Is $3 a terrible tip for a $12 haircut?


I usually give her $5 but I just can't this time! My Kids HAVE to get hair cuts for this wedding we are going to and and then DH paycheck was $200 short!! What do you think?

  • If it's not okay, then I'm in trouble cause that's usually about what I tip. I think it's fine :)

  • That's a 25% tip. For many states, tip is normally from 10-18%. So technically, you overtipped her.
    I do the same. If they do a really good job, a bigger tip will normally remind them the next time how their performance will be rewarded.

  • no it is not bad! That is nice that you still tip. if you go to her regulary just tell her you are sorry but you are not able to tip as much this time im sure she will understand good luck

  • I think its perfect, I would not give 5 for a 12 dollar haircut. I give 4 for my sons cut time to time because the barber takes about an hour, trimming and shaping and talking to him, etc... bt usually 3, don't worry about it!

  • I usually tip $3.00 for that. It's a 25% tip. If it is me getting my hair done, I usually tip more because my hair is long and thick and takes a while.

  • that a mount is fine , i think people are worrying way to much over how mush to tip people the stander is 10-20% so 3$ is a great a mount to be getting as a tip on a 12$ hair cut......it's 1/4 of what the haircut its self cost which is fine........
