How much do you tip a barber?



What is the standard on barber tipping. I have switched barbers a few times and finally just gave up and have continued with one guy.

Haircuts getting worse and worse. I have raised the guys tips and they are still garbage and I am running out of options. All these clowns want to do is chat. I don't want to chat. I want a light trim which is not difficult but each time I receive a cross between a high and tight and a Lloyd Christmas style cut. I am not going into the marines, nor am I taking a trip to Aspen.
Getting fed up with it.

Is 4 or 5 bucks on a $20 cut an audacious amount to the point where the barber is giving me a vengeance cut?

Any OT barbers wish to advise?

most of the trashy people here probably don't tip based on the earlier thread.

$3-$5 for me.

What kind of haircut? Is this a legit haircut, i.e. scissors involved. Or one where they ask you your number and proceed to shave your head?

I go to a legit place, straight razor shave in the back, etc. That being said standard cost is $11......I tip $3.......if I get a shave which is $9.......I tip $5 total.

It's a legit place man. Buy is bipolar or something. He uses scissors only some days then whips out the electric trimmer other days. I don't typically micro manage these types of things but I'm beginning to have to tell him each little thing I want done. Not being a diva either. Just want a regular everyday haircut.

I pay $5 on $30. Then again if the person cutting my hair sucked, i'd be finding a new person.

Depends if they own the shop or not.

If they keep all the money, then no tip. If they have to rent the chair, then they can earn a tip

Your problem is that you are going to a barber. When to a barber in HS. He never cut my hair the way I asked, regardless of the tip amount.

Moved to LC, got a woman who cuts my hair now. She cuts my hair the right way everytime for twenty bucks. And I have a white boy hair cut with the part.

I got a haircut yesterday for $20, and I tipped $5. My hairdresser doesn't keep the tip though, the lady who washes my hair gets it. If that makes a difference.

I have an old school barber. I tip him $8 on two, one for me and one for my kid. Barbers are easy to find. Mrs Cove spent a year looking for the right fig to style her hair though. I think she tips like $25 or some such shite. Then again, her fig does her hair super-duper-fabulously well and I don't have to worry about him hitting on her. Money well spent.
