Going to the hairstylist gives me social anxiety

Somewhere along the way, we all collectively decided that we must talk to the hairstylist when they're cutting our hair. I typically am a social person, but socializing with our hair stylists is particularly stressful — we're seated in one place, there's nowhere to go, and you're going to be there for awhile. And if your stylist is on the quieter side? Forget about it. Having to create that much conversation leaves me absolutely exhausted after a session.

Men, on the other hand, are utterly silent when they go to their barbers. Why is it that we have to gab? Can we just disconnect for once?
