View Full Version : Tipping for hair extensions?
03-08-2005, 12:29 PM
My fiance is getting hair extensions today. The cost of service is $700.00 for a full session, which can last anywhere from 4-8 hours. She will not be getting a cut or wash, or any of the other services normally associated with visiting a salon. Should she tip? If so, at what rate do you tip a person already making a minimum of $87.50 per hour?

Oops. I got you twice. Here is my response from my email: The price of the service does not affect the gratuity percentage. The general rule regarding expensive services is that if you feel like the cost for the service plus the gratuity is too expensive, then you should consider finding a less expensive service. The appropriate percentage is 10-20%, depending upon how long it takes and the quality of service.

I think I WOULD tip appropriately for extensions. That's an awful lot of work, and I'll bet the stylist's hands are mighty stiff after all of that.

Wow, I didn't realize a salon prodedure like that cost so much money.

Oh, yeah! I've never had it done, but I've SEEN it done. It takes FOREVER and is a whole lotta work. Yiou ought try getting your hair colored and then highlighted - pack a lunch!

I agree with Madge, for something so involved as hair extensions I would tip. Heck, if you can afford the extensions, you can surely afford to leave a tip...
