Tired of Boring Poodle Cuts? Try Dog Hair Dye Instead
A perfectly coiffed poodle cut is a thing of beauty, but beautiful doesn't exactly mean cool. For a more unique look that makes your pooch the talk of the town, there's another option you probably never considered: dog hair dye.
Before anyone panics, human hair dye is strictly off-limits. Pet hair dye formulated specifically for dogs or other pets is completely non-toxic and harmless, even if they lick their fur. It's also temporary, fading after about 20 washes.
For those dog owners looking for creative grooming ideas, here are some very fun colors and creations to inspire your dog's next 'do.
White Dogs Wear Light Blue Better Than Cinderella
If the prince isn't absolutely taken with Cinfurella, he's just plain stupid. She's so much better than the princess.
Do you see her losing her shoes? No, because she doesn't even need them.
Just a Touch of Green for a Low-Maintenance Halloween Look
This pupper would match perfectly with a Monsters, Inc. family costume. If she were dyed all green, she'd be a perfect Mike.
A Bright Turquoise Mowhawk? So Edgy
The fact that it's so easy to change the color is amazing. Your dog can reinvent itself every week.
You can even color-coordinate your outfits. Brilliant.
Pink Poodles Will Never Not Be Classic
Is a pink poodle revolutionary? No, but we're here for it anyway.
The only pink poodles we've seen before this were in picture books, and the real thing is so much better.
The Dalmatian We All Wanted as Kids
Shut up and take our money. We don't even have a Dalmatian, but we'll borrow one just to add additional polka dots.
Knee Socks Are in This Season
This pure-white husky is giving us Bolt vibes. Something about the bright colors shouts, "Look, ma! My light-up sneakers make me run faster."
A Dog Hair-Dye Trend for Twins
Matching dogs, matching bobs.
Even Hairless Dogs Have Enough Fur to Jazz Up
Spot color seems like a popular choice. Aside from a dog's tail, the rest would be pretty easy to trim if you're not feeling colorful anymore.
A Pride Pooch
Let's face it. If you dye your dog's fur any color, subtlety is not what you're after.
A colorful dog is going to get noticed, and if it's this colorful, it might be noticed from the next state over.
How’d This Fox Photo Get in Here?
Um, this list is for dogs? The editors around here must be sleeping on the job.
A Vanilla Rainbow Sherbet Swirl
How even? How did someone manage to paint dye in such thin stripes without staining the rest of the dog's fur?
We're so curious.
Forget Pink Poodles. Royal Blue Is Even Better.
Now, this we could pull off. Just lather the entire dog up in blue shampoo.
That's how it works, right?
First Foxes, Now Pandas? What Next?
This is the shortest, weirdest panda we've ever seen. We love it.
Oh. Giraffes, We Guess.
We didn't know teacup giraffes were a thing.
We're trying and failing to be terrified. In fact, we've never wanted to hug a tiger more.
A Rainbow Zebra?! What Is Happening?
Buying a zoo seems like an increasingly reasonable option.
When Will It End?
That's it. We're adopting nine dogs of various sizes just so we can take our tiny zoo on a walk every day to surprise the neighbors.
Also, for the snuggles.
We Legitimately Thought This Doggy Dye Was a Sweater
This isn't a dog. This is art.
If there were a dog museum, we would visit it.
A Spooky Spider Web for Halloween
Finally, a costume your dog won't rip off in eight seconds. Dog hair dye for the win.
Even Better: The Wicked Woof of the West
We can't explain why, but this one is our favorite dog hair-dye look of them all.
Maybe it's because the somewhat patchy dye job makes it look like this pup's fur just naturally grew like that.
Rainbow Hair, Don’t Care
And she's rocking bell bottoms, too. Get this puppy some roller skates immediately.
Looks Like Someone’s Ready for a Disco Theme
And this one? This is roller skate doggo's date. What a handsome good boi.
Someone Took the Mermaid Hair Trend a Little Too Literally
Or maybe just literally enough. She has a built-in mermaid tail.
Ariel better watch out. She's got some competition, and this one's crazy about bacon instead of a boy.
Now, This One’s Just Cute
Paws: Punk rock.
Then, We Get to the Dog Hair-Dye Styles That Are Straight-Up Art
Does she bark at her own butt? It's such a lifelike reproduction of her actual face.
And Dogs That Are Ready for the Holidays a Few Months Early
Yes, Santa? You lost something.
Feel Free to Share a Positive Message via Dog Dye
Write whatever you want, as long as it's nice. Unless your dog isn't so sure about strangers, of course.
In that case, "go away" is perfectly acceptable.
And If You Have a Different Type of Pet Entirely, You’re in Luck
So, hypothetically speaking, one could dye a polar bear hot pink? Hypothetically.
