    I want to know if you tip hairdressers? I usually do but since moving to London i begrudge doing it as it costs so much down here as it is so just wanted to know if anybody else does? I have an appointment on Friday for my hair doing and a spray tan but i feel bad if i dont tip them but i feel like im paying over the top as it is anyway! :confused:

    We usually pay more for stuff in London because overheads are higher and the costs must be passed on. I feel a bit screwed over at times too but it's what we get for having the world at our doorstep.

    I always tip. I usually pay £70 for a haircut and leave a £10 tip. Amongst my friends that is the "norm".

    it depends on the conversation, if they're really annoying then no, if they actually have a few brain sells then maybe depending what mood I'm in, I paid £13.50 for my last cut, I hate going to the hairdressers and have managed to find a place where u can just walk in and get it done

    I'll just come live with you if that's ok :D

    I hate living in London about 50% of the time but that will be remedied once we move.

    To be honest in the 4 1/2 years ive lived here i havent been happy with any of the hairdressers here! I always had the same hairdresser up north but i do struggle down here so thats another reason why i dont want to tip but i do as i feel bad if i leave without doing so but i only ever give £2 or so!

    Its going to cost me over £80 on Friday and i feel that is enough without tips at the moment!

    Ha ha me and Frags are the tightos!! Lol only joking i just feel that i would rather spend my money on other things! I dont get tips in my job so why should they??? :p

    Lol i knew a hairdresser would come along! :D

    I appreciate that it pays for that but i wish that somebody would pay for my travel and dinner each day lol! :D

    But your hairdressers dont seem to charge that much compared to where i am anyway so then i wouldnt mind giving a tip but its when they charge over the top silly prices that i begrudge it :)

    I'm really lucky and my sister is a hairdresser so cuts are free and I tip £10 and she charges £10 for highlights and I tip £10 again but I only get it so cheap because I'm family :D

    In her salon its £45 for a cut and £110 for highlights which is outrageous!!

    On her days off though she does do hair at peoples houses which is a fraction of the cost, might be good to see if there is someone who does that in your area?

    i do tip sometimes however i dont understand why we have/feel like we have to tip hairdressers? like kelly said no one tips me for doing my job so why should we tip someone for doing theirs? they get paid dont they?

    I don't expect to get tipped, I can understand what your all on about , some of them prices are ridiculous , 63.50 is the most expensive thing we do .
    It the shampooers , jouinors that need the extra money , they work 40 hours a week for about 70 which is crap , but we all start somewhere.
