Beauty treatment claims

A trip to your local Salon is supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience and a majority of treatments are carried out well.  Unfortunately, for some clients it can end in disaster resulting in injury and damage which can often cause considerable distress and embarrassment.

In these cases, individuals can suffer injury, damages or losses as the direct result of negligence on the part of a hairdresser or therapist. 

The beauty treatment injuries in such cases can range from burns and damage to skin including scarring, permanent damage to hair and, in very extreme cases, can cause death.

The chemicals, products and equipment used by hairdressers and therapists can be extremely dangerous if they are not used with proper skill and care. Any reputable hairdresser or therapist must carry out certain tests prior to applying these.  Failure to do so will leave them exposed to a claim for negligence.

A lack of proper regulation of the beauty treatment industry has been a long-standing problem.  Changes that came into effect in April 2017 mean that all cosmetic practices are now required to register with Health Improvement Scotland.  It is estimated, however, that a considerable proportion of practices remain unregistered.
