Tipping etiquette for services: How much to tip?

Question in title: What's the appropriate percentage to tip for services, such as the hairdresser, nail salon, etc? Are we supposed to stick to the usual 18-20% (like at restaurants)?

  • If its a cheap restaurant like Denny's or Steak and Shake I go 30-35%. If its expensive like Ruth's Chris I go 15%. For a hairdresser at a Fantastic Sams I used to tip $5. For someone who owned their own shop I wouldn't tip. They set their own price. I'm certain a tip was worked in there. Bartenders get $1 a drink.

  • I generally do 20% across the board, good rule of thumb I think.

    • Yea, I try to stick to, at least, 20%... which is what I usually tip at restaurants but I've never been sure if the same applies for service places too.

    • I'm not 100% sure what's correct but it seems like a good way to go😂

    • Lol... I hear ya ;)

  • depends on your country. In Britain they tip as a convenience, not as a mandatory thing. Example of the bill is $48.25 they just pay with a $50 bill. because they don't care about the $1.75

  • I think 10% is enough. If you pay 100 dollars, that's a 10 dollar tip.

    You pay 20 dollars, that's a 2 dollar tip.
