Mary Kay Ash begins an annual tradition of recognizing women’s accomplishments in entrepreneurship while providing inspiration and business education for the coming year. She calls it Seminar. The company’s first Seminar is held in the Company warehouse.
In the 1960s, most American bathrooms were white. So pink was chosen for the Company’s packaging to give women beauty products they could keep conveniently on their bathroom counters.
After learning that many men were using their wives’ skincare products, Mary Kay becomes one of the first cosmetics companies to introduce a complete line of skincare products for men, which she calls “Mr. K.”
