New hairdresser and forgot to tip on my first visit. How much should I tip and just the stylist or junior too? I pay around £45 for a cut and blow dry.

I don't tip anymore. At more than £45 I don't see why.

I tipped my old hairdresser something like £5 but left nothing for whoever washed my hair. That was ages ago. And yep wages should be sufficient so that you don't have to add onto cost of your cut to tip!

I don't tip , it's 40 quid! I put some money in her Xmas card every year instead.

I don't tip. I pay £65 for a cut and consider that to be plenty.

I also make full use of the free fringe trims, and refreshments (wine and Lindor) given the extortionate price.

Gosh, I truly thought most people tipped! Maybe I'll just continue as I started off - pay for my hair cut and a cheery bye and thanks!

I sometimes leave a couple of quid but it depends what change I have in my purse

I've also stopped tipping! I'm a spa therapist and don't get tipped so I'm bitter grin
