Customer hits out after being asked to tip 50%, 70% or 90% for a walk-in haircut

As the tipping debate rages on, a new location has entered the conversation - the hairdressers.

People are flocking online to debate 'how much to tip' for a 'walk-in haircut'.

While some social media users have spoken out about tipping being 'out of control' in the US, others have hit out at customers who leave 10 percent or less.

And as the tipping debate rages on, despite it often centring on service at restaurants or food services, a new location has since entered the conversation - the hairdressers.

The debate has been raging for quite some time and it doesn't look like it's dying down anytime soon.

One server took to social media stating customers who can't afford to tip at least 20 percent shouldn't be eating out in the first place.

The TikToker argued that given servers in the US sometimes may little over $3 an hour, the responsibility then falls onto the consumer to make sure they're getting paid fairly because employers don't typically budge.

However, another person - also a customer - voiced he's not completely opposed to tipping, but would only tip after dining out for something like a 'great three-course meal' on top of receiving 'good service,' noting he wants tipping to be optional rather than forced.

But when it comes to sitting down and getting your hair trimmed and having a natter with your barber or hairdresser, should you be expected to tip then?

Well, one Redditor did get the option, but the other options on offer has enraged some other social media users.

U/ CapablePerformer8582 took to the thread r/EndTipping to share an image of the payment screen after they'd just had a 'walk-in haircut'.

The screen shows the total cost of the haircut - $15 - alongside several options.

Three options for tipping include 50 percent - $7.50 - 70 percent $10.50 or 90 percent - $13.50.

Or the customer is also allowed to 'custom tip' or simply give 'no tip' at all.

And other Redditors have a lot to say about it.

U/Jazzlike_Quit_9495 wrote: "If they [sic] options are 50 percent, 70 percent, or 90 percent then the only answer is no tip."

"Someone was f**king around with those percentages. It’s absurd and brazen and entirely unappreciated by clients who visit places like this," u/SmileParticular9396 commented.

U/Madden349 said: "That's the most insane thing I've ever seen, I would do no tip just because of those options they gave and never return."

And u/Dull-Tomato-267 resolved: "I push no tip when I see unreasonable tip requests. That is shameful."

So, what do you think?
