Q: At my salon there are different people who work on my hair: One for shampoo, one for color and one for styling (cutting). Do I tip each one? How much should each person receive?
A: Yes, you should leave a tip for each person. Typically you leave $2-3 ($4-5 if you’re at a more expensive salon) for the shampoo person. For stylists and colorists tip the customary 15-20 percent. You can let the receptionist know how much you are leaving for each person, and she’ll take care of divvying it up. If you have questions about tipping you can always ask how it is usually handled at reception or inquire with the person who helps set up the appointment.
