How much do you tip your hairstylist? Do you also tip the hair washer?

I never know what to tip hairstylists. I've been giving about 10% to stylist and $2 to hair washer. Is it too much or not enough?

  • Mt stylist is my hair washer too, and since she is so cheap I always give her$5-$10 depending on what I have done.

  • my hairstylist is the washer too. i tip 20%. she's worth it, and being one of her best customers means i get in sooner (her wiat list is months out, and i get in the week or following week when i call), she does a fabulous job! She's in high demand, so i want to treat her just as well as she treats her clients! i think 10% to washeris fine, but definately the hair stylist should recieve more.

  • I give a 15-20% tip to my stylist, who also does my washing and coloring and waxing.

  • I had never heard of tipping the hairstylist until I read a similar question a few days back. So I never have. Of course I haven't been in a salon for nearly 10 years either... But I would think 10% is about right. As for the washer I don't know, isn't it the same lady? Every time I've ever been to a salon it's always the same person that washes that cuts... I wouldn't tip twice.

  • My husband and three son's get their hair cut... I'd be bald if I allowed them to hack at mine... Hahahah

  • I usually tip around 18%. I don't tip the hair washer just the stylist. I think it's the stylists job to take care of the hair washer if they don't want to do the washing.
