Injury solicitors in Burton


Hairdressing has always been a popular industry, but with so many more treatments and styling options available these days, it is continuously growing. There are over 36,000 hairdressing salons and barbers in the UK and thousands of freelance hairdressers who carry out treatments in clients’ homes.

Burton residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing where they will get their next haircut, but before you rush off to get a new hairdo, you may want to consider some facts about the hairdressing industry.

Hair-raising facts about hairdressing – Why you may need injury solicitors in Burton

No need for qualifications – Unlike beauty salons and individuals that are responsible for administering beauty treatments, employees in a hairdressing salon are not required to undertake any specific courses or qualifications in order to work there. One would hope that staff would be properly trained when handling sharp objects and chemical hair dyes but in a lot of cases, they are not.

An unregulated business – You may be surprised to learn that a stylist, or hairdresser, is not legally obliged to register with any official regulating body and that registering a hairdressing business is a voluntary process. In fact, it is estimated that only 5% of hairdressers actually do register their business officially.

They do need to follow regulations when it comes to chemicals – According to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, hairstylists are required by law to follow certain standards when it comes to the storage, use and disposal of certain chemicals. Other legislation states that specific chemicals which can be found in hair dyes are banned for use by hair stylists.

The fact that hairdressing is not an officially regulated business does not mean that you are not protected by law and, should you be the victim of any injury sustained while at a hairdressing salon, or while you are receiving treatment in your own home from a professional hair stylist, you should seek medical and legal advice as soon as possible.

Any business that interacts with the public to a certain extent, or has a premises open to the public, needs to have public liability insurance so that if any customers are injured they can be adequately compensated.
