Generally, when you think about tipping, waitresses, bartenders and even luggage carriers come to mind, but do you think to tip your hair stylist? It’s a small gesture that many people do not consider.
Countless hair salons employ hair stylists who are paid an hourly fee or a percentage for their services. If your hair style costs you $200, your hairstylist may only see 40% of that. Tipping your hairstylist is as imperative as tipping your server.
So how much exactly should one tip their hairstylist? 10%- 20% would be ideal. Some tip even higher during the holiday season.
So the next time you get your hair “did”, be sure to leave a tip! Your stylist will be very grateful. J
