    Just had a thought -- does DS pay/tip the barber in cash when he gets his "Welcome to USAFA" haircut?? Or does it get tacked on to the bill along with his uniforms, etc. I want him to be prepared with the proper $$ in hand if he needs it.

    He will not need any money. All of the barber fees are included in the deductions that he will have taken from his pay each month.

    I usually tipped a couple bucks when I got my haircut during the ac year, but that's definitely not an expectation for basic cuts.

    There is absolutely zero need to tip any of the barbers.
    Even though I usually got a haircut off-base, the barber service was still deducted from my pay.

    Did they tell you to tip the barber? NO! So don't (at least on I-day).

    "Don't need no stinken hair cut". The night before, simply shampoo your hair with "Nair". Then you won't need a haircut. Hee Hee.

    Do females have money deducted for hair cuts? I mean if they do, itll be nice to get the ends trimmed regularly.

    Some prefer getting their hair cut right before I-day... prevents an itchy back/neck during the remainder of in-processing.
