Tightly sewn weave leaves woman fearing she will be scarred for life

A 24 year-old woman from Leeds has been left with a six inch wound in her forehead, after she received a weave treatment from a beautician.

Despite initially raising her concerns with the beautician over the tightness of the wig, she was told to ignore it and that it was something she would get used to.

Weeks passed without improvement, until the woman woke up in the middle of the night with blood gushing down her face.

Horrified, she looked in the mirror to see that a six inch gash had opened up on her head.

It was later discovered that the weave had been sewed so tightly by the beautician that it had penetrated her scalp.

In an attempted response to the effects of the £200 treatment, she was then placed on an antibiotic drip by her local hospital.

However, it is now feared that the scar may be visible for life.

If you have suffered an injury from a weave, braid or relaxer treatment, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee compensation claim. We act for a number of clients who have suffered similar injuries and it is important that you get independent, expert legal advice, preferably as soon as possible, from our specialist lawyers.

Just to say big THANK YOU for your time yesterday. You have explained things very clearly and easy to understand.

I felt you are very good at what you doing and you took your time with me, despite you knew this was more likely to fail. I felt very comfortable with your over the phone especially that English is not my first language and you are very friendly and patient. I spoke to others about my child’s accident and you were THE BEST PERSON to speak to! Just wanted you to know that.

Ms A F

There has been excellent communication throughout the entire claim process. I was kept unto date with all the information from Sainsburys and the outcome has been excellent. Thank you to all involved.
