Long hair no bangs no top knot

Hi all,

I was wondering if havanese hair eventually falls to either side if the face when grown out.
I'm growing Rudy's hair and his formerly cut bangs fall in front of his face. Right now the bangs reach his nose. The groomer said when it gets long enough, it will fall on either side. His hair in top of his head is silky and straight. The pictures I see of havanese with long hair look like they almost have a colick above each eye so it stays away from the eye area. I'll try to post a picture of what I talking about.

I would love to see pictures of the long haired havs. Also has anyone tried one long side braid starting at the top center and bringing it to one side?

Here's a picture of a long haired havanese and the bangs go to the side. I think Rudy's hair will fall straight down in front of his face.

Lisa, that pretty dog in the photo is a show photo, with freshly groomed hair. I am sure it doesn't fall like that as soon as he walks off the grooming table or out of the ring.

I have yet to see a Havanese whose full coated hair falls to the side of his face, but I wish you luck on that! You'll have to take photos to keep a record and show us how it goes.

Krandall has a picture of her Kodi in braids, and he was a handsome, swash-buckling looking fellow! Very handsome! You can find photos online of a couple, too.

I do not do either. He was in full coat for 10 years, and now he's clipped shorter because of some aging issues. I keep his "topknot" area trimmed.

I agree with Sheri. My Sophie had such thick bangs as a pup even she could hardly see. I left Sophie's bangs long until we showed in the puppy classes in the breed ring and the day after the show we had an appointment to trim her bangs. It was so fun watching her after the cut just staring at everything! She'd stare up at the trees, birds flying over etc she never did that before and was finally able to chase a ball in a straight line rather than going off at the wrong angle and waiting to hear where it fell.

I prefer to trim her bangs, I tried the top knot but even though I conditioned her slowly and she was good about it she really didn't appreciate it and would paw at it and it would come out anyway. I think both ways are cute and I know many do the top knot. Sophie is just a tomboy.

Rudy is such a beautiful puppy! What color?

Tucker is so adorable!!!!!!! <3

At some point Karen (krandall) posted her opinion that the only way to get the bangs of a Havanese out of his/her face without using some sort of tie or clip is to use a lot of product. Shama's hair falls straight over her eyes if it is not clipped back. I know that she can see through that hair, however, because she's responded to subtle hand signals from a distance, and she doesn't run into things while doing zoomies. A trainer friend said that for a briard (the kind of dog she has), looking through bangs is like looking through a lightweight curtain.

At some point, I will try braiding Shama's hair. For now, I twist it, mush it forward so that it's not pulling tight, and clip it with a claw clip. In this photo, I used three decorative clips, but they don't hold as well as my plastic clips.

Someone on the forum recommended this product. I like it for keeping wispies out of her eyes during photo shoots, but it isn't strong enough to get a look like the dog in the photo you posted.

Please do keep us posted on Rudy's hair . . .
