Lindsey demonstrates how to trim her ‘Bella-Bottom’ trim. When we asked Lindsey how she came up with the name, she shrugged and said, “I named it after Bella,” as she gave the little Yorkshire Terrier a pat as she stood on the grooming table. “She belongs to my vet, but she kept getting matted. This was the solution one day when she was exceptionally matted. The owners loved the haircut. We’ve been doing it ever since!”

This a great solution for any drop coated breed that matts easily; Yorkies, Malteses or ShihTzus. It’s an easy trim to do and grabs attention every because it’s so appealing. Lindsey, being a horse woman as well as an awarding winning pet stylist, says the feet remind her of a Clydesdale. Combine those fun furry feet with an adorable head style and you have a winning ticket. This trim is super stylish and easy to do, and that translates into easy money in your pocket!

Lindsey shows you how to set the body of this trim. What blade length options work well and what types of shears shelikes to use to detail out the trim.

In this video you will learn:

• How to neaten the pattern once it’s set.

• Where to set the bells.

• How to get the flair on the feet.

• Tips on how to get at the tight spots.
