if you're the kind of person who gets clammy just thinking about the idea of having to 'make conversation' then this idea is for you.
A hair salon in Wales has launched the first 'Quiet Chair,' for people who'd really rather not talk about their holidays/night out/The X Factor while getting their hair done, thanks very much.
The owner of the Bauhuas Aveda Salon in Cardiff says it'll be a chance for customers to switch off, meaning your next hair cut could be just as relaxing as any other spa treatment.
"Some clients worry they aren’t good at chatting, some just don’t want to do it at all and would rather relax with a magazine," explains Scott Miller.
"We get clients for an hour. There could be complete chaos outside. We wanted to make sure we were giving the ultimate experience."
After an initial consultation with your stylist, you're then free to catch up on work emails, read a few trashy mags or just take some time to think.
And if you're really after a no-noise experience, you can even opt to have your hair done upstairs, in a fully private area of the salon.
"We hope the service will give everybody exactly what they want and make for a pleasant, comfortable experience for everybody, however chatty they’re feeling that day." says Scott.
Now all we need is for 'quiet taxis,' 'quiet dentists' and 'quiet buses' to become a thing…
