By Gerald Lynch on November 1st, 2012

Would you rather be sending a tweet or checking your email than be telling your hairdresser about your holiday plans? Hairstyling chain Toni&Guy get this and have teamed up with O2 to offer all their customers free in-store Wi-Fi across every branch.

Toni&Guy’s 1.5million UK customers will be able to browse the web, watch videos and access social networking sites for free, letting them post a picture of their new do to Facebook while still in the chair without eating into mobile data plan allowances.

The free service will require a single one-time sign up process, which will then allow customers to automatically connect to every Toni&Guy Wi-Fi network in the country once in range.

The sign up process will also let customers connect to other brands’ networks that use O2′s free Wi-Fi service, including Debenhams, McDonald’s, Costa, Fuller’s pubs, House of Fraser, All Bar One and Café Rouge.

Ben Mein, commercial director for O2 Wifi, said:

“Hair and beauty salons are a new context for Wi-Fi and we are immensely pleased to partner with Toni & Guy given the quality and size of the audience that will be using the service. Their customers’ lifestyles mean many are time-poor so the 90 minutes to themselves is prized and, with a high penetration of smart devices, this creates a perfect opportunity for O2 Wifi and Toni & Guy to engage and enrich that experience through unique content.

“As demonstrated by the way O2 Wifi has changed the market with a truly free and open Wi-Fi service to consumers, we share the same philosophy with Toni & Guy and it will be exciting to see how we develop the relationship.”

Forget Paul Weller, the real Modfather was Steve Marriott of The Small Faces. As cockney as pie and mash or pearly kings and queens, Marriott's long-sided hair cut and deft fashion sense laid the foundation for decades of mod fashion to follow.
