Thanks everyone. My FIL used to groom their toy poodle, so he thought he was helping. The problem is that he has a non-functioning arm, and his other hand was recently injured so he thought he could do it, but stopped when he realized he couldn't. He didn't do too bad of a job considering, but the unevenness was in the beard, not the mustache. He had only cut the front of it, and had left the back of his beard longer figuring I would fix it later (he said Buzzy was getting water all over the house from drinking, and in fairness he was due for a face trim). BUT, I expected the groomer to just even that out and make the mustache match (since it was a little longer in the back too). What she did is a hatchet job all over.
My DH picked him up and I was in a meeting so I couldn't take his calls. Not only did he pay her, but he tipped her 20% thinking that I asked her to do this. His first question to me was: Why did you pay someone to do this to him when you do a much better job? I just hope it grows out fast (although, I bet it will take FOREVER). I can't believe this woman is a professional! Next time I will find the time to groom him properly. Please send Buzzy hair growing vibes! And some more pics (the first one of what Buzzy SHOULD look like (cut short), the next 2 taken yesterday, and the final of Oscar (gratuitous puppy pic).
