Ear length should
reach halfway
along the muzzle

NOTES:
• The Bichon head should appear round from the side profile.
• Ears should not be seen from any head profile and should blend into the Bichon’s

round head, using the Bichon’s tight curls to camouflage the ears.
• If your Bichon has highset ears, you can leave more coat on the cheeks of the head

from the front profile.

Nose

NOTES:

• A ratio of five equal parts skull to three equal parts muzzle is ideal.
• If the Bichon has a longer muzzle than skull, you can fix this by leaving more hair on top of

muzzle and not not making the nose snipy, but full of coat.
• Leaving more over the stop will give the appearance of a shorter muzzle.
• From eyes to nose and mouth should be an equal triangle

Black lips and nose

clip or use thinners under the nose,
inbetween nose and including top
and bottom lips to expose black
pigment. Note: if dog does not have
dark / black pigment, do not expose

NOTES:

• The Bichon Frise head should appear round from the front profile.
• Eyes should be soft and round.
• Dark halos around the eyes (give the Bichon his expression).
• Eyes should be dark.
• From eyes to nose and mouth should be an equal triangle.
• More coat should be left on the top of the head than the bottom of the head, this will

give the head balance and will give more height when scissoring the crest/neck.
