Lady Sues For Badly Performed Hollywood Waxing Treatment

Case Study - Torn Skin From Hollywood Wax

Ms W was having a Hollywood waxing treatment (also known as a full Bikini wax) carried out at her local beauty salon, in advance of a summer holiday with her family. A trainee beautician had started work at the salon the previous week, and was detailed to perform Ms W’s waxing treatment. When the time came to remove the waxing strips, the beautician failed to make sure that the delicate skin around the labia was stretched tight enough, and used too much force in the removal process. As one strip was pulled off, Ms W’s skin was torn halfway down the length of her vagina, and began to bleed. Ms W was later forced to go to hospital, where doctors applied stitches to the laceration. Ms W was in pain for weeks following the accident, ruining her holiday and causing considerable emotional distress for a period.

Our Legal Advice

Ms W was deeply upset by the whole incident, and got in touch with Bartletts Solicitors on her return from holiday. On our advice she decided to proceed with a compensation claim against the beauty salon that carried out her treatment. We wrote to them, pointing out that Ms W had had Hollywood waxes performed before without any problems. In this instance, poor technique on the part of the trainee beautician had caused the tear to Ms W’s vagina. In legal terminology, the procedure had not been carried out in a ‘reasonably competent’ manner, and this made the salon’s owners negligent, and in breach of the duty of care they owed Ms W. The beauty salon’s insurers admitted liability relatively swiftly in this case, and Ms W received £3,250 in compensation.
