The amount you give is not as important as what it represents, it’s what you can afford and it’s all about the appreciation. Our job is making you look and feel fantastic!
But if you simply want to acknowledge your barber that you like the cut…how much to tip? It’s better to not look at this barber bonus in terms of percentages when it comes to a basic haircut. After all, you’re not tipping the waiter at a restaurant; it’s more personal than that.
So the rules are slightly different here – €5 and over is a reasonable amount. Want to get even more personal? Hand the tip directly to your barber rather than the receptionist, and shake hands on that solid hair cutting or shaving session ?
If you have a regular barber you may want to combine your tips and give them all together at Christmas.
