I went to the hair salon today to get a cut. I didn't want anything fancy, just 5 inches off. I went to a salon right up the street from me who charges $14. I usually go to my usual stylist who charges $45, but for just a simple cut $45 is a little much for me lol. I gave the lady $20, so that's a $6 tip. I opened the door & was about to leave until I saw a flyer hanging on their wall for a place to host kid's birthday parties. I guess the stylist thought I left(there's a wall between their work station & waiting room)because when asked by her friend how much I tipped she said "a lousy ass $6." I thought $6 was good for a cut with no wash.

when my kids get their hair cut at the 15 dollar place i tip each stylist 5. when i get mine done its usually closer to A hundred so i tip 25. ( i rarely go myself because i dont like hair salons). maybe im being cheap.

That's about average for around here so I would think it was decent.

3 moms liked this

I usually tip $1-2 . She should be happy with a $6 tip for a $14 hair cut

I think that is decent. You gave her more than a 40% tip and I think the standard is 25-30%.

If the person cutting owns the salon I don't tip. It's all going in their pocket anyway. but if I go somewhere like great clips I tip $5 for a $12 hair cut.

Actually I was wrong, the standard is 15-20%.

That was almost a 50% tip. It sounds good to me.
