Don’t be such a cheapskate and tip accordingly !!!

Default No don't tip the owner. Employees of salons have to pay owners for space and so is i

Don't tip an owner. It's pure profit, if they think its customary I'd say it's pure greed!

Default Tipping

I thought you should tip in an amount at least as much as the service. Since my groomer charges 45, I should tip at least that amount. Same with my lawn guy. He charges 70 so I tip at least that. If I were in the service industry, I would definitely want cash. You don’t know what perfume I wear or if I drink booze, so why would you give me that. Can you say re-gift?

You received a service. And a more personal one than going to a salon. Tip.

What would be the reasoning behind this? If you need to tip what equals the price then the problem is how much is charged in the first place. It used to be that a typical tip, not a holiday tip, was to guide the service person about how well they have served you. It is unfortunate that now the salaries of some services assume a tip. I feel these people should be paid a proper salary in the first place and not be reliant on varying degree of customers’ appreciation.

The tipping of an amount equal to one service from the provider is for an annual holiday tip. I don't know when exactly it came about, but I've read about it for quite a few years.


I remember growing up that we tipped the paper boy and maybe the dry cleaner delivery man, at Christmas. Or maybe just the paper boy.

Oh, I understand, I thought it was for every service provided. Now, for holiday tipping that makes sense.
