Who are we supposed to tip?

Ali de Bold

The plumber, the house cleaner, someone who comes in for repairs... and how much? My girlfriends and I got into a big discussion about this because frankly, we're confused. I'm thinking about doing a poll about this to find out what you guys think about who we should be tipping and how much.

We use to think tipping went to just hair stylists, restaurants, food delivery, etc.. now it's customary to tip the hostess at a restaurant, or the girl at the shampoo bar at the salon. How much do you tip them??

I've been wondering that all along...

You know what, I would also really like to know the answer to this question.

I think we are supposed to tip the girl at the shampoo bar... I do but I am always at a loss as to how much? Any ideas? I feel bad now, I have never even thought to tip a hostess... oops!

For the shampoo girl. This hostess tip is a surprise to me. I've never heard of that. I think it's customary for servers to share a portion of their tips with the hostess and kitchen staff but I could be wrong.

What about the cleaning lady?

Do you tip someone who cleans your house (not a full time maid) just someone who comes in once in a while?
