What is the razor cut like? I am trying to find a place that can do a decent job on my hair, I'm tired of shitty haircuts. I was wondering if the razor was an option. Also, what do you tip a barber?

You don't tip the owner. I tip $10 on a $30 haircut.

Stylish haircuts with bangs are the perfect choice if you want a quick hair changes, but still keep the length of your hair and your face shape hairstyle.The approach to add a bit of a critical point want to consider, before you set your mind for a new hairstyle.

That's not normal is it? I just tip 20% because I thought that was standard for pretty much all tipping. So $5 on my $25 haircut.

I guess not, but on a $30 cut, $10 on top still makes for an affordable experience, plus you get to compensate someone who stands on their feet all day and stoops.

Never quite understand the whole tipping culture of North America. I only tip anyone for outstanding service beyond what is expected. I'm sure if you just shop around and try a few different places you'll find a place that'll cut your hair the way you like it.

You really ought to find a reputable stylist to initially style your hair and find what works for your face. I wouldn't let a "barber" or any other guy in general cut your hair, usually a girl or a queer is the way to go. Like with any occupation, a lot of those in it suck, some are okay, and some are great. Since you're on a style forum it is in your interest to find someone who's great. Even if it costs over $20...
