Who Do You Tip (And How Much)?

While most know they’re expected to tip restaurant staff (87 percent of people say they typically feel obligated to leave a gratuity); hairstylists (69 percent); bartenders (62 percent); taxi, car or limo drivers (60 percent); valets (54 percent); and bellhops (52 percent), according to a survey released this year by coupon site CouponCabin.com, they aren’t quite as sure about many other working people. “In almost every class or program we offer, questions about tipping are always asked,” says Pamela Eyring, the president of etiquette school The Protocol School of Washington. “People ask when to tip, who to tip and how much to tip.”

I tip my waitress and hairdresser. That's about it. I should probably tip more often but I'm often on the fence thinking "should I tip them or not??" When I do tip, I generally tip about 20%.

Waitresses and the lady that does my hair. I tip between 15-20% based on the service and how good it is.
