The case of a Southall beauty salon being fined because it did not have the correct licence from Ealing council to carry out acrylic nail treatments highlights the importance of going to a safe and legitimate salon. This is the third case to be successfully prosecuted in recent months.
Under the Local Authorities Act, licences need to be obtained from the council to provide special treatments, which include things like acrylic nail treatments, manicures and ear piercing.
Licences are only granted to beauty salons that are offering treatments by qualified professionals using safe and hygienic methods.
Angels Nails in South Ealing has all the necessary licences and lots of happy customers - just see their testimonials.
