Pet grooming professionals cannot seem to get enough of this style. Asian Fusion.
What is Asian Fusion?
Basically – it is a whimsical grooming style inspired by cartoon characters. Sometimes it can be extreme – to a point it is not practical for the everyday pet owner.
However – when done in a modified version – it can be very practical. Even for active, outdoor pets. And simple to do too! Plus, the look is super cute.
Megan VandenBerg is an award-winning Certified Master Groomer. She is one of the top producing stylists at Whiskers Resort & Pet Spa, owned by L2GD Founder, Melissa Verplank.
In this lesson, Megan is working on an active, rough and tumble Kerry Blue Terrier. The owner loves the breed – but not all the hair.
Megan custom created this haircut just for this dog. For the owner, it is easy to maintain and keep up. For the stylist, it is an easy haircut to execute and keep up on a 4/6-week appointment rotation. Plus, it is just SUPER cute!
Just because Megan demonstrated this haircut on a Kerry Blue Terrier, it is an adaptable style to many curly and drop coated dogs, purebred, or mixed breed!
