If you're going to pay $60 - $80 on a salon service such as a massage or a facial, what do you think is an appropriate tip for the person providing the service ?

It seems that the 15-20% rule is a litle excessive. You come out spending about $100 when you're finished.

Everyone I know tips 15-20%, sometimes more if you're a regular or the service was exceptional.

If you have $60 to $80 to spend on a luxury such as a massage or facial in the first place, why would you even quibble about a $20 tip?

I got my wife a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure at a day spa and was asked if I wanted to include a tip. The gift certificate had a check box included on it with what seemed to be a standard tip of 18%.

I'd say 20% for a good job, but 30% if you got rubbed AND tugged:D

I'll tip 30% + if I use a gift certificate. Are you aware of the amount of stress a good therapist can unwind?

My wife has been to one recently and they included an 18% tip. I think it's unreasonable to assume you did a good enough job for that much and it could also keep people from tipping more.
