Tip-Free Salons: Yea or Nay?

Would You Rather Go to a Tip-Free Salon?

Depending on the salon you go to, a trip to get your hair cut and/or colored can involve tipping not only your stylist (and even the salon owner, but the shampoo person and assistant who blow-dries your hair, too. But have you ever been to a salon where tipping does not exist? At Ladies and Gentlemen Salon and Spa locations in Northeast Ohio, tips are not accepted, and here's their explanation:

From express level to master level, all clients are given the consistently great customer service without the expectation of a tip. Your best expression of appreciation for good service is to recommend our salon to a friend.

A no-tipping policy certainly takes the guesswork out of who (and how much) you should tip, but what do you think? If you were certain your stylists were given appropriate compensation for their skills, would you prefer to go to a tip-free salon?

YES, I'd finally stop having panic attacks about what to tip. It's ridiculous. It's worse that I have really bad mental math so I'm always trying to figure out what 20% of my haircut is!

I agree people should be paid well, but as we know life is not fair. So here it goes, it's my money, I earned it and I'll spend it how I choose. I have never paid/tipped for anything I didn't feel deserved it and I never will. Since I've been a waitress, yes a waitress, I would like to say I earned a lot of money in tips; sometimes more in a day than my daily salary. That should tell you something! If you feel underpaid and unappreciated go find another job, you found the 1st one, you'll find another one. And if we could treat people the way we would like to be treated this would not be an issue. I'm climbing off my soapbox now and I'll go water my garden and enjoy the sunshine with my :dog: and parakeet, they love being outside. :jack:

What gets me stressed is that I sit there and panic about how much cash I have on hand and if it can be broken up easily. Whenever I need $1 or $5 bills I never to have any, you know?

I love the idea. I'd rather know the cost up front, rather than stressing over whether I tipped well or not.

My old salon did this and I LOVED it. It really took the hassle out. They did raise their prices a bit when they first transitioned, but I was OK with that. In order to enforce it though the staff really couldn't accept tips. When I moved I was so used to not tipping that I had to return to the salon the next day to tip because I left without doing so!

I wish tipping didn't exist for anything. People should be paid fairly up front, be they stylists, waitstaff, etc.
