FREE EXCERPT: Accentuating Natural Color - 26 minutes
Watching the Queen of Color, Dawn Omboy, work on this dog took me back to my competitive grooming years. I worked with a great little dog that had an abundance of coat. As she matured, her rich black coat faded to gray. I wish I had Dawn’s knowledge and products back then!
In this lesson, Dawn is not working on a competitive level dog. Our model for this lesson is a client dog, in a haircut created by its owner. His owner does not want gray to show as he ages. With a coat this dark, getting bold and creative colors is not an option, but enhancing his natural black certainly is.
Dawn shows you the steps required to keep a natural black coat truly black. You’ll learn about the products and techniques to make it happen. Even though she is limited by the natural coat color on this dog, she’s still able to unleash her creative spirit. She shows you ways to have fun with a tone-on-tone application.
Granted, the haircut is a little unconventional to those of us looking for traditional balance and style. However, the client loves the work Dawn does. It is very typical for “Chewy” to join his mother at the gym where she works as a personal trainer. Thus, he turns into a walking advertisement for Dawn and her salon in Columbus, Georgia.
Whether you are trying to enhance the natural color of a competition level pet or are experimenting with creative styling, a dark coat doesn’t mean you can’t enhancs its natural shades.
Why should people have all the fun? Join Dawn as she shows you the safe and effective pet products you can use to bring up the natural black coat color this dog once had in his younger years.
In this lesson, you will learn:
- what products work well to bring up the natural black.
- how to apply the product for full saturation.
- how she uses subtle marketing techniques to encourage clients to embrace creative styling.
- how to charge for this type of service.
- how to add some creative flair to a black on black coat.
