Never tipped a hairdresser here in Australia. Ever.
In usa I have - but often because someone different washes your hair. If I remember tipping hairdresser was the done thing in the UK though when I lived there.

I suppose it's just a habit I had from back home.
I would tip a good hairdresser but not a bad one.
My regular hairdresser would have got a tip each time I saw her but I was never a regular 6-8 weeks customer, it would be good going if I got to see her 3 times a yr.
It's so hard to find a hairdresser I like so I suppose I like to show my appreciation by giving them a little tip.
Sorry, being hounded by the kids here.
I won't be tipping for kids cuts from now on though

I tip in restaurants but as @Moxy said, when it's table service and when the service is good.
I don't tip hair dressers, but I do round up for taxis.
I don't tip delivery drivers because usually if I order pizza or something I order online because I have no cash on me. Having said that I was flamed on an etiquette site for not tipping delivery drivers, even if I paid by credit card and had no cash. Apparently so completely rude!!!
anyway, after paying $15 for DS's first haircut that took a total of 5 minutes, there's no way I'm tipping!

It's never occurred to me. I don't tip in Australia.

Lol never tipped a hair dresser. However cutting my kids hair is like watching a cowboy ride a wild bull.
I really should buy my hairdresser some chocolates or something.

No, but she does a great job with DS's hair and we can sometimes spend up to 30 minutes there just for DS so I wasn't comfortable just paying the $5 she asked for so now I pay $10.

$5??!! I pay $25 for the kids. I don't mind paying a decent amount, but I do think that's a bit much. They used to be $15, and have gone up $10 in 4 years! All the salons around here are the same price.

Seriously can Australia get anymore expensive.
