My guys were always kept in a puppy cut except for Scuds. I know some people say not to do this, but I would trim the eye area. I used curved scissors with balls on the tips. I still cut around their eyes every month.

I used tiny clips to keep the hair out of Scudder's eyes.

I know lots of people on this forum have used good ol' chapstick to slick the hair down around the eyes/face while it is growing... if you trim it, typically you have to keep up with trimming it or go through the same growing out phase.

Hair was always in Jack's eyes, probably why he teared so much. I got in the habit of combing the hair away from the eyes. I mean he had lot of little strains of hair in his eyes. I just had to stay on top on it and keep the hair combed out of his eyes until the hair grew longer. I also cut between the eyes.

It will eventually grow and you can put it up in a tip knot. As the hair on the face gets heavier, it will lay flatter (well, usually but not always). Sometimes it's hard to tell if they have eyes, especially with a black face!!
