Glamorous dogs make the grade in many different ways: menswear, hairstyles, accessories, the works. This new pup on the block is here to make waces with her locks, and is killin’ it on Instagram.
Meet Kuma. Kuma is a Shih Tzu and Pekingese mix who enjoys a new hairstyle everyday — as well as 20,000 Instagram followers. It’s all thanks to her silky tresses and her daily creative ‘dos.
Whether she’s sporting pigtails…
Or a bonny sidetail…
… or holiday braids, Kuma’s got that flair.
Aren’t her glitzy buns so sweet?

Kuma is matsuri-ready with this classy bun and hair ornament.
She makes this flower crown so perfect.
Her tresses are giving us life.
All this glamour doesn’t come easy. Shih Tzu’s need daily brushing to prevent clumping and tangles. It’s best to start this brushing habit from a very early age to get your Shih Tzu used to this level of grooming. You may also need an array of brushes and combs, along with hair products tailor-made to give your dog’s coat the shine and strength it deserves.
Bathing is best done once a week, or any time that a bath is in order. Using a baby tub is best for a Shih Tzu; keep handy a bottle of shampoo, a bottle of conditioner, as well as a liter or to of water to dilute these to keep the formulation gentle.
