Shhh! Salon offers silent haircuts to combat an 'overstimulated world' originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
If you prefer peaceful silence while getting your haircut, there's actually a salon for that.
In October, London-based Not Another Salon announced its "silent haircut" service where clients can opt-out of the chitchat.
"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," said the salon's owner, Sophia Hilton, on Instagram.
"Your stylist will still talk you though your consultation and any hair related information throughout your service, but the rest of the time is yours," she continued. "All you have to do is ask for a 'silent' cut or color when booking and no one will judge you for it. In fact, the stylist would probably also love it too!"
Not Another Salon has now caught the attention of many social media users.
One Instagrammer left a comment saying, "I've not had my hair cut in 12 months as I can't face the chit chat at my local salons (I've tried many!) where invariably I feel like an outsider or not cool enough/up to date with trends. I'd love it if all salons gave you this option."
Another wrote, "This is a dream come true, so many times I want to go and just close my eyes and relax."
Aside from this new service, the salon prides itself for its "no judgment policy."
"In order for us to be a true non-judgment company we need to consider all our clients' needs," said Hilton. "With mental health showing up more than ever now, feeling comfortable to say when you need time out couldn't be more important."
