How do I groom a Puli?

HI, I am a dog groomer with quiet a fair bit of experience but I have a lady coming in on friday with a 'Puli that needs braiding... from what I know, all i should be doing is seperating the cords that are already in place, but she told me via email that she has already.. 'braided the head, but dont have time to do the rest'.... I'm a little stuck..does anyone have grooming pictures or helpfull advice? I'm comfortable with the bathing and drying process and can advse her on that (I dont think she wants to pay an hourly rate for that job!Lol!) Really stuck here, any answers from experienced groomers or breeders of puli's would be very gratefully recieved. many thanks :-) (I did tell her a couple of times I have never had a puli step foot in the door! But she was not concerned (?) I won't be charging hr anything at all if the result is not what she wanted - trouble is the net keeps telling me they form naturally.... othr than seperating the cords as they are forming..
