38% of clients don’t tip their therapist after a trip to the salon

A new study into Brits tipping culture has revealed that 38% don’t tip their therapist after a visit to the beauty salon.  

According to OnBuy.com’s survey of more than 2,000 Brits, just under two thirds (62%) give their therapist a little extra cash post-treatment and stated they do so as it’s just how things are done (61%), they would feel ashamed not too (24%) and because they think beauty salon staff don’t get paid enough (15%).

Meanwhile, hairdressers came out as one of the higher tipped professions, with a tip split of 73% yes and 27% no.

The most tipped profession is waiting staff at a restaurant (88%) while the least is Uber drivers, with just 19% of respondents stating they would give the driver a little extra cash.

On top of this, new research by the National Hairdressers’ Federation (NHF) has revealed that 47% of its beauty salon members have said that they have experienced a drop in the number of tips left by clients in recent years.
