Ugh...

Most of the Korean cut on Maltese do not have topknot (for boys), and I am seriously thinking about it now. Obi's cut is one of my Favorite for no topknot look, and I've been digging all his photos from the forum and been admiring it.
But yes, Marisa is right though- it will def take very long time to grow it out once you chop it off..... I suppose once you cut it, you just have to maintain them.


BUT I am still seriously considering them. I wonder how other members in SM feel about their boy fluffs without topknot??
See, it's not even the functional part of it that concerns me. I just like switching things up. How would you ever find out what you like best if you haven't tried everything out there!! I'm getting very tempted to try the no topknot look on Gustave. This is how he looked as a puppy.

That's still cute, so IMO topknot cutting is low risk.

I do love his topknot though. I don't have to worry about it for 2-3 months but as you probably know by now, I like planning in advance, haha.

I have to say, I do love Gustave with a top knot and I think the top knot totally fits his name...GUSTAVE...he's sooo totally a boy super model.

I let her groomer cut it about 2 years ago. Big mistake! She warned me Spookie wouldn't look like a puppy, and she didn't. She does the Veronica Lake look now, I've been thing of trimming it just a little bit.

I love the top knot. I love the elegant look of a double top knot. I love doing funny, silly things too.



Somehow, it seems inevitable that sometime you will need to give your Malt a haircut. My feeling is that I keep the long hair as long a possible. Yes, it grows back, but it takes a very long time.

You must have noticed all the girls swooning over Gustave. I suggest that if you want to get a Korean cut, you go with keeping the top knot the first time. You can always have it cut later.

That picture you posted is an exceptionally nice haircut. Can you have Gustave styled by that groomer?

Well one thing is for sure, Gustave will look adorable without a topknot, I don't need Photoshop to tell me that! But he's adorable with his topknot too! I love the way a topknot looks but I'm sure it can be a hassle sometimes.

I love Madison's topknot and would never, ever cut it - I don't even like to trim it! Paxton, on the other hand, does not have one. I love the picture you posted and have to admit I copied it to use on Paxton. I love the ears and beard on it!

I think Gustave runs Zero risk of not looking cute no matter the hair! Post up the pics if you photoshop him .

When I got penny she had a thick, long TK. I had never dealt with one so I became overwhelmed with now having two dogs very quickly. Her and Sam were playing non stop so it was constantly needing fixed. I flix it and look down and hair sticking out...lol. Anyway- I had her TK and body cut down in a puppy cut.

Always good idea to remind the groomer (if you choose) not to cut (between his eyes) and let beard stay long over his nose. I've seen many people (me included) that came back and it was all trimmed between eyes bec groomer said its supposed to be that way. Took me forever to grow Sammie's face out after our first groomer trimmed between his eyes (on her own) when he had his first puppy cut.
And some may have a residual curl/kink on top of head from being pulled up for so long. My groomer has been grooming pedigree dogs for 20 yrs. she told me you never know which ones will kink. She seen older ones that have some permanent kink. I know Marj's Bailey, straightened quickly. Penny's lasted for months is why I mentioned it. She said something to do with a bent hair shaft causing a kink as the hair grows out (? but don't quote me..) With Penny it looked like it was where bands were. Might not happen with Gustave.
Oh yea, do I regret it? Well I miss the TK look, but not the hassle. Maybe it's more comfortable for her being free of bands. I settled for a happy middle and grew her top just enough to still wear a mini pony tail with a bow when we go out. It just doesn't start from her eyes now, it's set back on top of her head. And you can add little from the front of her ears too. Post pics if you decide to do it. He will be a cutie pie!!

Out of my three malts, I only miss Abbey's top knot. For some reason, her face just looked cuter with one ....I don't know why, it just did.
