Default A question re my toy poodle's hair

My white toy poodle is about 6 months now. He has beautiful hair which is not curly yet. The top layer is straighter and when I lift his hair up, it is curlier underneath. I am guessing he still has puppy hair, so when will it grow in all curly? He has only been trimmed a touch by his breeder a month ago and trimmed around the face, etc. I haven't wanted to cut his hair yet because he is so adorable looking with all of it- and I assume that once I cut it - the new hair will be much curlier?
Thanks!

The hair will curl whether you cut it or not. It is hard to part with that soft puppy coat. Sully, SPoodle, was 6-7 months before I started cutting his hair, and 11 months when I took it down into a Miama since coat change had started and it was matting. Lost his crest. He is now a year, leg hair is still straight, body has curl, but nothing like a mature coat yet, and he is about 1/2" long and letting his hair grow out a bit.

As long as you can keep it tangle free, wait as long as you want to cut it. But it will curl. Now would be a good time to have the groomer start trimming it a bit, just to keep a nice poodle outline and shape.
