Grace Chon’s New Personal Project – HAIRY!

July 26, 2016 in Grace Chon, Kim Knight Represents, Uncategorized

We can’t get enough of Grace Chon’s stupendously adorable new photo series HAIRY that has gone viral over night and is gaining increasingly more attention from the press! These images showcase the before and after transformations of a group of seriously shaggy pups. To prepare for the shoot, each dog grew their hair much longer than usual and were each given a new ‘do using Japanese style grooming by the groomers from Healthy Spot. From her experience capturing the transformation Grace learned a lot about the art form of grooming; “I don’t have dogs that get groomed, but watching the groomers up close made me realize how much time and dedication goes into a cut especially when the majority of it is being done by hand with scissors. The groomers I had the pleasure of working with are so creative and great at what they do.”

Currently, you can see the series on: Bored Panda, Design Taxi, Hello Giggles, My Modern Met, Yahoo, Dog Milk, If It’s Hip It’s Here, Insider, Refinery29, Adventures of Yoo and The Huffington Post. The list keeps growing!

Beware of cute-overload!
