Q #3: My hairdresser totally butchered my hair! Can I sue?
A: That depends on what exactly she did. Did you just get what you consider an unattractive haircut? In that case no, a lawsuit would likely not be successful. In Texas, there is no valid tort claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress without some personal injury. The mental anguish you experience from a bad haircut is not something for which you can recover damages. However, if the hairdresser burned your scalp, cut you, or destroyed your hair with dyes or perm solution, you MAY have a case. It will depend on how much a jury believes that is worth.
