Creative Pet Styling
Behind the scenes at the Intergroom 2012 pet grooming competition.
In recent years, creative pet styling competitions have become all the rage with the grooming set. Professional groomers work with paint, glitter, crystals, and feathers to transform dogs and cats into living works of art.
Also, outside of the competitive circuit, many groomers are offering color choices and advanced, decorative styling to their clients.
At the Intergroom 2012 Competition, groomers and stylist competed in several categories, including the Extreme Makeover Competition, the Creative Challenge, and the Feline Fantasy contest.
The four-legged entrants, many of them rescued cats and dogs, included everything from Buddha statues to mermaids, as well as nods to popular characters such as Winnie the Pooh and the Muppets.
