More about Hairdressers Insurance

Standard cover

Buildings, contents and equipment cover for hairdressers

The contents of your salon, specialist equipment and stock you carry around with you deserve proper protection. Not only are they your livelihood but a total loss from fire or theft could be devastating. We offer contents cover in amounts set by you which can be set to increase with seasonal changes. If you own your own building, we can provide building insurance too.

Liability insurance for hairdressers

Hairdressing isn't fire juggling, it’s not the riskiest business out there, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider getting hairdresser public liability insurance. Any accident to a customer or member of public caused as a result of your business could potentially leave you liable for huge compensation claims. This is when a specialist policy, which is designed for unique risks specific to an industry makes more sense.

Protection for your hairdressing business

Business insurance is more than just liability and stock insurance. We want to understand your business to provide protection that fits you and offer a range of optional covers based on your risks. If you employ staff you need employers' liability insurance by law, which we can include in your hairdressers' insurance. We can also discuss covers for keeping large amounts of cash on your premises and business interruption insurance to protect your profits.

Insurance for a range of hair treatments

Our hairdressers insurance is valid for salons offering tinting, perming, crimping, extensions, straightening, colouring, barbering, hair styling, permanent waving, plaiting and use of Yuko hair straighteners. See your policy document for a full list of hair treatments covered.
