I would still tip her a little bit. I mean, not a huge amount, but I always tip my friend when I go to her salon and get my hair done even though it’s “free.”

Did she serve you dinner or anything at the wedding? If not, then you’re less obligated to…

I don’t think you have an obligation to tip her, but I guess I’m just used to it and have a friend who is a hairdresser I feel bad not tipping her haha. Although I haven’t done much to pay her back besides occasional dinners.

That’s a bit rude she didn’t tip you, but I’d probably either give her a small gift or take her out to dinner as thanks for her services.

@MrsMcGyro: I agree with this.  I think it might be a bit awkward to tip her money since you were exchanging services, but a gift card for starbucks or an inexpensive bottle of wine, or something like that would be nice.


How much would those services usually cost you?

I would say, ask your girls to tip her a few bucks or something, since your BMs should have cash on hand just in case anyway, and that should be good.

I work as an esthetician and barter with people for services all the time.  I can say I would not expect a tip. I would imagine she didn’t tip you because she figured you were swapping your services – and that was the point of doing such – to save cash.

Unless you feel this was an uneven trade, but that probably should have been discussed beforehand.


ETA – I agree with Miss Snowball that your girls could offer a few bucks. I would probably not accept it since we had a prearranged agreement, but that’s just me.  🙂
