I tip my hairdresser 20%. I used to just get my hair highlighted, but I have recently begun to get my hair colored. With getting my hair colored, I have been purchasing products at the salon. I usually ask my stylist what the service cost so I know what to tip. I figure I don't want to tip on $50 of product as well as the over $100 of service. My stylist has never given me any indication that this was not acceptable. This past week, my stylist was running behind and passed me off to another stylist to ring me up at the register. I heard my stylist tell the other girl to "let her know what her service cost, she doesn't tip on products purchased".
I was floored. I never thought it would be expected to tip on products. I mean, really, if I am already tipping her 20% on her service, why would I add another $10 tip for buying the product!!
Am I wrong? Did I do something wrong in not tipping on product?
