usually 15-20% of whatever the service is. 20% is more common in my area. 

So I would say 10 for the 50 dollar updo and 5 for the 20 dollar makeup.

MmeSilverBullet:  Yes it matters. You tip 20% for a beauty service. Your stylist does not keep anywhere near 100% of what they charge. Likely, closer to 10% is what they take home before taxes. So yes, it does matter. You’re receiving a service so you need to tip the person performing that service.
