Cosmetology refers to study of beauty treatments, and cosmetology expert witnesses and consultants have experience in various cosmetic products and treatments. A consulting cosmetologist may be required as a means for attorneys to access expertise regarding the research and development of skin and hair treatments, standard of care, and business-related aspects of the beauty industry. As with any product or service made for general consumers, various situations may lead to litigation, such as a personal injury, product defect, deceptive marketing, or an adverse reaction to a chemical found within certain cosmetic products.
Cosmetology expert witnesses are often from a background involving the various aspects of beauty schools and institutes, including the school administrations behind such programs. In addition to the education experience required of the field, many cosmetology expert witnesses are also knowledgeable in the business plans and business administrations operating within the beauty industry, which may be highly relevant in the event of litigation involving the more business-oriented details of cosmetology.
Cosmetology expert witnesses might be experienced with the various chemicals utilized by the cosmetology industry in the research and development stages of numerous beauty products, making the use of labels and warnings an important aspect of such products for the safety of consumers. Failing to implement certain rules and regulations regarding the materials testing of products for the purpose of employee safety would also be grounds for potential litigation.
