A trip to your local Salon is supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. However for some clients it can end in disaster resulting in injury and damage which can often cause considerable distress and embarassment. In a number of cases the damage suffered has been the direct result of the negligence of the hairdresser or therapist. Unfortunately, despite proposals to the Government, this industry remains unregulated leaving claimants at the the disposal of ‘cowboy practitioners’.
The beauty treatment injuries in such cases range from burns and damage to skin including scarring, permanent damage to hair and in very extreme cases 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.
