What % are you supose to tip your hairdressor?


What do you usually tip? I'm not talking about ones who run there own business but who work in a salon for someone else. Should you always tip more around christmas time?

i think its standard....

to tip 15-20%....

however, i absolutely adore my stylist so i tend to tip more than that...i also tend to tip the shampoo person as well :) since i tend to tip more every time i go to the salon, i don't generally tip more at the holidays but will bring a small gift.

I guess it depends what you're getting done but me...

Good question! I am going on saturday to get mine. The total cost for me is 50$CAD for haircut and brushing and I tip for 10$.

Too Generous

I guess I'm too generous over the holiday's - I tipped my colour stylist $10 and my hairstylist $20 - cause they are allways a joy to be around - they always treat me like I'm special when I come into the studio so I feel they deserve it. Plus we are all like family - we all know each other really well. I have been going to the same hair salon for about 7 years. I have tried other salons but something brings me back to my guys.

I have allways read that you should be generous to those who perform a service for you over the holidays.

15% is standard

It's really up to you what you tip, but 15% is pretty standard. Around the holidays I like to tip extra (as much as double what I normally would), for the people I see regularly.

Glad I'm not alone in my tipping!

Glad to hear I'm not alone - for a job well done - I like to keep people happy - especially around the holidays :)

BEST thing you can do is …

Tip well. If you want the best service (and a chance at scoring the
ideal time slot or last-minute appointment), you'll need to tip well
(20 percent is ideal). Stylists remember the customers who treat them
well, and they'll go out of their way to do the same. Also, tip with
cash whenever possible, credit card companies charge a fee for card
tips, meaning the stylist actually gets less money than you intended.

I love reading articles online! So here's more on everything you should know wen getting a new look.
