Ever wondered how much to tip your hairstylist? In this web story, hairstylists themselves share their insights on tipping etiquette.
Learn the basics of tipping. Most hairstylists suggest tipping between 15% to 20% of the total cost of your service.
Consider the Service
Consider the quality of service. If your hairstylist goes above and beyond, it's appropriate to tip at the higher end.
Cash Is King
Cash tips are preferred by many hairstylists as they are immediate and don't rely on credit card processing.
Check the salon's policies on tipping. Some salons have a pooled tip system, so be sure to ask how tips are distributed.
Ask for Recommendations
Don't hesitate to ask your hairstylist for their tipping recommendation; they appreciate the gesture.
For additional services like a shampoo, blowout, or styling tips, consider tipping separately.
If you're a regular client, showing loyalty can lead to better service and appreciation from your hairstylist.
During the holidays, consider giving a larger tip as a token of appreciation.
DIY vs. Professional
If you opt for DIY haircare, you can still tip your stylist for their previous services.
