Rachel A. (@rxchelbabe) has about 19,000 followers on the app and often posts about her job as a waitress at a casino. One of her recent videos shows pictures of her previously brunette hair before revealing her new platinum blonde hair. Then she shows the stacks of cash she made as a blonde.
“POV you went blonde and it tripled your tips,” the video’s on-screen text says.
The video has been viewed 64,000 times. Other viewers resonated with the TikToker’s experience as a brunette (or any other hair color)-turned-blonde.
“Yes, people beg me not to but people give me so much more with blonde smh men love it,” one viewer commented on the video.
“blondes deff make more tips lol I didn’t go back to my natural color until i was done waitressing/bartending,” another viewer commented.
Other viewers want to see for themselves if they can make more money in tips as a blonde.
“Time to get a wig,” one said.
“I need me a blonde wig ASAP,” another wrote.
