Think there’s no art to dog grooming? Think again!
Taiwanese pet stylist Lee Mei-Chen, 30, began her career as a human hairdresser but has since turned her shears the fine art of fur sculpting.
Ou Shih-jou owns Igogo, the southern Taiwan pet salon where Lee works. She told Reuters photographer Tyrone Siu, who shot these images, that the quirky cuts her shop is known for grew from customers’ desires for alternatives to the typical summer shave.
The salon in opened last September and social media posts have sparked quite a bit of interest; owners frequently pose for pet selfies before leaving the salon. In fact, the Taiwanese appear to love these tribal-esque geometric dog cuts.
“When walking outside, people think it’s amazing and magical. Everyone wants to take a photograph and see what kind of styles they came up with,” pet owner Kuo Yu-lan said.
