Can you mail her a card to say thanks with a gift card inside? Maybe something like Starbucks that you can determine the amount and is generally something everyone can use? Just write a quick note mentioning how much you loved her work and can’t wait for her to do it on the big day!

I agree with PP, I would send a card thanking her for all her hard work. Tell her that in all the excitment, you totally forgot to send a tip & you have included it for her.  And I’d give her a few more bucks than you would have originally.

I’m sure she will appreciate it.

If she works at a salon, I might even drive by and give her the tip, and she’ll completely understand that in the excitement you forgot to do it!

I”ve done this before- I have gone back and given them the tip with a little extra on top.  I”m sure she will understand.

I think going in person might be better. I’m sure she can understand that in the moment you just plain forgot, but wanted to make sure that you came as soon as you remembered and how you can’t wait to have her do your hair and makeup on your wedding day

I’d have to go in with the tip and apologize, or send a note with a check.

Go in and hand it to her, saying you completely forgot b/c you were so excited about the hair and makeup and you are SO sorry!

If she’s busy, leave a nice hand-written note at the front desk. I know the salon i got to has little envelopes that go to the stylists.

I would go in there and just give her a little card with an extra generous tip in it. And just say how silly you feel for forgetting to tip and how it must be the wedding brain or something, and tell her you hope this makes up for it!

Plus I’m sure by doing that you’ll def. stick out in her mind when you go in for the big day! And you don’t want to wait till after you go back cause she’ll probably remember you didn’t tip her the first time, and not know that you didn’t on accident.

I agree with the PP, go back to the salon and hand her the tip and just let her know that your mind was on how awesome your hair and makeup turned out and you compltely forgot. It would go a long way with her.

I think that a thank you card with a Starbucks gift card is a really class way of doing it. Maybe put $10 on there or something so that you really compensate for not tipping right way.  Personally, I’d feel awkward going back and handing her cash, but maybe that’s just me.

I would also feel awkward just handing her a tip. I would give her a card with a giftcard in it. Who doesn’t like giftcards. You can either mail it or hand deliver it

better late than never.  i’m sure something would be appreciated and she’ll totally understand how excited you were.  i would specifically mention you were so excited because it was so fabulous.  compliment and a tip–how could she be angry? 🙂

It happens to the best of us. Apologize, give her the tip she deserves, and all will be well.

P.S. How did your trial go???
