how much to tip hair salon?

Im getting married in NYC in October.

The salon has quoted me $163 and then add on 4% tax.

How much tip do i put ontop if any?

It is my wedding day but then i feel im paying enough anyway, im paying for the style....do i have to tip?

They are only doing my hair on the day.

Thanks, Hails :)

Yes, it is customary to tip your stylist about 15-20%.

Tips are proper protocol in a hair salon. The added tax is not something the salon gets. They don't charge the tax, they collect it and pass it on to the government. You made the choice to spend $163 on a special wedding day style. That doesn't excuse you from paying a tip. ( even if you feel you are paying enough anyway--as you said, you are paying for the STYLE!!)

No, Hails. If your bill is $163 a $10 tip would only be about 6%. As I wrote above it is customary to tip between 15% and 20%.

$163 divided by 5 is $32.60. It wouldn't hurt you to round up, either.
