Please Please Please tip your hairstylist. She is taking time out of her booked saturday  to be there with you on your wedding day. If she is only charging you 85 a person and is there multiple hours by the time she gets back to work (depending on the number of people she is doing) she could have missed a lot of her work day where she potentially could have been double booked and making more money. Make it worth her time!

Thank you ladies for tipiping 20%!

Just a side note: most hairstylist only make 50% or less of what they are charging you. plus if you are getting a color we get a pretty hefty color charge 🙁

This also depends… if it’s your stylist from your hair salon, then yes. But if it’s someone whose sole job is as a hair stylist traveling around for weddings (like mine is), then not necessarily, because all the money you give is going straight in their pocket… they don’t have to pay any of it to a salon, because they are the business owners. So in that case, you wouldn’t have to tip, but of course always could if they went above and beyond.

@hotchocolate: yes but if you think they are worth it you are paying it and its a tipping industry. If the owner of the restaurant waited on your table would you not tip him because its his restaurant? He still serviced you.

I’d tip 15-20% if it’s a salon worker, but not if it’s a straight business owner who does this as their job. But, in that situation, if they’re fabulous, then maybe give them a little something.

ALWAYS tip the hairstylist….especially if they’re coming to you!

Now….I have a girl who does my hair, she OWNS the business so she does not accept tips

As a New Yorker I always tip but if you are the owner and you set the price…mine is charging me more for coming to my house, I don’t tip.

You definitely have to tip her. Also, she is coming to you and doing you a favor so I would probably give 30% instead of the usual 20% for that reason. I’d say $85 is average for an updo in the city.
