Creative Grooming Off the Dog
Dawn Omboy  
Dawn Omboy affectionately calls herself a "hair hoarder" - and with good reason. She collects dog hair. Lots of dog hair! With her creative mind, the opportunities are endless. She is always coming up with fresh new ideas for the creative pet grooming world - both on the dog and off!


Dawn's personal mission is: "Making the world a more colorful place, one dog at a time."


She is a well-respected and award-winning creative pet stylist. Her workshops are routinely packed with pet stylists who want to learn her creative secrets.


At the Atlanta Pet Fair, Dawn was wearing a unique accoutrement in her hair. At first glance, it looked like a large, beautiful, white flower. However, upon closer inspection, it was not a flower - it was hair. Dog hair! ...And it was gorgeous! Her floral headband was a huge hit as she wandered around the trade room floor. Everyone wanted to know how she had made it!


Here is your chance! In this video, she demonstrates how to make sculpted dog hair flowers and her classic silk "Pixie Posies." Her directions are easy to follow. BONUS! You will learn her favorite products and tools for this type of creative work.


Our bet is that after you watch this, you might become a hair hoarder and a collector of silk flowers, too!


Approximate total running time:  28 minutes     


In this video you will learn:

  • how she collects hair switches and swatches.
  • how to make multiple types of hair flowers.
  • how to add "oomph" to your creative creations.
  • how to make her classic "Pixie Posies."
  • how to attach the creations to show them off.

It's like having a private coach right in your computer every month!

Grooming a Maltese in a Modified Schnauzer Trim    

This modified trim combines styles from the Brussels Griffin and the Miniature Schnauzer. It's an easy trim for the pet salon and looks great on a wide variety of breeds. The key is to look for dogs with a round top skull and enough coat to give a slightly fuller leg.

This client has spent a lifetime showing Maltese's in the AKC conformation show ring. She is very set in her ways on a couple areas of her dog. Judy discusses how she keeps the client happy while abiding by her wishes.


The end result of this haircut is striking. But when you're working with such a gorgeous specimen of a dog, it's hard to make them look bad!


Estimated Run Time:  28 minutes
