Happy Women History Month Babez! Today's the first installment of a new series that I’m doing all month long called JUST WOMEN: where I talk about women-owned small businesses who are killing it in their industry. In this first episode, I’ll be sharing my reason for why I love fashion and beauty, and how I got started as a solopreneur, mompreneur, & homepreneur.
When you first look at women's fashion history, it can be hard to see the evolution of the female wardrobe.
But if you look closer—really closely—you'll notice some subtle differences in those outfits: a bit more spandex in the miniskirt from the '80s than in the one from the '60s, for example, or a different cut to the collar on that babydoll dress. We also saw how history started to repeat itself during the 90's decade.
I share with you a tiny sampling of the beauty innovations that were created by women:
- Coco Chanel, who pioneered the creation of "beauty products" as we know them today.
- Estee Lauder, whose marketing genius helped her empire become one of the most recognized names in beauty.
- Madam C.J. Walker and Annie Malone, who became multi-millionaires selling hair products to African American women at a time when being black and female meant almost certain poverty and oppression.
- Florence Mills patented a tool to separate eyelashes—it's called an eyelash curler, and was inspired by her Japanese manicure tool.
