First came the ‘vajazzle’, a bikini wax with added sparkly gems to jazz up your nether regions, courtesy of The only way is Essex.Now, also thanks to our Essex friends and their unique take on beauty, comes ‘fur-jazzling’.Dreamed up by a dog groomer, fur-jazzling adds some extra pizzaz to any mutt’s rather ordinary-looking fur coat.Victoria Barter, from Heybridge, explained: “Some people think I’m barking, so to speak, but I love the way they look. I think the dogs look great all done up in bright colours and sparkling gems and all of the products are dog friendly. It doesn’t harm them in any way.”The groomer has been dying her dogs Sasha and Squeak for many years, but was inspired by the reality show to add gems to their fur.Victoria, who operates the Cute Cuts Grooming salon from her mum’s garage, said: “I loved the way vajazzling looked on the TOWIE stars, so I thought ‘why not do it on the dogs?'””I think they look super glam. I’ve always loved dying their hair crazy colours and giving them crazy hairstyles.

“The first time I dyed Sasha my mum was fuming. but she’s got used to it now and can see that the dogs don’t mind it.””In fact, the dogs love it because it’s just like they are being stroked or having a massage for an hour while the dye is rubbed in. It would be great to get to design something on one of the TOWIE’s cast pets – matching patterns or colours would be great.”You may notice that the fur-jazzling has been carried out on small dogs – somehow we think a Rottweiler with fairy wings and gems stuck to its coat might be less accommodating.Are dogs perfect as they are or is jazzing their fur up the way to go? let us know below…Be a fan of Lifestyle on Facebook | Follow us on Twitter! | Sign up to our newsletter
