Finding What Works for You

When Darius left the salon that taught him his craft, there was a sense of sadness and finality he couldn't shake. But, Darius knew that if you never take risk, you'll never know the rewards. Now an Andis groomer, Darius puts what he learned to the test every day, and becomes a better, more well-rounded groomer. Darius takes inspiration from other groomers, especially Asian groomers, who inspire him to keep growing and evolving, only further fueling his passion for grooming!

"Keep your daily concurrency of dogs at a limit you’re comfortable with! Find a style of grooming that works for you around safety and keep practicing/watching others senior groomers around you! Do not get discouraged."
