What insurance do mobile hairdressers need?

Public liability insurance

Because you’re in close contact with clients and you visit them at home, public liability insurance will probably be central to your mobile hairdresser insurance policy. This cover protects you if a client or another member of the public sues you for injury or damage. For example if you made a burn hole in your client’s carpet with a pair of hair straighteners, or if a chemical caused damage to a client’s scalp. Your public liability policy could cover the legal fees and the compensation payment, which may take into account costs like medical bills and lost income.

Other covers

Other insurance options that you could consider adding to your mobile hairdresser policy include cover for your business equipment, your tools, and your stock. And if you employ anyone (including contractors, temporary staff or apprentices), you’re probably legally required to have employers’ liability insurance.

The average insurance claim for a mobile hairdresser is £5,376 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £5,376. 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.
