People across England and Wales flocked out on Monday to tame their lockdown locks as hairdressers and barbers reopened after lockdown restrictions eased.

But humans weren’t the only ones being treated to a long-overdue haircut as pampered pooches went to the barbers as groomers also reopened this week.

Many long-haired dog breeds, including poodles, labradoodles, spaniels, and pomeranians, normally get their locks trimmed at least every six weeks, so they were in dire need of a haircut when groomers finally opened their doors.

Bone Idol groomers in Brighton, East Sussex, shared some of the dramatic transformations after pooches were given a much-needed trim on their first day of reopening after lockdown on Monday.   

Bone Idol owner Scott Learmouth said: ‘Our customers and their dogs love coming to the salon, and we love to see them, so the lockdown once again has been really hard for everyone.

‘On the first day of opening, and for the foreseeable future we have a packed schedule, and it is really satisfying to see the transformations from drab to fabulous once more.’

Here, FEMAIL shares a selection of the most dramatic haircut trans-fur-mations after these hairy pooches got a trim for the first time in three months.
