So I am going to be seeing a new hairdresser, and when I made the appointment she pointed out that she owns her own business.
I have always seen people in salons before, and of course gave them generous tips.
However I remember from my wedding etiquette stuff that if the person owned their own business you didn't have to tip them, since all of the money was going directly to them, and although they had overhead, supplies, etc, they would "build it in" to the cost of their service.
What do you think - is this true for hair stylists too? Should I tip her or not? (By the way it is fairly expensive without the tip - it's not like I'm getting a stellar deal or anything, and I've never met her before so she's not a friend or anything like that either.)
Please help nesties! I would like to save money if possible but I don't want to do the wrong thing either. And I thought about throwing in a small tip on top but I didn't know if that would be a slap in the face or what...
