Tipping Hairdressers

Is there a standard? Is it like that of the service industry at 15%? I never know how much to tip. I'm not talking about just a cut, I get the whole works. Anyone have any advice? Are there some rules that I should know about?

I have often wondered about this one, too

Good question...

My highlights are usually $90+, cut about $40+

Each is by a different person, and I usually toss $10 to each - eh, is this ok? Or substandard?

I've been using the same salon for years... and adore my Jay & Michelle...

Any 'industry insiders' out there who could shed some light?

PS: and what's the rule if your hairdresser owns the salon? I hear that's a different spin...

See, I once heard that tipping the owner is wrong - and could be taken as an insult (huh??)

I cannot comprehend not tipping if you get good service - regardless of ownership....

^^^^ Yes, that is cheap.

I usually tip $1 or $2 for my $10 hair cuts.
$1 for doing it
$2 for doing it good (not needing me to ask for corrections)

Holy shit, that's 150 bucks for your hair. That's insane!

Noooo....not really... pretty standard for girlies who do anything more than a cut...

and I even travel to the Hammer to do it - just 'cause I've been dealing with the same people for 10 (10??!!) years and love them so :)
