I've got a salon etiquette question for you. My stylist moved from a large salon to a new smaller operation. At the new place there is no support staff (receptionist, shampoo girl, etc.). My stylist now answers her own calls, schedules her own appointment, washes hair and everything. Her prices have gone up $10-15. My question is, in this new set up, am I still supposed to tip? It seems to me that tipping should not be necessary since she is no longer responsible to the "house" or support staff. What do you think?
