I too tend to agree with the OP. We tip wait staff due to the fact they make min. wage or less (its different in that industry) therefore they rely on tips to earn a living. Same with valets, pizza delivery etc.

Hair dressers can earn a nice living, charging $50+ per hair cut, $100+ color...where did tipping originate for this industry?

Theres no justification in the expense of their education etc...those of us who are educated and work in law,medicine, sales etc dont get tips.

And isnt tipping optional. If a stylist is going to turn away a repeat customer for failure to tip, they are showing unprofessionalism. Some of us here scrimp and save a long time to be able to afford a good haircut.
Just my opinion.
