The Mail reports that Charlotte Jones, 27, was left with straw like hair and damage to her scalp after she paid £60 to have her brunette locks bleached blond.

She spent 7 hours in the Nottingham based salon and received five separate bleaching treatments after the first one turned her hair bright orange. The treatment was carried out by a trainee. Charlotte had to wear a hat for three months whilst her hair recovered. It is reported that the Salon no longer employees the trainee.

She received £5,250 in an out of court settlement.

I have previously blogged on these reported cases of injury at the hands of hairdressers. The industry needs to have some regulation especially in light of the numerous chemicals that hairdressers use that can cause injury like in the case of Charlotte above.
