This esthetician case involves an adolescent who went for a hair treatment at a local beauty salon in Rhode Island. The hair stylist did not ask the plaintiff about any allergy history or aversion to certain products before applying the treatment product, which was intended to impart a permanent curl in the customer’s hair. The plaintiff’s scalp started to burn immediately after the treatment was applied. Nevertheless, the product was removed using a cleaning rinse and was once again reapplied. The plaintiff subsequently suffered chemical burns requiring multiple surgeries to repair, and suffers from permanent disfigurement.
