Tipping help

For the first time in ages I need to go to a hair salon today to get my hair cut and blow dried. Normally my friend who is a hairdresser does my hair. Question is can someone tell me what is the usual tipping rate? Thanks. Smile

It depends what you're having done, really, but I tend to work on 10% for most things.

Flipping heck you are generous! My hair to be cut and blown is about £30 - I give the girl £3. I did used to tip 50p to the girl who shampoos - am I mean then? I know people who don't tip at all.

I believe I read somewhere that if the salon owner cuts your hair, tip nothing, if one of the lackeys does it then you tip...

Should you tip hairdressers?

I never tip mine, because it takes about ten minutes. I don't feel its long enough

You're not born lazy, it's an acquired skill

That is the general rule but I have also read that hairdressers today generally do not expect to be tipped - they are given quite a decent salary and they can also earn commission on any other products that they sell.

That said, I pay £27 for mine and I give £30 - the girl who cuts my hair is a junior stylist and have always made a really good job of it. If you want the top stylist to cut it you have to pay something like £55!!!
