Hair and Beauty Claims

The rise in popularity of hair and beauty treatments, including hair dyeing, body waxing, eyebrow shaping and permanent makeup, has led to an increase in injuries.

If you have suffered an injury after visiting a beauty salon or hairdressers, you may be able to make a claim for the injuries and subsequent psychological distress you suffered. Ramsdens Solicitors are on hand to provide comprehensive advice and guidance so you get the compensation you deserve.

TYPES OF COSMETIC SURGERY CLAIMS

Cosmetic surgery injuries can take place before, during or after a procedure, with the most common botched procedures being:

  • Breast enlargement
  • Breast reduction
  • Facelifts
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Brow lifts
  • Laser procedures
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Gastric surgery

TYPES OF HAIR AND BEAUTY INJURIES

Injuries can range from minor to severe burns that require long-term treatment and may cause permanent scarring. We have helped many disappointed customers who have suffered from:

  • Waxing burns
  • Scalp damage
  • Burns from hair dye, bleach or other chemicals
  • Equipment burns (e.g. hair dryers, straighteners and curling tongs)
  • Cuts from scissors, or during manicures or pedicures
  • Tanning bed burns
  • Allergic reactions to products
  • Hair loss

CAUSES OF COSMETIC SURGERY, HAIR AND BEAUTY INJURIES

Many cosmetic surgeries, beauty treatment salons and hairdressers are poorly regulated, if at all, and it is not uncommon for treatments to be given by untrained professionals. Because these treatments involve potentially dangerous chemicals, it’s important that they are handled correctly and the customer is told of the potential risks, as the consequences can be devastating.

Before a treatment is started, the cosmetic surgeon, hairdresser or beautician should:

  • Provide you with all the relevant information about your procedure.
  • Perform a test to see if any of the chemicals used trigger an allergic reaction.
  • If you were not adequately informed about the risks of a treatment, you may be able to make a claim for professional negligence.

The same applies to procedures that are incorrectly performed by employees (e.g. chemical or hot wax spillages, hairdressing mistakes and cuts) and result in an injury. If the accident was caused because the member of staff was inadequately trained, the negligence lies with their employer and a claim can be made against them.
