John McCall began his career in the beauty industry by owning and operating one of the largest and most successful professional distributorships in the United States. His keen insight into what hairdressers and salons needed, garnered him the reputation for knowing which brands could make the difference in their earning potential. It was through this that stylists and salons sought out Armstrong McCall for all their needs, trusting that each product they purchased would deliver the results they needed. John’s trusted intuition and in-depth knowledge of the industry helped to build many top brands through his distribution channels as well as providing customers with some of the finest education both at his distributor shows and through in-salon trainings. It was during one of his distributors shows over 30 years ago that he was introduced to a newly formed haircare company called Farouk Systems, Inc. It was here that John McCall met Dr. Farouk Shami. Together, these two innovative geniuses became not only best friends but business partners that have worked tirelessly to grow the company’s top brands such as SunGlitz, BioSilk and CHI. Today, Farouk Systems, Inc. is proud to have him as a partner. Together, Farouk and John continue to grow and create brands, always putting the hairdresser, the environment and education at the forefront.
