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.

Hairdresser insurance policy details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you rent the premises, check with your landlord to see what’s already covered by your rent
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
