I booth rent. You might be interested to know my approximate weekly expenses (monthly expenses have been broken down accordingly):
Rent - $182
Liability insurance - $15
Merchant services processing and terminal fees - $20
Phone - $15
Backbar - $55
Color and color supplies - $100
Laundry (water, supplies) - $5
Other supplies (office, postage, materials, etc.) - $50
In other words, I have to book almost $450 in services every week before I can even bring home dollar one to my family.
It is your choice to tip or not tip, as you wish. But do not justify your decision by insisting the actual earnings of a stylist who is a booth renter equals 100% of what they book when that is far from the truth.
