    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!

    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.
