Everyone hates questions about tipping and gratuities.

My cousin was getting her hair highlighted at a beauty school yesterday. On a whim, I decided to go with her and put blonde highlights in my hair, since they had an opening at the same time. The girl that did it was catty, snarky, and an all around cow. The highlights don't look very good, but the instructor praised her for doing well. They way they styled my hair afterwards left me looking like Lionel Ritchie.

When I went to pay (50 bucks), the girl who colored my hair was standing right beside me. Even though I wasn't going to tip -- I mean, I wasn't pleased by her, the highlights sucked (and were unfixable unless I wanted to dye my hair brown), and I didn't care for the school, I felt obligated to because she was staring at me. I gave her five bucks. Would you have tipped?

Oh, by the way. The 44 foils she put in my mid-length hair took 4 hours. I sat in a chair from 12:30 to 4:30.
