Going to the hair salon usually means making small talk with your hairdresser,but that’s just not the case in one salon in London. Not Another Salon knows that some people don’t like all that chatting, so they’re offering customers the option of booking a “Silent Haircut.” The service comes at no extra charge, and after an initial consultation, where you’ll have to talk to your stylist, the rest of the appointment will be talk free.
“While so many of us love a chin wag at the hairdressers others just need some time out and that should be ok to ask for,” reads a post on the salon’s Instagram page. “So why is it we feel embarrassed to say we need some quiet time?” In a later interview owner Sophia Hiltonexplained her reasoning for the new service, noting, “in our over-stimulated world, alone time is scarce,” which she believes “is the key to better mental health.”
- Turns out, plenty of people are down for a quiet cut, with the post receiving responses like “amazing,” and “love this,” with one person noting, “I'd love it if all salons gave you this option.”
