Doodle Style

by Admin 6. February 2014 11:32

There are several different styles we can create with a Doodle that happens to have a Poodle coat. Since they are not a pure bred dog, there is no breed standard as to how they are supposed to look. In this photo, the Doodle has a lion tail like a Portuguese Water Dog and a head that is similar to a short Bichon Frise type head with shaved ears. The length of this coat requires weekly bathing and brushing.

Bad Ear Sets

by Admin 6. February 2014 11:19

In our salons, we tend to see a lot of mixed breeds or improper looking pure bred dogs with ears that are difficult to get even when they are not physically set correctly. If this is the case, suggesting ears trimmed around the leather or shaved will turn out the best looking groom! If you decide to shave the ears, start on the outside where the ear naturally starts to bend. In doing this, you won’t leave the ears looking pinched.

Matted Poodle Coat

by Admin 27. November 2013 11:08

If you have a client that walks in your shop looking like this, don’t always assume a shave in necessary. Some Poodle and Poodle mix type coats will blow loose with your high velocity dryer after bathing and conditioning. After the bathing, conditioning and proper drying was done on this pooch, all was needed was a slicker brush and metal comb to brush and comb as normal. Great job Beth!

Products to highlight are:

Large Comb

Self Cleaning Slicker

Excel Clipper and attachment combs

Double Coated Haircuts

by Admin 22. November 2013 05:08

When an owner requests their double coated breed to have a haircut. Always start off by suggesting a longer attachment comb cut instead of shaving them, it is best to educate them on the dangers of shaving and the possibility of the coat growing back  thin, patchy or not at all.

Andis Master Tatoo

by Admin 28. October 2013 10:12

I’m often asked about how things are changing in the barbering profession. One of the things that comes to mind is how tattoos are becoming more prevalent - especially among young barbers. I see all kinds of tattoo art but it’s rare to see a serious barber/tattoo fan who does not have an Andis Master in ink.  I started to be impressed with how times I see high-powered industry professionals with visible Andis Master tattoos. It’s almost like a badge that lets you know they’re a real pro. Most people getting fad tattoos are getting really, really bad ones and I doubt they’ll want to be showing those off in their later years. 

For what it’s worth, I’m 36. I have 2 tattoos. I wear long sleeves to work every day and rarely let anyone I don’t know well know about my tattoos. My next one will be an Andis Master!

Stripes on a Cat

by Admin 17. October 2013 10:18

Creativity is for cats too! To achieve this look,  start off by using a #7FC and clip in desired pattern. (This cat happens to be in a Barbary Lion Trim). Next grab your 5/8 Toe Blade and get to work on those stripes. If desired, blend the mane in with thinning shears.

Full Coat Transformation

by Admin 17. October 2013 09:45

Transforming a dog from full coat into a longer haircut is not always easy if the coat is really soft. Start off with using a texturizing shampoo, make sure that the dog is squeaky clean and dried straight. If you cage dry, you will not be able to acheive a nice finish no matter how well you scissor. Using a #10 or #30 Show Edge blade under your stainless attachment combs will also help prevent marks in the coat. Be sure to clip in the direction that the coat naturally lays and back brush to make sure the clipper work is even.

Even though the client wants the head tied up, it is still in balance with the rest of the haircut. The top of the nose and corner of the eyes are left to give the dog a soft expression.
