Your insurance policy may not specify an age limit, however it will require you to follow manufacturer’s or colour brand instructions in relation to the use of their products.

Hairdressing salons that fail to adhere to the prescribed guidelines regarding hair dye products are potentially endangering the lives of children. According to both manufacturers and the professional body governing the hairdressing industry, individuals under the age of 16 should not be subjected to the use of any hair dye products. In some rare instances, the presence of chemicals in hair dyes can potentially lead to severe allergic reactions.

Hair colour manufacturers make it clear that use on under 16s should not be carried out. Therefore if you do, you are NOT covered.
