So I'm going to get my hair done today

cut/color/the works... and I've never gone to a hair salon and paid in cash, which I am today and I was wondering who I give the tip to. Do I just give it to the receptionist when I pay for the rest of the stuff and tell her "Here this is the tip" or do I give it to the hairdresser?

I've always just written the tip on a receipt lol, so I'm at a loss.

  • We usually give it to the hairdresser personally.

  • The salon I go to, the entire thing is paid to the stylist. I always tip her directly. Before I went here, I went to another place where you paid a girl up front and I still tipped the stylist.

  • Sometimes the hairdresser is the one that rings you up, if not than yes the receptionist will make sure she gets it. If you really wanted to, you could go and hand it to the stylist but the last time I went I just left it (cash) with the receptionist.

  • Give it directly to the hairdresser, I would hate for it to get lost in the mix.

  • It depends on the salon. You can always tip your sylist directly, but usually they have envelopes at the reception desk to leave a tip for them in a sealed, labeled envelope! If the salon is very busy, that may be easier.
