Since Studio Galactica opened our doors in 2001, we have maintained a no tipping policy. Due to a steep increase in the cost of providing a safe environment for our clients and stylists, we have collectively decided to temporarily allow tipping in the salon to help offset the cost of safely providing services to our clients. We understand that many clients are also facing economic hardship which is why we do not want to raise our prices at this time. It is also why we have no expectation of tips, only sincere appreciation for all of our clients and a desire to get back to our original model as soon as possible. We will reassess the temporary suspension of the no tipping policy in September.
