Default this might explain the bad hair cut........

I got me a hair cut from my friendly barber today, 12 bucks!! up from the normal 10 bucks.

anyway, when I got back to work I was complaining about the price of a hair cut and so on.... and I guy I worked with asked me how much I tipped him??? What?? I don't tip the barber.....he said he does all the time.

Do you tip your barber?

Why tip the barber? If the guy wanted $12 for a cut, charge $12

Yup, 2 or three bucks...not sure why but I've always done it. Still lots cheaper than my wife, costs her 60 bucks to get her hair cut. Don't think she tips...so whats the difference?

Because most of them are on straight commission... 50% so their cut is $6...

My haircut is $10. I give him a $20. His place has 3 steps and is not wheelchair accessible. He's risked a hernia getting me in there many times. It's the least I can do.

sue his butt!

My haircuts are $10, I have little hair, but I still tip 20% minimum. But I see lots of guys give him $20 and say keep it.

I usually try to tip 30% at the bar.

I have to put in my 2 cents on this one.

A person doesnt have to tip. Its there right but I ask them to go work in a public area like waitors, waitresses, casino clerks, bar tenders or hair dressers. Until you do that you wont appreciate there job. I didnt even know I should tip for good service until I graduated high school and started working in a few of those fields.
Also it seemed like the people who tipped were always the ones winning. They definatly werent griping like some of the others. I think if you tip from your heart then it will all come back around full circle. If you give with a bitter heart or dont give at all then dont expect good things to come full cirlcle.

Still I say a person will have a completely different understanding or respect for the people that do work in public areas that are allowed tips.

I live in the Northeast...Most men's haircuts are 15$....I normally would tip 5$
I used to get a haircut 12 plus times a year...
I ain't that pretty to be spending 240$ plus on haircuts a year.
So as was mentioned 4 years ago, 20$ clippers and close to 1000$ worth of savings,
I even cut my hair myself (as well as my sons)
I would do my daughters too, (and my wifes...there is the real savings) if she would let me!

Just think of the money you'll save if you cut her hair in the middle of the night...she'll never know

I'll let you know, the hairs getting on the long side again, had to borrow a bobbie pin for the old lady yesterday to keep it from getting in the bow string.

I also cut my own. Once every 2 or 3 months. I guess I'm no slave to fashion.

Well it's that time of the year again.

I was going to stop by the barber on my way to work this AM but after looking in my wallet I decided to give it another day or two, I might want to eat sometime this week.

The wife says I'm starting to look like a hippy. I say what's wrong with that?

Well the dreaded trip to the barber is over.

I'm 15 dollars lighter (I left a tip this time) the wife is happy, and the best part is my hunting hat fits again.
