    I tip my hair dresser according to what I am having done. If I am getting a shampoo and set I usually tip her around thirty percent or a bit better. If I get a perm I tip her around 25 percent. I get my hair done at a large salon that caters to the masses. The stylist are not well paid and those that stay are above the norm and do well with clientel. I ensure I am going to get treated well and have my hair done and done properly to my satisfaction, thus the overly tipping.

    I don't know if there is a general percentage used for tipping hairdressers. I usually tip anywhere from 10 to 20 percent, depending on the service I got and how pleased I am with the outcome.

    If she cut your hair, I'd say 0, she did her job. If she gave you a place to stay or helped you with your work, then You can give her a small tip for extra help.

    I always tip 15% and leave the gal who shampoo's $2.

    Sometimes if I am short, the next time I over pay it all works out.

    If you aren't happy just do the 10% - and I think if its the owner they shouldn't "accept" tips

    10 to 20 % depending on what you had done and a few bucks for the shampoo girl.

    If they remember you for tipping well and I assure you they do , chances are you will come out looking and feeling fabulous every time.

    I always feel better when I tip.

    It's an extra thanks for a job well done esp. since most stylists pay a chair fee.
