What you need to know about beauty treatment compensation claims

To make a beauty treatment compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis contact our free legal helpline.

When a beautician carries out a cosmetic service, they must exercise a reasonable degree of care and skill. If they fail to do so you may be able to make a beauty treatment compensation claim  against them.

Things you should consider before undergoing beauty treatment

You should always carry out research prior to booking a treatment. It is advisable to check that the salon is registered with The British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology. It is also a very good idea to attend a pre-treatment consultation with your beautician. During this consultation, the beautician should obtain essential information about your health, skin type and if necessary carry out a patch test. The beautician should then advise whether the treatment is suitable for you. During the consultation, you should ask to see evidence that the salon and beautician is fully insured.

If possible, you should pay using your credit card. If the treatment does go wrong, you may be entitled to claim against the credit card company in accordance with the Consumer Credit Act 1974.
