Nigel Waterworth: Scissor & Blade maintenance – The Do’s & Dont’s

Nigel has been involved in the grooming industry directly and indirectly for over 50 years. His mother had a ‘poodle parlour’ in the 60s and 70s before it evolved into a grooming training school that has been running for 30+ years. With his mum and two daughters having been successful groomers and teachers, he finally left the VIP Security Industry to take an active role in the Grooming School and ultimately become a professional Sharpener and Scissorsmith.

Nigel has an enviable reputation in the Sharpening world for high-quality workmanship and sharpens for many of the industry’s biggest names and competitive groomers. He is the designer and part owner of the Japanese-inspired scissor brand Kojiro which specialises in high-end, precision-manufactured scissors and Kojiro grooming oils, which have twice been nominated for ‘Product of the Year’ for the Liz Paul Awards.
Nigel regularly talks and offers advice at grooming seminars and shows on blade/scissor care and maintenance. He is known for his no-nonsense approach and passion for the subject and industry.

Zoe Duffy: Salon-style Bichon

We are delighted that Zoe agreed to do a Bichon demo for us at Style to Rescue!

Zoe has won many competitions in the UK and abroad with many breeds, and she is probably best known for trimming the Bichon. Significant wins include British Groomer Of The Year 1994 & 2005, runner-up three times, and gold medal Intergroom USA; her highest achievement was becoming European Grand Champion at the Oster Invitational Championships 2008 in Prague with a Bichon.

Caroline Chilvers: Clicker training from the dogs’ perspective – using rewards effectively

Verity Hardcastle – Finishing touches to transform a groom.

We are so happy that Verity is sharing her knowledge with us as our judge and as one of our speakers!

It became a tradition that one of our judges would choose a dog from the morning session and, with a few touches, improve the haircut. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from Verity – the multi-award-winning master groomer, author, blogger, and influencer. She will show you how to improve styling, balance, and overall shape on an everyday salon dog.

What People Say...

Nowhere else do I feel safe and at ease leaving my dogs! Especially with a reactive dog. I know Rachel fully understands my dogs’ needs and I can enjoy my break.
