Is your doodle having a hard time seeing because of long eyebrow hair? In this video tutorial, we are going to show you how to do a maintenance groom eyebrow trim. We are going to show you how to trim your doodle’s eyebrows so you can do this for your pup right now and without the help of a groomer!

YouTube video

Chloe had been growing her hair out for about three to four months. As you can see in the video, her hair was quite long and shaggy.

Before the Trim

First start by combing or brushing out your doodle’s eyebrow/forehead hair. Be gentle since this is a sensitive area for dogs.

See how Chloe looks better after I’ve combed her hair back? This won’t help you get a good cut, so after combing, you’ll want to reposition the hairs back to their normal resting place to make them hang over the eyes again.

Trimming the Eyebrows

Once you’ve got that figured out, take your scissors and do an upward-diagonal cut above the eye. Make a few of these cuts until all the hairs, up to about an inch onto the forehead, are cut off.

Repeat on the other side.

Next, you’ll need your thinning shears. Thinning shears will help to blend all the harsh cut lines together to make it look more seamless, natural, and professional. Just cut with the thinning shears one snip at a time, while gradually moving the shears around the area.

The loose hairs will stay lodged in the coat so be sure to use a comb to remove the hairs.

You may even need to use the thinning shears further up on the forehead to shorten some of those long hairs that you didn’t cut off initially.

This all just leads to a more blended, cohesive, professional cut job, so spend as much or as little time as you’d like on this.

In the end, I think I overdid it a little and took too much off, but it also does look kinda cool, like it’s trying to be a mohawk! (Either way, it is just hair, and it will grow back!)
