To tip or not to tip

I got my hair permed last week and tipped the girl - wasn't happy though. Called and she agreed to a deep conditioning and a trim today to help remedy the hair disaster. She's doing this free of charge... should I tip her again???

  • I wouldn't.... you have to back for her to fix the mistake she made in the first place

  • Are you planning on ever going back to her again? If so then I would tip, if not then I would not tip.

  • Only if you get your hair fixed to your satisfaction. I don't tip if I don't get what I want to begin with though.

  • what wasn't satisfying about it? do you always get a perm, or was this a new thing to try with your hair? i have done things to my hair and it didn't turn out, due to no fault of the stylist....some hair just can't do some things. mine would never hold a perm. and that isn't the stylists fault. but if you plan to return to her i would still tip her i guess.

  • Depends how do you feel about it if you are like me I'd probably give 2 dollars just to let her know hey I am ok with it now and i will come back to you if I want. thanks anyway.

    I remember about 2 yrs ago something like this happened to me I liked my new look in the salon and gave her a $10.00 dollar tip paid and left being out all day thinking I looked nice I hadn't noticed earlier but I still had dye on my sides of my face and on my forehead I was like that witch I can not believe she did not clean me very well I trusted her...I really did not like my look after all and never went back. I had went to two other places to run errands and I am sure people noticed and here I thought they were admiring my hair....lolololol.
