salon tipping

I think there was a thread on this at one point but i could not find it?

What is the correct amount to tip for a hair cut? Is it a percentage of the total? Or is it per service like so much for haircut, so much for color etc. Or is it by how much time the stylist spends on you (so much per hour)

Please help as i am going to get a hair cut tomorrow and have yet to figure this out.

TIA!

    I thought standard everywhere was 20%...????
    Hair Type: 2B/3A hybrid, I believe. Had it short for about 5 years, and have since let it grow. Layers have brought out the curl...and I haven't gone 'straight' since!

    Standard tip is 15%. Good tip is 20%. I typically tip between the two (or even a bit higher), depending on what's easier based on the cash I have on hand.

    And just to complicate matters -- do you guys tip when the owner of the salon is the one cutting your hair?

    I really feel like I just stepped outta' the trailer!
    lmao

    I've never tipped a stylist and don't believe I've ever seen my mom do so either.
    Thinks maybe this is 'cause we come from a very small town and it just wasn't necessary.

    I just feel like a complete A-Hole!! lol
    so, don't feel bad. Evidently I have no idea how much to tip, either!:wink:
    "Is your hair natural?"- You don't honestly think I'd do this on purpose, do you?

    I think you're not supposed to, but I don't ever know who owns what, so I've never done this.

    I tip the standard 20% for great service [which is most of the time] and 15% for average.

    I think it is less common to tip in very small towns. Now you know. :)

    Me too ... but I also have a stylist that I'm thrilled with. The one who wrecked my hair didn't get 20% .... I'm embarassed to say that I did tip her though. :disgust:
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    I tip 15%. I go to the "Mothership" in NYC and that expensive enough! For the services that I am going to get done, I am going to have to tip close to $60 dollars! :shock:
    I know it's a lot, but it's so worth it to me!
    Thanks goodness, I only get this done once a year or so!
