A good bathing and drying job is easily 50% of a great groom and 100% of many! The bathing room has been the starting point for every successful stylist and the active salon needs to pay more attention to this important position. With an emphasis on safety and efficiency, Teri guides this fun and informative all-day seminar through an average day in a busy salon. Safe handling practices and a keen focus on time-saving tips and techniques will help save time and improve the finished work. This seminar is a real eye-opener for the groomer technician as well as a lesson in efficiency for the seasoned salon owner. From check in to check out, integrating a salons’ bathing staff into the check-in and prep process gives them responsibilities that will make a busy salon hum like a well-oiled machine. This session will include the efficient use of tools and safety restraints and tasks such as nail trimming, ear cleaning and brushing. Safety and comfort of the pet, dematting techniques and tools and their proper use will be presented. Teri will take a “groomers-eye” look at shampoos, conditioners and sprays and why they work. Quick, efficient bathing and proper application of the products you use can make all the difference in the feel of that coat at the end of the groom. Teri will discuss the proper use of the equipment as well as different drying techniques. You will learn to dry coats quicker to help you get a better scissor finish.
