Survey shows tipping on the decline

0

Research into the UK’s tipping culture has shown a drop in tipping in the hair and beauty industry. British marketplace OnBuy.com surveyed over 2000 participants, with 73% stating that they tip at the hairdressers, yet research by the National Hairdressers’ Federation shows that 47% of members have experienced a drop in the number of tips left by clients.

OnBuy.com’s figures show that:

  • 24% of Brits would feel ashamed if they did not leave a tip for workers
  • 73% of participants stated that they tip at the hairdressers
  • 47% of beauty workers have experienced a drop in the number of tips left by clients
  • 38% of respondents do not tip after a trip to a beauty salon
  • 88% of Brits always tip waiting staff
  • Taxis are tipped 77% of the time, compared to Uber drivers at only 19%
  • 24% of Brits would feel ashamed if they did not leave a tip for workers
  •  21% of Brits would still tip at a restaurant even if the service was poor.

Since 2009, tipping has not been allowed to make up national minimum wage pay, but some 165,000 UK businesses still enjoy British tipping culture.
