Internet hairdressers

I

I’m sure this must be available already, but I haven’t seen it anywhere (leave me a comment if you know of one)…

As I was getting my hair cut this morning I really wished I could have been surfing the net (my hair dresser isn’t very chatty and I kinda get uncomfortable looking at myself in the mirror the whole time).

Surely it wouldn’t be too hard to have a little LCD screen at each booth and a special (hair-proof) keyboard with in-built trackball. Obviously there’d be some advertising tie-in with the browser showing ads, but in all other respects you’d have free reign to surf the web. And the tie-ins wouldn’t end there… After all, how many other business models have the customer sitting there captive in a seat for 20 mins or more? Members could join the hair-dressing club, get special benefits, be upsold to, etc.

All the internet cafes around Chatswood (where I live) are usually pretty busy, so I’d see this as a simple extension to that.

Anyone seen this in action already?

  • Although not mentioned on their website, Raw Hair at 30 Burton Street Darlinghust apparently offer this for clients. As reviewed by Hotfrog Business Directory: "Free Internet stations on the colouring level [one of four] allow clients to stay in touch with the office or surf the web while technicians tend to their tresses" [hair]. Though a Hair Stylist appointment costs $130-$200.
