if I were you, I’d stop worrying so much. just make sure you tip next time you go 🙂 it’s better if you tip in cash too.

I would probably go in there and leave it for her. I’m sure you’re not the first person who didn’t remember!

Can you call up the Salon or go back over and tip her? Im sure she would really appreciate it!

I would go back to the salon with an envelope of cash, apologize in a light way, and tip your stylist. 

Someone did this to me when I was working in a restaurant, and I spent the next 24 hours wondering what I’d done wrong. He came back the next day & tipped me generously…I felt much better! And I thought he was really sweet to come back, since some people would just write it off.

I would write her a little card and just say “So sorry I didn’t include this the other day, I was in a rush and I completely forgot somehow!!”, include the money and leave it sealed up at the front reception for her 🙂

I’m exactly like you!  I always tip well and I’d be worried, too.  What I would do is go by there in person and give her the tip.  I know it seems extreme to some, but I completely understand how you feel.  If it were me it would drive me nuts until I got the tip to her.

I’d go back in as others said and leave the tip! She will surely understand…things come up and people forget sometimes!

I’ve gone back the next day and tipped, I had a debit card and they couldn’t run tips on a card for some reason, so I just went back. They understood!

I would tip her for last time before you go back! I wouldn’t put my hair in someone’s hands who I didn’t tip.

I work in the salon industry. Typically, we get lots of forgotten tips or what not so genearlly the next time you come in – just write a small note saying the tip was for this time and last visit! Usually we don’t even know or remember.

I generally tend to keep thinking about these sorts of things until they’re rectified, so I’d probably just run over and drop off the tip in an envelope for her.
