For the first time this year I tipped the stylist and spent $120. Now the haircut wasn't all that, and the products in my hair weren't worth a penny for me. But that was the first time I'd ever heard of tipping a stylists as well as going into a very nice salon. Alot of people think I wasted my money but I would have felt bad, after hearing that you should tip stylist, if I had not tipped.

I guess I kind of agree with the OP, sometimes it's a steep road to climb but again, I am a newbie to all this dry cutting on curly hair so I'd appreciate any kind of help with my hair as far as a cut goes. But before that, I never heard of it.
