I very recently began coloring my hair. This last time i went to get it done, it was much more expensive than my old stylist (who was more a friend of a friend working out of her basement kind-a thing). With a $120 bill, I was confused on how much to tip her. Before I colored my hair, a haircut was only about a $30 deal, so to hand over five bucks as a tip seemed fair. It’s over 15%, but would continuing with that percentage be acceptable for the amount I’m paying now? I am going in for another cut and color soon, and I don’t want to be a bad tipper! Any suggestions?

As a person who has worked in many salons..hair can be very expensive! But keep in mind the salon makes most of the money not the stylist! A lot of stylist live off their tips. I would say 15%!

I adore my stylist. He highlighted my hair and styled it3 for the wedding for free! Of course I gave him a nice tip! I always tip him at least 20%, often more. But he’s always doing extra things for me, like giving me lots of samples, extra styling, etc.

I always give atleast 20% …my hair takes a long time (highlights, coloring, conditioning, etc)

Dang. Having pretty hair is not cheap!! Good to know that a stylist is really depending on the tips though. I’ll keep that in mind!

I always give 20% or more. I have a great stylist and have been going to her for almost 10 years. She is worth every penny and when you start to build a relationship most of them don’t charge full price anymore at least mine doesn’t so yes tip well and when you find one you like keep going back. It will start to come back to you.

My cut and color is $80 and I tip $20, so that’s a bit over 20%.

My haircuts are $50, $70 if I get a blowout. I always tip my stylist $10 and tip the girl who washes my hair $5.
