Why do owners grab a chunk of hair in the middle of the head and cut when they want the hair shorter over the eyes?
Why do they cut a big hole smack-dab in the middle of the head?
How do they expect me to fix it?
Okay....so that was three questions.
This little lady came in the other day.
Her Mom had chopped a hole out in the middle of her topknot.
I guess she wanted to get her point across that she wanted the topknot shorter over the eyes.
It actually looks a little better after the bath and blow dry, but there is still a deep hole right smack-dab in the middle.
I always take my topknots short over the eyes.
I learned very early in my grooming career that the hair growing out over the eyes is what a lot of customers complain the most about.
They just don't seem to realize that know matter how short I take the hair over the eyes, it is going to grow back out (over the eyes) before the next grooming.
Here I scissored the topknot like I normally would.
The hole still showed too much.
So, I took the topknot shorter than usual.
The hole was still there, but not as noticeable.
I wish that they would just wait until they came in with the dog.
I will take it shorter over the eyes if you tell me to.
Really I will!
Just ask. :)
Happy Grooming, MFF
