Threading is not taught in Esthetics or Cosmetology School

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
