Hair/Makeup Trials - Tips?

Hey girls,

When i get my trials done for the hair and makeup, do i need to also tip the hair dresser/makeup person?

What about during the wedding? Do i need to tip them on top of the amount they charge?

    My hairstylist is an independant and makes 100% of the money I'm paying him - doesn't go through a salon or any third party - right into his pocket so... I'm on the fence on this one....

    He might do a little extra for me on the day of the wedding so I MAY tip him then.. but my trial, likely not.

    thanks for the response! that helps

    same situation here. both the makeup and the hair people are independent and don't work out of a salon.

    That's why i'm thinking not to tip. But i also don't want to end up looking cheap or rude...

    I tipped both at the trial and on the wedding day just because her prices were so reasonable in the first place. And she did great work.

    I am tipping for hair as its at a salon.

    Makeup -friend from highschool who does makeup on the side (one of her many jobs!). My trial is free and makeup for the day is $40 each. I plan to tip for the day of and she asked to be "tagged" in facebook photos if I choose to post any -so that's free advertising :)

    I ended up tipping the makeup person. I don't even know why because what she did was horrible. I'm kinda disappointed :(

    I wanted to tip my hair person but she didnt take it, said i'm being silly. she on the other hand did an amazing job.
