Somerset council issues warning about unsafe beauty salons

Bath and North East Somerset council urged residents to use reputable beauty salons after successfully prosecuting a business that did not have adequate infection control procedures in place.

The incident occurred at American Nails in Westgate Street, Bath, when a woman’s toe was cut during a pedicure treatment, which was carried out by an unqualified member of staff. The salon was also offering semipermanent make-up treatments without the proper registration.

Councillor Martin Veal said: “Businesses that offer these services should be safe, clean and legitimate. We take the issue of public health very seriously…and we are keen to work with local businesses and recommend they contact us for advice and information about good practice.”
