There's only one question many of us ever want to hear from our barber.
"What'll it be?"
No "Got any holidays booked?" Nothing along the lines of "Did you see the match, sir?" Just "What would you like the next 30 minutes of snipping to result in?"
Which is why we're thinking of making all future bookings in Cardiff's Bauhaus, to take advantage of their new 'quiet chair'.
In an interview with Wales Online, Owner Scott Miller said he wanted to offer his customers a chance to "switch off".
"We understand people lead busy lives where they may have been communicating with people all day and want some relief," said Miller. "A trip to the hair salon is supposed to be relaxing, and while for some people that means catching up on what’s been going on in their lives, not everybody is comfortable with small talk."
You're bloody right, Miller. Customers can book a 'quiet chair' on arranging a hair cut, ensuring that they won't be asked any questions (other than how they'd like their hair cut).
"We wanted to take the embarrassment away, and for customers to know we won’t be offended if they don’t want to do the small talk often associated with visiting the hair salon."
Quiet hair. It's the future we all want.
