Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Hair is big business. The styling, the cutting and the color can cost you hundreds of dollars a pop.

But you may want to start checking the license of the person who is working on your hair.

And now some people are finding out the hard way.

Clients are complaining about chemical burns or even stylists using super glue on hair extensions.

"I was terrified, my hair was destroyed."

Even people inside the salon industry admit there's a problem with unlicensed stylists.

"This is as serious as going to a doctor that's not licensed or any other profession," said Anthony Civitano of Hair Design Institute.
