We've all been there. It's 8am on a Sunday, you're in the hairdressers after a heavy night and the last thing you're in the mood for is a bit of small talk.

But what if we said you could now book a silent salon appointment? London based hairdressers Not Another Salon are promising their clients some much needed "quiet time," at their request.

Obviously, you have to tell your hairdresser what treatment you want - they can't be expected to read your mind - but after that their lips will be sealed.

If you don't like chatting with your hairdresser you'll be thrilled at the new silent service available at Not Another Salon (

Yep, that means no natter about your entire CV, family life and ex boyfriends chronologically dating back to 2014.

It really is a beautiful day for people that despise small talk.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan, salon owner Sophia Hilton said: "In order for us to be a true non judgment company we need to consider all our clients needs.

"With mental health issues on the rise, feeling comfortable to say when you need time out couldn't be more important."

Of course, for some people the idea of sitting in complete silence is even more skin-crawling.

So, don't worry, the salon will still be offering its normal nattery hairdressers for anybody who so wishes.

This isn't the first hairdresser to launch a silent option to customers.

Bauhaus salons in Cardiff also announced the 'quiet chair' back in 2015, adding that clients can even request the music is turned down at their cutting station.

The owner Scott Miller told The Guardian at the time: "Coming to get your hair done could be the best thing that happens to you that day. We get clients for an hour. There could be complete chaos outside. We wanted to make sure we were giving the ultimate experience."

See you there, just keep the chit chat to a minimum... yeah?
