ASK THE WAXTHETICIAN™: Am I supposed to tip?

Ask the Waxthetician is an ongoing series of questions that our customers ask.  If our fabulous customers are pondering these questions, maybe you are too.

 What is a Waxthetician? Well, we made that word up because it sounds awesome and we like it :-)  To us: a Waxthetician is an esthetician who specializes in waxing.



While tipping is appreciated, it is not required! Waxtheticians are employees in the service industry just like stylists, servers and bartenders.  Although some Waxtheticians earn an hourly salary, some only earn a commission.  Generally speaking, the majority of customers tip 10% - 20% per service. Tips are based on cost of service, length of service and most importantly, how well the services are performed.
