Help need pics of good haircuts!

I am taking Wesley for his first haircut and do not want to come home with a dog that is shaved. I just want him a little shorter over all and his face trimmed. The last time I took him to PetSmart he did really well, except they cut his visor WAY to short and it still hasn't grown out. I am so afraid they'll shave his body and he'll end up looking like a Bichon. PLEASE no offense to Bichon owners, but I don't want Wes to end up with the very round looking head that you see with Bichons. My mom has always had her Lhaso and Lhaso Mix shaved all over and head trimmed short and my hubby hates it. So if I take a picture in, will they even pay attention?
I am desparate because my son is taking the dog for show and tell this week and of course the appointment is Wednesday.
Nothing like waiting till the last minute!

Here are my guys. I cut them all the same way. I normally use clippers with a 1/4-1/2 guard. Good luck with the cut! Post pictures please.

Here are Marley's pictures of his first haircut.....The first one is the picture I showed to the gal...telling her that since it's "baby's first haircut", I really didn't want that much cut..etc., etc....

The second image is how the haircut actually ended up looking like...definitely much, much shorter than expected and I sort of was in shock for a moment, but since I really liked the gal overall and he still looked very cute, I didn't mind so much..

The third one is what he looks like now...almost 6 weeks later...it's getting slowly to the stage that I had wanted originally <g>.

I do think that I'll have her do something similar again next time.....If I have him groomed every 2 - 2 1/2 months, it will work out to be somewhat affordable and since he can't stand being combed etc. it is good for him to be at a length that doesn't tangle....I'm not big on the "tangle wrestle" or having to ask one of the girls to pin him down while I comb....the grooming supplies are his favorite chew toys if he can get hold of them <g>

That's exactly how I want his body, not too short.
Do you suppose I can take several pictures in and give them the different body parts? I'd probably get my name put on THAT list of THOSE customers!
