What Is Beauty Parlor Stroke Syndrome?

By Tameka Davis

The beauty parlor. It’s one of the last places you’d think could cause a stroke. While it’s rare, a condition known as beauty parlor stroke syndrome could occur when your neck is hyperextended for a long time – like for a shampooing at the salon. Mayo Clinic says beauty parlor stroke syndrome is seen as the potential cause of strokes, usually in younger people. Experts say you don’t need to stop your beauty routine, just make sure your neck is supported and the wash basin is padded with a towel.
