Q:

How much should one tip hairdressers?

A:

According to Emily Post, hairdressers should be tipped from 15 to 20 percent. If hair salon services were provided by more than one person, the tip should be divided among those who served the client.

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.
