I have a special interest in claims arising out of negligent beauty treatment whether that be microdermabrasions, waxing, laser hair removal, nail treatments/extensions or indeed hairdressing/ colouring/perming that have gone wrong where fault/ negligence can be established on behalf of the therapist.

I was interested to read this morning a case dealt with by another firm that was reported on Lawtel. The formal title of this case was E( A Child) v The Crop Beauty Salon ( 2012).

In this case the Claimant was a minor, she was 16 at the date of the accident and 17 when the case was concluded. She went along to the Defendant's salon to have her eyebrows waxed. When she left after the treatment she noticed that her eyebrows were still burning and by the time she had got home her eyebrows were swollen. She went to her local Accident and Emergency Department where the doctors diagnosed her with an allergic reaction.

The salon admitted that they were at fault. Her symptoms lasted for 2 to 3 weeks and she was awarded £1000.00 on account of her injuries in an out of court settlement.
