Teri DiMarino to Lead Brusher Bather Certificate Program During Groom Expo West in February 2024

Veteran groomer Teri DiMarino is leading the Brusher Bather Certificate Program seminar during Groom Expo West, which takes place Feb. 15 through Feb. 18, 2024 in Pasadena, CA.

DiMarino has owned and operated successful salons and mobiles in Florida and California. A winning grooming contest competitor, she was a member of three GroomTeam USA Gold Medal teams. DiMarino is also a multiple Barkleigh Honors and Cardinal Crystal Award winner. She was a regular columnist for Groomer to Groomer Magazine as well as a popular speaker and judge at seminars and trade shows across the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

The Brusher Bather Certificate Program, which runs from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15 during the convention, is described as:

“Your ability to do your job and do it right, separates you from being ‘just a bather’ to a position that contributes to the finished product in the salon. Teri believes that a good bath, brush and dry is 50 percent of a great groom. The bathing room is where most stylists started. Before future groomers begin to think of clipping coat, they must first know what to expect from the hair and how to treat it to obtain desired results. Surprisingly, many great B/Bs remain in the bathing room, preferring the security of knowing there will always be a need for their expert services. Bathers-in-training, ‘groomer wannabes,’ seasoned groomer techs and salon owners will benefit from this day-long program with tips on equipment and products to make the job easier. From getting the dog ready for the tub, to finding the right shampoo through proper bathing and blow-drying techniques, Teri will cover the B/B fundamentals. Safety issues and handling will be stressed.”
