As the owner of a beauty salon and a beauty professional yourself, you have a uniquely-fulfilling job. You, and those who work at your salon, help people look and feel their best. You worked hard to establish your business, and it’s our job to protect you from things that might threaten your success. In any line of work, accidents happen, and the risks double for people who own a business. Protect yourself and your beauty or bodywork business with the right beauty insurance coverage.
Beauty insurance protects you and your livelihood. As the owner of a beauty salon, defending a liability claim can be expensive, costing thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Without professional beauty and bodywork insurance, you could risk losing your hard-earned business, future earnings, reputation, and valuable property. Your credit score could also go down, making it harder to get your business back up and running.
In addition, if you rent chairs or space to independent contractors, you may be responsible for their acts, and that’s another great reason to make sure you have the right insurance. If an independent contractor doesn’t have insurance, the injured party may look to you and your salon when seeking recovery for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Professional liability insurance - This insurance will cover any potential risk that comes with your profession. If, for example, a client who is cut or burned during styling seeks damages from you for a bodily injury or emotional distress claim, professional liability insurance will protect you.
General liability insurance - All small businesses should have general liability insurance. This insurance will protect you if anyone is injured because they tripped over your chair or one of your cords.
