Contrary to what some people might believe, it takes no small amount of training to become a fully qualified hair stylist. When you think about it, this is a good thing. If you care about your hair, the last thing you’ll want is somebody who doesn’t know what they’re doing messing about with it.
Aside from spoiling your look, using a poorly-trained hairdresser could actually result in you suffering an injury as a result if an accident that was not your fault. If you were going in for nothing more than a quick trim, this would be unlikely. If however you were having a more involved treatment carried out, there will be a chance that you could very well end up being hurt if the person tending to your hair was not too sure of what they were doing.
If you were ever unfortunate enough to find yourself in this most unfortunate predicament, there is a chance that you might well be able to retain the services of a decent 100% no-win, no-fee solicitor in Battersea Park with a view to suing the salon that employed the substandard hairdresser for compensation.
Bad hairdressers and solicitors in Battersea Park
Imagine that you were going in for a quick colour treatment at your local salon but your usual stylist, is off ill for the day. You’ve never had any problems at the salon before so you agree. If there is no skin patch test before applying the colouring chemicals to your hair and after some time you feel a very uncomfortable burning sensation on your head that gets worse, you’ll know you’re in trouble.
There have been instances where people have suffered awful pain, and burns, and have had to receive medical treatment for injuries received at hair dressing salons. It is not unknown for victims to suffer second-degree burns to the head when mistakes have been made with a colorant.
