Every Woman Is At Risk of 4 Types Of Beauty Salon Injuries

It is important for every lady to know that saloons are full of hazards because they often use chemicals, heat and sharp tools. As a result, accidents can happen naturally, even though sometimes it can occur due to worker negligence.

Unfortunately, some of these hair salon accidents do not only hurt, but can also cause you money and leave permanent scars on your body.

Below are some common injuries at a beauty salon:

1. Slip-and-fall Accidents.

Electric cables, wet floors and customer property on the floor could all lead to slips and falls. This could happen on your way in, and just like that, you may break a tooth or worse.

In order to avoid this, the salon owners are advised to always keep their floors dry and clean. As a matter of fact, more serious falls could even result in death, and as the owner, you'll certainly be held responsible.

2. Burns:

You could suffer burns from the following:

A. Chemical Burns On The Face.

You'll agree with me that people who have either pimples or acne often apply chemical peels to remove damaged skin layers in order to achieve smooth skin.

If the procedure is done by an untrained employee or use the wrong treatment, there is a likelihood of burns.

B. Scalp Burns

Hair dyes and treatment cold result in severe scalp burns and permanent hair loss. The beautician should take all necessary precautions to make sure that you are comfortable and safe.

Some of the common mistakes that could result in scalp burns include leaving the dye on your scalp for a longer period of time, failure to take a sensitive spot test and using the wrong chemical mixture.

C. Waxing Burns.

Improper waxing on delicate body parts like the bikini area and armpits could result in blisters, severe burns and long-lasting pain. If any of this happens to you, you deserve to be compensated for the discomfort and pain caused.

D. Laser Burns.

Possible laser hair removal risk include burns, skin sensitivity, excessive hair removal, infection and removing hair in the wrong location.

3. Cuts

Nail cutters, scissors, shears and other sharp objects in the salon can send you home with cuts. If a stylist cut your body because they are either chatting with a fellow staff, talking on the phone, concentrating on the salon TV or involved in activities that took his/her attention from you, you should be compensated.

4. Infections.

Since hair salons are public places, they are prone to bacteria and germs that cause infections. The owners of the salon should take all the necessary precautions to make sure that the premises are clean.

Shared tools like nail cutters, clippers and scissors spread infections to customers if they are not properly sterilized. If you have developed scalp ringworms or nail infections after a salon visit, you might stand a chance for compensation.
