The history of Sephora
The very first Sephora opened in 1970 in Paris, France, and it was originally a perfume shop. The idea was a partner project with Paris's Nouvelles Galeries and the UK drugstore Boots. One thing it did very differently from a lot of other retailers at the time was that they encouraged customers to try products out before purchasing.
The brand grew, and opened its huge flagship store on the Champs Elysees in 1997. The same year, they also started offering makeup and beauty products. Their first U.S. store opened in 1998 in New York City.
Today, there are Sephora locations all over the world. In North America alone there are 360 Sephora stores.
Did you know where the name Sephora comes from?
Sephora makeup is one of the world’s most famous beauty brands. But it’s not just a cosmetic brand – it’s also a female name, which is also pretty famous is some parts of the world.
Sephora is slightly softer version of the Bibilical name Tzipora, who was Moses’s wife. It’s a Hebrew name meaning "female bird."
In the United States from 1880 – 2014, 557 children were registered as having the name Sephora, so it’s not exactly a common name. In 1974, the name had a jump in popularity and was officially given to more than five children (there were actually eight).
But the name broke its popularity record in 2014, when around 59 baby girls were named Sephora.
