Rest and relaxation. Let’s be honest about this…every single one of us reading this needs a bit more of those two little words. Some of us have busy work lives, some of us have busy home lives, some of us have busy minds. And some of us have all of the above.
Some of us escape through the scrolling of social media, some of us pick up a book or head to the gym and many of us find it sat in the salon chair. (Or so I’ve been told but that may be down to my ‘great chat’ ~insert winking emoji here please~)
Recently I read an article in an industry favourites magazine that mentioned the rise of ‘Quiet Chairs’ in salons. Just like the option of ‘smoking or non smoking seats’ in restaurants of days gone by, or the quiet carriage on a train, booking Quiet Chairs whilst getting your roots topped up is becoming a popular option for many. And I love the concept!
Most of my clients know me and my mouth and how we love to run off together but many of you who have sat in my chair will be used to my catchphrase of ‘Please don’t be offended if I go quiet here’. Once I reach a concentration point I’m commonly known to go mute but there’s many a person that will sit in my chair and ask if I mind if they ‘send a few work emails/reply to a message/complete their online food shop/flick through Instagram’ And I say this-do what you’ve got to do!! This is your time and however you choose to spend it is down to you.
