Just recently moved to France and wondering what the etiquette is regards tipping your hairdresser or waiter. Would one be offended?
Thanks in advance .
I don’t tend to tip anyone.
There is usually a little bowl or box for tips by the till in hairdressers, you leave a tip for your waiter/ress on the table or the plate thing the bill came on. I am assuming you are from the USA - people doing those jobs are properly paid here, so you tip if you want to show appreciation, not because they will starve if you don’t
Thank you both for your advice I am from England. Its good to know that people are paid well for their jobs in France!
I will always leave something for the lad that washes my hair, but not much.
And I don’t tip in restaurants as an automatic thing, it’s not that expected. Put I will if the service was particularly good, probably only 5% tho’. In cafes I might leave the change on the plate, or say I don’t want any when paying the bill. But not always, depends on the coffee!
Thanks Stella, some interesting comments
