How long before their bangs generally grow out?

We drove 5 hrs (1 way) to get Princess, stayed the night, and then started home the next day. She got sick in her carrier on the way home.
Since I didn't have any way to clean her up, we stopped at Petsmart, and I let them give her a bath and cut her nails, and do her paw pads.

My girls and I went to grab a bite to eat, and went back to pick her up. We got her, and the idiots had cut her bangs. Not just right above her eyes either, they had hacked them- big time.

It has been over a month, and they haven't grown a whole lot. How long can I expect it to be before they are grown out enough to be able to do something with them?

I am thinking about showing her locally, and I don't see how that's possible with her bangs all hacked up like this.
Although, we may show in agility, and she can't before she is 18mo, so hopefully by then, they will look normally.

This is not the first time that I have heard that about Petsmart doing something like that. I was told NEVER have your dog groomed at a place like that. and I am sure you didnt tell them to CUT her!! I am so sorry that it happened!! I do not show my dogs so my groomer does cut their bangs short, but I can say by the next grooming at 5 weeks, they have grown considerable. Lily always has one side that grows faster than the other & she looks at you with this big bang hanging over her one eye, like popeye. I would bet it will take about 2 months or so to get them back to where they were.

I have the problem with Dora always ripping out her top knot when she gets bored. She does this quite often and we always have bang problems. As every time she takes it out, she takes some hair out with it. She is just my pet but I like her to somewhat look like a havanese so I try to keep her in about half to 3/4ths coat. When she was younger-about 12 months, we cut her bangs and it honestly took about 4 months to get them back to about half the length they were.

Yeah, I wasn't too happy with them to say the least.. and they didn't just cut it, they hacked it. It looks like my 4yo did it.

Hopefully it will be long enough to pull it back by next month, it's in the grow out stage now, and in her eyes.

Question

Speaking of bangs, we are showing our 8 month old female, Dani, and for the life of me I cannot keep her bangs out of her eyes! When she is not in the ring, I usually put it up in two sections on the top of her head so that she can see. Of course she shakes them out at the first opportunity! When she is in the ring, her bangs cover up her eyes - I can't keep them combed back on the top of her head. Any suggestions?

You are not allowed to use anything on the head to keep the bangs back. Not hairspray, not mousse, nothing! Having the hair drop down over the eye's is something all puppies go through. You can either braid the hair on both sides right above each eye, comb is to the either side, or just have it hand down. Once it grows out, it will behave better and fall down to either side as if it was parted, but isn't parted either. Don't cut it whatever you do, as a Havanese can not be shown with any of the coat cut or trimmed in anyway other then the feet pads or around the feet to clean them up and look neat.

Good luck in the ring!

Kathy, once it's grown out, will it matter for showing? Or is it still going to be really obvious that it was cut?
