MARY KAY CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY

DALLAS (Sept. 13, 2013) /PRNewswire/ — Across the world millions of Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants, their customers, corporate employees and brand lovers will mark the golden anniversary and founding day of iconic beauty company Mary Kay.

This is far from the humble beginnings of the brand that started in a 500 square foot store front in Dallas, Texas, USA, with five beauty products displayed on a single metal shelf and nine Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants. The company was founded on Sept. 13, 1963, and was called Beauty by Mary Kay. Now, Mary Kay Inc. has more than 200 products that are sold in 37 countries around the world by 3 million Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants.

To celebrate in the United States, Mary Kay is holding the largest pink Cadillac rally and caravan in company history. More than 100 pink Cadillacs will blanket the Dallas Arts District in front of the AT&T Performing Arts Center before caravanning up the Dallas North Tollway via police escort to the Mary Kay global headquarters. Once there, the pink Cadillacs will spell out a commemorative message in tribute to the company’s golden anniversary.

Mary Kay celebrated its 50th anniversary with remarkable accomplishments including:

“Our 50th anniversary has been a record-setting year for our company,” said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc. “Women of all backgrounds and ages continue to turn to Mary Kay for the products they love and trust as well as the unparalleled opportunity.”
