I personally don't tip in percentages anymore, sometimes it works out to be too much, especially at fancy restaurants (i.e. I'm tipping the person more than I make in an hour even thought their total service to me took less than an hour!). It annoys me that it costs so much to eat out, and yet servers make insane amount of money in tips (like 100$ in a 4 hour shift) with no education or specialized training. And this is coming from a former waitress, but I worked at a family diner and I was happy to get like 2-5$ tip per table, not 10-20$. (Sorry for the rant there!) I personally usually tip my stylist 5$ for a cut and 10-15$ for cut and highlights, which I guess is about 10% of what it costs me (actually closer to 15% as I see a stylist who works from home and has awesome prices). But honestly, if I went to a really expensive salon that charged 200$ for highlights I would still tip 10$ even though that was only work out to be 5% (yikes!). I guess I feel that just because a person (or restaurant) charges more doesn't necessarily mean I should have to tip a lot more. So in percentage terms I am much more likely to tip generously when the overall price is cheaper.
Anyways, I'm sure whatever you tipped is fine. A tip should be a bonus and not expected. You have no reason to feel bad.

You would be surprised how many don't even think about it. If your a booth renter they know all the money goes into your pocket... so some people just don't bother... and others when you work hrly at a place... IE: mall chains and such ... they don't bother 2 because you are a mall girl.
Just tip her more next time you are in ... you love her and she always does a great job right?? Surprises are nice... so isn't XMAS... I get a full stock of wine right around then too ... yummy... LOL
