The main reason is that there is, not surprisingly, a huge increase in the demand for hairdressing services leading to rush jobs as well as people trying out new colours and techniques that are not properly tested or considered.

If you have suffered injury or damage to your hair as a result of a visit to the hairdressers then you can look to claim compensation.

It is down to your stylist to determine what it the correct procedure, not you so even if you asked for something unsuitable it may still be the salon’s fault for carrying out a procedure that they knew may have been dangerous or damaging or didn’t bother to check by means of a patch test or similar.

Likewise it doesn’t matter whether the cut and/or treatment was done by the work experience trainee or the senior stylist; you are entitled to expect the work to be carried out to a reasonable standard and a reasonable standard does not include the following:

  • Damaged hair
  • Burns to scalp or face
  • Damage to eyes or ears
  • Irritation or rash developing

If you have suffered any of the above problems or similar then you need to call Gartons Solicitors to get your claim started.

You are entitled to claim for your injuries as well as the cost of making good the damage done and any other sundry financial losses that you may suffer as a result such as lost income etc.

Your claim can dealt with on a No Win-No Fee basis. This means that if you lose your claim then your solicitor will bear the costs and you will pay them nothing likewise if your claim is successful then the other side will pay your costs and there will be no deduction from your damages.

You have three years from the date of the treatment/cut to bring your claim but the sooner you bring the claim the better so that witnesses, records etc can be obtained that support your claim.

So if you have suffered injury and loss as a result of a poor service at your hairdressers get in touch with us today and claim your compensation.
