How much is your tip at your Hair Salon.

Tipping is a custom that allows you to express appreciation for a job well done. But when it comes to salon, spa, and nail services, it can be hard to decide who and how much to tip — especially on a color job gone wrong. And while tipping is at your discretion, here are a few suggestions on amounts to give in a variety of circumstances. See the guidelines when you read more.

For your hairstylist, colorist, aesthetician, massage therapist, nail tech, or any other main service provider.
The standard tip is 15 to 20 percent of the bill before taxes.

For more complicated services (like corrective color) or if your beauty professional went above and beyond.
Think about tipping more than 20 percent as an added gesture.

You didn’t really like your service or your results.
Instead of forgoing tipping altogether, consider tipping as a courtesy, but less: 10 percent, for instance. Talk with the manager or owner, though: they don’t want you to leave dissatisfied and will likely even offer a redo. Of course, if your experience is completely awful (fried hair, botched nails, etc.), no tip is necessary.

Tipping on a complimentary redo.
If an effort is made to correct or improve upon your service, tip 15 to 20 percent of what the total would have been. But still speak up if you’re not satisfied, or consider taking your business elsewhere if your expectations aren’t being met.

If you get a complimentary bang trim.
Tip about 10 percent of the price of your regular haircut, or around $5 to $10 dollars.

If a shampoo person washes your hair.
A $2 to $5 tip is standard, but consider going on the higher end (or adding more) for especially detailed shampooing or if additional services (hand massage, deep conditioner, toner application, etc.) are provided.
