The difference between a bad, or even average grooming day and a GREAT grooming day is how you handle the management of your schedule. In this session, Joe will discuss how to lessen no-shows, late clients, and traffic in your lobby. Joe will also address how you can best manage your time, your staff’s time, and your clients’ time. He will focus on the best use of everyone’s time and how grooming businesses can work toward predictability instead of each day being full of surprises that could have been avoided. Would you like to feel a little more in control of your business? Then this seminar is perfect for you.
Advances in Cosmetic Chemistry have allowed the inclusion of conditioners in shampoos. The 2/1 shampoos can be found that promise conditioning and cleansing in one step. There are advantages to using these products, but conditioners should still be used in your grooming process. However, conditioners are not all the same and include humectants, emollients, hair/coat enhancers, oils, and silicones.
The attributes of each of these conditioner types will be discussed to educate you on proper usage. Some conditioners can be used for enhancing both wet and dry combing, while others are used in finishing sprays to enhance coat shine. The structure of dog/cat hair will be discussed as well as how conditioners interact with the anatomy of hair. Bet you didn’t know that many of these conditioners also soften groomer skin as well as the family pet’s skin!
