    Definitely leave the tip at the front desk. My friend and I had a $175 each spa day recently, mani, pedi, facial, massage and lunch and we left $20.00 each but the service was impeccable. They seemed impressed.

    When i went to a really nice place my sister had bought a giftcard for..she had included the tip. You might want to make sure so you are not leaving even more. Have fun!

    If 1 person does both your mani and pedi give him/her $10. If you get a different person for each then give them $5 each. So I would just say $5 per service. Have fun!!!

    LOL, Beth. I was pretty confident in my response, but I also looked it up after I responded. When I started going to the spa a few years ago, I actually had a card titled spa etiquette that I carried around in my purse.

    Have fun!

    Up until last year I went to a pretty swanky spa monthly for my facials & eye brow wax. 15% is customary, but you may of course leave more or less, depending on the quality of the service.

    Another tip is to leave the tip at the reception desk when you pay your bill rather than giving it directly. If you receive multiple services from different people (a facial esthetician, mancurist, etc.), leave a separate tip for each of them.

    5 is what i usually do when it's a 30 minute deal, and they always seem happy. this is going to be 2.5 hours though....and it's a fancy shmancy place lol. i dunno, i'll just wait and see i guess. the bill is like 110 dollars i think so i will probably leave 15 percent i guess....i just googled spa etiquette lol! i'm a dork.....

    Hi. I would just tip between 15 to 20 percent, depending on your experience.

    Have a wonderful time relaxing. I am excited for you and everyone deserves a pampered day. Have fun and don't stress about the tip.

    Default Just a guess

    Depending on how nice a place it is... I would take a guess and say a 15 to 20 dollar tip? I could be way off here.... I guess it depends on how much the price of the gift certificate is.....and do a % you feel comfortable with? Hope that helps
