I agree....I have been learning for about a year now and doing my own dogs for about 6-7 months, and I have made mistakes, but like you said, the only one I can get upset at is me and its just hair, if they are not showing, don't fret, it will grow back, faster then you think lol! I would go for it, learn to groom yourself. Also, ya I would not only never go back to "her" but I would also have never paid her.....think about it, if you went to the salon and they had butchered YOUR hair, and you were not happy, would you pay them???? Would you go back to the same stylist???? NO! Grooming is a little hard to learn but once you get started....it is satisfying and fun!you know what. Just do it. Yes I made many mistakes but I think I can get them pretty good now. I first of all could not afford both of them at over a hundred bucks each since I refuse to get a shave down and second enjoy thinking I did it myself.
I deffinatly would not go back to that bit**
