Please tell me what the going rate is for tipping for a pedicure. Also for a manicure. I think I overtip the pedicurist because it seems like an awful job to me!

Many thanks!

15-20%, depending on how good the service was.

My minimum tip for personalized service longer than a quick lunch is $10.
Going by % & doing calculations seems cheap & petty to me, in hindsight... yeah I used to do it too.

Good tips = better service. I noticed it immediately when I started tipping better. People will go the extra mile for ya when they know you take care of them too.

10-20% all depends. Only 2 places I like to go too so they know how to treat you.

I believe if someone is providing a luxury service such as a manicure, pedicure, massage, unless they are the owner, and unless the service was extremely poor, I would always go for the 20%. That's just me. I find that the people that perform these services are usually extremely hard workers. If I can afford to have these luxury/necessitities, then I can afford to be generous.

Le't see the work done, and tell us how much you paid. Then I'll tell you if you tipped well or not.

The cost of the mani-pedi was $33 for both. I gave the pedicurist $10 and the manicurist $5. Maybe this was too much?

That's a lot of money. You're generous. I know they must have done a good job. You can always DM me the work.
