower face. It works really nice in conjunction with a full cut.
You know your dog is a star, shouldn’t the whole world? Why not share your dog’s star-power with a cut that invokes their favorite celebrity while allowing your pup to add their own style. Take what makes your pet special and use it!
If they have an artistic temperament give them their 15 minutes as with a touch of Andy Warhol. If you’ve got a furry little athlete, maybe you want to cut it close and give them a Lebron James.
Tough yet Tender / fauxhawk:
The mohawk, a staple of punk rock. Your dog can rock a mohawk hard or dial it back a bit and go a little softer with a fauxhawk.
It’s a simple look just a little gel and a comb but when done right look out! Your star will be strutting like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.
It’s the “standing forlornly on the beach looking across the waves” look. Perfect for emo-loving teens and dogs of a certain type.
This look, obtained with the help of a blow dryer, is a great way to draw attention to those puppy dog eyes. Be prepared to fall in love all over again.
Your Furry Fashionista
A sweet new Fall cut is just what your dog needs to take the changing seasons by storm. They’ll be the talk of the dog park with a look that’s all red carpet.
In fact, take the changing of the season to give your dog a full makeover. That means not just a new look but making sure they feel like a star too by taking care of their teeth, get them a checkup, and make sure their dog flea medicine is up to date.
Then find the cut that matches your dog’s personal style, enhances their features and brings out their “wow.” In no time at all, you’ll be chasing off paparazzi on your evening walks
