Farouk Honors The Life & Legacy Of John McCall

Dr. Farouk Shami and Farouk Systems, Inc. announce the passing of Executive Team Member John McCall. John and Farouk shared a deep friendship and partnership for over 40 years—together, they worked to grow the company’s brands CHI, BioSilk and SunGlitz while putting hairdressers, the environment and education at the forefront.

 

John began his career in the beauty industry as a child in his mother’s hair salon and went on to own and operate Armstrong McCall Beauty Supply, one of the largest professional distributorships in the United States. John’s personal insight into what hairdressers and salons need garnered him his reputation for knowing which brands would be successful in salons. He will be remembered as an industry leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist, mentor and dear friend. 

 

“I would like the beauty industry to know how much John McCall meant to everyone and what he contributed to our beloved beauty industry,” shared Dr. Farouk Shami. “His efforts to improve and better salons and hairdressers were tireless. His legacy will continue through his loving family, countless friends and the industry leaders he mentored.”

 

“We are committed to keeping his memory alive,” he added. “He was not just a friend and business partner, and he was my best friend and a true brother to me. We extend our condolences, prayers and blessings to his family, friends and business partners and all who loved John. He will be greatly missed.”

 

Our deepest condolences are with the Farouk Systems, Inc. team, John’s loved ones and the industry he touched so dearly.
