Negligent Beauty Salons

Beauty salons and beauty therapists are enjoying record profits as customers take advantage of cheaper deals and a wider variety of treatments. Too often however therapists are unqualified or inexperienced in the procedures they perform. They owe a duty of care to their clients and must take all reasonable measures to protect their health and safety.


Negligent Hairdressers

Hairdressing is an unregulated industry in the UK, and with over 35,000 hair styling salons across the country, it is no surprise that service standards vary. Injuries at the hairdresser can be both physically and emotionally distressing, often resulting in ongoing medical expenses, time off work, and the cancellation of holidays and special occasions.


Negligent Laser Clinics

The majority of the estimated 10,000 private clinics providing cosmetic laser and IPL treatments in the UK are unregulated, despite the well-known risks that such procedures can involve, including burns, scarring and infections.

  • Hair and Beauty Industry Regulation Debate
With barbershops and beauty salons ranking as the two most popular retail businesses to open in 2017 (and with nail bars ranked fifth), the lack of regulation of the hair, beauty and cosmetic industry in the UK continues to cause controversy. Our firm supports the efforts of various industry bodies and politicians to introduce industry-wide safety standards, and aims to keep our website visitors up to date on this evolving situation.

The Hair Council has been pushing for the mandatory registration of hair salons for a number of years, and the debate appears to be moving in that direction following a meeting between the Council and the then Prime Minister David Cameron, and the formation of an All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Hair Industry in early 2018 to ‘promote the role of qualified, professional hairdressers and barbers, and facilitate an informed debate amongst parliamentarians regarding all aspects of the industry.’

In line with this regulatory pressure on hairdressers, in March 2018, the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners launched a voluntary register for practitioners of non-surgical cosmetic treatments (including laser treatments, chemical skin peels, dermal fillers and injectables) at a House of Lords reception attended by all the major industry bodies. It is clear that safety standards in the wider beauty industry are finally being taken seriously at the highest levels, leaving supporters of registration and industry regulation optimistic for the future.
