Houston Symposium – The Future & the Past


Market Information at its Best!

Wow!  What a wonderful time we had at the annual CHI Symposium in Houston!

We recently had the great opportunity to join other cosmetology instructors from all over the U.S. for a three day, fun filled, intense training session at CHI USA in Houston, Texas.

We started our day at Lone Star College, where we enjoyed guest speakers from all over the world.  Speakers from Modern Salon, Esquire Magazine, Global Artistic Team, Global Platform artists, Research and Development, Social Media, Founders of Farouk Systems as well as other companies who are now partnering with CHI for great things to come in the upcoming year.

So, You may ask, What is New for 2017?

A scientifically formulated color maintenance system, Rose Hip Oil naturally moisturizes hair while keeping the cuticle closed and locking in hair color.

Yes, the hot new products for 2017 are the Rose Hip Color Nurture System and the New Men's Line by Esquire.  But the highlight of the symposium was the wonderful instructors.  Taking time out of their busy lives to share their talent and insights about the Beauty Industry. Rocky was wonderful with his photo session how to's and his up styles and styling classes.  We really had a blast in his classes!  Lisa Marie shared a lot of information on platform artist work and how fabulous Farouk Systems are to work with.  Miss Dixie is always an inspiration on helping connect the schools, students and salons together with advanced education and fun activities.  Special speakers advised us about social media, photo shoots, technology in the salon and school and how to advance schools and the artists to the next level.  Lots of new and fun things coming your way from CHI in 2017!

We enjoyed participating in the time capsule ceremony.  What fun!  To see all of the information from today's styles, chemicals, and techniques, pictures and much more, placed in that time capsule and buried, we will see what our future generation thinks about us....so curious to see what the future holds in the way of the Beauty Industry, this is an exciting time.
