What should I do if I am injured at the hairdressers?
Seek medical attention for any injuries- even if your injuries are fairly mild, and you feel that they could heal without any medical treatment, it is always the best idea to visit your local GP or A&E department with any injuries, and have them checked out. This is important not only for your health and well-being, but the records and notes from these appointments can become crucial evidence for any potential personal injury claim further down the line.
Save any paper work and correspondences- whether it is a receipt, a confirmation email, or phone records, it is also important to keep any relevant information regarding your appointment safe. This could be used during your claim simply as a way to verify your story.
Take photographs of your injuries- from the first day that you become injured, your injuries will begin to gradually change over time, and could begin to heal themselves. If this is the case, it can be difficult to argue a case of personal injury for which there is no evidence of any injuries. Because of this, you should always try to take regular photographs of your physical injuries, as well as how they change over time. You can even go one step further than this, and keep a personal injury diary, documenting your pain and experiences, in order to build your case further.
Contact an expert personal injury solicitor specialising in hairdresser compensation claims- a hairdresser claim can be a unique and complicated kind of personal injury claim. For this reason, it would always be advisable to work with a specialist beauty negligence solicitor who has experience in settling and winning cases just like yours.

How to sue a hairdresser:
If you are reading this page, you may be wondering, ‘can I sue my hairdresser?’, ‘How to sue a hairdresser?’, or ‘what is a hairdresser compensation claim?’. MG Legal’s specialist hairdresser and beauty treatment claims solicitors explain below.
Am I eligible to make a claim against my hairdresser?
When is comes to claiming for compensation against a hairdresser, or suing a hairdresser, the aim of the claim is to prove that you have suffered from injuries as a result of negligence on behalf of the hairdresser.
The damage that you have sustained must be genuine physical injuries, such as burns, cuts, blisters, or hair damage. You cannot simply sue a hairdresser for personal injury, for a haircut gone wrong.
If you have sustained injuries as a result of a hairdresser’s negligence, then you are eligible to make a claim for financial compensation with a specialist hairdresser and beauty treatment claims solicitor.
What is the claims process to sue a hairdresser?
Get in touch with our specialist hairdresser and beauty claims specialist solicitors, here, for a no obligation discussion of your potential claim.
Complete our simple claims form, and get it sent back to us.
If we decide to accept your claim, we will do so on a NO WIN NO FEE basis.
Your designated hairdresser and beauty claims solicitor will then send out a detailed letter to the hairdresser, salon, or defendant informing them of our intention to instruct on your behalf on your claim.
We will also gather as much expert evidence as possible, to build your claim to be as strong as it can be. As part of this, we have close working relationships with a wide range of leading medical professionals, who we will use to obtain full medical reports for your claim.
At this point, for the large majority of our clients, the hairdresser will accept liability for the claim, and we will begin the process of obtaining the maximum financial compensation in the settlement for you as our client.
In the small minority of claims where this is not the case, and the hairdresser or salon does not accept liability, then our specialist hairdresser and beauty claims solicitors will progress with taking your claim to court, and fighting tooth and nail to win the case in court. Our success rate in excess of 99% demonstrates our expert ability to do so.
What is a hairdresser injury claim?
As with all professionals in the beauty industry, hairdressers and hair salons have a legal duty of care that they owe to all customers. This includes completing necessary patch tests, obtaining full consent forms, and acting with care when completing their services, so as not to cause personal injury of any kind. However, this does not always happen.
If a hairdresser has failed to complete a patch test, resulting in an injury through an allergic reaction, a failure to obtain a full consent form and ask about your medical history where relevant, or failed to act in a safe and careful way when completing your hair treatment, then you could be eligible to make a claim for financial compensation for any injuries sustained.
Simply contact our no win no fee solicitors online here, and speak to a solicitor in a free no obligation consultation about your potential hairdresser injury claim.
What can lead to hairdresser compensation claims?
Our specialist beauty negligence solicitors regularly hear from clients who have had different experiences with their hair treatment gone wrong, leading to a beauty negligence injury claim. Some of the experiences that our clients have had during their hair appointment, leading to them seeking our legal assistance to make a hairdresser negligence claim for financial compensation, include:
Our hairdresser negligence solicitors recently worked with a client who had been injured at the hairdressers in an appointment to have her long-awaited hair extensions fitted. When she got home from the appointment, she began to suffer from a bad headache and began developing lumps and sore patches across her head. The hairdresser had fitted the hair extensions far too close to our client’s scalp, leading to injury and discomfort, that should have been avoided if the hair extensions were fitted correctly.
Another client had been to her local hairdressing salon for a perming treatment to her hair. She thought that everything was going to plan in the treatment, but the perming chemical was left on her hair for over half an hour too long while the hairdresser was busy seeing other customers and answering the phone. Because of this, our client developed serious burns across her head which were extremely dark and noticeable to others.
What kind of accidents can happen at the hairdressers?
There are a number of different injuries and accidents that can occur in a hair salon. They work with sharp scissors, hot styling tools, and potentially harmful dyes and other chemicals.
Some of the most common injuries that are sustained in hairdressers and barbers are:
Allergic reactions to products such as dyes and toning products, where no patch test is carried out beforehand
Damage to hair where the burning of the scalp leads to hair loss
Cuts, scars, or lacerations from sharp objects such as scissors
Loss of hair and bald patches in reaction to chemicals being misused
Contact dermatitis of the scalp from dyes and other chemicals being left on for too long
How much is my hairdresser compensation claim worth?
The amount of financial compensation that you could receive for your personal injury claim will depend on the injuries that you have suffered, and any other financial losses or expenses. See more on these extra losses, here.
Every injury is unique, and there is no way to accurately predict how much a personal injury claim is worth. Below are general guidelines as provided by the Judicial College, as to the amounts that can be won for the injuries alone.
Expected financial compensation:
Damage to the hair in consequence of defective permanent waving, or the like, where the ‘burning’ of the scalp causes dry, brittle hair which breaks or falls out.
£6,890 to £10,340
Less serious versions of the above where symptoms are fewer or of a minor nature.
£3,710 to £6,890
Scarring- A single noticeable or obvious scar, or otherwise a number of less noticeable scars
£2,220 to £7,350
