Daniel Post Senning, Emily Post Institute spokesperson, advises tipping hairstylists 20%. "Remember that just like servers in restaurants, hairdressers depend on tips as part of their income," says. Holidays are the only exception: As a bonus, tip your hairdresser 10% more during the holidays.

Tipping your hairdresser is polite and you should feel good about it. "Remember that the word 'gratuity' comes from 'gratitude,'" says Post. "Think of tipping less as an obligation and more of a way of being thankful for someone who is pampering you and making you look and feel your best."

Post suggests asking the front desk operator to calculate and distribute tips. "When you have three separate people helping you, it can be confusing to monitor their names and what they should be tipped.

Ask the front desk employee to verify your service cost if you used a coupon or Groupon. "Tip 20% on the true total cost of the service, not the discounted cost," Schweitzer adds. "The hairdresser did the same amount of work, so they deserve the same amount of tip."
