Hair cut

I got my hair cut last night. My hair dresser, Bathsheba (I know ... right?), she's opening up her own salon, Sparrow, but her landlord didn't get a permit to do work on the facade so they got a stop work order and now instead of cutting hair in her new nifty hair salon she's and her partner are working out of a friend's art gallery on Milwaukee in the middle of Bucktown/Wicker Park. Contrary to Mr. H.'s popular belief, it is not in a basement. It is however, fairly basic, just a chair and some mirrors. No shampooing, so coloring, no perms (not that I think she'd give me a perm even if I begged, but who knows...maybe next time when I go in I'll ask if she can perm my hair). Anyway, the up side is that I get pretty basic hair cuts and she's charging less than she normally does since she's obviously not a fully functioning hair salon. However, now that she's the owner of her own salon, do I not need to tip her anymore? Once, a long long time ago, I went to a place and had my hair cut by the owner and he said I didn't need to tip him because he was the owner and you don't tip the owner. I don't want to offend her by tipping. So if you have any ideas, let me know.
