We’ve now finished the back leg as well. We’ve done it as we can to the front legs, and I’m now going to do her top knot. Take up the trim and the thing you’d have all the raise her up come after he is. So make sure you combed the tangles out there as is and then all out.
Once you fluffed it up, separate the hair out. This is sort of chrysanthemum with the center piece, coming out there is down of her nose. A little essence just a little near with the fronts and at just at the back. Pluck little out like that. Once you separate this out, put the bottom end of your scissor carefully, carefully in along the corner of the eye, and snip along the line that you have cut with your clippers, along the line quite close over the top it’s here. You feel with the bottom end of your scissor where they rest, and then you go over the top of it and you snip. Straight over the top, and there again, we cut a straight line.
Firstly, straight over the top of the ears there. You do exactly the same the other side. Straight line from the corner of the eye along the line that we’ve clipped over the top of it is in. When we get to the back, we turn it around to form this small lock and take off all of rubbish that you don’t need. Just so because you’ve now cut out the basis for your top knot to call that off, then carefully flip the back and you find just a little more rubbish left there and take that off as well.
Now, you can see why we wanted the straight line along there that straight line is there because it’s a guide to as to where you put your top knot, and you see your straight line right away along, cut it down, go down the ear. Unfortunately, her ears are a bit messy because she just had few bit chopped out to them, but we’re going to blend that to whole in a minute.
We’ll do the same the other side, bring it around till it mix at the back. Pull the ear forward, we take a full of the rubbish again, exactly as we did that side. Come up for this we haven’t separate to the top knot after we’ve –—so cut it with it pull in the center. Now we flick it up. We still haven’t touch the front and we start to blend it in. And now you begin to see it take shape.
If you look at it from that side it comes out slightly. I don’t like them cut right back because it tends to make Poodle looks teary, and Poodles should have nice, small iron-shaped eyes. And if you just cut that little, little bit of hair coming out there, it just makes them look —their expression look a little nicer. To check your own top knot, put comb through it and comb it back and if a few sticks out, she’s blended in.
