Dogs do some of their own grooming but every once in a while they need a little help. Yoriko Hamachiyo, a dog grooming specialist, has taken it a step further. She has had a dog spa and salon called Yorikokoro for six years and has mastered the craft of transforming cute puppies into perfect fluff balls.
She got into dog haircuts when she took her own pooch to a grooming establishment. “The salon allowed me to work and learn grooming skills,” Hamachiyo told Bored Panda. “I studied during childcare and became a groomer.” Now, Yoriko is perfectly able to offer bathing (a basic bath), grooming (trim), and a luxury spa treatment to other cute dogs herself. She works mainly with small dogs, spending about two hours with a client. “I am praying for a happy life [for both] the owners and the beautiful dogs.”
We’ve collected some before-and-after pictures of Yoriko’s four-legged clients, and it’s hard to believe they show the same dogs. Sometimes, the groomer spices up their photoshoots with a few accessories, too. Bow ties seem to be her favorite! Scroll down to check out the pawesome Japanese style makeovers she gave to the lovely pooches.
