Threading

Grow & Shape your brows NATURALLY !

We placed our clients on what we call our ‘Growth Plan’, where they apply the product 3 – 4 times a week, and come in monthly for eyebrow maintenance which includes threading, tinting, and touchup (touch up is to thread any areas not in the growth zone, and finish up the look with brow filler and brow gel – ALL UPSELL SERVICES PER THREADING CLIENT).  The eyebrow results were fantastic.   If you would like to try out our products you can find them on Amazon. This assures your clients will return for repeat services with you when you place them on a plan. Many brow and lash serums are in the hundreds of dollars, and clients tend to shy away from these purchases, plus they contain harmful chemicals that shouldn’t be placed anywhere near the eyes however, our brow serum is all natural, organic and is only $18.95, and arrives in 2 days with Prime.

Well, depending on where you live threading is generally not taught in esthetics or cosmetology schools and I’m actually kinda glad it isn’t! Threading, is a specific skill that must be mastered. Unlike waxing, threading takes dexterity, coordination, proficiency, and ability to build the craft, especially when it comes to shaping eyebrows. Eyebrows have become the focus of beauty. It is the most important feature on a humans face. Without it, it leaves us without expression and emotionless. At the Portland School of Threading, we give threading a whole new meaning. Just because you are an esthetician who waxes brows, it doesn’t mean that you can pick up a piece of thread and start threading. They are two completely different entities. Wax lays flat on the surface, and is ripped off the skin. Threading allows you to refine the dips and curves of a 3-dimensional face,  either by precisely shaping a brow, or preparing a smooth, clean finish to lay down primer and foundation. Threading is so much more than ripping hair off someone’s face. It’s giving confidence to what was once an insecure teen. It’s allowing a man, to still feel and look like a man after he gets his brows done (if that’s the look he’s going for). Its putting more bounce into person’s step, because we all could use a good bounce. When other people says, “who cares?”, PST says, “we care.” Even after doing brows for over 40 years, we still take more than 20 minutes per client in our chair, because thats how we do. It’s those extra little touches that we teach you, is what will ensure your client that you have given them beautifully lined, textured, colored, arched, and balanced brows.  Portland School of Threading, Portland, Oregon

Every human face is unique and possesses an inherent beauty of its own. A pretty face isn’t hard to remember. It’s easier to recall faces and not names mainly because we take mental photographs of an image and file it away in our temporal lobes without needing to memorize a name to go along with it. Believe it or not, we can mostly recognize a person’s face through main characteristics in which a person may possess. One of those major facial features are the eyebrows. Javid Sadro, Izzat Jarudi, and Pawan Sinhao of the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, conducted a study called “The Role of Eyebrows in Face Recognition”. In their study, they discovered that it was actually harder to recognize a face when the eyebrows are removed from a picture, than when the eyes are removed. Thus showing the importance of this often times overlooked and ignored feature of a human face.

Out of all the primates, we humans have the less amount of hair on our faces (technically speaking, although many may disagree!), and that is probably why there is so much focus and attention drawn to the eyebrows. What little hair we do wear on our faces compared to our fellow primates, we really should try to keep them tamed and well-groomed.

Not only do brows frame the face and add attractiveness, but they also pack a plethora of emotional expression into them. Eyebrows are the most expressive part of the human face. It can express anger, joy, fear, and surprise from a person who may be feeling it. Eyebrows also play an important role when we communicate with someone in a non-verbal way. When we scrunch them together, we look somewhat confused or angry. If we lift only one of them, it can be considered flirtatious or coy. An eyebrow flash is when we lift both of the brows up in a quick second, which can either mean that you acknowledge someone familiar, or that you accept and welcome a pretty face and are sneaking in a flirty, yet subtle invitation.

Communication in itself isn’t always an easy task especially between both sexes of the human species. So whether you’re doing it verbally or non-verbally, why add more confusion to the mix by sending mixed signals through your eyebrows? Bushy scraggly brows can give off the impression that your frustrated, especially when the sun is out. And for women who have the golden arches for brows, always, always, always look surprised, no matter what the situation. Eyes are the first point of contact and the first attempt at communication. In most countries it is also the foundation of respect.

Throughout history we have seen women tweeze, pluck, wax, and draw in their brows, and I’m sure most men never understood why. So let me put it in another perspective: One of the most important features of a house are the windows. The frames of a window are more important than the glass itself, because it insulates the house and it dictates an overall look and style. May it be Victorian, Mission, Spanish, or Pueblo, the design of the window frame outlines the style of house. So, if the eyes are supposedly the windows to our soul, then we had better make sure that these frames are appropriately dressed too!

What are the 5 things that every man must know about eyebrow threading?

1. Threading is quick, painless, and efficient. It does the job so much quicker than plucking out one hair at a time. It happens so quick that it is essentially pain-free, and the way the thread works, it can remove rows of hair at a time, making it precise and adequate.
2. Threading is becoming more and more popular and will soon be in every barbershop and salon across the nation. Men threaders will be eagerly sought, and highly compensated.
3. Grooming your eyebrows doesn’t mean you’ll look like a woman. An experienced Threading specialist will know what to do for your man brows, and know how to make you look even manlier!
4. Threading isn’t just for women. Men look good when they are well groomed, and women love good looking men.
5. Threading isn’t only done by women. Men threaders are all over the globe. After a nice haircut, and a clean shave, threading is used to remove stray hairs around the face and forehead, between the brows, and below the eyelids. It finishes off then entire grooming process and gives men a clean and crisp appearance.

If you’re in town looking for a male threader, it might be a little hard to find at first. But you can be rest assured to get nice man brows done at the Brow Boutique Threading Bar in Tigard, by Artisan Threader, Tasneem Rahman. Or if you know any male barbers, who could use this tool in their tool belt, let them know that the Portland School of Threading is now forming classes, and they will soon be the most sought out barber in town!
