My own barber story. When I was living in Montreal, I'd get my haircut at this shop run by a bunch of old Italian guys. I don't think there was a one in the bunch younger than sixty, and their English was... limited. Which was great for me because there was no chit-chat, and the haircuts were fast and cheap. It was obvious that this was a men's barber shop. There were never any female customers, the model haircut pictures on the walls were all guys, and it had the cleanliness of a bachelor pad.

One day, a woman came in and asked for a haircut. She had a pretty butch look to her already. The barbers were VERY flustered. They tried explaining to her in broken English that they only gave mens style cuts. She said she WANTED a men's style. They went back and forth with the barbers politely but stubbornly declining. This went on for a while until the woman left in a huff. My barber returned to cutting my hair, and said that he didn't take her business because female customers are never satisfied.

Now, I'm sure this goes against anti-discrimination law, but I was very sympathetic to these guys, even though the woman wasn't asking for a feminine haircut, which they may not have known how to do.

I'm stunned that Wyntyr pays 25 dollars for a haircut.

This was years ago.  Plus in the south.  I'm sure you and Xerxes (haha noooooope) and the other coastal fellas pay exorbitant amounts though.  I'm currently growing out my hair for the first time so I'm just letting that shit grow.

Also, I am eating pizza with sausage and peppers and watching Blood Father

... I don't think anyone should discriminate against anyone for something as arbitrary as the color of their skin. That's being a shitty person, as well as a shitty businessperson. But if that's what they choose, they have to deal with the results.
That sums it up.
Like i'd tell ppl at work who had trouble following orders, the choice is yours, you just have to deal with the results.
Interesting read, glad i clicked on this.

On average I pay fifteen dollars, and that's current day prices. Twenty-five bucks, years ago, in the South? You're a veritable Fancy Dan.

I haven't paid for a haircut in years. I got the worst fucking hair on the planet. It's half short and curly, half long and wavy, and pretty thick. I can't actually do anything with it so I use clippers on it periodically and keep it super short.

Damn, dude. Yeah, the last time I got a haircut I think it was nearly $40 plus tip. But I really am a Fancy Lad when it comes to hair. I actually wanted to be a stylist for a while

^^^not a bad profession for a ppl person.
Just going by online persona, that would work for you, as you seem fairly gregarious.

I'm not as dickish or as extroverted irl as I am on here, but it's probably close. Good stylists at the better salons around here routinely make 6 figures, so it's definitely not a bad line of work. Being able to fudge taxes helps them a lot, though.

I actually enrolled in cosmetology school because I wanted to do both hair and makeup, but you're required to do the manicure and pedicure stuff for months during school, and you can't pay me enough to touch someone's feet. No way in hell.

^^^Yeeeaaaah...i cant see messing with someone else's feet like that. ???

Me and a buncha guys would get mani pedis after long deployments. I always washed the HELL out of my feet prior, and tipped big, as i just consider doing that to be a raw deal.

Like they said before, if you're in a small town, and the only people offering you that service decline, you're fucked.

This is one of those issues I can't ever really decide upon. Wyntyr makes a compelling argument, but really, both sides more or less do when I hear people argue this issue.

All I'm here to contribute is that my haircuts are $15-$20. Usually go to Great Clips which is $13 + $3-5 for a tip depending if they make me talk or not.

But more importantly, why am I tipping for a haircut? They don't make 23 cents an hour like waiters do, right?

You tip so they don't "make a mistake". Barbers and stylists are the mafia of the service industry.

Tax evasion, protection rackets, under the table deals. You are definitely not incorrect
