How much should you tip? Nail salon Etiquette

Business Ideas

What’s the one thing you look forward to after a busy workweek? Most women look forward to a relaxing manicure and pedicure. Despite the cost, thousands of women are willing to spend money on their nails summerlin las vegas. There’s nothing more relaxing than to see your nails neatly manicured and beautifully painted. But the question most women want to know is how much should they tip their nail technician. Are you going to give them a tip? But what if you don’t like their filing job? Are you required to give gifts to your technician if you’re a regular customer? Here’s a handy guide on tipping in nail salons.

How Much Should You Tip Your Nail Technician?

The standard should be between 15 to 20% of the total service cost. However, there are customers who prefer to tip more than the standard if they availed of a low-cost service. Customers who are super impressed by the results are more than willing to tip more than the usual to show their appreciation.

What Would The Salon Staff Prefer?

As long as you give a 15-20% tip, nail salon staff will be happy but it’s not about whether you’re going to tip or not, the main concern is how you do it. Nail salon technicians would always prefer that you pay in cash rather than in credit card because when you pay using your credit card and ask them to deduct the tip from your total charge there is no assurance that the nail technician assigned to you would be able to receive it. Yes, we’d like to believe in honesty but unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and there are some businesses that don’t tip fairly.

If you like the job of a certain nail technician but you don’t give a tip or if they dub you as a bad tipper then there’s a big chance that the next time you specifically request for that nail technician, she may refuse to work on you. However, nail salons are resolute that customers should only pay for the salon’s services and tipping is not an obligation. However, if you want to get good quality service and if you want your nail technician to go the extra mile to pamper you, we recommend that you tip them fairly.

Should You Tip The Owner of the Salon?

Should you tip the owner? Customarily, you don’t really need to but there are certain clients who choose to tip the owner as to how much, well, it’s usually lesser than the tipping rate of the nail technician, around 10%. Owners can either graciously refuse a tip or happily accept it so don’t worry about it. You’ll know if they’ll accept or reject your offer.

What Happens If You Don’t Like The Service?

There are customers who are completely dissatisfied with the service they got and because they aren’t happy they tip less or they don’t tip at all. Well, in professional work ethics, tipping should be given in exchange for the technician’s time and it’s not something you give as a reward or a punishment. If you aren’t happy you can just tip them fairly and then tell them upfront what made you dissatisfied about the service that way they’d know and correct their mistakes the next time. In fact, nail technicians are willing to be corrected while they are working on your nails. If you don’t like the trimming style or the color of the polish you can interrupt their work and tell them to change it rather than wait until they are finished and then complain afterward.

So there you have it, the answers to your nail tipping questions.
