Paying At The Hair Salon Doesn’t Have To Be Rocket Science: Here’s Exactly How To Determine The Correct Tip For Your Hairdresser

If you had more of an extensive trip to the salon and had not only an assistant wash your hair but also got work done by a colorist and then a stylist, here’s what to do. You still want to tip at least 20% of your services total and then divide the tip.

So, for instance, if you were at the salon and got a haircut, blow-dry, and color done with a $100 total, you take your 20% tip and split the $20 between the colorist and the stylist. Then, still tip the assistant a few bucks.

If you had a coupon for your salon visit or got a discount, you should still tip your hairdresser as if you were paying the full price of the services. Just because you got a discounted rate doesn’t mean the salon staff did any less work, so know the full cost of the services before getting them so you can give a decent tip.

Now, if you ever get confused during your salon and don’t know who to tip or can’t remember who worked on your hair, simply as the salon receptionist! They have tabs on everything and will be able to help you calculate your tip and make sure it goes to the right people.

Of course, if you went to the salon and your visit wasn’t great, like if your color was wrong or your cut was too short, you can adjust your tip. You should always go into a salon trip prepared to give a 20% tip, but if something goes wrong or you didn’t have a good experience, you can bring it down.

If your visit was more than amazing and you had an exceptional experience, feel free to work your way up!

As Phoebe Waller-Bridge says in her famous television series “Fleabag,” hair is ‘everything.’ When your hairdresser does a great job, it can make you feel confident, attractive, happy, and at the top of your game. So, don’t forget to show them your appreciation and give them the tip they deserve!
