We are in a recession and everyone is being impacted in some way, shape or form. When one person in the household loses or experiences a decrease in their income, everyone has to make cutbacks. Sometimes the sacrifices the family makes are as simple as skipping a vacation or vacationing somewhere local. Other times the change is as drastic as selling the family home in favor of a modest apartment in a less expensive area. Of course there are examples of other degrees of things done to save money from bartering services to changing grocery stores to changing salons. These changes often build character and help the family grow. They are also difficult decisions for anyone to make, even individuals without families.

Most people who go to salons trust the employees and they have a relationship of some sort with them, even if they only see them once a month. People go to salons more regularly in the warmer months for services such as pedicures and waxing. These services may seem cosmetic but can be very dangerous. . I have gone to salons and heard people say I am ok with paying extra because it is clean and I trust the staff. In situations where finances are tight, one may not be able to afford the extra and would find the need to change salons. It is important in these situations to choose a reputable one in order to protect your health.
Personal injuries are serious and should be handled. In some less expensive salons, the staff may cut costs by skimping on the quality of the products used or by cutting corners on the process used to discard or maintain the sanitation of the tools used. Error like this can lead to things like fungal infections and the spread of venereal diseases. If a tub is not properly cleaned between uses and/or tools are not sterilized, then there is a risk of passing one persons bacteria or illness to another person. During a bikini wax, if the instrument is dipped into the wax multiple times, the germ/bacteria can be transferred into the wax and then onto the next customer.
In cases where you can no longer afford some of the luxuries that you once afforded, it is always good advice to take it in stride. It is best to be prudent and carefully scrutinize the alternatives. I always tell people you have the right to ask for new tools and to be picky about what is used on you. You also have the right to leave if the conditions do not look sanitary.
If you have been injured by a salon that you trusted, immediately seek medical care. Once the issue is diagnosed and a plan of care is made, call an attorney to protect your legal rights.
