Farouk Systems CEO To Be Honored as Spirit of Life Honoree

The Spirit of Life Award is presented to individuals whose professional and humanitarian accomplishments are worthy of celebration.

Chairman and Founder of Farouk Systems, Inc., Dr. Farouk Shami, has dedicated his life to giving back. And on July 10, he will be honored as the Spirit of Life Honoree at the fundraising gala, City of Hope’s Spirit of Life Celebration, at Zouk Nightclub at Resorts World Las Vegas in Nevada.
 
The Spirit of Life Award is presented to individuals whose professional and humanitarian accomplishments are worthy of celebration. It is the highest honor given by City of Hope, a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center for diabetes, cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
 
“The City of Hope is an organization that does amazing work,” said Dr. Shami. “I am grateful for this honor, and I am so proud that Farouk Systems, Inc. can join the organization in transforming the lives of patients and contributing to the global fight against devastating illnesses.”
 
Dr. Shami owns 61 total patents with 22 pending, creating beauty discoveries like the first ammonia-free hair color, ceramic flat iron and first-to-market digital color lab, the LG CHI Color Master Factory. He was the first to utilize NASA technology in the development of professional styling tools and haircare. He is also the first hairdresser to receive a Doctorate of Beauty – an honorary Ph.D. of Arts by SeoKyeong University in Korea.
 
Dr. Farouk Shami and Farouk Systems, Inc. have donated millions of dollars and resources to support various philanthropic causes, including Covid-19 relief to health care professionals, first responders, homeless shelters and food banks. He was also a rapid responder when events and disasters – such as the 9/11 attacks, hurricanes, tornadoes and floods – struck nationally.
 
His partnership with Lone Star College at the CHI School of Cosmetology in Houston, TX, helps impact the development of future hairstylists and expand career opportunities for graduates.
 
“Giving back is the art of transforming lives and creating a ripple effect of positive change in our world,” said Dr. Shami. “It’s a powerful force that ignites hope, uplifts communities and shapes a brighter furture for generations to come.”
