I don't know what the "correct answer is, but I think using the papers protects the bows and latex bands sewn on the back. And when you've got as much invested in bows as I do, I want to protect them!

BTW, I get my bows from the Finishing Touch and have been very happy with them.

If you like the top knot just like a puppy top knot, you don't have to fold it over. Mikey's top knot hair is even longer than it was in those pictures. It would just flop in his face if I didn't fold it over or band it back in 3-4 sections.

On double top knots like you see on show dogs, the papers give a much more finished look than if you just folded the coat over with a band. It looks neater and holds better.

It is a personal preference. If I didn't keep his top knot hair so long, I would just put it up in a single band like on a puppy.

Here's a puppy

I agree, he's adorable! I think that is the cut that I'd like to have Izzy in all the time.

Thanks a million. I might just attempt it again! Although Mia wants nothing in her hair. That is why the member picture shows her with one. She had already scratched the 2nd one the groomer put on her!

Catcher will sometimes scratch at his and I think he does that when the knot is too tight. If I loosen it, he'll usually quit attacking it. Also, I try to distract him after I put one in and then he usually forgets about it.

I think your lesson is fantastic for all who need to learn the art of top knots Your model is gorgeous I sure hope she was well rewarded for her effort
I keep Scooby's hair short, and I know if I didn't even a hint of a bow or top knot would be out of the question as hubby thinks it would make him look like a prissy boy, oh well, I guess if ever we get a little girl, I can then enjoy giving her the feminine look.
Great job

The gorgeous top knot model is Jackie's beloved Mikey Man who she sadly lost just a few months ago.

I agree. Everytime I look back on these pictures, it just brings tears to my eyes. I read and re-read the Mikey tribute page all the time to remind myself that even the most beautiful, well-bred Maltese may face health problems (since I'm in the search for my second Maltese...)
