re: How much do you tip a barber?


Yeah my guy is old school. Old school guys usually do it right. It looks good for the most part then he just botches other parts to the point where it seems it has to be on purpose. I really think the guy is pissed about the tip.

I tipped him a few bucks as I never really knew the proper percentage but it appears $5 is the way to go on top of $20.

Swoops are might higher maintenance. It is likely worth the extra expense to have one done right.

Haircut is $35, normally tip $10

Edit: I only get my hair trimmed every other month.

Dear God. That's way too much for a haircut. Especially if you're a man (i.e., not getting perms/highlights/extensions/whatever).

99.9% of the cost of a haircut is profit for the barber. I never tip unless I receive really exceptional service.

Haircut is $18 and I always give $25 total. Last thing I was is someone pissed off cutting my hair. A bad haircut will grow back but you'll sure look like shite for 2 to 4 weeks. Worth a few extra bucks to me.

I figure it's a little more personal and required attention for the barber than a waiter so AT A MINIMUM it should be in the ~20% range. I tip higher because to me it seems to be much more attention.

You pay for a haircut before getting the haircut?

I haven't let a guy cut my hair in 15 years. The girl that cuts my hair takes her time and does a great job, so I always tip her at least 10 bucks on a 20 dollar hair cut.

$5 on $20. Sport Clip special

When those BBW throw that hot towel down and start massaging my head, I'm in heaven.

re: How much do you tip a barber?


There is nothing worse than a bad hair cut. When the girl that used to cut my hair moved to Montgomery I tried the place where my roommate went. The first cut wasn't so bad, the second time though, she just rushed me thru and really fricked up my hair. I ended up going to this place close to my house to get it fixed. I was so pissed off because I ended up spending like 60 dollars on 2 haircuts in less than 2 hours. Luckily the place I went to did a great job of fixing the train wreck on my head, so I've been going there ever since.
