The 19,000-square-foot space with two floors will be a playground for beauty lovers and will showcase all of Avon’s best-selling collections including ANEW, Skin So Soft, CHI Haircare, The Face Shop, belif and more. Guests can experience all of Avon’s favorites as well as the latest innovations in skincare, color cosmetics, fragrance and personal care.

To ensure a safe space for all guests, the Studio will be thoroughly cleaned before opening and will have increased cleanings and regular disinfecting throughout each day. There will also be a limited number of customers who can enter at any given time and social distancing guidelines will be followed. All testers will be for display only and sampling will be limited to prepackaged samples. Hand sanitizer will be available for use throughout the space and services such as makeovers, skin treatments and in-studio classes will be suspended at this time.
Studio 1886 will be accessible to both Representatives and the community where they can learn, play, train and rediscover the beauty of Avon. Key elements include a Make Up Bar where visitors can immerse themselves in Avon color and see full shade ranges. Avon’s new digital catalog with AR makeup will also be accessible where guests can virtually try on makeup and get shade matched with foundation, eyeshadow, blush and lip colors. The Skincare Zone will be an area to learn about the latest in skincare innovation and find the best products to transform your skin and empower confidence. The Break and Lounge Area are the perfect spots to spend some time networking and chatting about the latest beauty news while utilizing the best-in-class technology.
In addition to products, Studio 1886 will provide a hub of community engagement for learning and education.
