Farouk Systems Mourns the Loss of John McCall, a Dear Friend and Business Partner

Farouk Systems Mourns the Loss of John McCall, a Dear Friend and Business Partner

John-McCall

Houston, TX – Dr. Farouk Shami and Farouk Systems, Inc. are saddened to announce the passing of John McCall. John and Farouk shared a deep friendship and highly respected business partnership for over 40 years. Together, these two innovative businessmen worked tirelessly to grow the company’s brands SunGlitz, BioSilk, and CHI while always putting the hairdresser, the environment, and education at the forefront.

John McCall will be remembered as a highly renowned industry leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist, mentor, and friend. He began his career in the beauty industry as a child in his mother’s hair salon and then went on to own and operate Armstrong McCall, one of the largest and most successful professional distributorships in the United States. John’s keen insight into what hairdressers and salons needed garnered him the reputation for knowing which brands would be successful in salons. In addition, he offered the finest education at his distributor shows and through in-salon training that helped hairdressers grow their businesses and careers.

Dr. Farouk Shami says, “I would like the beauty industry to know how much John McCall meant to everyone and what he contributed to our beloved beauty industry. His efforts to improve and better salons and hairdressers were tireless. His legacy will continue through his loving family, countless friends, and the industry leaders he mentored. We are committed to keeping his memory alive. He was not just a friend and business partner, and he was my best friend and a true brother to me. We extend our condolences, prayers and blessings to his family, friends and business partners and all who loved John.  He will be greatly missed.”

Dr. Farouk Shami Receives the 2021 Beauty Heroes of the Pandemic Award

America’s Beauty Show and Cosmetologists Chicago acknowledged Dr. Shami and other beauty industry leaders for their perseverance during the pandemic

Houston, TX – During America’s Beauty Show, Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc. (FSI), was presented the Beauty’s Heroes of the Pandemic Award. This honor acknowledged beauty industry professionals for efforts and leadership during the worldwide pandemic.

When the United States grappled with COVID-19, Dr. Shami developed and supplied Americans with products to protect themselves against the virus. This resulted in a new collection called Health + Care, which began with natual aloe-based CHI® and BioSilk® hand sanitizers and then expanded to produce a full line of antibacterial products with soothing, moisturizing natural aloe vera for hands, body, and hair.

FSI uses its own organically grown aloe vera in many of its formulations. The company’s CHI® Natural Gardens received an organic certification from the Texas Department of Agriculture for aloe vera in 2020.

Once the hand sanitizer was developed and FDA approved, the haircare giant donated millions of dollars-worth of hand sanitizer to the City of Houston and surrounding cities in Texas. FSI’s mission to give back, however, did not stop there. The company donated CHI® and BioSilk® antibacterial haircare and skincare to hospitals, medical staff and first responders who were in search of products that sanitized but were gentle on hair and skin. Donations, which toppled $17.5 million, were also made to shelters, nursing homes, places of worship, schools, food banks, community programs, and youth organizations across the nation.

As the pandemic continued to surge, FSI further expanded its development of products to include the CHI® Life UV Light Lamp, CHI® Life Handheld UV Light Wand, and the Automatic Dispenser for Hand Sanitizer and Soap.

“It was a great honor to be recognized by my fellow hairdressers during such a difficult time of hardship and uncertainty,” said Dr. Farouk Shami. “Farouk Systems continues to serve the nation and provide professional hairdressers with products and tools to help combat this virus.”

LG & CHI Create First-Ever Hair Color Machine:  The LG CHI Color Master Factory

LG & CHI Create First-Ever Hair Color Machine: The LG CHI Color Master Factory

Houston, TX – Merging their technologies and knowledge together, CHI® color genius, Dr. Farouk Shami, and LG H&H’s team of top engineers have created the world’s first-ever color machine called The LG CHI Color Master Factory (patent pending). It is a digitally controlled color customization system that has 30,000 recommended formulations with the possibility to create unlimited color formulations with exact precision to make stylists’ artistry come to life. The LG CHI Color Master Factory is also environmentally conscious, cutting waste reduction by 30 percent and tracking colors dispensed for inventory purposes. It has built in sensors and a scale to measure for precise formulating.

The LG CHI Color Master Factory takes the guesswork out of hair color by offering limitless formulations for permanent, semi-permanent, and demi-permanent color formulations with ease to lift and tone up to three levels. It offers customized formulations, gray coverage, and tint back options with 108 shades + 8 additives selected from the color chart with color formulations that are ammonia and PPD free. The LG CHI Color Master Factory saves time by dispensing color formulations in under 2 minutes. The simulation mode allows stylists to take a picture of their clients to try on the color first with before and after images. To view the LG CHI Color Master Factory, visit: https://colormaster.chi.com.

The LG CHI Color Master Factory houses 12 recyclable cylinders that replace the countless color bottles, tubes and boxes normally needed to customize that many colors.

To begin formulating, the LG CHI Color Master Factory has two options – it can be manually programed using the touchscreen display or managed directly from a tablet or even a phone. For a tablet or phone, stylists can download the COLORMASTER application from the Google Play app store and then send their formulations directly to The LG CHI Color Master Factory. Since the color formulations are organized by stylist name and client name, there is no confusion on whose formulation is in queue. You can also see the color formulations being mixed – nothing hidden. When finished, a light will blink to let you know it is complete. An automated voice response and the touchscreen display will let you know when to remove the bowl. The LG CHI Color Master Factory also offers a client management system that will store clients’ formulas and photos for their next appointment.

The LG CHI Color Master Factory is housed in a stainless-steel cabinet 18″ X 22″ X 22″ that weighs under 100lbs. for space saving and convenience. As a bonus, no noise is emitted from the machine to disrupt the salon environment.

According to Dr. Farouk Shami, “Farouk Systems is proud to continue our mission of Advanced American Technology for stylists to bring the artistry of hair color to life. We are a company that has always based its success on innovation. Today, we bring you the LG CHI Color Master Factory that took over four years to develop. It was devised with passion and a desire to manufacture something that would revolutionize our industry.”

Most recently, the LG CHI Color Master Factory was introduced to thousands of professional hairstylists at the 2021 Behind the Chair, held in Austin, TX from August 21st-24th and the America’s Beauty Show, held in Rosemont, IL September 11-13th.
