Research on tipping has been limited to restaurants, tourism and taxis. This study investigates the economic and demographic factors that influence whether a person tips and the amount tipped for a haircut in a beauty salon. Using a two-step model, it is found that both economic and demographic factors influence tipping behaviour. A person is more likely to tip if he/she has long hair, attends to grooming on a frequent basis, has a lower income, and is male. Price, gender, age, and the use of appointments are factors that influence the amount that one tips.
