Farouk Systems, Inc. hosted its 4th Bi-Annual CHI Education Symposium for cosmetology instructors across the US. Over 80 instructors from CHI Partner Schools traveled to Houston for this three-day educational event.

Each instructor attended the official welcome party held at Bella Vetro, crossing the official red carpet. The evening’s festivities titled, Circus du CHI, gave attendees a vintage styled circus theme that included inspirational art work supplied by the Mosaic Art Gallery. The food served, true to the theme, included cotton candy and hot dogs.

The entire Farouk Systems Team dressed in circus style costumes with the official Ring Master, Dixie Russell, CHI Schools Director, who helped orchestrate the experience. As an added highlight, CHI Students were mentored by CHI Elite International Artist Andrew Guerra. He helped the students with finished models in true carnival fashions and hairstyles that complimented the art work. Efrain Liave, CHI Elite International Artist also created a styling show on Friday as well as conducting a hands-on  updo styling class that afternoon that focused on the Royal Treatment line.

The next three-days consisted of educational classes where instructors took courses such as: VA VA Violets with CHI Chromashine by CHI Elite International Artist Andrew Guerra, The Tailored Man by Esquire Barber Anna Perkins, a Milady Class by Patti Wannabaker and Creating a Higher Income by Hollie Lillie and Assistant, Dixie Russell. The symposium also included a tour of Farouk Systems and a special welcome by Dr. Farouk Shami and Lisa Marie Garcia. Before the end of the Symposium, Dixie Russell and Lisa Marie Garcia announced the CHI Partner School of the Year - the Houston Training School.

"Houston Training Schools cosmetology instructors have returned from the CHI symposium with more motivation than ever before. The Milady classes have instantly improved our theory hour, and business building has impacted our clinic floor sales. Showing our students pictures of the instructors working on the manikin doing men's cuts and fashion colors with a smile have proved that learning never stops and we as educators are always willing to grow and step outside of the box. It was a truly inspiring weekend that has also allowed our team of instructors to get on a new level - TOGETHER.  Everyone I on the same page and are more goal orientated than ever. Thank you to the CHI Schools Department, and the whole Farouk Systems family for all you do for education. " Kimberly Poblano, Houston Training Schools - Main campus

According to Russell, “I am so proud of our team this year. Everyone had so much passion for the students and the instructors.”

What the attendees had to say:

“I am so excited to work with your company in many ways, but to begin with I look forward to working with and trying all your lines so that I can become more familiar with them. I know for a fact my view of the CHI company has forever changed after this event. Thank you again, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.”  - A. Michelle Saucedo, Pebble Hills HS Cosmetology Instructor

“I wanted to take a minute to thank you for inviting us to the Educational Symposium again this year. Your enthusiasm for the industry is infectious! And, your facilities are gorgeous and very welcoming. I look forward to our next adventure together. You guys did an amazing job. Way to go, team!” - Gina Padgett, Salon and Spa Technology Director Hill College
