How much do you tip your nail person, or you stylist?

Cause I have no clue. I heard it's not the same if you go out to eat, so what do you tip?

  • For nails I tip 5 since I never get anything overly expensive done.

    For my hair it depends on what im getting done. So anywhere from 10-20

  • It depends on how good of a job they did. The most I have given is $15

  • dpends on what my stylist does... i base it on price.. my average hair cut, styled, blown dry, etc is 60 bucks, so i give her 12 bucks as a tip... the nails... im really into spa-pedi's and they run about 25, so i usually give 5
