How much to tip for manicure?

Recommended Posts

If I spend $10 on a manicure how much should I tip? I never know what to tip, so sometimes I'll tip a ton of money and sometimes only a dollar or so. Nail techs get paid well, right? It's not like working in a restaurant where they pay less with the expectation that you make a lot of money in tips.

I tip according to how cute she is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I kid.....or do I? I always tip atleast 15% but sometimes more if we really hit it off. If I like the person and we are gabbing it up the whole time and what not, i'll give them a really good tip, ofcourse how good of a job they do is considered, too.

I don't know how much they make, actually. Though ever since I became a waitress I refuse to tip less than five dollars. I mean. If everyone tipped me five dollars the nights I waited tables I'd definitely be coming home with more than 11 dollars in my pocket like I am now.

I agree with Marisol. I generally tip $3 on a fill-in with acrylic nails, and that's about a $15 service. I give them a bigger tip when I have a pedi or full set.

I've always heard you should tip everyone (not just food service people) a minimum of 15% -- anymore, 15% is almost on the cheap side, and it's recommended you tip 18-20%.

 

I never get manicures, but I'll tip $2 for a haircut that costs $10 or $12.

I've never done any manicures, yet. But, we never do tip here in Japan, not even for haircut. We just don't do it here.

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
