Have you had a negligent beauty treatment?
We all visit hair and beauty salons to have treatments at some point. We often trust ‘specialists’ to use numerous products on our hair and bodies with the aim of helping us to look good. But what should you do if it all goes wrong?
If you thought about the number of different things that could go wrong during the course of a beauty treatment you would no doubt be frightened into not having them at all. Fortunately, in the majority of cases, beauty treatments are performed correctly and we leave the salon happy. However, there are cases where treatments can go wrong.
So, what could go wrong?
Care should always be taken by salons before applying hair dye or products to the skin. Hair salons should always insist on a patch test being done prior to any treatments, to rule out the possibility of you having an allergic reaction to the product they intend to use. Beauty salons should also complete a thorough health check with you identifying any allergies or illnesses that may be affected by the product that they intend to use on your skin. If they do not do this and you experience an allergic reaction, you may be able to make a claim. Claims can also arise where hair extensions are negligently applied.

Burns caused by hot wax or lasers are a common injury which can be sustained during the process of unwanted hair removal. Hair stylists and beauty therapists have a duty to perform the desired treatment to such a standard as would be expected by their peers and other professionals in their field. Therefore,if they fail to do this and as a result, you sustain a personal injury then you may have a claim for negligence.
It is important that you seek legal advice if you have experienced a negligent beauty treatment following a visit to a beauticians or hairdressers. Oliver & Co Solicitors can advise you on making a claim.
