Farouk Systems, Inc. recently announced their support of the Professional Beauty Association's (PBA) Beacon program by becoming a Beacon Program Top Sponsor. As a sponsor, Farouk will help to support the industry's rising stars by welcoming students across the country to compete for national recognition. 

Beacon is run by the Professional Beauty Association and is designed to encourage and inspire beauty school students to prepare for successful careers. There are two elements to Beacon—a national competition open to all beauty industry students, and a live, education event in Las Vegas during PBA Beauty Week for top-scoring entrants. The 2018 Educational Event will be held in Las Vegas, July 28th-30th during PBA Beauty Week. 

Approximately 1,000 of the nation's most promising students enter the Beacon competition each year, advancing their education, preparing for their careers and gaining national recognition. During each program, 100 winners and 200 honorable mentions are chosen to attend the specialized education event.
