Pre-recession I always tipped-around €10 for a head of highlights and a part of my recession cost cutting I don't tip anymore.Am I out of line for not tipping?Getting the hair done costs enough without having to throw a tip in too!!!

I couldn't afford to get my hair cut if I tipped every time but I would tip at christmas

I don't tip. I'm tight like that. I tip if service is good in a restaurant but in a hairdressers I figure you pay for what you get. I'm an optician, I don't get paid a tip when someone collects their glasses!

Dont tip anymore - cut back on everything and its expensive enough to get hair done anyway.

No I dont tip the hairdresser (or the girl that does my gel nails). I just think that its expensive enough without adding on an extra few bob every time. I can afford to tip but I just dont. Im obviously tight :-8 . I tip in restaurants, but thats about it.

I always tip - maybe a €5 if I have it - maybe 3 euro if I am skint. I think you're either a tipper kind a person or not. I tip for all the usual things; taxi, salon, restaurant. I just think it's nice to tip; I remember when I was a bag packer in Superquinn someone once tipped me a pound and I was so happy! It made such a difference for someone to actually acknowledge the work I was doing. (which obviously can be done through other means too, not just tipping! I once wrote a letter to a primary school teacher that I had when I was a kid. I was 24 when I wrote the letter, he was such an amazing teacher and I felt I should tell him. Anyways, he got back to be with another letter, thanking me and saying how much it meant to him that I remembered him and that his teaching had such an impact on my life. So writing letters is good too!)
