Stylists have a physical job.

In order to get your hair to look like perfection they are gripping brushes, tugging on long locks, colouring , cutting and blow drying.

While they are standing, they accumulate repetitive strain in the neck, shoulders and wrists.

Here is a perfect warm up that stylists can do easily at their work station to prep for a day of clients.

Not a stylist?

No problem!

Do this before you go to work or if you are prepping backstage. Whatever the context, you can do this too!

The transverse abdominus is the deepest layer of abdominal muscle and is a muscle that stabilizes the spine and improves posture. It’s a muscle that requires endurance. Pilates is a great way to strengthen this muscle.
