ABOUT SEPHORA CANADA
Sephora is a visionary beauty-retail concept founded in France in 1970 and acquired from Dominique Mandonnaud (founder of Shop Huit) by Paris-based LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world’s leading luxury products group, in 1997.
Sephora is a name that is synonymous with beauty. Zipporah is a biblical name; she was the wife of Moses and the daughter of a nomadic chief. She was renowned for her exceptional beauty. Sephos is the Greek term attributed to beauty and vanity. The combination of the two words became Sephora.
Sephora’s unique, open-sell environment features over 140 classic and emerging brands across a broad range of product categories including skincare, color, fragrance, nail care, smile care, bath & body and haircare, in addition to Sephora’s own private collection.
To build the most knowledgeable and professional team of product consultants in the beauty industry, Sephora developed “Science of Sephora.” This program ensures that our team is skilled to identify skin types, have knowledge of skin physiology, the history of makeup, application techniques, the science of creating fragrances, and most importantly, how to interact with Sephora’s diverse clientele. To further enhance the education program, Sephora opened the doors to an expanded training facility – Sephora University – in San Francisco in October 2007.
Sephora’s highly trained beauty experts are available to assist clients wherever they shop – in stores, online, or via 1-877-SEPHORA.
