Whether you're a stylist or a client, there's always that awkward moment of what are we going to talk about that happens before you go get your blowout — or if you're kind of iffy in social situations, in general that's how you feel all the time. Thankfully, the salon quiet chair is the latest salon feature that's sure to help you relax in peace and quiet. While a bit of small talk is necessary and cordial, the quiet chair offers visitors the ability to tune out those around and take a moment of silence for themselves while their hair game gets strong.
No matter what you're looking for in your beauty experience, there are a plethora of cool salons perfectly suited to your needs. Whether you're just looking for a quick blow out or you're seeking a salon that serves ladies with natural hair, you're likely to be able to find it. Alongside the variety of services, where else can you walk in feeling super bleh and emerge flipping your newly done hair like Beyonce — besides the MAC counter? While salons may be many people's happy place and you may love your stylist like a sibling, not everyone is quite so lucky.
If you're one of those who aren't so familiar with the person giving you Kardashian-esque locks, you understand the build up to the small talk portion of your appointment. While some of this talk allows a stylist to get to know what you're looking to get out of your appointment, sometimes you — and maybe even your stylist — just want some moments to relax. That's where the salon quiet car comes into play, and it's going to be your new best friend.
Bauhaus, a salon in Cardiff, Wales, has revealed their "quiet chair." Essentially, the chair becomes a safe space for those looking to get a little quiet time into their day. If you're anything like me, you've worried that your silence could be misinterpreted as a sour attitude, but with a quiet safe zone, those in the salon will know you're just not down to discuss the interworking of your personal life or even how your lunch was that day. Scan through e-mail, read a book, whatever you need to do can happen in silence, and it basically ensures one heck of a relaxing salon visit.
While there has been no indication of the salon quiet chair moving to the United States, I can certainly keep my hopes up that this trend catches on. In the mean time, there are some great at-home beauty kits that are totally relaxing and allow your to avoid small talk altogether.
