Why we should tip our barbers
Yeah Okay Thanks
I've never thought about not tipping them
Always like 30% too
Just got laced up, $25 for cut and beard, tipped dude $8
To me that's just a given. If anything I feel like I should I should be tipping more
I expect at least a $5 tip (or more) when I give cuts.
After you pay for the service I feel like the extra tip is just an appreciation for Quality product, and professionalism....and a quick lunch lol
My Barber used to charge $25 for the haircut w/ beard edging/trim etc and i would tip him $10
Plus his fade game is on point too so I felt he deserved it
As he got more clientele his prices went up from $25 to $30 for a fade w/ beard
I still give him the $35 though, just now his tip is $5 instead of $10
Damn, yall barbers taxing.
My barber charges 14, and I give him a dub.
I just get my beard done for $10 so I give a $5 tip.
Where do you live?
In NJ/NY or any major city really I dont think you can get a decent haircut for less than $17. And that's LOW. $20 being the standard. And haircut + beard I never see under $25.
There's lots of shops around my away charging $25 for a cut, $35 for a cut+beard.
That said I found a spot with 2 (used to be 3) barbers that are hella nice with it and they charge on the low-end ($17 cut/ $25 cut/beard) so I just go there. I've paid more for cuts that aren't as a good so once I found a place I can rock with it at that price I'm not looking around. Especially cuz after multiple cuts you really get to know the barbers style and how to ask for exactly what you want.
I'm in Charlotte.
When I lived in Chicago, it was $18-$20, and that was 7-8 years ago.
I don’t get why you would need to tip someone with fixed prices
It's a given.
Barber used to charge $20 for a cut and I'd tip him $5. Now they decided this past year to up the price to $25 because people weren't tipping. I'm still tipping $5 but I get my shyt cut every week. They gonna have to calm down with these price hikes
I tip but I'm paying about $42 for a cut already. I'll do like a $3 tip to make it an even $45. $50 for a cut I ain't going.
This is why i started cuttin my own hair, need that dub for some tree lol
12 for a cut I tip 5
Been going to my guy since college. Always gave at least $5. Cut and shave was $15 and gave $20. Even when he upped his prices and said I could still pay the old amount I still paid extra cause he did good work, and always made time to cut me when I couldn't make an appointment. Last year he opened up his own shop and I go there now. I was one of his first customers so my cut will always be on point.
