No. He was great. He just sat there and did not talk to her though lol. It took less than five mins.
So I did good on the tip then. I feel better!!


Quoting NBean311:

30% is a generous tip. 

I used to be a hairdresser, and 15% was the expected amount. Unless children are particularly difficult, I don't see any reason to be upset about the amount of the tip.

Depends on where you go and your state province. 

In my province you do not have to be licences or go to school. 

If its a place like Magicuts or a low budget place $3 for a $10 cut is ok. If its a higher end place $5-10. 


Remember your stylist went to school to learn how to use chemicals to open your hair cutical to change its colour or shape. To give a good scalp massage. To keep up to date on current trends and more!

if the cut was good give $5...

besides us hairdressers have websites like cafemom to talk about our clients

I believe in a 5-10 $ minimum tip for a haircut. But I don't think youe tip sounds particularly stingy and its very ruse for the lady to show she's pissed about it

Right... She didnt do any of that. Just gave him a buzz cut. So I should have tipped her $10? I dont think so lol.

Seems like a good tip to me. Her attitude seemed wrong though.

My mother is an hairdresser she charges way more than that, and she doesn't expect any kind of tip, if they want to then awesome but otherwise she doesn't expect one- so yes it was just fine.

My son gets this complicated hair cut with designs so I tip $10 on a $10 cut. It takes the guy forever to do it too.

My sons haircut is 20, he is two and they always mess his hair up! I tip 4-5 dollars, and if the person looked offended I would erase the tip!
