Farouk Shami received Canadian Hairdresser's Lifetime Achievement Award for his 50th anniversary in hairdressing at Farouk Conference 2015.
An amazing night of talent in hairstyling, awards and special performance by Flo Rida wrapped the Farouk Systems Global Conference 2015 in Cancun, Mexico.
More than 3,000 hairstylists and distributors from around the world, including a big group from Canada, VIPs and members of the media attended the event in Cancun, Mexico - from September 18-22. A Red Carpet gathering, a beach party and concert by Flo Rida and Natalie La Rose kicked off the celebration of hair and beauty.
Top of the line education began Saturday morning with multiple classes for hairstylists and distributors, after a general session where Founder Farouk Shami and CEO Basim Shami welcomed the attendees and introduced new upcoming launches: CHI Escape cordless curling iron, CHI Color Shine Shades, BioSilk Rock Hard, CHI Tea Tree Oil and Dura CHI Marcel iron. Basim Shami also announced that actress and pop icon Zendaya is the new brand ambassador for CHI.
The conference was a success, hairstylists enjoyed the sun in Cancun, but most importantly learned from Farouk master hairstylists who presented and shared their knowledge in the multiple classes, seminaries and on stage.
Canadian Hairdresser was represented by Edna Amador, one of our editors, who presented the award to Mr. Shami on behalf of our publisher Joan Harrison and the rest of the Canhair family.

Hip Hop artist Flo Rida opened the event with a beach concert and also headlining the awards gala.
