What insurance do hairdressers need?

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for hairdressers, providing protection for if someone is injured or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you. Together, these two core covers will provide the foundation of your hairdressing insurance.

You can also add other covers such as business equipment insurance, tools insurance and business premises insurance.

The average insurance claim for hairdressers is £4,366 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £4,366. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
