These pictures of dogs before and after their haircuts will make you melt

Every dog has its day, or should we say, its ‘do.

Grace Chon, a photographer specializing in animals, recently embarked on a very special project: she photographed dogs before and after getting haircuts in a series called HAIRY. So far, it’s proven to be immensely popular, especially on her Instagram page.

Chon told INSIDER that she realised how much people love before and after images, and this concept would be especially funny if it was applied to dogs. Plus, she’s always trying to find the humanity in the animals she photographs. What better way to seem more human than to wonder what you look like before and after a haircut?

She visited Healthy Spot in Los Angeles and snapped a series of unforgettable photos. Take a look at some of Chon’s work.

Biggie's new style is a lot more manageable.

Raider's hair was so long that it pretty much covered his eyes.

Koko Fukaya did Raider's hair. You can see his puppy dog eyes, which are pretty much begging for a second treat, much better now.

Lana and Raider share a groomer.

On Instagram, Chon made sure to point out Lana's snaggletooth.

Before a trip to the doggy barber, Athena looked like your average shaggy dog.

Donna Owens gave her an incredibly unique and hip new style.

Chon really fulfils her mission of finding the humanity in all these dogs.
