FAO all females - Do you Tip the Beautician after having a Wax?

26
Found 23rd Feb 2011
I have my eye brows waxed often, cost £6 where I am and I usually tip them after too, Just a habit from being in a hairdressers, I kind of thought you do in a beauty salon too.

But Im just wondering whether I am the only one. Need to get them done today and just have so much to pay for this weekend not sure if to keep the tip to go towards paying for the rest of this weekends stuff!

Well just thought Females would be the ones mainly to have eye brows waxed.
Ouch glad I don't grow no beard

i dont as far as im concerned they are paid already

I almost always tip, however if this month you could put money to other things then do that! They'll get a tip the next time your in!

I don't have enough eyebrow to warrant waxing, but no I wouldn't tip if I did.

why should anyone who provides a one to one service get a tip? thats what they are paid for.

No I don't tip, its only takes like 5 mins for them to do it so I don't bother.

Thanks all, I won't feel that bad walking out just giving them the £6 then.
I was brought up to tip the hairdressers, taxi's, at a resturant so i naturally tipped in the beauty salon. But I just think I don't get tipped in my job when I deal with the public daily!

i dont tip lol

Only place I haven't had waxed is my legs. Im happy to do them myself other ways! Tried waxing everywhere else though.

My SIL does the Threading, but I just don't get it, Maybe I should look into it as I have heard a few people say it lasts longer and looks better.

Just the one eyebrow or you keep one bushy for fun?!

I usually always tip a hairdresser or beautcian.
The only thing that would stop me for not tipping would be if the didn't chat away etc.

Aye I was born weird, only one eyebrow;-)

nah, only joking, not heavy enough eyebrows to count as 2 though.

I know i think its crazy how we think its the ' Norm ' to tip hairdressers / barbers etc ( and i do it ! ) but why ? ......for a start they arent cheap , it cost me £8 to have my sons hair cut a few weeks back ( he is 6 ) and will need doing again this week !.....never really thought about until now , but i agree they are doing a job they are paid for , do we tip a supermarket chechout person for scanning our goods ..........no , do we tip the cashier at Argos when we buy something ?.............no !, lol its bizarre and something i have always done in resteraunts , salons and with taxis , .......i am now wondering WHY .....X)
