How Much To Tip Your Hairstylist

This is an intriguing question regarding tipping. How do you decide if 15, 20, or 25 percent is the correct amount. Are you suppose to tip the owner? What if multiple assistants helped with your blowout or shampoo? How do you know where the tip is going to? Proper tipping etiquette at the salon isn't the same as tipping at a restaurant, bartender, massage therapist, or your uber driver. The cardinal tipping rule for salons is 20% but other factors could determine a lesser or greater amount. On an average 15-20% is the norm. Be your own judge based on the quality of service, expectations, professionalism, flexibility, length of relationship, number of associates involved, salon's geographic location. Most important, Ask questions to better understand their compensation process.
