How Much to Tip Hairdressers, According to Hairstylists Themselves 

The hair salon gives you a color, cut, and blow-out, and you look lovely and fierce, but you freeze at the checkout. You suddenly realize you don't know who to tip or how much.

You should tip your hairstylist, but what about the person who cleaned or dried your hair while your stylist trimmed someone else's? If you used a discount, how much do you tip? So many queries. How to tip a hairdresser and other salon staff is explained here.

Tipping your hairstylist is polite, but you should also feel good about it. "Remember that the word 'gratuity' comes from 'gratitude,'" adds Post. "Think of tipping less as an obligation and more of a way of being thankful for someone who is pampering you and making you look and feel your best."

Why Always Tip

Daniel Post Senning, Emily Post Institute spokesperson, advises tipping hairstylists 20%. "Remember that just like servers in restaurants, hairdressers depend on tips as part of their income," explains. Holidays are the sole exception: As a bonus, tip your hairdresser 10% more during the holidays.

Exactly What to Tip Your Hairdresser

What should you tip your colorist or hairdresser, who gave you that great scalp massage? Remember: "You should tip 20% on the entire service cost, not per individual," advises Schweitzer.

Shampoo, color, and blowout tip amounts

For tip calculation and distribution, Post recommends contacting the front desk operator. "When you have three separate people helping you, it can be confusing to monitor their names and what they should be tipped, so defer to the front desk or manager to help you distribute your tips or explain the system this particular salon uses," says. Tip envelopes should be modest. 

What to Do Without Knowing Who Helped You

Ask the front desk employee to verify your service cost if you used a coupon or Groupon. "Tip 20% on the true total cost of the service, not the discounted cost," Schweitzer adds. "The hairdresser did the same amount of work, so they deserve the same amount of tip."

Tips for Using Coupons or Discounts

Post believes that most small company owners don't expect tips, and if the owner is in the salon but didn't cut your hair, there's no reason to tip. However, they'd enjoy your hair work. In doubt, say up.

Should Salon Owners Be Tiped?

The only time not to tip is when buying. Schwarz warns, "If you decide to buy some styling products or shampoo, don't let the receptionist add that to your final bill," because salon supplies are expensive and can raise your bill. Instead, have her ring them up separately to avoid confusion about tip for your services.
