These were really useful experiences and it gave her the knowledge to go on winning many prizes in grooming competitions in the hand stripping class and scissoring class in Moscow, Kiev and St. Petersburg. Also, she won vice best in show in with a Gordon setter in Kiev. For Olga, it’s important to work with the fastest technique and the best material and in the least amount of time possible.Then, thanks to Kitty Dekeersgieter, came the idea to start styling dogs with only clippers, NO SCISSORS INVOLVED. At first this seemed impossible but 1 year later Olga has managed to take on all kinds of breeds. The live streaming of showing this technique has made her more well known and this even worldwide. The styling with clippers makes finishing of long coats very neat and crisp but natural and this neat finish also stays in shape for a longer period of time.

Olga is very passionate about finding new ways to do perfect styling and winning time. One of her specialties is styling free hand with the clippers.
