The Farouk Systems Education Summit, “Setting the Stage for Success” was held August 27-30, 2010 in Cancun, Mexico, with more than 1,000 participants from all corners of the globe who arrived to celebrate their passion for knowledge, educating others and furthering their career.
Featured guest stars included members of the Farouk Global Artistic Board,
Rocky Vitelli, Leonel Rodriguez and Joe Pena, who opened the Summit with an inspiring show featuring styles created with the Farouk Royal Treatment line of products and tools. Team Europe—Patrick Kalle, Richard Jordan and Maurice den Exter—presented the Contradictions 2 collection, while George Cooper and Brian Perry showcased styles created with CHI Deep Brilliance.
As there is no substitute for hands-on training, smaller groups were organized to cover such topics as extreme cutting, runway styling, hair coloring, and the Contradiction 2 collection.
“This has been the largest Education Summit to date and it was a huge success,” said Lisa Marie, Farouk Systems Show Director. “Next year we plan to be even bigger and stronger with more salon owners, stylists and schools that believe in our mission statement of Environment, Education and Ethics.”
The event ended with the first annual Farouk Systems Artist Choice Awards to honor individuals who give their all and more. This is a truly exceptional honor as the winners were selected by their peers. Congratulations to:
