You generally don’t tip the owner of a business.

@hollyberry4:  Although @abbylyn: technically is correct, this seems to be changing in the salon world.  I think the fact that you regularly have been tipping your stylist for services provided at the salon suggests that you should tip her at least that percentage when she travels to perform the services for your wedding. This is especially true since she is bringing an assistant, who also will need to be tipped.

@hollyberry4:  It IS possible that the tip for the assistant is already IN her rate, and that could be the case for the owner as well.  What I would do is contact the owner and ask her if the assistant’s tip is already included in the total price you were given. If she says yes, then you won’t need to worry about anything extra for her.  That also may open the door for you to ask about whether this is the case for the owner as well.
