Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Yes, you can sue the salon and the salon girl for negligence and receive damages for the cost of correcting or the value of the permanent disfigurement if the damage is not correctable.

If the claim does not exceed $7000 you can sue in small claims court. Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
