Houston, TX – On October 26 & 27th 2018, Farouk Systems, Inc. hosted the Hurricane Relief Palooza held at the Colony Trade Center/Church of God New Bern.  This 2-day relief program helped the victims of Hurricane Florence by distributing over $350,000 worth of CHI and BioSilk hair care plus styling tools.  On hand were Carrie on NC, volunteers and staff from Farouk Systems including Sage Graverson (District Manager), Bradley Tuggle (Artist), Amy Rodriguez (Educator), William Coley (Educator), Elizabeth Kaufmann (Educator) and Ryan Kaskey (Director). They traveled from all over to help both residents and salons in the area. An additional recipient was The Coastal Woman’s Shelter who lost everything amidst the hurricane’s devastation.

The event along with The Carrie on NC, Inc. served a total of 697 families and 1,399 people during the Hurricane Relief Palooza. In addition, the New Life Church put together activities for children as well as 100 relief supply buckets and the ongoing support of materials needed along the way.

Farouk Systems Director of Sales, Ryan Kaskey, as well as Global Artist, Bradley Tuggle, helped to coordinate the event. According to Ryan, “The opportunity to speak with those whose worlds have been destroyed by Hurricane Florence, losing everything and now facing their homes in ruins, to the tears shed in gratitude is something I will never forget.” He continues, “We also helped fellow hair stylists who lost their livelihood to now having a chance to get back on their feet and giving them a new start was heartwarming.  I would thank Brittaney C. Ratzlaff of Carrie On NC, Inc., Two Rives Church & New Life Church, New Bern for teaming up with Farouk Systems. You were all amazing to work side by side with the last couple of days!”

If you or someone you know was afflicted by Hurricane Florence in the South Carolina area, the relief effort will continue this weekend in Mullins and Longs!

On Sunday, September 9th, the Armstrong McCall World’s Fair of Cosmetic Arts & Sciences kicked off at the Austin Convention Center located in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas. Backstage was bustling with wall-to-wall cut, color and styling action with CHI, BioSilk and Esquire Grooming products.

Farouk Systems Hosts Creative Artistic Team Training for the 2018 Fall Trend Release

Farouk Systems Hosts Creative Artistic Team Training for the 2018 Fall Trend Release

This past week Farouk Systems, Inc. hosted a Creative Artistic Team (CAT) Training for over 100 International Brand Ambassadors from all four (4) continents at their home base in Houston, TX. The 2-day training showcased the latest salon color and cutting trends from around the world. Guests also enjoyed a VIP tour of the company’s manufacturing, laboratories, and production lines so they could see firsthand how hair color and hair care is made – from the mixing stages in the lab to final packaging on the production line.

During the CAT Training, each International Brand Ambassador participated in hands-on classes that featured the new CHI Chromashine with Chroma Intense Dye Technology, which provides shiny, longer lasting color results. Stylists became mixologists and learned how to create formulations using the 9-shade system with primary and secondary colors to create literally any color they could imagine.

Lead Global Artists Anna Cantu and Cynthia Diersen’s Trend Class included painting, smudging, and blending techniques that created soft, seamless color. Creative Director Patrick Kalle and Canadian Hairdresser of the Year, Rocky Vitelli, shared the new Stardust Trend from Holland (coming soon!) that featured bold, bright color tones with a mix of texture.

According to Dr. Farouk Shami, “Education has been the foundation of Farouk Systems, Inc. For over 30 years, we have devoted all our efforts to not only train our educators but to help stylists around the world. We offer them the finest products from hair color that is ammonia free to haircare products and tools all created with Advanced American Technology.”

The Lightweight CHI Nano Hair Dryer: Styling & Power With Less than One Pound

July is the time when your client is looking for that stunning summer blowout, but sometimes creating those fabulous looks can literally be a painful process!

One possible reason? The average hair dryer weighs in at two pounds. Over time that can amount to significant damage for your wrists, elbows, neck and back.

The CHI Nano Hair Dryer is able to reduce some of the ailments that come with being a professional stylist with its amazing light weight structure (less than a pound!) yet still delivers gorgeous styling precision with its powerful 1875 W DC Motor and a dual vent air-intake system.

Watch Farouk Systems Global Artist Rocky Vitelli create some of the season’s must-have styles with ease using his lightweight CHI Nano Hair Dryer.
