It is all in the BROWS

 FACE FRAMES:  Eyebrows are not only fashion statements that are dictated by skinny or full brows, rounded or blocky...our brows are the frames for true expression. The twitch of a brow can give you a hint of what is going on inside that head. Actresses can use this tool to give the most subtle to dramatic statements.

"You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow"  -Jack Black

Shaping and grooming these assets isn't as easy as it looks. Most women that have well maintained brows visit their esthetician every 2-4 weeks. Waxing, tweezing, trimming, tinting and filling in with pencils or powder to achieve the best look...whether you want defined brows or the softest frames. Even the guys are visiting the brow bars and spas to complete their grooming. It is definitley on the list of maintenance for a well groomed man.

Here are some of our favorite famous brows:

Audrey Hepburn                                             English model-actor Cara Delevingne

       Rita Hayworth                              Lucy Liu


Eyebrow shapes are as trendy as pant legs, so it looks like Estheticians will always be busy taking care of these face frames.

Travis Henry, @bigTtheBarber, Class of 2011

I entered Beauty School not sure what to expect and with no prior cutting/barbering experience. I did research on a few local Beauty Schools and went with what felt right for my family and the locations that worked for me. The campuses were beautiful, the staff was awesome, and there was a variety of different students. Beauty school is what you make of it. It's the school's responsibility to teach you the rules, help you achieve greatness, and give you the tools you need to succeed in this profession. Northwest College did that for me. This business is 75% Passion and 25% skills, NW College can get you those skills if your willing to do your part. I graduated in March of 2011; I'm now a Certified Educator for Eufora International, Owner of Chop Shop Hair Studio, Co-Owner of  Doo or Dye Salon, President of the North West Barbers Alliance, and Business Partners with Shave Envy. You can achieve anything you want with the right training, support, and a passion.” - Travis Henry, Class of 2011

Jessica Koch, Class of 2014

I was very scared going back to school after nearly 20 years, but attending NW College in Tualatin made it an easy transition. I had no idea what to expect from beauty school or if I was making the right career move, but in no time at all I knew NW College was the right decision for me. I had amazing instructors that were encouraging and pushed me to trust in myself and my creative abilities. I graduated on November 22, 2014 and because of the great academics of NW College passed my state boards and became licensed on November 26, 2014. I had interviewed with several salons leading up to my graduation and started working immediately as an independent contractor on December 2, 2014.. Attending NW College was the best decision of my life, I’ve never been happier going to work each day. I LOVE my career choice as a licensed Cosmetologist.” - Jessica Koch, Class of 2014
