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.

    To relax hair, protect the hair line with petroleum jelly, apply a relaxer cream to 1-inch hair sections, rub each section from the scalp to the tip to remove the curl, and after the wait time recommended by the manufacturer, rinse the relaxer out. Use a neutralizing shampoo, and moisturize.
