This pretty much sums it upGetting my hair cut was my absolute least favorite thing to do as a child. It was just uncomfortable, sitting there under a bright light with the itchy sheet over you having a stranger touch you and nip at you with scissors and such. The whole experience was just always very irritating to me, and it always seemed like it took way longer than it should.
The way the stylists try to make conversation with you the whole time just comes off as overly forced and obnoxious. A few occasions I've had some who just shut up and do their jobs, or don't act like I'm some gigantic asshole for not wanting to constantly engage them in irreverent banter. It's even more awkward when you have an unconventional hairstyle and have to answer the same lame questions over and over and rebuff their offers or suggestions for something new.
This is probably why I get my hair trimmed maybe twice a year, and preferably at home by someone I actually like talking to.
