At ROBB Salon, Mangled Manicures No More-------
Whether it’s a function of nerves or just the ol’ OCD acting up, those of you who are chronic nail biters know that it’s a hard habit to break. But not impossible, says Robbie Schaeffer, owner of ROBB, the first OPI concept salon located in Studio City, California. To help his clients with chewed-up, nubby digits take the first steps toward recovery, Schaeffer has created the Nail Biter Program, which comes with a personalized plan for rehabilitation. It begins with a one-on-one consultation to determine treatment options; on-site care with a trained manicurist ensues, followed by the design of an at-home maintenance strategy. “The idea is to get nails out of the mouth and back to ideal length and strength,” Schaeffer says—and even nails that have been more or less completely bitten off are repairable, he insists: Acrylic tips can stand up to even your most maniacal teeth-chomping moments, apparently.
