Waxing - do you tip yopur estetican?

I am so confused, I am a student and I always tip my hairdresser but I don't know if I should tip a person who waxes my legs?

If you do tip, how much?

Thank you so much.

I work at a hair salon and I say yes you should tip your estetican because they work just as hard as a stylist! =)

In relation to this topic what really ticks me off anymore is a tip jar just about anywhere you go like a deli counter, drive through car wash where they towel it dry for you, or sandwich shop, chinese restaurant, etc... where you go up, order your food, they cook it, and you take it home. No serving involved. No real service other than giving you your food just like at McDonalds. Many of these are things you are paying for anyway. That ticks me off. I am not cheap, but not everyone deserves a tip. Hair stylists, waxers, etc... yes.

Amen! I am not cheap either, but walking up to an ice cream window where the persons' job is to get you an ice cream and then having to tip them for doing their job is absolutely outrageous! These tip jars are turning up everywhere NOT just the service industry.

I work in a spa, and would say that 98% of patrons tip their ethesticians. Anywhere from 10-20%.

Oh the tip jars. I hate these. You know I already pay way too much for a drip coffee and they want me to tip for this, for what, pulling a lever and putting a lid on my cup. I think not. I do not tip on take out of any kind, your already paying for the food to be made and your not getting service. I always tip my stylist, the maids at a hotel, which 90% of people don't do, and why not. People go into a hotel room and live like they would not at their own house and then expect it to be cleaned. Yes these damn tip jars drive me crazy.

Tipping in the US

As a visitor to the US it was a shock to see all the tip boxes, like begger boxes,
and further shocked to twice being asked to produce more tip or else did I have a complaint. Being shouted at for lack of tip after an automatic car wash by person who hosed the wheels down before entering; it was also the most expensive car wash I'd ever come across but in no other country does one tip for such service. I totally understand tipping for personal service and service above and beyond expectation, but it might be far better to negotiate a living wage instead of relying on the mood of a customer to pay your wages. The whole tipping system is degrading to both service provider and customer.
Now I know to budget another 20% or not visit.

Remember it's not a requirement to put money in a tip jar. They don't begrudge you in any way if you don't. The majority of these people get paid dirt anyhow. They also have to deal with more crap from uppity people and scumbags alike for minimum wage. So what? They can't have an extra $10 a week because they're not roasting your coffee beans or personally seasoning your chicken sandwich? They have to open/close and clean up the store and after YOUR mess and provide you with a product that they still have to prepare in some way. That's service to me.
