Hairdressers are traditionally all about people. We work closely with each of our clients and canít help but get to know each one personally. We know their hopes and fears and we share in almost every life event Ė weddings, births, proms, deaths, and divorces, We are there in all of the ups and downs of life. Hairdressers love people.
This is why I am very happy to report on a company in the hair business that is giving back to the people we serve and to the country. The company is Farouk Systems, producer of hair tools, hair care products, hair color, and nail color.
Farouk Systems Helps the Economy
Farouk Systems founder, Palestinian-born hairdresser Farouk Shami built a billion dollar business around his popular line of hair irons including the famous Chi Iron, invented in the late 1990ís. Striking a blow against outsourcing, Farouk Systems has recently brought their manufacturing facilities back from China to Houston, Texas. This brings 1,277 jobs back to the United States.
As a hairdresser who sees the struggles of the people I care about as they deal with shortened working hours and unemployment, Iím happy that the money I spend on products will go to help the US economy.
Farouk Systems Helps in Fort Hood Tragedy
When Farouk founder, Farouk Shami was notified of the shooting at Fort Hood that left 13 people dead and 30 wounded, he put a plan in motion to respond to the tragedy.

Many of Farouk employees left their jobs assembling hair tools to work to assemble care packages.
