I've never even thought to tip a hairdresser.
Im off to see mine later and am already cringing at the amount of money I'll have to fork out!

I know. It's such a rip off for women.

DS gets his hair done every 6 weeks with me at my hairdresser and he doesn't charge me for him , but he's also DH hairdresser and we've been going to him for over ten years , I don't tip but do buy him birthday and xmas presents

I only tip good service at restaurants (and only where they do full table service, not when it's an order at the till kind of thing) and if I hand a taxi driver a $20 and the total is like, $17.60 or something, then I say to keep the change. I see no need to tip, especially hairdressers. It costs me $150+ for my haircut, plus she has the business of DH and my boys. We fork out over $200 every 5-7 weeks at my hairdresser, no tipping needed!

I have never tipped a hairdresser and until reading this thread had never even heard of anyone tipping a hairdresser (in Australia).
Why tip a hairdresser in particular OP? Or do you tip all service providers (e.g waiters, food delivery, taxi etc)?
I don't tip in general (except overseas where expected). It's not a practice I'd like to see develop here and I like to think that in the main people in Australia are paid a decent wage for their job and we don't have a culture of relying on tips to make up a wage shortfall as in other countries.

The cost of a haircut, even for a kid, is crazy.
If it was reasonable and I went to the same one each time, yes I may tip.
