About Poodles and Pompadours

At Poodles and Pompadours, we offer vintage inspired styling and grooming services for rock 'n' roll Rovers!

Poodles and Pompadours was founded by Hayley Woodham; a magpie and huge animal lover with an obsession with tattoos, leopard print, vintage & Disney films.

She has already founded one successful independent business (Diamonds and Daggers - www.diamondsanddaggers.com) but juggles between the two to indulge in her main passions in life - dogs and diamonds!

Hayley lives and works in London, England with her 2 chihuahuas, usually surrounded by glitter and organized chaos. Taking design inspiration from the pin-ups and rock stars of the 1940's and 50's; she designs and makes all the creations at Poodles and Pompadours by hand, with the final seal of approval given by Bambi and Bear - her 2 gorgeous chihuahuas!

Hayley started Poodles and Pompadours (Originally named Bambi and Bear.com) when she found it frustratingly difficult to find accessories and apparel for her rock and roll dogs. Not only were the ones in the shops not nearly fun and vintage fabulous enough, they were also always too big, so she set about making her own.

A few "walkies" and a lot of enquiries from impressed dog walkers/owners later, the rest, as they say, is history!

Poodles and Pompadours aims to be the one-stop shop for rock 'n' roll rovers and ultra cool cats! Our pet boutique specialises in handmade, quality items and we're expanding our business to include the UK's first vintage inspired grooming salon, so watch this space!!
