I somewhat agree.

I do find it a little irritating that I'm paying between 40 and 60 bucks - for a cut alone - and then I have to give them a 15/20% tip on top of it. And they probably only did an okay job anyway. Not to mention I probably had to hear about their life most of the appointment.

I've gone and had a cut and color done and it cost me $120 - so I have to tip this person $20? I don't think so.

My best friend of years was a hair stylist, and she always mentioned the people who gave her a $10 tip - like that was a big deal. So I generally give between $8 and $10.

But then again, I hate paying for anything, so I've been cutting my hair for over 2 years.
