NEW YORK — The retailer Beauty Brands has completed the installation of its studio-within-a-store concept in all 54 stores.
The studio concept represents Beauty Brands’ effort to expand deeper into cosmetics and skin care. About 25 percent of existing store space (stores range from 6,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet) has been reallocated to make room for cosmetics and skin-care brands such as Tarte, Smashbox, Too Faced, Peter Thomas Roth, Dermalogica and Philosophy.
