Tipping the salon owner??

Could I please hear about whether or not you tip the salon owner when s/he does your hair? what do stylists have to say about this? I recently went to a new salon and stylist, and I tipped (the owner did my hair). Tomorrow I have another appt., and I dont know what to do...
There's a similar thread on tipping here: Tipping?

Might be of some help!

I always tip no matter who it is.. they need to make a living too. And they'll be more inclined to do a good job on your hair

Edit: I think it's rude not to tip for any kind of beauty service. Unless they are absolutely horrible and you'll never go back to them.

I tip regardless of who does my hair. The lady that owned the salon I go to passed away last year. The lady who did my hair bought out the salon, fixed it up, renamed it, and reopened. I tipped her last time she did my hair. She does an excellent job and I want her to know I appreciate it. I usually give a 20% tip for a good hairstylist.
I do. I don't care who is doing my hair as long as they do a good job. And salon owners have expenses, too--just because they own the salon doesn't mean they're raking it in. So whoever cuts my hair, if they do a good job, they get tipped.
3a/b, F, normal porosity

Wash with either Suave Tropical Coconut, As I Am, or CJ Daily Fix
Condition with STC or Yes to Blueberries and detangle with Denman, rinse very lightly (baptismal rinse)
Add LAL gel, either Sport or Wet Look, scrunch with flour sack towel, and plop
Diffuse 5 minutes, then air dry
