Farouk Shami is a Palestinian-American businessman and founder of the hair-care and spa products company, Farouk Systems located in Texas. He was born in Beit Ur al-Tahta, a village near Ramallah, Palestine... Shami has worked for decades in the field of hair-care product development, and attended cosmetology school in Arkansas. He invented the first ammonia- free hair color, after developing an allergy to the chemical that initially led doctors to encourage him to leave his profession.

I began Farouk Systems on a mission and a dream. My mission and dream was to provide my fellow hair artists with a safer workplace environment free of harsh chemicals, advanced knowledge through education and new professional-only systems that could not be duplicated at home. This is why Farouk Systems' mission statement has always been and still is: Environment, Education and Ethics.

Adherence to such standards should never be traded in favor of financial or other business objectives. High ethical standards are necessary to maintain competitive advantage, the pride and confidence of our employees, and the ability to provide quality products to our clients.
In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is gentler on the skin...
Threading allows for a more defined and precise shape and can create better definition for eyebrows. It is also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face..., upper lip, chin, sideburns and cheeks.
