Jennifer Lopez has earned many nicknames over the years – everything from Bennifer (when she was with Ben Affleck) to J.Lo. But in hushed tones in certain beauty salons across Los Angeles, the singer and actress has also been dubbed, Paylo – a reference to what some say it her apparent lack of generosity when it comes to tipping.
In an age when celebrities get so much for free, both goods and services, the etiquette of paying and tipping is clearly being rewritten. As the very presence of a star at a salon can instantly create a paparazzi frenzy, some celebrities feel that that’s all the tipping they need to do. The deal basically being, “well, you tipped off everybody I was here to tout your biz, so, there’s your tip.”
“Jennifer Lopez thought her friendship paid for the service,” sniped one Beverly Hills beauty expert. “One time she came into a salon and got her eyebrows shaped, hair colored, and a blowout for free and then left with out tipping anyone,” sputtered the disgruntled beautician. Another source told Beauty Undercover how she did a beauty treatment on the actress and when it was over, she allegedly got up and simply left the room without leaving a tip. ”I was excited to be working on a celebrity but I was in total shock when she didn’t leave a tip. I learned first hand why everyone in the salon secretly called her Paylo,” alleged the beauty guru.
