HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Farouk Systems, which manufactures CHI brand hair care products, joined in an event with Dress for Success Houston to help clients of the 501(c)(3) corporation look and feel their best during job interviews.
The event launched on Wednesday with a discussion led by CHI Ambassadors and reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Miss USA Kára McCullough.
“As a hairdresser, I know firsthand how helping a woman look her best can be incredibly empowering,” said Farouk Shami, chairman and founder of Farouk Systems. “The goal of this event and our partnership with Dress for Success Houston is to encourage women to come out of this experience with a fresh new look and mindset as they continue to achieve their career goals. We’re thrilled that our brand ambassadors Miss Universe and Miss USA can also join us to further elevate the conversation to one of self-empowerment and positivity.”
DFSH clients had the opportunity to take part in individual sessions at CHI hair styling bars as an educational “how-to achieve the look.” Each woman left the event with CHI tools and personalized styling products to replicate the looks on their own when preparing for future interviews.
After the styling sessions, a Farouk Systems photographer provided professional headshots for all the clients to use for their LinkedIn profiles.
“While women may land a job after being suited at DFSH, the experience does not end there," said DFSH vice president Lauren Levicki Courville. "It’s about collecting the tools to not only land a job, but develop it into a career. Events like this one with Farouk Systems will provide just that to the women we serve. Building self-confidence, exposure to successful women, learning professional polish and presence through the tools that Farouk will provide will stay with these ladies for life.”
