2 Toned Dye Work & Feather Extensions

with Lori Craig

This week we've compiled some of our greatest hits for you to rediscover.   

One of our most requested videos is this amazing footage  from Lori Craig - enjoy! 


Would you like to add a splash of color to the toes of any of your light colored pets? Or what about two colors on the lower legs? Award winning creative pet stylist, Lori Craig, shows you how to apply bright colors to any pet. In this lesson she uses her own Chinese Crested to demonstrate how to get this two-toned effect.

To pull the entire look together, Lori shows you how simple it is to add feather extensions. For pets that don't care for bows - feathers can be a great alternative. They are lighter than bows. And they are as "light as a feather!' Most dogs don't even know they have anything attached to their fur.

This is a very fun look that isn't to challenging to do - even if you are a beginner creative stylist.

  • which hair dye offers the most vibrant color.
  • what types of products Lori prefers and why.
  • where to get products.
  • how to put in a feather extension that stays put.

It's Shedding Season
The fur is flying - and I couldn't be happier!

For me, working on a dog that's in the middle of a big-time shed is one of my favorite jobs. I know, I know - you think I'm nuts! It's super messy.  That's why I like it so much.

You can transform a filthy dog and turn it into something gorgeous in no time. With the right tools, the right products and a little bit of elbow grease, you can make a HUGE difference in the way a pet looks and feels in just a few hours.
