My friend says 15%. I typically tip my hair stylist 10% but that's because the total bill is like $220!
First to Last
Actually, hair stylists should do as any other professional service does and charge for their service without expecting tips...and I got this from a hair stylist/colorist! I don't go to chain salons, so I don't know about what they do...but if I hire a professional to perform a service that I wouldn't perform myself, I expect to be charged appropriately for that service. I'm a freelance writer that provides a professional service and runs a business and I charge appropriately--for my service which includes a level of professionalism, expertise, healthcare, retirement, taxes, etc.
