About Hair Damage Claims

Hairdressers and beauty technicians go through comprehensive training before working in salons; however, sometimes things can go wrong during hair appointments that leave you with physical injuries and psychological symptoms.

The team at JMW has experience in dealing with the following hair damage and issues:

  • Burning of the skin
  • Over-bleaching
  • Hair loss
  • Itchy or flaky skin
  • Rashes

Many hair treatments involve the use of potentially harmful substances and strong chemicals, which can cause serious injury if used incorrectly. In some instances, injuries could have been prevented with the simple use of a patch test; a procedure that may be overlooked even though bleaches and hair dyes often cause allergic reactions.

What is the Hair Salon’s Responsibility?

The hairdressing industry is not regulated, which therefore means that there may be those who are holding themselves out to be hairdressers, who have no qualifications. Indeed, the Hairdressing Council estimates that only around 10% of hairdressers are registered with them.  Salons and mobile stylists may have employed individuals like this, who should not be allowed to perform hair treatments but still do.

Although the Council has the power to deal with complaints against registered hairdressers, it doesn’t have the same ability to deal with unregistered ones. But despite there being no clear regulation for hair salons, owners and stylists are still accountable for personal injuries caused on their premises, and a claim can be made against them for any damage done to your hair.
