The solution? A salon in Cardiff, U.K. has come up with a "quiet chair" so you can sit there and scroll through your phone without feeling guilty!
"Our team is full of brilliant conversationalists, it's an important part of being a hair stylist, and most of our customers love coming in to have a chat," the owner told Wales Online. "But at the same time, we understand people lead busy lives where they may have been communicating with people all day and want some relief."
He continued, "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."
