    Default tips for hair stylist?


    What would be an appropriate gratuity for a hair stylist? I am referring to a stylist who works at a full service salon, not someboey who works at Supercut or a "chop" shop.

    thanks in advance for your info,

    It really depends.
    How well do you know your stylist, how much time he personally spends on you, how well you like the job, etc...

    I have a friend who's a stylist and the gratuity from his clients range from $10 to $100... a simple blowdry is not the same as hair extensions.

    I tip my stylist $10 for haircuts, $20 when its cut and color, $40 when its close to Christmas.

    Basically I try to keep it close to 20% of the cost of the service, except for the Christmas one which is of course just a little extra since I love the holidays and feel more generous that time of year than any other.

    I'll agree with Kevin. I finally, I think, found a stylist that I truly like and does a good job on me (this after trying 8 to 10 different ones over the past few years). Too many feel like they rush you out the door and do a halfassed job. If it's a haircut, I tip around $10 to $15. If I'm getting it straightened like I have to every 3 or 4 months, then it's around $20 to $30. Depending on how much I enjoy the conversation that day
