if hourly hair stylist can employer tax my tips if so how much?

If you are being paid hourly and over the minimum wage, you do not need to report your tips. However the percentage rule applies to make sure that your employer is paying you at LEAST minimum wage ( and therefore needs to report your tips)…this mainly applies to restaurants where many establishments pay those who are working on "tips" only the federally mandated $2.13 an hour.
