The Burning Question*: Do you tip in the hairdressers?

It’s Monday, so let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Reader Susan Kearns sent us this dilemma last week and it had us all nodding in agreement. When you’ve just paid approximately a zillion euro to get your hair trimmed by three milimetres, the common practice is to tip the hairdresser or barber a bit extra. It’s all a bit Irish isn’t it? What do you think? Mad or fair?
