Q: Is it proper to tip the owner of a salon, or diner if they are
providing you with the service? I have always been taught not to, but
many do not agree.
A: If the owner of the salon charges more for his/her services than other stylists in the salon charge, you do not tip. If he/she charges the same, then you do tip. If you aren’t sure, call and ask the booker or secretary if there is a difference in rates depending on who your stylist is.
