Did you know that the average person spends 14 hours a year at the salon?

While that’s valuable time catching up with your stylist to leave looking your best, we know this can cause a few general aches and pains. Check out some quick stretches below you can do right now to ward away a stiff neck and back!

P.S. Add ‘SSS-30’ to your booking notes for 30% off your initial appointments with Anne or Luke!
