Q:

How much do I tip my hairdresser for the holidays?

A:

Quick Answer

During the holidays, tip 5 to 10 percent more than the standard tip for the rest of the year. For service professionals, including hairdressers, a standard tip is 15 to 20 percent on average. Tipping 30 percent during the holidays is a nice gift for a hairdresser.

Full Answer

Holiday tipping is a nice gesture when going to the same hairdresser year-round but not always required with a brand new hairdresser. The general rule of thumb is to include a slightly larger tip than you typically would at appointments during other times of the year. Some clients like to give higher tips when getting a special hairstyle for a party or event, due to the extra work involved. It is also nice to put the holiday tip in an envelope with a note, as opposed to simply paying extra at the counter.
