@leedobler: Because it is a service i would recommend it.

I literally just came on the boards to ask the same question! 🙂 I have my trial this weekend and am wondering if I should tip… if anyone else has any thoughts I’d love to hear ’em! Mine are also not part of a salon so I’m wondering how that affects things.

I would say no tip, since they’re trying to display their talent to you during the trial and you’ll be tipping day of.

Yes, definitely tip. Make-up and hair people expect tips. I researched this too and got it confirmed on several sites.

I would definitely tip them. Regardless if they are coming to your house or not, they are providing you a service

You did the right thing! You should always tip for hair and make up because it is a service.

My sister is a practicing cosmetologist and when I asked about this she told me that a small tip (doesn’t have to be huge!) is always appreciated…it will make the person more willing to go the extra mile for you.

 

Also, most people in the business get all of what you pay them for anyways. In a lot of salons, they get 100% of what you pay them, and they pay rent for their station. Obviously, some work on commission (they give the owner a percentage of their earned money), but that is mostly seen in lower class places or for new employees.
