Topknots for male dogs

I was wondering for those of you who have long haired male dogs with topknots could you post pictures showing the top knot? What do you use to tie the bangs back that doesn't look too girly??

I don't think that Raffy looks girly, although sometimes his topknot is more like a top-fountain, which I suppose can be construed as girly. The first picture is Raffy's fully successful topknot. I think he was about 7 months old. The fourth one is what happens to a topknot after a full play session and a nap. Basically, I avoid any ribbons, bows, or using anything but a plain terry hairtie. I did try a method of tucking his topknot under so it would be less fountain-like, but that was causing a lot of breakage so I stopped doing it. I don't have any decent pictures of it to share.

We cut Ricky's bangs short. Then the hair on the top of his head seems to part naturally down the center.

We tried putting a simple "palm tree" with a small rubber band on the top of his head a couple of times when he was a puppy. That lasted all of about two minutes before he pawed it out with his foot. He hated it.

Don't listen to Ricky, he's a macho man. I think the male dogs with palm trees look just fine. Most of the time strangers call Ricky a "she" because of his long hair. It doesn't matter. Havadoggies look great whatever way you want to keep them!

Love Ricky's picture!! :I'm trying to grow the hair out around Rudy's eyes. Right now it's at that awkward stage, and I keep trying to move his hair away from his eyes.

Here are my three... Kodi is on the right. I don't think he looks girly, but I also don't like "palm trees" on my dogs. Kodi's hair naturally falls straight forward, and with bangs, he just looked dorky,.. like Alfalfa on "Our Gang" for those who remember that. (Boy am I dating myself!!!)

To keep it REALLY out of his eyes, we would have had to cut the whole top of his head, which I don't think looks good with a long coat. We ised to use "tiny terries" on his top knot, but once the girls came along, they just pulled them out. So now I just use plain black elastics from Sally's Beauty. They can't seem to get those out!

You mean the Alfalfa from the "He-Man Women Haters Club"? I don't believe Kodi is like that at all!
