strange question , but what do you tip a hairdresser who cuts your hair? wash, cut, style
it has been so long since i have had my hair done, i usually cut it myself but need a change.
i did a bit more google-ing, 20% is customary. good to know. I know when i was a server, i waited on 20+ tables by myself-not that that was optimum, just what it was. that was hard work. and we only got paid 2.13 an hour. i loved it at the time but could not go back to being on my feet from 8-12 hours a day now.
As a hairstylist, I have never worked for less than 50% commission. Tipping a hairstylist is the same as you would tip a waiter/waitress. Average tip I receive is about 20% of the services.
Keep in mind that many salons have salon assistants, so tip the person who shampoos your hair too if it is someone different from the stylists. Typical tip for a shampoo person is $2-3.
If the owner charges more than the other stylists in the salon, you aren't suppose to tip them. If they charge the same price as the other stylists, it is okay to tip them.
