  • for that I personally would tip $10 *IF* i was offered a drink or magazine during the waiting part, it turned out nice, there was decent small talk, ect.

    none of the above, $5

    if it was a hot mess, no tip

  • I tip 20% so it would be $10

  • 20% min. So at LEAST 10 dollars.

  • Tipping is customary in hair salons in North America (not in Australia or NZ, but they get paid WAY more than here)... usually it's 10%. So $5.

  • I know 15% when you go out to eat. I would think the same for your hair.

  • idk how long that is supposed to take
    if thats really long and I felt like the beautician was very irresponsible I wouldnt tip
    If they were just busy but my hair looks good I would tip
    I usually tip between 15 and 20% off the total bill
    for 50
    thats an 8-10 dollar tip
