West Bend’s program is specifically designed for cosmetologists, barbers, nail technicians, estheticians, and massage therapists, all independent contractors renting space from salon owners.
As an independent contractor, you need to carry your own insurance. Most salon owners who rent out booths don’t provide insurance for the self–employed professional. If you don’t have insurance, you could be risking your income and professional reputation. Insurance provides coverage that protects you from the financial impact of a liability claim like a slip and fall, chemical damage, burns, or cuts.

General liability, often referred to as business liability insurance, is coverage to protect you from claims including bodily injury, property damage, and personal injury arising from your business operations. General liability can protect you if you’re sued by someone who trips over your chair or table, incurs physical injuries caused by your products, or on whose expensive purse or coat you spill hair dye or oils.
Professional liability insurance provides coverage to pay for claims arising out of the rendering of or failure to render professional services in connection with your beauty operation as a hairdresser, nail technician, masseuse, or esthetician. Also known as malpractice insurance, professional liability insurance protects you if a client sues you over an alleged professional mistake, even if you didn’t make a mistake, but a client claims you did.
