  • if it's in her house-she is getting the money-rather than being in a shop where she doesn't

  • My understanding is that you do not tip the owner of the her case, she is doing it at home so she's the 'owner of the salon'. She is not paying anyone for a space, she is keeping all of the money for herself.

  • Yup to all the pp's. If its someone who you're friends w/ & she cuts your hair regularly then do something nice for her, gift certificate @ Xmas type thing. Just once a year to let her know you appreciate her good work on your hair. Make sure she knows how much you appreciate her cutting your hair & doing a great job.

  • I would still leave a tip especially if it's a friend. Even if it was a small tip im sure she would appreciate it.
