VintageGirl1020 :  I typically tip 20% for hair, lashes, or nails. I’ll tip more if they throw something extra in for free, like don’t charge me for olaplex or something like that, otherwise just standard 20%.

Typically 20% I don’t see the same stylist every time I go in so I never give a birthday or holiday gift.

Generally 20%, I sometimes round up. I’ve been seeing the same stylist for years and have no idea when her birthday is!

20%. Custom says that you don’t tip salon owners, though I do anyway.

Nothing,  because l live in Australia and we don’t formally do tipping, though you might give an apprentice something.  Or leave something at a restaurant if you really loved it. I am so grateful not to have to think about it.

VintageGirl1020 :  I typically do 25%ish for hair and nails, I see the same people over and over though.

I think that is a very fair tip. I’m a former stylist, 20% was always the norm for me to receive. The best tip is a clients loyalty, so the fact that you’re consistent about seeing your stylist AND remember her birthday.. that’s very kind!

20% and then at Christmas, I give her an extra $100

VintageGirl1020 :  I do 20% too, but I don’t have a set stylist that I love. I used to have a favorite guy and then I moved – I always gave him 20-25% depending on what I was getting done.

Usually 20%.

Off topic, but I really wish tipping weren’t an expected practice. 
If the service costs $100 but I am expected to part with $120, why not list the price as $120?!

Maybe I’m a cheapwad but 20% seems high. My bill is usually $200-250 so if I gave that percentage I’d be looking at like $240/300 every 6 weeks…yeah no lol. 

I usually give a $10 in cash.
