CHI Hosts 4th Bi-Annual Education Symposium

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

To kick off the event, each instructor was invited to attend the official welcome party held at Bella Vetro. That evening, Circus du CHI gave attendees a vintage circus theme that included inspirational art work supplied by the Mosque Art Gallery. The entire Farouk Systems Team dressed in circus style costumes with an official Ring Master portrayed by 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 complemented the art work. CHI Elite International Artist Efrain Liave also created a styling show on Friday and conducted a hands-on updo styling class that afternoon that focused on the Royal Treatment line.

Over the next three days, attendees participated in educational classes including,V A 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.
