I NEVER know what to tip… I’m going to get my hair done today and I really dont know whats appropriate. To make matters more complicated, it’s my brothers girlfriend (of about a year) who is doing it in the salon where she works.
$15? $20? More? %?

It’s like tipping a waitress. 18% seems standard for good service, although I round up to 20.

I think my lady charges me something like 15-20 bucks and I usually tip her five bucks because she does an AMAZING job and exactly what I want every time the first time. But I only get it cut and styled, no coloring or perming.

My stylist is amazing so I typically tip 20% as she goes out of her way to accomodate me and my crazy thick hair.
That being said the normal is 15% although tipping isn’t required if the cut/color/styling is terrible. It is all dependent on your satisfaction.

We either get paid commission or booth rent. So tips are essential to our survival lol.
I always tip AT LEAST $10 but the girl that does my hair is one of my good friends and does an amazing job.
Most clients will leave a min of $5.00
I say 15-20% is common. It also depends on how satisfied you are. If your cut and color are terrible (and I dont mean you DONT like it; you should give a stylist a few tries to get it right. I just mean like it turned out a disaster- color is REALLY messed up…. or you have a whack job haircut etc…. then I wouldnt leave a tip! lol )

I tip 20% typically, maybe a little more. I haven’t gotten highlights in a while though. A few weeks ago I got a cut and demi-permanent dye and tipped about 25%.

My last hair appt I tipped 11% I did this because I think the whole thing was way overpriced. This is partially my fault because I should have asked about pricing prior, but I just didn’t think a simple haircut, and six foils would cost as much as it did.

Hair cuts are expensive now! I give whatever i feel is best. But it depends if they rent a booth or if they own the place. I try to give more if they rent.
But i never know if i am giving the right amount. I dont always want to be forced to spend $200 on my hair!

Always 20%. Mine went out on her own so she is more affordable now- it is 40 for a wet cut and 40 for partial foils, so I tip $16 on top of that.

I tip 20 percent of the total cost of all services (cut, color touch-up, highlights/lowlights, brow waxing, etc.)

I tip 15-20%. Usually it’s on the higher side but it definitely depends on quality of service, just like anything else (:

I tip 20% at minimum for any service, 23 or 24% if they did a especially good job. I don’t tip at all though if I’m not satisfied with the work.
