Beautician Negligence

Compensation for Beautician Negligence

Going to a spa, beauty salon or hair salon is meant to be a relaxing experience, not a negative one. However sometimes a beautician’s negligence can put you in a position where you feel it is necessary to make a claim for compensation.

Beauticians must be trained in the services they offer to the public. If they are untrained it can leave clients in a position which is potentially hazardous to their health. Problems occur due to the treatment being applied incorrectly or the wrong chemicals being used for a procedure. Beauty treatment negligence is on the rise as the beauty industry grows and grows.

If you have experienced chemical burns from peroxide or other hair dyes, or severe damage to your hair or hair loss then you should get more information about how to make a hairdresser claim.

If you have been in a situation where you feel that beautician negligence has left you either in physical pain or caused you psychological damage, you will potentially have grounds for a successful claim against a beauty salon.

When Can I Make A Beautician Negligence Claim?

Common problems following a visit to a beauty salon are:

  • Burns: often burns follow wax which has been overheated or laser hair removal which has been too aggressively attempted.
  • Allergic reactions: before you have a beauty treatment your salon or beautician should do a skin test of the product they are going to use on you, particularly with hair dyes and any products that commonly cause reactions. This minimises the risk of unnecessary allergic reactions to products. Given that allergic reactions to beauty products can be serious; this is a precaution you should take if you are offered it. If you have turned down a patch test and then you have an allergic reaction to a product you probably won’t be in a position to enter into a claim.
  • Scarring: can follow from burns, from allergic reactions or from badly performed procedures. In all cases, scarring is not a desirable side effect of beauty therapy, and can be seriously psychologically damaging.
  • Ill applied semi-permanent make-up

What Does My Compensation Cover?

Your compensation will cover financial, emotional and psychological damages.

You will receive an amount based on the severity of your beauty salon injury and whether it has lasting effects. You will also receive an amount which covers your outgoings in terms of travel to appointments, loss of earnings, prescriptions and so on.

You should keep records of everything which is affected as a result of your injury so you can offer the most complete account of the situation to your lawyer. All the evidence you can collect to support you case will give you the best possible chance of being successful.

Often an injury received after a visit to a salon will result in time off work, embarrassment and sometimes will even ruin the event you were so looking forward to when you went to get that spray tan or haircut, be it a wedding, a holiday or a birthday.
