Grooming a Drop-Coated Mixed Breed in a Hand-Scissored Layer Trim - Part 2

You either love this coat or hate it. Lots of breeds have this coat texture - the drop-coat. How many of you have owners that want their pet styled a bit longer than even the longest guard comb can leave it? Lindsey shows you a fun and easy way to go 'freestyle.' She uses a great technique to freehand scissor this super cute little Lhasa mix. To get the soft, cuddly look, she uses mostly thinning shears and blenders. Lindsey shares tricks to get a beautiful, plush finish in no time. She talks you through the entire trim including how to use reference points as you work so you get a consistent look every time

Part 2:  
Styling the Head and
Finish Detail Work
 
The most important part of this groom is the head piece. Even if the rest of the trim is a little off, if the face is super cute, the owner is going to love the haircut! In Part 2, she shows you how to get an adorable, soft little face that frames the eyes. This little dog had an overabundance of ear coat offering a great lesson on how to set the ears into the head piece.
