I’d say no. I’m in the same situation with my hair/makeup person. Since she’s the “company” all the money goes to her. So no tip needed

I tipped at my trial too, and my MUA/hairstylist is the owner of the company (with several employees, but she’s the one who’ll be at the wedding), so I’m not sure either.  I think I’ll probably tip her because she is fantastic and wonderful, and I want to show my appreciation.  But I’ve heard you shouldn’t tip if they’re the owner also.  It just feels wrong to me, though, to not tip!

I always tip. Even if they are the owner, they use the money you’re giving them to buy more supplies and putting money back into the business. So every dollar isn’t necessarily going into their pocket. Aside from paying for both my hair stylist and my MUA’s parking the day of, I’m also tipping both 20%.
