1. The Traditional Cut

We would be remiss not to mention the traditional Pomeranian cut on this list. This cut is a timeless classic favored by most Pomeranian owners. To give your Pomeranian the traditional cut, your groomer will trim along your dog’s natural coat shape, outlining his body.

They may also trim a little extra to give your Pomeranian a cleaned-up look and give an extra trim to your dog’s paw hair to make the rest of the body stand out. This traditional cut is the way to go if you want a trim that never goes out of style.

2. The Puff Ball

Pomeranians have lots of fur, and with their small stature, they tend to look like puff balls. So why not lean into it? The puff ball cut gives your Pomeranian an even cut all across his body, giving the fur a poofy appearance.

The tail will be brushed and blown out, making it look like your Pomeranian has a pom-pom for a tail. This cut can be especially useful for preventing knots since the fur is cut short and close to the body. Plus, this trim will make your Pomeranian adorable and Instagram-ready!

3. The Teddy Bear Cut

The teddy bear cut is another classic pick, and it is so adorable that it will make your Pomeranian look like a little puppy again. With this cut, your Pomeranian will have long fur around the neck and body. The rest of their fur will be comparatively short, making this an easily maintained cut.

4. The Blow Out

If you want to add some style and pomp to your Pomeranian’s coat, consider the blow out look. This style will require you to let your Pomeranian’s fur grow out, so you can use a blow dryer to blow out the fur. Since your dog will have long fur all over their body, you may need to spend extra time brushing and maintaining his coat.

However, the glamorous appearance of your pup will be well worth it!

5. The Mini Pom Poof

This is the perfect cut for your tiny toy dog if you have a mini-Pomeranian. The mini pom poof is one of the most adorable fashions you can style your dog’s coat into, and it’s easy to do. Allow your mini-Pomeranian’s fur to grow out, then use a brush to puff up the hair.

This creates a thick, poofy look that makes your Pomeranian look slightly larger.

6. The Long Tail Cut

If you want a look that will focus on your Pomeranian’s adorable tail, you have to check out the long tail cut. This style places an emphasis on one of your Pomeranian’s best features by allowing the tail fur to grow out while keeping the rest of the coat short for contrast.

This cut is also easy to maintain, as most of the hair is cut short and simple to brush.

7. The Long-Layered Cut

With the Pomeranian’s long double coat, your groomer can layer your dog’s fur. Next time you visit the groomer’s, request that your Pomeranian’s fur be layered. This cut will emphasize your dog’s best features; the hair is kept long around the body and tail while being trimmed shorter near the head and the feet.

8. Short Body Cut

The short body cut is the way to go for a simple, easily maintained trim. This trim keeps your dog’s fur short around the body while keeping it long around the head. With this cut, you get convenience and style all at once.

If you have a Pomeranian puppy, this is the cut for you. The puppy cut not only gives your Pomeranian an adorable look but is also easy to maintain. The design is even across the body, giving your puppy a soft and gentle look.

10. The Foxy Cut

Your Pomeranian already has a foxlike face; why not give them a foxy cut to match? This trim is an excellent way to keep your dog’s fur neat without cutting it short. The hair is kept at the same length and is styled so as not to hang too low and collect dirt.

11. The Play Toy Cut

The play toy cut is similar in appearance to the puppy cut, but the fur around the face is left a little longer than the fur around the body. This cut emphasizes your Pomeranian’s adorable looks and soft hair.

12. The Paw Cut

Every once in a while, your Pomeranian is sure to need a trim around the paws. Cutting the fur around your Pomeranian’s paws helps them achieve a full range of motion without slipping or tracking dirt.

13. Little Lion

If your Pomeranian has an especially large personality, the little lion cut will suit them. This cut is a variation of the play toy cut, with the fur cut short all over the body. As a bonus, this cut can reduce the amount of loose hair lying around your home.

14. The Half and Half

For a half-and-half look, your groomer will trim your dog’s hindquarters while leaving the fur around the face, chest, and front paws to grow long. It is a unique look for Pomeranians, so if you want them to stand out among their other toy dog friends, this is the way to go.

15. The Chest Style Cut

The chest-style cut is a variation of the little lion cut. With this style, your Pomeranian will have longer hair around their chest, giving them a majestic appearance. On the downside, the cut can be a bit more difficult to take care of.

16. The Polar Bear Cut

The polar bear cut is the perfect style for white Pomeranians. To achieve this style, your groomer will trim the fur down to about 2 inches all over the body. This creates a fluffy, bear-like image that makes your tiny Pomeranian even more adorable.

17. The Pixie Cut

The pixie cut is a perfect fit for a miniature, loveable dog like the Pomeranian. The fur on your dog’s head is the focus of the pixie cut, as your groomer will need to shape it into a unique pixie style. The fur on the rest of your dog’s body can be left as it is or trimmed shorter to emphasize the dog’s head.

18. The Reverse Lion Cut

The little lion cut and its variations can give your Pomeranian an air of majesty. With the reverse lion cut, you can experience that same regal appearance with a twist. For the reverse lion cut, your Pomeranian’s fur will be short around the head and longer on the chest.

19. The Spiky Style Cut

To make your Pomeranian stand out, try the spiky style cut. This style gives your dog a unique look; their fur will stand on end. The spiky style cut requires fur that is long enough to stand up but not so long that it drags down. Due to this delicate balance, this style can be challenging to achieve without a professional groomer’s help.

20. The Frizzy Tail Cut

The frizzy tail cut adds some extra flair to your Pomeranian’s tail. By cutting the coat over the body short and leaving the tail longer, you can puff out your dog’s tail to give it that fun, frizzy look.
