Customer Leaves $5,800 Tip After Much-Needed Haircut [VIDEO]
Unless you're brave enough to do it at home, we all need haircuts. Hairstylists (including this Owosso barber who went back to work against Governor Whitmer's Executive Order) are anxious to get back to work.
One stylist in Denver is especially grateful for one customer who left a ridiculously generous tip after his much-needed haircut on Saturday (5/9).

Monica Alcon stayed a few extra minutes after her shift ended. Looking back, she's glad she did. Alcon was able to squeeze in the last-minute customer and he was grateful. After his cut, the man tipped her $2,500.
"When the receipt came out, I was like, 'Whoa!' I was like, 'Are you sure?' He said, 'Yeah, that's right,'" Alcon said.
Later that day, the man returned to Floyd's 99 Barbershop and tipped employees an additional $3,300. That's a total of $5,800 -- a 9,200% tip, if we're doing the math right.
Alcon says she nearly cried at the total stranger's generosity. Even though it goes against social distancing guidelines, Alcon gave the man a hug.
So, the bar has been set rather high. When we all flock to barbershops and salons once it's safe and legal to do so in Michigan, how much will you tip?
