Hairdresser And Beauty Therapy Negligence

When visiting a hairdressers or beauticians, you should always expect professional treatment and care from specialists to make sure you look and feel your best.

Hairdressers and salons are required to meet particular regulations controlling the storage, use and disposal of chemicals such as hair dye. They are also required by law to ensure electrical appliances used for hair styling are regularly tested for safety.

Salons should also carry out a hair strand test where required to ensure chemicals in styling products will not damage your hair follicles.

However, there is currently no registration scheme in the UK for these services, so you cannot always be sure of receiving professional treatment by fully trained people, and things can go wrong. If they do, we can help get you the compensation you deserve.

Some examples of hairdresser claims and salon negligence include:

  • hair loss, brittle and/or thin hair
  • burns or blisters to the skin or scalp
  • reactions to chemicals or products
  • delayed regrowth of hair
  • itchy or flaky skin irritations
  • waxing resulting in damage to skin
  • eyelash treatments resulting in eye irritation
