Why do hairdressers and beauticians need hair and beauty insurance?
Hair and beauty liability and products insurance is designed to help with legal costs if your treatments, your products or business activities harm a client or a member of the public, or damage their property. For example, if you burned someone while straightening their hair and they took legal action you could use your insurance to cover your costs.
Cover for tools and equipment might come in handy if your scissors, blades or any other equipment is stolen.
Employers' liability cover is a legal requirement if you have any employees working for you, including volunteers or people doing work experience.
Personal accident cover offers a payout if a director or employee is injured as a result of your business.
