When you get your hair cut, colored, blown-out & shampooed, how much to tip? And what if there are several different people involved from assistants to the main stylist? You are expected to tip 15-20 percent to the stylist & $5 to each individual who shampoos and/or blows out your hair. The same rule applies to your manicurist, your aesthetician & anyone who spends time making you look beautiful (at a cost). They get 15-20 percent as well.
