    • I wish I had some good advise. I did my girl orane for Halloween once. It was not supposed to be a permanent dye. Well, it turned out to be. She is corded so I couldn't just cut it off with her future groomings. Instead I had to wait and wait and wait for the cords to grow out long enough to me to trim the ends back to a length that wasn't orange.

    • I dyed my toy poodle the light pink color from the Opawz permanent line back at Halloween time.  It has lightened some with weekly baths but it is not getting any lighter any more.  I am ready for my white girl back (when I used that color I did not realize it was permanent at the time....yay me).  Is there ANY WAY to get the color out?  I have already tried the Ion color lifter from Sally's Beauty (she has a good bit of growth from when she was origionally dyed so I made sure no contact with skin happened and I also used one that other groomers have used before and I researched it throughly prior to using it) and it did absolutely nothing.  Also have tried the Vitamin C with no results.  Is there anything else I can try?  I have attached a picture of her which was taken not long very long ago so you can see her current "pinkness".

    • Hi everyone! I haven't been around in a LONG time. The last few days I have been catching up on everyone (sad to see its so slow!!!) I've been searching for info on becoming certified as a color specialist...does such a thing exist? I have finally found my niche and I'm ready to invest in my future, but I'm trying to figure out how to do it. ( did I never make the connection of pixie being THE queen of color?? I had a good laugh at myself over that today by the way). I've sent off for some blow pen color, I also ordered some green top performance. That's all I have so far...well that and a creative imagination! I know it's a meager start, but I'm determind. No one in my are does color! And I live in a pretty nice area, so I was shocked lol 

      Anyway, classes? I'm in the Dallas area (ish). Types of color you use? Any tips?

      Thanks in advance :)

    • I found the color itself makes a big difference. Red and any variations of red, such as orange or burgundy tend to last much longer than blues, greens and yellows.

    • Congratulations!


      Manic Panic and Dawn's Queen of Color are usually pretty temporary, fading out a little bit with each washing. Some colors are longer lasting than others. I've used Beyond Zone many times. I used the Beyond Zone orange for Halloween one year and it was still there over a year later.

    • Laughing  Finally got my own Standard Poodle!  Sully is almost 4 mos. old and of course, white.    Already tried some coloring for Halloween and my kool-aid attempt failed plus the blowpen colors are still showing in his coat.   Are puppies' coats more porous than adults?   By next Halloween would love to turn him into Sully from Monster's Inc, but I really do not want a color that will stay on his coat for months.


      What products are there that are temporary?  My friend has used Avatar colors and those do not fade, as she found out.   Impossible to change.  


      Any tips, advice or just point me in the right direction will be appreciated.   Thanks.

    • that would make a bit more sense, as that is what the controversy pertains to.  But if it hasnt happened this year it will have to be reintroduced next year as our legislative session is over.

    • I haven't had a chance to really dig into this, but from what I've heard, it is being amended allowing coloring of dogs and cats, but not the coloring of baby chicks and bunnies for resale.

    • our elected officials in Florida nee to concern themselves with more important issues such as getting insurance rates under control so working people can afford to live here instead of something that does no harm to our pets.

    • With all the comments made already, I hope she's wishing that she had never opened that can of worms.

    • Oh good grief. Frown


      The comments posted so far on her page which support coloring are great, I'll be adding to them. Of course she chose a god-awful pic to put on there, ugh.

    • Hi Groomers Lounge Friends,


      Here in Florida one of our state senators has introduced a bill to reinstate the ban on coloring pets.


      Florida state senator Maria Sachs writes on her Facebook page: "Our pets are our companions, not fashion accessories. This week I filed a bill to reinstate the ban of color dye on #animals @huffpostmiami"


      She additionally comments: "Phyllis - this bill goes to the heart of responsibility within our society to take care of each other and our pets.'

      Please take a moment to let her know that canine color has nothing to do with how our society takes care of our pets and that most pets that indulge in a little color are some of the best cared for by their pet parents.


      Her facebook page is:

    • I was so excited I held a class to bring color to the sunshine state at Bow Wow Boutique in Tampa.
