giving tips at the hair salon

I tried out a new hair salon yesterday. It was more upscale than I had heard and one girl washed my hair before another girl cut and styled it. I know I am supposed to tip both girls, but what is the usual tip for the girl who washed my hair?  I'm wondering because where I usually go the stylist does both the shampoo and the cut.  Total came to $45 for wash, cut, style. Thanks ladies!

  • I use to be a shampoo girl when I was a teenager. I normally got between $1-3. Here is a list of "suggested" tips which says $2.
