Always! Anyone I feel like deserves one gets one, hair, nails, massage, waxes, etc. I got a tip while working at a hotel, it was my only one (and only 5 bucks) but it was amazing! I made sure they had extra towels and linen service. Made me think that I will ALWAYS TIP!

@melisslp: same. haircut & color runs me about 100, so I usually leave a $15-$20 tip. i don’t go to anyone to do any of the other stuff though, so I can’t comment.

I tip for everything. 

Whenever I get my hair cut, I get it dyed as well so that normally costs $100. I always tip $20. 

Eyebrow waxing is $9 and I tip $5. 

Manicure/Pedicure is $20 for 1 or $35 for both. I tip $10-$12 depending on what I have done.

I always tip for any beauty service, including hair, nails, and eyebrow waxing.  I tip 20%.  I usually tip 20% for everything, not just beauty stuff.  I’ll leave 15% if I’m not pleased with the service.

Yes! I always tip 20+% for beauty treatments…more if it is something inexpensive like an eyebrow wax.

I always tip! $3-$5 for my nails (20%) and $10 for a bikini wax (typically $35, but it’s $80 for a brazilian and then i give $15), extra for hair (i go to a salon school, so it’s like $30 for highlights and i always give $10-$15) and around 15-20% for massages, too.

That lady does your lady bits–tipping is nice 🙂 Plus you don’t want her to be crabby next time she does it for you, lol!!!

I always tip for manicures, waxing etc…

I am very concious about tipping since I worked in the service industry for quite some times and relied on tips for most of my income. I also make sure and tip extra during the holidays Smile

I tip 15-25% depending on how happy I am with the service and what was done.  I don’t get my hair/nails done professionally very often (1-2x a year) so I don’t mind tipping more when I do.
