Do you tip when you get a haircut? How much?

I usually tip $5-$10 for a haircut. Am I tipping too high? Haircuts range $15-$20 for me. Is there a rule of thumb for tipping barbers/hair stylists?

I haven't been to a barber in 10 years, so I have no clue.

I tip like $2-$3 depending on how they did. For the not even 15 minutes of their time I took up, I feel like that's fair. My hair cut is like $15 so a $3 tip is still 20%.

Edit to add: I'm a cheap ass. The worst is tipping bartenders for one drink.

Haven't had a haircut in months now. When I did go it would depend on how good of a job they did. Usually between $5-$8 unless it was a trash cut

No..but it is evident you are since it still sits on your mind.

I guess I can't be surprised at the motive of your thread. It would be a shame if you gave a larger tip than most for a service. Mr. Even Stevens.
