Full Answer

The total cost of services is used to calculate the amount of the tip. If a coupon or promotion code was used to reduce the cost of the hair services, the tip should be calculated using the total cost before the deduction.

The word "TIPS" is said to be an acronym for "to insure prompt service."More accurately, it should be "to ensure prompt service," but tipping is an incentive for service providers to strive for service excellence.
