If she is a really really good friend, I would get her a gift or a gift card. If she is less than that I would tip her because it is still a business transaction.

I would give her a gift as well, especially if she is a good friend like @noritake22 said.

I would consider what it would cost in a salon…If she is charging you a lot less then I would tip more than 20%….If she is charging you pretty much the same…I’d tip no less than 20%…

Since she’s charging you, you should tip. She’s treating this as a business deal & not a favor, so it’s only right to compensate her as you would if she weren’t a good friend.

I would suggest tipping 15-20% & write her a nice thank you note with the $$ tucked inside.
