Now you can go to the hair salon and stay online as a result of a new deal inked between Wi-Fi provider Bitbuzz and hair salon Tony&Guy in Ireland.

The Clarendon Street, Dublin, store became the first to try out the new Bitbuzz initiative earlier this year and the results were as impressive as expected.

In just four months, more than 2,700 customers logged in, using just fewer than 25,000 minutes of complimentary Wi-Fi and downloading 13,500 megabits of data.

This month, the scheme will be rolled across the country, bringing Wi-Fi access to customers at all stores, including those in Belfast, Naas, Galway, Dundrum, Blackrock, Malahide and Sandymount.
