TIME stops for no woman.

In response to the pace of modern life, a salon in Ipswich has given its busy clients access to the internet while having their hair done.

Fusion, in Tacket Street, has installed wi-fi so ladies can check their e-mails, surf the web or continue working while they have nipped out of the office for a perm.

The salon, which opened five weeks ago, is thought to be the only one in Ipswich to offer the internet to its customers.

Owner Linzi Cunnell said: “I have a lot of ladies who have colours or treatments and they can be here for two or three hours at a time.

“Before we opened I spoke to some of our clients and they said it was a good idea. It is an extra service that enables them to fit an appointment into their busy schedule.”

Regular customer Liz Harsant today praised the service.

The on-the-go Ipswich council leader often rushes from one meeting to another and sometimes faces up to 100 e-mails in her inbox if she leaves it for any length of time.

Mrs Harsant said: “It is a really good idea and a modern way of thinking. If you have got your laptop there it is so useful.

“All my time is taken up with council work, so I can read my e-mails there and answer them.

“Sometimes if I was out for two hours at the hairdressers, I could come back to 90 to 100 e-mails.”

The team of Linzi, Tracy, Donna, Kirsty and Carol are excellent friends and had worked together for 10 years before opening the salon.
