Atticus gets his cast off in 2 weeks (woohoo!!) so it'll be time for a bath and a hair cut for the first time in 2 months. His hair is sooo long, probably around 3 inches or so, and it'll be too hot for him this summer. I dont want to do the lamb cut, its too common and isnt as masculine as I want him to look. I like alot of the cuts I've been looking at on the internet but dont know how they'd look on a red toy poodle, I've only seen them on standards and minis that are black or white and I really like them. His right front leg hair will be really short since they shaved it when they put on his cast, so he might look a little lopsided lol.

Here's his hair now, what cuts suit him? He looks good in a stache, and I like shaved faces too. I'm really open to anything (except shaved ears, I dont like them on toys), just want something different.




look at his radiculous tail...the wind doesnt have any effect on this. This is how it is normally everyday, lol!


My mom and I are ordering a pair of Andis clippers, some new shears AND a dryer so hopefully I'll be able to do this myself, I want to experiment with them :)

His hair looks very soft and it's going to be difficult to get any cut with length to look plush.

The Dutch (with a moustache) is a good trim for a manly male poo and is stylish.

How does his hair look/hold when it's all fluffed out?

I can't think of any really masculine toy poodle trims at the moment, maybe a nice teddy bear trim? He looks cute with that. Maybe you could try one of those Japanese style ones with the donut mustache and round head, ears, legs, etc. They are really really cute, but they still look masculine to me.

I like this, http://onefinecanine.com/poodlegraham1. webjpg.jpg but it has the shaved ears, so you may not like it.

I saw a great one recently. His back half was a lamb trim, but his front half was full fluff.
Basically you take a 4 or 5 blade from the end of his ribcage to his hips (and over the top to the tail). Blend well at the hips so the rear legs flow nicely into the body. You may either blend the front half into the back, or leave a jacket. I think either way looks great.

It ends up looking a lot like the puppy T-clip (European puppy clip) but with a bit of shagginess to the legs and shorter topknot that keeps it cute and manly.

I do Lincoln and Tsuki with shaved face and feet... short ears. Poofy head. Everything is shaved off except for poms on each ankles.

Oh and Lincoln is sporting a mohawk now. LOL. I'll try to get pictures up soon when they're feeling better.

Oooh I really like the idea of a mohawk! :) Those are so awesome.

i'm not much help but i vote short ears... but i remember he gets flippy ears doesn't he? so i'd go short but not shaved? or shaved with a longer blade...

i can't stand moustaches (living with them) but i think he'd look adorable in the dutch
