Here is a simple video that will show you how to make a maintenance topknot for your shih tzu.  The result of your first attempt might be a little different than what you will see in this video.  But don't worry, you can do it perfectly in no time.  Remember, practice makes perfect 🙂  

Just make sure you have the following tools when doing the maintenance topknot:

  • grooming bands
  • pin brush
  • pin tail comb
  • wrapping paper/tissue
  • band cutter
  • chin pillow

The shih tzu in this video is newly bathed so no other steps were made. But if you are going to do this on a shih tzu that hasn't taken a bath, you might need to dry the facial hair first with blower or with the use of cornstarch before wrapping it.
