A service is being provided to you so you should definitely tip. I know the rule of thumb is if the person owns the business you don’t tip them, but I still do.

I don’t think I would tip for a hair trial-especially with how much they jack up the prices since you’re a bride.

I plan to, unless it goes horrifically bad. I tip on services I plan to use again.

I only did my hair trial 2 weeks out, and I didn’t have to pay. She included the trial into doing my hair for the wedding day, so I just tipped on that.


Funny story though, the day of the wedding, I was writing out the check and handed it to her….I had completely left off the tip! Luckily I realized it pretty quickly and got them a new one, but boy, would they have hated me!

Whenever you are unsure if the situation calls for tipping or not, you should tip. Just because you are not paying, doesnt mean you dont have to tip. The hairdresser if giving you the same time and service she would if you had to pay. She gets paid in tips, so if you dont tip, she doesnt get paid.
