  • Lemon head

    Has anyone ever heard of this? This Saturday we had a client come in to the shop that I work in, and they wanted a lemon head on their Bichons. I have never heard of this term.

        Sounds sour to me

        Do they want the little bump on it too. Well then there are real round lemons, guess they call those lemons Bichon shaped.

        Nope not heard of that.

          I've see Bichons with Egg shaped heads where I work and the way my boss does them to accentuate the shape of the head they look like humpty dumpty when their done. I guess that would kind of look like a lemon in my mind don't know what's in your customes eyes though.

            Do they mean a lemon on it's end? Or a lemon on it's side????? You got me.

                  My boses have these plates of Bichons above a doorway. The people chose one that looked like a show puppy head which was very full. So when they came in and asked for a lemon head, my boss said that he knew what they were talking about. He cut their very full heads down to a little short on top and kind of wide at the cheeks. I didn't like the look, but then again it isn't my shop. I guess that I will have to do some more research about this term.

                  Thanks for your help.

                    YES I saw some photos!

                    OMG, I saw my first Lemon head last night as friends and I were surfing some of the sites from the on-line trade show area , best web sites!
                    I couldn't believe it! They were Lemon shaped heads for sure! and yes, short on top, short on under jaw, and great big fluffly ears! Sure lemon shaped! I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Just my opinion, but they looked awful! I do a lot of Bichons, never had a head turn out remotely looking like a lemon!

                    So why would a groomer leave the side of the head (aka ears) long and sticking out, when it's so easy to make a rounded head by trimming some off the outter ear? And mind you these dogs did have trimmed ears, so they were not being left long...I just cracked up.

                    Sorry, if a client came in to my shop and requested such a look, ear left like that on purpose, I'd invite them to the door and explain that I don't make a dog look like that on purpose. Sorry, just can't bring myself to make that look, when is is so incorrect. AND I probably wouldn't be able to do it anyway!

                      I had not heard of this cut before, but I am really glad that I saw it mentioned here. (That's why I love this forum, it's great to learn new things and keep informed) I plan to look into this cut further so that I can offer it if I get requests. Thank you for posting this!

                        I agre that it didn't look right. When you look at a bichon, you should see a full round head even if it is small. Per owner's request. But I guess that is what it is all about (The Owners).

                            Actually, the way my boss taught me to do westie heads was to explain it should make a half moon from the ear to the chin.

                              I was googling bichons just to browse through pictures (wow I lead a boring life, don't I?) and I came across this:

                              I'm guessing by lemon head they may have meant a bell shaped head?
