@TheFutureMrsRhys: I’m probably not the best to comment on this (my sister will be handling my make up), but maybe if I comment someone with better ideas will chime in too.

I think that tipping is for above and beyond service, or in situations where tips are paying people’s slalary (like at a lot of reasturants). Why would you give someone extra money for doing what you already paid them a generous amount to do? Maybe someone else knows why, but that’s my take on it, sorry if I sound horrible! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with tipping, I just don’t think it’s necessary in all cases.

Personally, I wouldn’t tip the business owner, but I would tip the assistants. Hair and makeup are traditional “tipping” industries, so they will probably be expecting it. However, it doesn’t need to be 20% of the full services. Wedding prices are ridic, so tipping based on them would be crazy (and too much). Depending on how good the assistants are, maybe tip them $10-15 per person that they do.

I do believe that tips are generally expected for hair/makeup especially when they are coming to your house. If you don’t want to give much, then don’t, but I think at least a tiny bit would be expected.
