I will have to try the triple band behind the 1st band. The first being right behind the corner of the eye. Then you make your 2nd line with 3 bands from that section to right in front of the ear? Just right now since she is only 5 months old just seems like each section I band makes the TK shorter & shorter. Do you have any UKC pictures? It is different with No spray to see a Poodle au natural.

Here are 2 photos from about a week ago. I didn't take any from this weekend of her groom. I also was able to get proper Poodle bands in black, instead of using my thicker bow bands. Echo just has 1 center band in these photos. I will try your method & see how it goes.

Here are a few pics when she was 7 months old. There are not three bands. Just 3 sections behind the first band. The center section behind the first band is brushed or combed forward and the the left and right sides from both the front and middle, are gathered behind the first band into a second band. Like a soldier.

Oops, can't upload the pix. Email me at niliyoung@hotmail.com and I will return pix via email.

By pulling all the front into the top knot, you have shortened it. That's why you separate a narrow center from inside corner of eye to inside corner of eye and band that. That will provide the height. Then gathering up the sides behind will give you a complete bubble and full view of your puppy's ever so pretty face ;-)

Since Raven doesn't have any extra length yet either, I use the "cheater" method....take a section, split it into three sections from left to right, ( make the outer sections smaller than the middle one) then take the outer sections and band them behind the middle one. It works quite well....got his topknot up and didn't take away hardly any length.

I think I might have combined both your suggestions today & it worked well. Now it is starting to fall out but it didn't take all that much height off & I could see her eyes because I was able to gather more hair from behind.

1. 1st section directly behind eye from one side to the other collect all in one band & doing better at getting it centered.

2. take the next section from behind the 1st TK band to the ears, from side to side. Was able to finally able to get that section away from the hair further back on the head. Then I split that section into 3 sections.

3. I took the middle section & banded it. then I split that in 2 & banded the front section with the 1st TK band right in front of it.

4. I took the sections now on either side of that 2nd split band & pulled it together with the split section of the 2nd band.

It worked. I didn't add a 3rd row since she is just a Toy & no reason for more sections of bands. Thank you so much. Next time I do her TK in a day I will post pictures.

Glad you found a way to get the topknot up. Give your baby time. Before you know it there will be more hair than you can manage up there, lol

Thanks for posting this I really needed help on banding topknots. All of our poodles in the past were kept in shorter cuts and I wanted Angel to be a longer look, as well as getting it long enough to play with and experiment with different looks.
