This is a quote from Garren:
Owners like me reap the rewards of the whole business, so the best way to show your appreciation is to keep coming back and to recommend our salon's services to other people. I absolutely do not accept tips when given personally (and I do not expect -- or want -- clients to leave something at the front desk, either.) If you feel you should do something, a thank-you note is always welcome, and around the holidays, a bottle of champagne is a nice gesture. Any other stylist or colorist in a salon should be tipped 20 percent. And don't forget to give five or ten dollars to the shampooer.
*Garren is the owner of the Garren New York salon at the Sherry-Netherland Hotel in New York City.
My Ex owned a hair salon, because he received "rent' from the other stylist and owned the business he too would rather you take care of the other staff members.
Truly it is up to you in the end.
