€38k salon case dropped
A WOMAN who alleged her hair turned orange after a botch-up colour job has withdrawn a €38,000 damages claim against her hairdresser.
Deborah McLoughlin, of Kilworth Road, Drimnagh, Dublin, had told the Circuit Civil Court that on November 14, 2008, she had been to Charles Hair Salon to have her hair coloured.
She told the court a junior member of staff had mixed and applied the colour but after rinsing, her hair had turned orange. A second colour had been applied by manager Philip Hannigan and shortly afterwards her scalp had started "sizzling"and she had suffered burns and blisters the following day.
She sued Mr Hannigan, who trades as Charles Hair Salon, of Whitehall Road, Terenure, Dublin, for damages. Mr Hannigan denied liability.
However yesterday the court was told that the case was being withdrawn and there was no necessity for any order.
No further details were outlined to court.
