I Wish I Was a Dog So I Could Have This Lisa Frank Leopard Print Hair Dye Job
Lisa Frank‘s iconic and immersive world full of bright colors has always made for great inspiration in the beauty industry — see: nail polish and nail wraps, shimmering eye shadows, and a complete Morphe makeup collection dedicated to the artist’s colorful vision. In recent years, her signature colorways filled with neon pink, purple, and yellow hues sparked a rainbow hair trend that now has officially made its way into the grooming salon — for a furrier kind of clientele.
Brazilian dog groomer Gabriel Feitosa, an advocate for safe and creative dog grooming, transformed a beige-coated Chihuahua mix dog named Molly into a true Lisa Frank vision with a rainbow-infused, leopard-and tiger-print canine (complete with eyebrows, I must add).
On July 12, the official Lisa Frank Instagram account took such a liking to Molly’s makeover that it reposted the groomer’s clip to its own grid as well. The brand captioned the video, “#LisaFrank transformation! Totally safe & totally cute!!” Each dye used was both vegan, non-toxic, and — most importantly — specifically designed for pets.
Feitosa began by outlining a tiger’s print onto the pup’s coat of fur with Opawz black dye – drawing the stripes on her forehead, muzzle, and crest. He first filled each circular tiger print with Opawz’s blue, green, and pink dyes, marking the beginning of this rainbow frenzy. Then came the outburst of vibrant shades when he covered every inch of Molly’s body except for her chest and belly. A shade of tiger-bright orange was used to outline the area around the eyes while shades of purple, green, yellow, and blue were blended throughout the pup’s fur.
