I am so confused on tipping various acts of service.

One in particular is my hairdresser. I am very generous usually 20-25% tip.

BUT.. she owns the place and I read somewhere that you usually don't tip the owner because they are the ones to set the prices to begin with.

Any input?

You arent required to tip the owner since she gets a portion of all the other stylists' tips/fees (if what I recall is correct).

Personally 20-25% is extremely generous. I tend to be a lot more ummm...frugal with my tipping, generally adding approximately 10% and maxing out at around 15%. On a very well done $35 haircut, I'll tip around $5 extra.

I edit often for clarity/typos.

My Stylist is an Independent. She leases booth space at a salon. She sets her prices not the salon owner.

Her prices are high, even for a beach front community in San Diego - so I generally tip her $50, even when my services total means that's less than 20%.

Most often, my services are in the $200 range. If I'm having a full weave of hi-lites, low-lites, cut and Brazillian; along with purchasing products- sometimes my bill can reach $500. I still tip $50.

It all balances out to ~20% give or take. I've been her customer for over 10 years.

My gal rents her booth and sets her prices as well. She charges me $35 for a cut. I give her $5. That's fair, IMO.

I tip 20%. That's what I've always heard for hair/nails/waxing.

ETA: I usually also tip the wash person $2 flat. $3 if they give me a scalp massage.

My usual tip is more time based than price based, about $5 per half hour. I've tipped that way at cheap places and they've been quite surprised, but it does tend to work out to 15-25% with a higher priced stylist. I also tip if they rent a chair or the salon. I figure they can price what their experience, supplies and expenses are worth, that shouldn't change my appreciation for their time.

Me too.

I am a no frills gal, cheap haircuts, don't color anymore so it costs me 20 bucks for a haircut...but I get it washed,cut, dried and styled so I usually give her 10 bucks.

I tip 10 bucks for my mani too. It's only 25 bucks, but they take off my old polish and they always put on 3 coats.

I tip more based on what they are doing for me vs the price they have set.

I used to spend 250 a month on my hair and tipped the 20% then.

Thanks for your imput. I think I will continue tipping but scale it down a little. I've been going to her since we've moved here 4 years ago and she has listened to all my sob stories about WH, so I guess she is less expensive than my IC! lol.

I have my hair colored and cutabout every 6-7 weeks. She charges $55 and I give her $67. So that's a little over 20%.

Now that I'm reading what people here spend... I don't feel so bad about my haircolor/cut expenses!! I'm getting off cheap apparently

My hairdresser owns her salon. She has two other stylists, no other employees. She's been cutting and coloring my hair for eight years.

I tip $10 every time, regardless of the cost (cut = $40, I give her $50. Cut and Color = $100, I give her $110). I also give her a gift card to her favorite organic grocery at the holidays -- depending on how much $ we've been spending on my son's med care, that can be anywhere from a $25 to $100 gift card.
