Misty Fowler takes you on a creative journey as she sets a fresh, modified, Continental Trim on a cream Standard Poodle. In this fun haircut, she shows you how to shorten the jacket, minimize the tied-up top knot, and use a longer blade over the areas that are traditionally extremely short, making this trim adaptable for any pet, (even ones in cooler climates) immersed in the depths of bitter winters.

In this video you will learn:

  • How to accentuate the structure of the pet.
  • How to outline the jacket.
  • How to tie up a short – and manageable – show style top knot.
  • How to apply hair spray to build height and volume.
