Compensation for Injury in a Beauty Salon or Hairdressers

Whilst a trip to the beauty salon may conjure up images of relaxation and pampering, many services use potentially harmful chemicals and machinery. Bleaching, perming, waxing, electrolysis, eyelash extensions and nails are all services which require skill from the beauty technician.

Employees of salons are required to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work. They also have to follow certain regulations when dealing with substances such as acetone, hair dye, adhesives and perming solutions.

Whilst most beauty technicians are highly responsible and stick to strict procedures to ensure the safety of their clients, if a beauty technician fails to exercise reasonable skill or care whilst providing a service then you could sustain an injury as a result. If this happens then you may be entitled to seek compensation for those injuries.

Time Limit

Court proceedings must normally be commenced within 3 years of the date of your accident. If court proceedings are not commenced within the 3 year period then your claim will be out of time. Although a court does have the discretion to allow court proceedings to be commenced and to continue after the 3 year period has expired this must not, and cannot, be relied on.

The 3 year period is different if, for example, the person injured was under 18 years of age at the time of their injury. In this case the 3 year period does not commence until their 18th birthday.
