    *This is not an exact, scientific percentage, but a rough estimate based on the fact that the only people who enjoy small talk with hairdressers are other hairdressers.

    Enter the QUIET CHAIR, offered by the Bauhaus salon in the U.K. and hopefully a soon-to-be trend on in every single continent on Earth.

    Yes, Antarctica, too. That's how important this is.

    Know where else we need the quiet chair? High school reunions.

    Also holiday dinners with Judgmental Uncle Jerry.


    And the Friday after your office holiday party when you're too hungover to even pretend to be doing work.
