Alyssa joins us from West River Maryland where she worked for several years at a small yet exclusive grooming salon. At this particular salon, Alyssa was able to focus on hand scissoring, building a technique that can be hard to find in fast paced grooming salons these days. She specializes in the tedious fully hand scissored haircuts typically desired on longer, plush coats including breeds such as doodles, bichons, and poodles. Alyssa has also had formal classroom training in many different breed specific patterns, achieving so many service-learning hours in each breed pattern.
